Life of Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie, originally known as Angelina Jolie Voight, is an American actress and director who is famous for her sex appeal, edginess, and humanitarian work. She was born on June 4, 1975, in Los Angeles, California, USA. Jolie won an Academy Award for her supporting role as a mental patient in the film “Girl, Interrupted” released in 1999.

During her early life, Angelina Jolie, the daughter of actor Jon Voight, spent much of her childhood in New York before moving to Los Angeles at the age of 11. She attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute for two years and later enrolled at Beverly Hills High School. She also studied drama at New York University. Apart from acting in theater productions, she worked as a model and appeared in music videos.

Jolie’s first significant movie role was in “Hackers” in 1995, where she met her first husband, British actor Jonny Lee Miller. The film did not gain much popularity, and a series of subsequent movies she appeared in also failed to find a large audience. However, in 1997, Jolie gained considerable attention for her portrayal of the wife of Alabama’s segregationist governor in the television movie “George Wallace,” which earned her a Golden Globe Award. The following year, she played a supermodel struggling with drug addiction in the HBO movie “Gia,” for which she received multiple awards, including a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award. In 1999, she starred in the comedy “Pushing Tin” and got married to Billy Bob Thornton, though the marriage ended in divorce in 2003.

After her Oscar-winning performance in “Girl Interrupted,” Jolie appeared in a series of action movies. She played notable roles such as the girlfriend of a carjacker in “Gone in Sixty Seconds” (2000), the action packed character in “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” (2001) and its sequel “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” (2003), and the mother of Alexander the Great in Oliver Stone’s “Alexander” (2004). She also starred in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” (2005), where she met Brad Pitt, who would later become her partner.

In 2006, Jolie portrayed the aggrieved wife of an early CIA agent in “The Good Shepherd.” She received critical acclaim for her performance as Mariane Pearl in “A Mighty Heart” (2007), based on the true story of the efforts to rescue her husband, Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered by Islamic extremists in Pakistan. Jolie continued to take on diverse roles, including appearances in “Beowulf” (2007), “Wanted” (2008), and “Changeling” (2008), which earned her another Oscar nomination for her portrayal of a mother whose son is kidnapped. She also starred in films like “Salt” (2010), “The Tourist” (2010), “Maleficent” (2014) and its sequel (2019), and “Those Who Wish Me Dead” (2021).

Apart from acting, Jolie made her directorial debut in 2011 with the Bosnian-language film “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” which she also wrote. She then directed the World War II drama “Unbroken” (2014) and the drama “By the Sea” (2015), in which she also starred alongside Brad Pitt. In 2017, she directed “First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers,” an adaptation of Loung Ung’s memoir about her experiences during the Khmer Rouge regime.

Throughout her career, Jolie has also provided voices for animated films such as the “Kung Fu Panda” series and “The One and Only Ivan” (2020).

Angelina Jolie’s talent and versatility as an actress and her efforts in humanitarian work have made her one of the most recognized and respected figures in the entertainment industry.
