Jolie ‘furious’ at Megan Fox playing Lara Croft

Megan Fox, Megan Fox, Megan Fox. It’s seemingly all I hear about lately, as America has found yet another relatively hot female to latch onto and saturate the world with until everybody’s bored of her. One person is reportedly already angry at the Megan Fox craze, and she has every right to be — after all, she just stole her role as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider movies.

According to The Sun (so who knows how truthful it is?), Angelina Jolie is “furious” at Megan Fox for being cast as Lara Croft in future Tomb Raider films, believing she’ll be unable to do the character “justice.” The Sun adds that, “She’s also annoyed because she thinks Megan copies everything from her, from her tattoos to her style.” 

Jolie was allegedly intent on reprising the role, and is angry at the idea of someone “less capable” than her taking on a role that she “defined.” 

I can somewhat understand Jolie’s catty bitching. After all, Jolie knows what it’s like to be Hollywood’s latest craze and whored out until everybody’s sick of seeing her face everywhere, and it must be hard when the fickle gossip columns and easily-distracted mainstream audiences find a new human plaything. Jolie just needs to console herself with the fact that, once Megan gets a little older, it’ll happen to her as well. I’m already tired as Hell of hearing her bloody name everywhere.
