London: ‘Avatar’ actress Zoe Saldana, who is being called the "new Angelina Jolie" by some critics, says comparisons with the ‘Tomb Raider’ actress scare her.

"If I think about it in that fashion - then yes it`s scary," a website quoted her as saying.

The comparisons are being made after Saldana`s new movie ‘Colombiana’ in which she plays the role of a revenge-seeking assassin. The role is action-packed like Jolie`s role of Lara Croft in ‘Tomb Raider’.

"But I have been inspired by amazing actresses that have taken amazing risks and opened amazing doors, and I am a product of that and I am honoured to be included in a group of women that have defied their own gravity," she said.
