Mystery woman gives tease: “I am the new Lara Croft” [Update] February 20, 2009

Cinematical is sharing a “post-worthy” bit on the next Lara Croft actress for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. They’ve apparently received an e-mail from a mystery woman who is declaring that “I am the next Lara Croft.”

The folks over at Cinematical are saying she might be Emily Blunt or Amy Adams, “based on that sensual-but-oh-so-sweet look she gives the camera,” but, really…

More on this as it develops, if it does (which it won’t).

Update: Turns out the mystery woman is actually Elisabeth Rappe, writer for Cinematical. Her February ’09 headshot on Facebook confirms as much…and, well, those eyes are obviously hers. Thanks, Quasimodo!

For the record, the idea was entirely my editor, and the words all his. I merely agreed to pose for the photo.

I’m sorry my looks offended everyone’s sensibilities so much.

Hi Elisabeth. The article was a tad misleading, and a little unbelievable, especially since the speculation about the mystery woman being Amy Adams or Emily Blunt sounded a like a serious wager (which made it quite humorous). I’d like to emphasize though that in no way do we intend to offend you.

The article simply states all there is state. That Cinematical picked up a mystery e-mail and that the writer (your editor) speculates its Blunt or Adams, and that ultimately it turned out to be a fun moment over at Cinematical. Sorry if in anyway the article came off offensive to you.
