Lara Croft among others has established her as a top rung actor of Hollywood. She is also better known for her charitable work and is the UN’s Goodwill Ambassador for Refugees. Apart from her acting and charity work, Angelina is known for her tattoos and her ‘on the face’ relationship (read marriage) with Brad Pitt, which now appears to be on the verge of annulment.
Born in Los Angeles, California, on June 4 1975 to John Voight and Marcheline Bertnard, Angelina Jolie Vought unwittingly took a liking to acting and absorbed its nuances from her actor parents. As a child she was fond of the television series, StarTrek and Disney. Interestingly, her schooling at Beverly High School was not that great as she was teased and bullied for her ‘looks,’ which did scar her emotionally for some time.
Her interest in acting took her to Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, the very institute where her mother too was an alumnus. Thereafter, her stint at New York University to study films and at the Met Theatre Group further honed her acting skills.
Early Life of Jolie
In the nineties, Angelina essayed several roles like Hackers, Foxfire, True Woman and George Wallace – the latter even brought her the prestigious Golden Globe award and an Emmy nomination.
Her critical acclaim went several notches upwards when she did a HBO film called Gia. The hard hitting role got her a second Golden Globe award, a SAG award and a second Emmy nomination.
Career & Winning Moments
Her winning streak continued with films such as The Bone Collector (with Denzil Washington as her co actor), and Girl, Interrupted. Her role in Girl, Interrupted was admired by one and all and got her the best supporting actress award at the Oscars. The choice of her films brought her kudos from critics and fans alike – be it in the espionage thriller The Tourist with Johnny Depp, as a wronged spy in Salt, an assassin in Wanted, or as a feisty mother who fights for her kidnapped son in Challenging.
Awards & Achievements
An important turning point came in her life when she saw the grinding poverty in Cambodia, the shoot locale of her film Lara Croft the Tomb Raider. This was a moment of reckoning for her as she became a passionate crusader who took up issues of Refugees worldwide. In fact, recognising her passionate espousal of Refugee issues, she was made the Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR. With several awards in her kitty – Oscar and Golden Globe among them, Angelina’s acting prowess does not need any confirmation.
Her personal life has been the talk of the town, be it the first marriage with her Hacker co star, Johnny Miller, the second marriage with academy award winner actor Billy Bob Thornton or the most recent one with actor Brad Pitt that even got the couple a name, Brangelina. She created a sensation in 2013 by undergoing mastectomy as she was diagnosed with carrying

She created a sensation in 2013 by undergoing mastectomy as she was diagnosed with carrying a cancer causing gene BRCA1. Needless to say, her life choices, bold and beautiful, have made her a role model of sorts.
