Angelina Jolie was astounded when movie bosses decided to remove her "lovely" nipples from posters promoting LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER: THE CRADLE OF LIFE.

The stunning actress appears in a skintight catsuit in posters promoting the 2003 film, but bosses decided it was in poor taste to include her protruding nipples, so they were edited out.

Jolie says, "I still can't get over that they airbrushed my nipples out of the posters for Lara. Look at that. No nipples.

"I think it's rather strange and odd. Nipples are lovely."
