Angelina Jolie has accused Megan Fox of "copying" her style.
The 'Tomb Raider' actress is reportedly furious the 23-year-old star is being lined up to play action hero Lara Croft in the next instalment of the film franchise.
Angelina, 33 - who portrayed the gun-slinging archaeologist in the first two films - has told friends she doesn't think Megan can "handle" the part.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Angelina was intent on reprising her role. She feels it's something she helped define and feels robbed that it looks likely to be handed to someone who she considers less capable than her.
"Angelina believes Megan won't do the Lara Croft character justice. She's also annoyed because she thinks Megan copies everything from her, from her tattoos to her style."
Film sources claim it makes sense to give the part to Megan because it is a prequel that is set years before the first two movies.
If Megan does land the role, Angelina is reportedly planning to show she is still the queen of action films.
An insider said: "Angelina is collaborating on a concept with a new sexy female action character which will absolutely blow Megan out of the water."
