Angelina Jolie’s Early Life and Education

Angelina Jolie Biography, Career, Net Worth, And Other Interesting Facts

Angelina Jolie was born on June 4, 1975, in Los Angeles, California. Her parents, Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand were both actors. She has a brother named James Haven and is related to singer-songwriter Chip Taylor and geologist Barry Voight. Her godparents are actors Jacqueline Bisset and Maximilian Schell.

After her parents split up in 1976, Angelina and her brother lived with their mom. She was raised Catholic but didn’t have to go to church. Angelina got interested in acting by watching movies with her mom, not because of her dad’s fame. She had a small role in one of her dad’s films when she was seven.

When Angelina was six, her family moved to New York and then back to Los Angeles five years later. She decided to pursue acting and went to the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute for two years.

Angelina had a tough time in high school. She felt out of place among wealthy students and was teased for being thin, wearing glasses, and having braces. She tried modeling but didn’t succeed. She then went to an alternative school where she dressed differently and got involved in risky behavior. She dropped out of acting classes and wanted to become a funeral director.

As a teenager, Angelina Jolie struggled emotionally. She self-harmed and had trouble sleeping. She also had an eating disorder and started using drugs, including heroin. She even tried to hire someone to kill her. At 24, she had a breakdown and spent time in a psychiatric ward. Adopting her first child helped her find stability.

Angelina’s relationship with her father has always been difficult. He left the family when she was a baby and they rarely spent time together. They reconciled briefly during a movie they did together but later fell out again. Angelina legally changed her name to distance herself from him. They didn’t speak for years until they reconciled after her mother’s death.

Angelina Jolie’s first big movie role was in a science fiction film called Cyborg 2. She played a robot designed for sneaky missions. But she didn’t like the movie and took a break from auditioning for a while.

After a break from acting, Jolie starred in Maleficent in 2014, a new version of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. While opinions on the movie were mixed, many praised Jolie’s performance as the lead character.

Then, in the same year, Angelina Jolie directed Unbroken, a movie about the incredible true story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic athlete and World War II soldier who survived a plane crash and imprisonment by the Japanese. Though the movie didn’t get as much award recognition as expected, it did well financially.

Jolie’s next directing project was By the Sea in 2015, where she starred alongside her husband, Brad Pitt. Critics weren’t impressed calling it a vanity project with little emotional depth. Despite having two big-name actors it didn’t get a wide release.

Jolie’s focus shifted more towards humanitarian work, so she didn’t make many movies. First They Killed My Father, released in 2017, was another directorial project for her. It’s a drama set during the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia based on the memoirs of Loung Ung who worked with Jolie on the screenplay.

Humanitarian work

UNHCR ambassadorship

Angelina Jolie Biography, Career, Net Worth, And Other Interesting Facts

Angelina Jolie saw how bad things were in Cambodia when she was filming a movie there. This made her want to help people in tough situations. So, she started working with the United Nations to learn more and help out.

She visited places with big problems, like Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Pakistan, where she met Afghan refugees. She gave a lot of money to help them, more than anyone else had ever given before. She lived and worked just like the UN staff did when she visited these places.

Because she cared so much, the United Nations made her a Goodwill Ambassador. Over the next ten years, she went to over 40 places where people were struggling, meeting refugees in over 30 countries.

Jolie wanted to help in places that didn’t get much attention from the media. She went to dangerous places like Darfur, Sudan, and Kabul, Afghanistan, even when it was risky. She learned to fly planes so she could help deliver aid to these places.

After many years of helping, she was given an even bigger job as a Special Envoy. This meant she could represent the United Nations in diplomatic talks about refugee issues. She went on more trips to meet refugees and talk about their needs.

In 2022, she stepped down from this role, but she promised to keep working to help refugees.

Conservation and community development

Angelina Jolie wanted to help her son connect with his Cambodian roots, so she bought a traditional house there in 2003. It was in a big area of land in Battambang, near a national park where poachers were harming endangered animals. She bought the park and made it into a safe place for animals, naming it after her son, Maddox. Because of her efforts, the King of Cambodia gave her citizenship in 2005.

Later, in 2006, she made the project even bigger, now called the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation (MJP). She teamed up with an economist named Jeffrey Sachs to make Asia’s first Millennium Village. They were inspired by a trip they took to Kenya, where they saw how villages could be helped. By 2007, over 6,000 people and 72 workers, some of whom used to be poachers, were living and working in the project. They built schools, roads, and even a factory making soy milk, all thanks to Jolie’s funding.

Angelina Jolie also got involved with wildlife conservation in Namibia. After filming a movie there in 2003, she started supporting a place called the Harnas Wildlife Foundation, which helps orphaned animals. Later, in 2010, she and her partner Brad Pitt started another foundation named after their daughter Shiloh. This one helped a wildlife sanctuary in Namibia by funding projects and supporting the local community.

Overall, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been involved in many charitable projects, including conservation work and supporting communities in need, through the foundation they started in 2006.

Jolie cares a lot about kids getting an education, especially in places affected by war and conflict. She helped start something called the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict in 2007. This group helps fund education programs for kids in places like Iraq, Darfur, and Afghanistan. They work with big organizations like the United Nations and the World Bank to make sure kids in tough situations can still go to school.

Since 2013, all the money made from Jolie’s fancy jewelry collection, Style of Jolie, goes to help the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.

Jolie also started the Malala Fund in 2013 with Malala Yousafzai. This fund gives money to help girls go to school in places where it’s hard for them to get an education. Jolie gave over $200,000 of her own money to start it.

Personal life

Relationships and marriages

Angelina Jolie Biography, Career, Net Worth, And Other Interesting Facts

Angelina Jolie had a serious boyfriend when she was just 14 years old. Her mom allowed them to live together at home, which Jolie appreciated because it meant she could focus on school and explore her first serious relationship in a safe environment.

When she was filming Hackers in 1995, she fell for actor Jonny Lee Miller. After a break, they got married in 1996. Their relationship ended a year later, but they remained friends.

Before Miller, she was involved with Jenny Shimizu, a model and actress she met on the set of Foxfire. Jolie said she would have married Shimizu if she hadn’t married Miller. Their relationship lasted several years, even while Jolie was with other people.

Jolie married actor Billy Bob Thornton in 2000 after a short courtship. Their marriage was known for their public displays of affection, like wearing vials of each other’s blood. They adopted a child from Cambodia but separated after three months and divorced in 2003.

Jolie faced scandal when she was accused of causing Brad Pitt’s divorce from Jennifer Aniston in 2005. She denied any affair, saying she wouldn’t be with a married man due to her father’s infidelity.

Jolie and Pitt, dubbed “Brangelina,” had a high-profile relationship for 12 years. They had six children, three adopted. After marrying in 2014, they separated in 2016 and finalized their divorce in 2019.

The divorce turned contentious with allegations of abuse from both sides, including claims from Jolie that Pitt mistreated her and their children on a plane in 2016.


On March 10, 2002, Angelina Jolie adopted her first child, seven-month-old Maddox Chivan, from Cambodia. She had visited Cambodia a couple of times while working on a movie and a humanitarian mission. In November 2001, her then-husband Billy Bob Thornton, decided to adopt Maddox. However, the adoption process was paused when the US government stopped adoptions from Cambodia due to concerns about child trafficking.

Despite some legal issues with the adoption facilitator, Jolie’s adoption of Maddox was considered legal. After finalizing the process, she brought Maddox to Namibia, where she was filming another movie. Jolie and Thornton announced the adoption together, but she adopted Maddox on her own after they separated.

Her second adoption was of six-month-old Zahara Marley from Ethiopia on July 6, 2005. Initially, Angelina Jolie thought Zahara was an AIDS orphan based on information from her grandmother, but Zahara’s birth mother later came forward in the media. Jolie was with Brad Pitt when they adopted Zahara, and they later legally changed her last name to Jolie-Pitt along with Maddox. They decided to adopt from Ethiopia together after visiting the country. Pitt also adopted Maddox and Zahara.

Angelina Jolie Biography, Career, Net Worth, And Other Interesting Facts

To avoid intense media attention, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt went to Namibia for the birth of their first biological child, Shiloh Nouvel, born on May 27, 2006. They sold the first pictures of Shiloh through Getty Images and donated the proceeds to charity.

On March 15, 2007, Jolie adopted her fourth child, three-year-old Pax Thien, from Vietnam. She applied for adoption as a single parent since Vietnam’s rules don’t allow unmarried couples to adopt together. She later petitioned to change Pax Thien’s last name to Jolie-Pitt. Pitt adopted Pax in 2008.

At the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, Jolie announced she was expecting twins. She gave birth to twins Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline on July 12, 2008. The first pictures of the twins were sold for a large sum, and the proceeds went to charity through the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

Cancer prevention treatment

Back in February 2013, when Angelina Jolie was 37, she made a big decision. She found out she had a gene called BRCA1 that put her at a very high risk of getting breast cancer—87% chance, to be exact. So, she chose to have both her breasts removed to lower that risk. Her family history was a big factor: her mom had breast cancer and ovarian cancer, and her grandma had ovarian cancer too. Plus, her aunt had the same gene issue and died of breast cancer not long after Angelina’s surgery.

After her mastectomy, Angelina had surgery to rebuild her breasts using implants and tissue from a donor. Then, in March 2015, she had another surgery to remove one of her ovaries and fallopian tubes because of a high risk of ovarian cancer from the same gene. This surgery caused her to go through menopause earlier than usual, even with hormone therapy.

Angelina Jolie didn’t keep all this private. She wrote about it in articles for The New York Times to help other women facing similar decisions. She wanted them to know they had options and that they weren’t alone. She said having these surgeries didn’t make her feel any less like a woman—it made her feel strong and in control.

Her story got a lot of attention and got people talking about genetic testing for BRCA mutations. Many people praised her bravery, and health experts were glad she was spreading awareness. It even led to more people getting tested for the gene mutation all around the world. Angelina’s message reached those who needed it most, and she pushed for making these tests more affordable and accessible, which became more possible after a legal ruling in 2013.


Public image

Angelina Jolie Biography, Career, Net Worth, And Other Interesting Facts

As Jon Voight’s daughter, Angelina Jolie was always in the spotlight, starting her career early. She was known for her rebellious behavior, which helped her become famous in the late 90s and early 2000s. The media often talked about her interest in dark things like blood and knives, her past drug use, and her unconventional relationships, including being bisexual and into sadomasochism.

In 2000, she defended her outspokenness, saying artists should be real and not perfect. She also faced rumors, like one about incest when she kissed her brother after winning an Oscar. She said it was blown out of proportion and explained they were just close because their parents were divorced.

Things started changing for Jolie when she became a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency at 26. She said it gave her purpose and helped her mature. Her public image improved a lot because of her activism, and more people knew and liked her.

Even when she faced controversies, like being blamed for Brad Pitt’s divorce, she managed to keep her popularity high. She was admired worldwide and became a favorite for brands to endorse. She also made history with lucrative deals in the fashion industry.

Angelina Jolie was not just a famous actress; she was a powerful influencer, recognized by Time and Forbes as one of the most influential and highest-paid celebrities in Hollywood.


Angelina Jolie is famous for being seen as incredibly beautiful and sexy. Many magazines like Vogue, People, and Vanity Fair have called her the most beautiful woman in the world, while others like Esquire, FHM, and Empire have called her the sexiest woman alive. People seem to agree with these titles, often voting for her in polls. She’s known for her tattoos, eyes, and especially her full lips, which are as iconic as Kirk Douglas’ chin or Bette Davis’ eyes, according to The New York Times.

She has around 20 tattoos, including one with a Latin saying, a quote from Tennessee Williams, four Buddhist prayers, a tiger, and the coordinates of where she met her adopted children. She’s gotten rid of or changed some of her tattoos over time, like the one with her second husband’s name.

In her career, being seen as sexy has helped and hurt her. Some of her biggest movies, like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Beowulf, have relied on her sex appeal. Critics have said that because she’s seen as so sexy, she’s often only cast in certain kinds of roles, which limits her. Even Clint Eastwood, who directed her in a movie that got her nominated for an Oscar, said that her being so beautiful sometimes makes it hard for people to take her seriously in serious roles.

Angelina Jolie’s looks have had a big impact on popular culture. Back in 2002, people noticed that lots of women, no matter their sexual orientation, were really into her. She’s also influenced how lots of women in the Western world think about beauty and even led to more people getting cosmetic surgery to look like her. In 2013, a writer for Time said that Jolie has been seen as the perfect example of what a woman should look like for a long time, and when she talked openly about having surgery to prevent breast cancer, it changed how people think about beauty.

People also look up to Jolie for her fashion sense. She’s been showing up on red carpets since she was a kid and has been connected with the fashion brand Versace since the 1990s. Her style used to be more gothic and edgy, but as she got older and started doing more directing and charity work, she started dressing more elegantly, often in a way that reminded people of old Hollywood glamour. People still talk about the dress she wore to the 76th Academy Awards, and in the 2020s, she started wearing more sustainable fashion.
