Hollywood siren Megan Fox, who was supposed to replace Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider 3, has reportedly refused the offer now as she feels people will compare her with Jolie.
The Transformers star doesn’t want people to talk further about her likeness with the 34-year-old actress, who portrayed Croft in the previous two movies, AceShowbiz reported.
“The offer has been on the table for Fox for a while but she’s reluctantly turned it down. She’s the logical choice to play Lara and she loves the character but the comparison with Angelina is too much,” a source said.
Since Fox has turned down the offer, an insider claims it is likely that the movie “will now star an unknown.” Tomb Raider 3 will serve as the follow-up to the previously successful movies in the franchise, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.
