She’s a sultry actress who commands up to $30 million per film and still the Los Angeles native, Angelina Jolie, is as well known for her movie star power as she is for her personal life and humanitarian efforts. Born Angelina Jolie Voight in 1975 to Hollywood actor Jon Voight and model Marcheline Bertrand, Jolie studied at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute as a teen and for a short time attended New York University. The 1990’s marked official stardom for Jolie, After giving a star-making performance in the 1998 television movie Gia, Jolie won a Golden Globe, and only a year later, she won her first Academy Award® for her role in the 1999 drama film Girl, Interrupted. Jolie expanded her acting credentials with action-filled roles in movies such as the Lara Croft films, Taking Lives (2004), Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005), and The Good Shepherd (2006), along with dramatic portrayals in 2007’s A Mighty Heart, which chronicles the story of the then-pregnant widow of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. In Clint Eastwood’s 2008 film, Changeling, Jolie played Christine Collins, a mother whose son reappears after he was kidnapped, for which she received a second Oscar®. The action-genre would remain a winner for Jolie, as she took on in both Salt and The Tourist in 2010, and in Disney Maleficent in 2014. Yet Jolie’s leading parts have never taken a back seat to her personal life, with much attention given to her high-profile off-screen marriages to Hackers co-star Jonny Lee Miller, Oscar-winning actor Billy Bob Thornton, and her long-term romance with Hollywood favorite, Brad Pitt. Fueling the papparazzi obsession, Jolie has adopted three children, has three children with Pitt, and serves as a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency.
