Angelina Jolie Biography
Angelina Jolie Voight, who now goes simply by Angelina Jolie, was born in Los Angeles, California in June of 1975 to actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. Her parents separated when she was only a year old. Her mother had to abandon her acting career to raise her children, but Jolie often watched films with her mother, which inspired her to become an actress. When Jolie was 11, she enrolled at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, where she trained for two years.
She attended Beverly Hills High School but didn’t fit in well. She dropped out for a short time before graduating from an alternative high school and then returned to theater studies. She appeared in a few music videos and small theater productions before finally getting a lead role in the 1993 sci-fi movie Cyborg 2, then in the cult favorite Hackers in 1995. She received a Golden Globe for her portrayal of supermodel Gia, in the film of the same name. She earned another Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and an Academy award for her supporting role in the movie Girl, Interrupted. Her ability as a diverse actress working on everything from an action star in the Lara Croft movies to her voice acting in Kung-Fu Panda, to thrillers such as Life or Something Like It, has made Jolie one of the most successful actresses ever.
Her personal life has been of much interest to film fans as well. She is heavily involved in humanitarian efforts in other countries. She has adopted 3 children and has 3 of her own with her husband, actor Brad Pitt. She has an on again, off again relationship with her father and has had several surgeries to avoid breast cancer, the disease which killed her mother.
Jolie announced to a shocked audience that she was filing for divorce from her husband after 2 years of marriage. The couple has been together for 12 years, but only recently took the walk down the aisle. Cause for the divorce is listed as irreconcilable differences. She is asking for full custody of their children, with only visitation rights for Pitt. Jolie has stated that Pitt has “anger problems” and that he won’t stop smoking pot in front of their children, aged 15 to 8. Friends say that Jolie also wants to leave Hollywood and moving making behind to devote herself to humanitarian issues, while Pitt it appears, still wants to make movies.
While this is her public statement, private sources say that Jolie hired a private detective to monitor Pitt. PI’s say that he was having an affair with his current co-star Marion Cotillard, age 40, while filming in London.
Jolie is one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses with average annual earnings of more than $30 million. Jolie also gets tremendous earnings from her endorsement worth more than $10 million each year for Louis Vuitton. Jolie has a current net worth of $200 million and earned a reported $15 million for her role in the 2015 film Maleficent. She and Pitt also purchased a luxury seaside estate in Turkey for $2.7 million.
