Eccentric actress Angelina Jolie has taken to promoting the health benefits of milk - while wearing her skimpy Lara Croft gear.

The tattooed beauty, who divorced second husband Billy Bob Thornton last month (MAY03), poses in the Tomb Raider heroine's trademark black bikini - accessorised with a milky white moustache.

Lara Croft has already been used to promote energy drink LUCOZADE, and the AMERICAN MILK PROCESSOR EDUCATION PROGRAM - the company behind the Angelina campaign, hopes the profile of the actress will help boost milk consumption.

Chief executive KURT GRAETZER says, "The ad will appeal to male teens because of how gorgeous Angelina Jolie is. But it's also a message for teen girls which is of a healthy, good-looking active woman and they can also be that way if they drink milk."

In the 10 year history of the GOT MILK campaign, more than 175 celebrities have promoted the cow-generated drink, including supermodel Naomi Campbell, Britney Spears and Nelly.
