Angelina Jolie Angry About Alicia Vikander ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot?
Angelina Jolie is NOT angry about Alicia Vikander taking over her Lara Croft role in a Tomb Raider reboot, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s not true.
A so-called “source” tells Star, “Angie couldn’t have made it more obvious how much she disapproves. Hours after Alicia was cast, Angie told producers she was backing out of a planned cameo. It was a very ungracious and bitchy thing to do.” The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to claim that Vikander “couldn’t care less what Angie thinks,” and believes “Angie’s Tomb Raider movies were good, but in definite need of a refresh.” The “source” continues, “Alicia doesn’t need Angelina’s approval or her friendship.”
Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a reliable source close to Jolie, who exclusively tells us the actress “turned down the opportunity long ago to resume her role as Lara Croft” and “was never planning on a cameo.” We’re further told that Jolie has absolutely no issues with Vikander starring in the upcoming reboot and the claim otherwise is simply untrue.
Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by the tabloid’s tall tale, as Gossip Cop has called out Star for publishing false stories about both actresses. We recently debunked the magazine’s cover story alleging Jolie wanted Brad Pitt back. Additionally, Gossip Cop corrected the publication for wrongly reporting that Vikander was hooking up with Matt Damon. There was no truth to either of those claims, and the same goes for this latest one.
