Angelina Jolie Bio – Smartasses Magazine – Angelina Jolie Voight (born June 4, 1975) is an American actress, filmmaker, and humanitarian. Jolie is the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand, as well as the sister of actor James Haven and niece of singer-songwriter Chip Taylor. Her godparents are actors Jacqueline Bisset and Maximilian Schell. Jolie is of French-Canadian, Dutch, Iroquois, German and Slovak descent. When she was six years old, Bertrand and her live-in partner, filmmaker Bill Day, moved the family to Palisades, New York, and returned to Los Angeles five years later. Jolie trained for two years at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, where she appeared in several stage productions. Divorced from actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, she has been married to actor Brad Pitt since 2014. They have six children together, three of whom were adopted internationally.
Finding it difficult to emotionally connect with other people, Jolie first attended Beverly Hills High School, then transferred to Moreno High School, an alternative school, where she became a punk outsider, wearing all-black clothing, moshing, and experimenting with knife play. At age 16, she graduated from high school, rented her own apartment, and committed to acting professionally, though she initially found it difficult to pass auditions, often being told that her demeanor was too dark. Though technically, Jolie made her screen debut at age five, alongside her father, in 1982’s Lookin’ to Get Out, her true film career began a decade later with the 1993 low-budget production Cyborg 2, followed in 1995 by her first leading role in a major film, Hackers. In 1997, she starred in the critically acclaimed biographical television film George Wallace, and her first breakthrough came in 1998 when she portrayed supermodel Gia Carangi in HBO’s Gia. In 1999, Jolie won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the drama Girl, Interrupted. Her first starring role came in 2001, as the video game heroine Lara Croft in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, which launched her into prominence as a lead actress. Jolie continued her successful action-star career with Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Wanted, and Salt. Beginning in the 2010s, she expanded her career into directing, screenwriting, and her biggest commercial success came with the fantasy picture Maleficent in 2014.
Jolie’s early attempts at modeling, at her mother’s insistence, proved unsuccessful. In addition to her film career, she is noted for her humanitarian efforts, for which she has received a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and an honorary dame hood of the Order of St Michael and St George, among other honors. Jolie promotes various causes, including conservation, education, and women’s rights, and is most noted for her advocacy on behalf of refugees as a Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. As a public figure, Jolie has been cited as one of the most influential and powerful people in the American entertainment industry, as well as the world’s most beautiful woman, by various media outlets.
Why we think she’s hot:
If you saw Angelina Jolie very early in her career, in the silly, sci-fi movie Cyborg, you probably said to yourself, “Wow!” But when you saw her about a year or two after Tomb Raider, when her looks should have been on the decline? That’s curiously when everyone on earth decided to begin declaring her the undisputed Sexiest Woman Alive. Including us, our inaugural year. What does it all mean? It means, gentle reader, that Miss Angelina is perhaps the queen of those not-very-oftens, who actually grows more beautiful with each year of maturity that she notches. In hindsight, we still, honestly cannot think of anyone else who could have been more deserving of garnering the top prize in our first year of bringing you Top 100’s. In fact, many respectable schools of thought list Angelina Jolie as quite possibly the sexiest woman to ever live. When you consider the total package, especially style, attitude, charitability, trend-setting, if we here at Smartasses ever have a Hall of Fame, there’s no doubt Angelina will be the first to earn accolade there as well.
