Excerpt: Angelina Jolie (born Angelina Jolie Voight; June 4, 1975)
is an American actress. She has received an Academy Award, two
Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. Jolie
promotes humanitarian causes, and is noted for her work with
refugees as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High
Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). She has been cited as one of the
world's most attractive people, as well as the world's "most
beautiful" woman, titles for which she has received substantial
media attention. Though she made her screen debut as a child
alongside her father Jon Voight in the 1982 film Lookin' to Get
Out, Jolie's acting career began in earnest a decade later with the
low-budget production Cyborg 2 (1993). Her first leading role in a
major film was in Hackers (1995). She starred in the critically
acclaimed biographical films George Wallace (1997) and Gia (1998),
and won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her
performance in the drama Girl, Interrupted (1999). Jolie achieved
wider fame after her portrayal of video game heroine Lara Croft in
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), and since then has established
herself as one of the best-known and highest-paid actresses in
Hollywood. She has had her biggest commercial successes with the
action-comedy Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) and the animated film
Kung Fu Panda (2008). Divorced from actors Jonny Lee Miller and
Billy Bob Thornton, Jolie currently lives with actor Brad Pitt, in
a relationship that has attracted worldwide media attention. Jolie
and Pitt have three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, as
