Synopsis

Angelina Jolie by Dennis Abrams

As a child, Angelina Jolie was teased about her unusual looks, and while making her way in the acting world, she was often overshadowed by her Academy Award-winning father, Jon Voight. But Jolie soon came into her own. Hailed as one of Hollywood's greatest beauties, she won an Academy Award of her own, along with a reputation for being an actress of uncommon commitment and bravery. A one-time bad girl, Jolie is one of the world's best-known humanitarians, traveling the globe as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations and bringing comfort to refugees in many troubled regions. The daughter of a broken home, she grew up to create her own version of a modern family, complete with adopted and biological children and a man whom she loves but feels no need to marry. Read more about her unique life in Angelina Jolie.
