Is it too late? I am 42 and fat.

Same here. Except I was Angelina Jolie's body double in the films, did you not see me? grin

Disclaimer: The above fact may not be true. But I did name my cat Lara.....

Course not, think positive!

I presume you've grown a plait already?

Quinteszilla Sun 23-Mar-14 16:05:11

I am working on the plait. I have 40 cm to go. At least the plait is achievable!

JeanSeberg Sun 23-Mar-14 16:06:16

I bet on some message board in Hollywood somewhere Angelina Jolie is posting about wanting to be Quint and bemoaning the fact that everyone comments on how fit she is in her films when she knows it's really Eddie they are talking about!

It is a bit like I am a rhinoceros, thinking I will turn into a unicorn.

That's the spirit, set yourself some SMART objectives!

Now, what about the guns? Have you bought them yet?

Quinteszilla Sun 23-Mar-14 16:07:27

grin Yes, it must be so.

Quinteszilla Sun 23-Mar-14 16:08:13

I can use my dads guns. (if I can find the key to his gun cupboard)

Lara2 Sun 23-Mar-14 16:10:09

Well, can't you guess who I'd like to be too? grin grin

Lara2 Sun 23-Mar-14 16:11:28

I did have the plait for a while - but it just kept getting in the way.

JeanSeberg Sun 23-Mar-14 16:14:03

You're practically there then, Quint.

Any tool belts lying around to go with the outfit?

Are you already considered a sex symbol in your hood?

Lara2 Get yourself to Claire's, it's where Jolie gets all her accessories from when she's filming the big blockbusters.

(You'll have to plait it yourself though I'm afraid or get one of your people to do it.)

This thread has really cheered me up, glad I'm not the only one with this (irrational) dream wink

Quinteszilla Sun 23-Mar-14 16:50:13

We are all Lara Crofts at heart! grin

The only thing me and Lara Croft have in common is the hair length and excellent eyebrows.

Now to lose the weight and get fit...

And earn a few million

Quinteszilla Sun 23-Mar-14 16:57:42

I am blonde. I cant quite picture a blonde (fat, frumpy unfit) Lara Croft!

KinkyDorito Sun 23-Mar-14 17:05:30

Pic for Quint. I absolutely want to be her too, when she does those bungee ropes in the first one. My untucked tummy would be slapping me in the face if I did it now. We can dream.

JeanSeberg Sun 23-Mar-14 17:07:57

You need to think outside the box. Instead of stealth attacks and expert fighting, blonde Lara prefers to spend her days on the sofa watching The Voice and GBBO while eating take-aways and drinking wine.

She's chilled out a lot over the years and has turned her back on the shallow demands of the gaming industry.

JeanSeberg Sun 23-Mar-14 17:09:12

My untucked tummy would be slapping me in the face if I did it now.

Ha ha fantastic. I'd pay good money to see that at the cinema Kinky.
