Rumor: Kim Kardashian To Become The Next Lara Croft
Kim Kardashian is a lot of things, and that includes a nude model for PlayBoy (as tastefully depicted here, I believe). But an actress...?
Well, maybe she is; the hell do we know? According to Showbiz Spy, the curvaceous beauty, currently well known for her TV show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," has a shot at landing the leading lady role in the next "Tomb Raider" movie. She would replace Angelina Jolie and although we know nothing about the project - it could even be a straight-to-video thing, which would be sorta funny - it's still going to be a big deal for Kim. The source in question says:
"This will be something very different to Angelina’s Lara. Kim is wanted to play a far more comic-strip version of Lara which would be shot in 3-D and aimed at a teen audience."
Evidently, Kardashian, 29, has been talking about how she wants to act more, and she even took acting lessons for a guest role on "CSI: NY." Furthermore, it seems she "gets scripts sent to her all the time, but unlike so many other famous people she doesn't just want to make a film without first learning the craft." Well, that's certainly a good idea and even noble in its own way, so if true, we should give the woman credit. It's easy to dismiss this idea as just another hot model looking for another money-making venue. ...and while I still think I'm gonna do that, I will reserve judgment for now.
And besides, I normally don't like searching for new pics for articles. But this time...could've done that a while longer. Jesus...what the hell.
