Biography


Angelina Jolie, born Angelina Jolie Voight on June 4, 1975, in Los Angeles, California, is an American actress famous for her tattoos and her acting ability. Jolie, which in French means pretty, was born to an Academy Award-winning actor, Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand with only one brother named James Haven. Just like any other children at her age, she also had a favorite cartoon character that she liked very much, which was the flying elephant Disney character "Dumbo." She said that she cried when he was able to fly. Meanwhile, unlike her friends in general, little Jolie had had her own "different" childhood dream, which was to be a funeral director. Hence, it's not surprising that she has an interest in mortuary science and that she also has lots of "weird collections," including her many tattoos and knives collection.

Since her age of 11, Jolie attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute before then at her 14 years age started modeling. Later on she was majored in film at New York University after she graduated from Beverly Hills High School at age 16. In the year of 1999, she starred in the film "Girl, Interrupted," which was both starred and produced by Winona Ryder, as Lisa Rowe, for which she received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Besides, she has also starred in five different movies, all of which directed by her brother James Haven, with whom she's extremely close to and protective of. Their close relationship has, in many times, provoked public rumors that the two had an incest love affair (2000), but Jolie denied the issue and stated the speculation was absolutely false. That being so the show must go on.
