Angelina Jolie, born on June 4, 1975, in Los Angeles, California, goes by the full name Angelina Jolie Voight. She began her acting career at the early age of 7, performing alongside her father, Jon Voight. However, it was in 1993, when she starred in Cyborg 2, that she made her first official movie debut. Just two years later, she landed her first leading role in Hackers, and by 2000, she had won her first Oscar for best supporting actress for her performance in Girl, Interrupted.
Jolie has always been recognized for her exceptional talent, magnetic personality, and stunning beauty. She is widely regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful women, not solely due to her physical appearance, but also because of her inspiring life story, compassionate heart, and her tireless efforts towards humanitarian work across the globe.
Aside from being a well-decorated actress, Angelina Jolie has also taken on significant roles off-screen. Since 2012, she has served as a Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, receiving recognition for her work in providing aid to those affected by armed conflicts worldwide. Further, in 2016, Jolie was appointed as a professor at the London School of Economics, where she teaches a master’s degree program focused on promoting gender equality and addressing issues faced by women in times of war.
Jolie has had several marriages and relationships throughout her life. Her first marriage to actor Jonny Lee Miller ended after a year, and she later married and divorced actor Billy Bob Thornton. Before meeting Brad Pitt on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jolie was in a bisexual relationship. Despite rumors that she was the cause of Pitt’s divorce from Jennifer Aniston, Jolie denied these claims. The couple announced their engagement in 2012 and got married two years later in France. However, after eleven years together, they separated due to “irreconcilable differences.”
Due to their love, the famous couple had six children. Angelina Jolie’s first child, Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt, was adopted in 2002 from Cambodia and later Brad Pitt legally gave him his last name. Jolie adopted Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt from Ethiopia in July 2005 and Pitt also gave her his last name. In 2006, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt was born via a scheduled caesarean section in Namibia, where she dressed like a boy and preferred to be called John. However, as she grew older, she began to embrace her femininity at the age of 15. A year after her birth, Jolie adopted Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt. In 2008, Jolie gave birth to twins named Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline in France.
