Angelina Jolie (born Angelina Jolie Voight; June 4, 1975) is an American
actress. She has received three Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild
Awards, and an Academy Award. Jolie has promoted humanitarian causes throughout
the world, and is noted for her work with refugees as a Goodwill Ambassador for
the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Her off-screen life
is widely reported.
Though she made her screen debut as a child alongside her father Jon Voight in
the 1982 film Lookin' to Get Out, Jolie's acting career began in earnest a
decade later with the low-budget production Cyborg 2 (1993). Her first leading
role in a major film was in Hackers (1995). She starred in the critically
acclaimed biographical films George Wallace (1997) and Gia (1998), and won an
Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the drama Girl,
Interrupted (1999). Jolie achieved wider fame after her portrayal of video game
heroine Lara Croft in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), and since then has
established herself as one of the best-known and highest-paid actresses in
Hollywood. She has had her biggest commercial successes with the
action-comedy Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) and the animated film Kung Fu Panda
(2008).
Divorced from actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, Jolie currently
lives with actor Brad Pitt, in a relationship that has attracted worldwide media
attention. Jolie and Pitt have three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara,
as well as three biological children, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne.
