Alicia Vikander has admitted that Tomb Raider doesn't have enough women in it.
Appearing on last night's (March 5) The One Show to promote the upcoming reboot, Vikander agreed with Alex Jones who said she was "slightly disappointed" that most of the cast were men, "bar two minor roles".
"I got to work with Kristin Scott Thomas and she is an extraordinary actress, but me too, yeah, I agree," she responded. "I was wondering on this island, 'There is not enough women, where are they?' I was running around looking for them!"

Back in 2016, Vikander revealed that Tomb Raider will pass the Bechdel test, meaning it will have at least two women in it talking to each other about something other than a man.
It's worth noting that still seems to be the case, but it's a shame that it doesn't seem to have more women in major roles, aside from Lara Croft and Thomas's Ana Miller who works at the company of Lara's father.
Back in January, Vikander called out Hollywood for its lack of strong female roles.

"It made me realise that strong women are alone, as women, on the big screen. The roles we play are against strong men. I've played four leading roles in a row, and didn't have a single scene with another woman," she explained.
Tomb Raider is released in cinemas on March 16.
