It must be tough work being a world-renowned, treasure-hunting computer game star and sex symbol for an army of geeky people, and even some not-so-geeky ones. Which is why even Lara Croft needs time to relax by the sea.
But she can’t like dealing with the sleazy advances of some of her male fans whilst catching the rays. Now she need worry no longer. She (well, actress Karima Adebibe) opened the first women-only beach in Italian resort Riccione last week.
To add insult to injury to the local pariahs (men), the “Pink Beach” opening was held in conjunction with the Miss Muretto beauty contest, which, according to Eidos, is “similar to the Miss Italy contest but for younger girls”. The Diary is halting any further enquiries into that right now.
