June 4, 1975, the raven haired, plump lipped actress was
destined to be a star. Living in Los Angeles, and the child
of two actors, there was no denying that the beauty would
grace the screen at some point in her life. Angelina, however
decided that she would be a funeral director instead. Thankfully,
After attending the Less Strasberg Theatre
Institute and New York University, Jolie appeared in the
film “Cyborg 2” in 1993. Two years later, she
was in “Hackers”. Then, in 1997, she won the
Golden Globe for the TV movie, “George Wallace”.
She also garnered the attention of critics in the film “Gia”.
Angelina won an Academy Award for “Girl,
Interrupted” in 2000. Later that same year she married
Billy Bob Thorton, her second husband. She also appeared
in “Gone in Sixty Seconds” with Nicholas Cage
and “Original Sin” with Antonio Banderas. The
following year she breathed shapely life into the video
game character, Lara Croft in “Tomb Raider”.
The sequel to that same film, “Lara Croft, Tomb Raider:
Cradle of Life” was panned mercilessly by the critics,
but fairly well received by the fans of both the video game
and Angelina Jolie.
By 2002, Jolie had changed some of her
aspirations, as well as some of her image by adopting a
Cambodian boy which led to her divorce from Thorton according
to both camps. Jolie continued working however, appearing
in “Beyond Borders” in ‘03 and three films
the following year: “Alexander” “Sky
Captain and the World of Tomorrow” and “Taking
Lives”. She also provided her sultry voice in the
animated film “Shark Tale”.
In 2005, Angelina appeared in “Mr.
and Mrs. Smith” opposite Brad Pitt, with whom she
was rumored to be having an affair with. Although both denied
the alleged involvement, their on screen chemistry could
not be denied and by the following year, they had not only
confirmed what was blatantly obvious, they had welcomed
a daughter as well.
Jolie has appeared on screen with blonde
hair, but looks best with her natural, darker hair which
sets off her creamy pale complexion and enviable facial
structure to her best advantage.
