Angelina Jolie Didn't Take Her Kids to See Alicia Vikander's 'Tomb Raider'

Angelina Jolie supported Alicia Vikander‘s turn as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, which opened this weekend!

People is reporting that the 42-year-old director, actress, and humanitarian took her kids, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9, to a Los Angeles screening over the weekend.

If you don’t know, Angelina played Lara Croft in the 2001 movie and the 2003 sequel as well.

Alicia previously spoke about following in Angelina‘s footsteps in the role.

“I think she’s an incredible actress and I also look up to her, being a filmmaker and a producer,” she said. “But I took on this role because I felt like there was really a drive with the people that were already on board on this project, but to make something new.”

UPDATE: A moviegoer just confirmed that Angelina took her children to see Love, Simon not Tomb Raider.

Angelina Jolie Gets Honest About Aging & Using Makeup

Angelina Jolie is featured in InStyle‘s April 2018 issue, out now.

Here’s what the 42-year-old actress had to say…

On expressing herself during her youth: “I’m sure I had my moments when I was little where I would put makeup all over my face, but I was a bit of a tomboy. And then I was a bit of a punk. Nowadays it’s very popular to dye your hair blue, for example. In my day you bleached it and used a Sharpie [for color].”

On needing to use makeup sparingly: “I have very full, big features, so if I did everything, I’d look a bit like a clown. It’d be just…a lot.”

On aging: “I also see myself aging, and I love it because it means I’m alive—I’m living and getting older. Don’t love having a random dark spot from a pregnancy, sure. I see my flaws. But what I see that I like isn’t about a structure or an appearance. It’s more that I see my family in my face. I see my age.”

Original 'Tomb Raider' Director Reveals Why It Was Difficult to Cast Angelina Jolie

Tomb Raider director Simon West is opening up about the difficulty he faced casting Angelina Jolie for the role.

The Lara Croft: Tomb Raider director revealed that when Angelina auditioned for the part, he had difficulty convincing others she was the right person for the job.

“[She] had a great, dark reputation about her. She lived quite an alternative lifestyle and didn’t hold back her words,” he told EW.

“She spoke her mind, and she had a notorious reputation. It was quite hard for me to get her through the approval process at the studio, because I wanted an actress who was going to bring something to the part, and she brought this great Angelina Jolie mythology with her as this dark, crazy, wicked woman with a very particular and interesting personality. I wanted that mythology of Angelina Jolie to fuse with Lara Croft.”

Angelina Jolie Talks About Avoiding an 'Empty Life'

Angelina Jolie is opening up about balancing her work life and her personal life, plus how she avoids living an empty life.

“You have your creative, and you have your work, and every day of your life is going to be about somehow growing as a person,” the 42-year-old Oscar winner told Deadline. “Somehow feeling you can contribute to the extent that you can get tribute.”

“We’re all trying to find balance, as people,” she added. “I think to be a balanced person, you have to find those things that you just purely enjoy. But, of course, if you aren’t participating in the bigger picture of life, and in being somehow useful, and you aren’t doing something and growing, then really, you’ll find you’re not very happy. Really, you’ll have quite an empty life.”

Angelina also makes sure to put in time to her humanitarian work, something that her six kids have been involved in as well.
