Angelina Jolie Takes Kids to Movies on Opening Weekend of 'Tomb Raider' Reboot
By Desiree Murphy
Over the weekend, Angelina Jolie was watching the big screen instead of being on it!
The 42-year-old actress-director and four of the six children she shares with estranged husband Brad Pitt -- Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9 -- were spotted having a family day out at a theater in North Hollywood, California. Sons, Maddox, 16, and Pax, 14, were not spotted.
The Jolie-Pitt brood just so happened to see a movie on the same weekend that Tomb Raider was released. In the reboot, which is in theaters now, Alicia Vikander portrays Lara Croft, a character adapted from a 1996 video game that Jolie originally played in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Jolie reprised the iconic role in 2003 for the sequel, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.
While one source tells ET that Jolie and her family went to see the reboot, another eyewitness at the theater claims they actually saw Love, Simon.
Whether Jolie has seen Tomb Raider yet or not, Vikander has opened up about how the character has changed over the years.
"It's interesting that a character that has been seen as very sexualized back in the '90s is very different now," the 29-year-old actress said Lara Croft in an interview with Marie Claire earlier this month. "If you go out in the street and ask men and women, young and old, what they find attractive, it’s different. You want [Lara] to be attractive and sexy, but, nowadays, you want this to be a girl that fights. Someone who's vulnerable, but funny. Someone who's OK with people seeing her bad sides."
"I wanted to show young girls that it’s cool to be a girl who’s really strong and that watching her, you feel like OK, she might be able to climb that wall," she added. "She might be able to lift her own weight."
Vikander shared similar sentiments while chatting with ET at the Los Angeles premiere of Tomb Raider a few weeks earlier. She told us that the intense training she had to do for the film (she packed on 12 pounds of pure muscle!) has actually inspired her everyday workouts today.
"I think I do much more weight training," she shared. "I've actually gone climbing quite a lot [now]. That was something that I didn't do before I started this film."
