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.
