Who is Angelina Jolie?
Angelina Jolie is a 42 year- old actress and director. She won an Oscar for her role in Girl. She is best-known for her starring role in the original Tomb Raider movie franchise. Born and bred in LA, she is the daughter of veteran actor and star of Deliverance, Jon Voight, and actress Marcheline Bertrand, who died in 2007.
From a young age Angelina exhibited an eccentric personality and mental instability. Her career has been characterised by dramas in her personal life. She wore a vial of her boyfriend Billy Bob Thorton's blood around her neck, and likes to kiss her own brother on the red carpet. What an odd person!
What movies has Angelina been in?
Angelina made her silver screen debut in her dad's movie 'Lookin' To Get Out'. During the 90s Angelina's career took off, beginning with sci-fi action flick Cyborg 2 and leading to roles in Mojave Moon, Playing God and The Bone Collector.
After 2010 she had a variety of movie projects to choose from and went for Salt, The Tourist and Maleficent.
As a director, Angelina has combined her humanitarian concerns with her work, making A Place In Time, In The Land Of Blood and Honey, Unbroken and First They Killed My Father.
She also played in romantic drama By The Sea with Brad Pitt (2015). In 2007 she also played Grendel's mother in Beowulf.
Angelina Jolie has had a personal life as bizarre and dramatic as those of the characters she's played on screen!
What about her personal life?
Angelina is currently married to but in the middle of a divorce with Brad Pitt. The pair got together while making Mr and Mrs Smith, when he was still married to Jennifer Aniston.
Since then Angelina and Brad starred together in one other film 'By The Sea', which was a critical failure.
Brad is not Angelina's first husband. She was married with Jonny Lee Miller from 1996 to 1999. In 2000 Angelina married Billy Bob Thornton but they split up 3 months after adopting a child in 2003.
Two years later she and Brad began their ''Brangelina'' love affair and she got pregnant with his child in 2006
How much is Angelina Jolie worth?
The Hollywood actress is reportedly worth £122 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Last year alone, it was reported that the Academy Award-winning actress earned a staggering £11 million.
Her wealth combined with Brad Pitt’s wealth stands at estimated £300m, much of it being tied up in their global property empire.
What humanitarian work has Angelina done?
When Angelina was 26 she became the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and her image began to change dramatically.
She first became interested in the effects of humanitarian crisis while filming in war-torn Cambodia for Tomb Raider.
Since then she has worked with refugees in many countries, travelling to war zones to help them, as well as fighting for land and animal conservation, women's rights, education, child immigration to more developed countries and the prevention of sexual violence- the last issue leading her to work with William Hague.
