Angelina Jolie’s birth name was Angelina Jolie Voight. She dropped the ‘Voight’ from her name officially as an adult; she had been using her middle name in her stage name for years at that point. She changed her name to Angelina Jolie Pitt after marrying Brad Pitt. She has recently reverted to Angelina Jolie.
Angelina Jolie was born on the 4th of June, 1975. She is currently aged 44. She has regularly topped lists of hottest celebrities over the years. She is still considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and barely shows her age. She did undergo a double mastectomy recently to avoid suffering from cancer like her mother did.
Angelina Jolie is the daughter of actor Jon Voight and actress Marcheline Bertrand. She was raised by her mother for most of her life after her parents slip up in 1976 and has famously had a poor relationship with her father for most of her life. Her mother gave up her acting career to care for her and her siblings, but her father continued acting. Jolie has a brother, James Haven. She is the niece of singer-songwriter Chip Taylor and the volcanologist Barry Voight.
Jolie attended Beverly Hills High School where she felt like an outsider amongst the rich kids she went to school with who came from more affluent families, whilst Jolie’s mother earned a more modest income. She was often teased at school for being skinny. She later transferred to Moreno High School, an alternative school where she developed a ‘punk’ personality and got into wearing all black and experimenting with knife play. For a time she studied to be a funeral director. She studied theatre after graduating high school.
Angelina’s home is located in Los Feliz, LA. The home is a 2.1 acre estate and is a stunning mansion that was built in 1913. The home has six bedrooms and ten bathrooms.

Angelina Jolie was born in the United States and is American although she has famously lived a very nomadic existence and many of her children have dual citizenships in other countries due to being born overseas. She own properties all across the world and has lived in other countries for extended periods of time, now that she has split from Brad Pitt she has settled in LA to be closer to her children. Her family heritage includes German, Slovak and French Canadian ancestry.
Angelina Jolie was not raised in a religious family and for many years did not express religious beliefs but she recently said that her life was changed by an encounter with a World War II survivor, Louis Zamperini who passed away at the age of 97.

Her professional career in film first began in 1993 with a straight-to-video role in Cyborg 2. She disliked the film so much that she did not audition for another role for more than a year. She later has supporting roles in Without Evidence and Hackers. Hacker’s did not do well but became a cult hit.
Angelina Jolie’s career started to take off after she won a Golden Globe Award for her role in Geoge Wallace. Her big break came when she took on the role of supermodel Gia Carangi in Gia. The film chronicled the models life and breakdown and gained Jolie a Golden Globe Award and Emmy Award. She earned a reputation for being difficult to work with whilst working on Gia because she would stay in character. She made appearances in Hell’s Kitchen and Playing By Heart, before meeting Billy Bob Thornton on the set of Pushing Tin. She appeared in several more films before appearing on Girl, Interrupted which help Jolie achieve mainstream success.
