OK. OK. So she's wearing a tight-fitting silver wet suit and black boots, but don't even think about wolf-whistling Angelina Jolie on the set of LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER: THE CRADLE OF LIFE. This lady looks tough, authoritative, and even scary. She bears about as much resemblance to the pneumatic Eidos game character she's meant to be playing as Darth Vader does to Jake Lloyd. This is Lara grown up, Jolie with steel. Heck, the actress even jokingly eludes to her sometimes bumpy private life, source of a thousand gossip columns.

"Both Lara and me have relationship issues," she giggles. "Lara's a little less cute now, and a little more aggressive. We've tried to mature her and make things a bit more interesting. She's more of a woman now, and she's sexier to me."

To us, too, Angelina... us, too.
