Angelina Jolie biography

Angelina Jolie is a beautiful woman and a beautiful soul - the perfect combination.

She was born to actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand and began her acting career at age 5 alongside her Oscar-winning father, Jon Voight, in Lookin' to Get Out (1980). 

The talented youngster enrolled in the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute at age 11 and continued Angelina Jolie's career into her teens with professional modeling and music video shoots. Already trained for the stage and screen,

Angelina followed up the Strasberg education with film studies at New York University and the Met Theatre Group in Los Angeles. She debuted on stage in Room Service during that time and was directed by her brother, James Haven, in five student movies.

She spent the next few years getting good reviews in good films of various qualities. She shone in Cyborg II: Glass Shadows (1993), Hackers (1995), Foxfire (1996), Love Is All There Is (1996), Without Evidence (1995), Mojave Moon (1996), Playing God (1997), George Wallace (TV - 1997 - for a Golden Globe win and an Emmy nomination), True Women (TV - 1997), Playing by Heart (1998 - for a National Board of Review Breakthrough Performance award), and Gia (TV - 1998 - for another Golden Globe, a Golden Satellite, a Screen Actors Guild award, and a second Emmy nomination). That year Angelina married fellow actor Jonny Lee Miller.

She added unpredictability to her growing fame with her reported wedding outfit - black rubber pants and Miller's name in blood on the coordinating white shirt. The couple divorced a year later. Jolie married Billy Bob Thornton and sports his name on her person in tattoo ink.

1999 brought Pushing Tin (1999), Hell's Kitchen (1999), The Bone Collector (1999), and Girl Interrupted (1999 - for a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors' Guild award, a ShoWest award, and the big one: an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress).

The Oscar ceremony brought further notoriety to Angelina Jolie. Critics sneered at her gothic get-up and her gushing adoration for Haven - when folks can't fault your performances, they'll get you for brotherly love.

The actor is in the films Dancing In The Dark, Gone In 60 Seconds, Tomb Raider, and Along Came A Spider.
