Lara has “everything that a man would like to meet,” says Carroll
You couldn’t make this up. New Lara model Alison Carroll reckons Lara Croft has all the things a man wants in a woman.
“She’s got everything that a woman aspires to be like and everything that a man would like to meet,” she told the BBC.
Carroll’s comments came after her faff was smeared all over the internet this morning is some fairly astonishing bury-me-in-a-y-shaped-coffin promotional shots.
Despite the ignominy, though, Alison’s up-beat about the whole affair. And why not? Before landing the Lara job she was a receptionist gymnast in Croyden. As you do.
“It’s an amazing opportunity,” she said. “Lara is strong, athletic, confident and independent so it’s a huge responsibility to take on her role.”
