Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie is an undeniable stalwart in the acting business, oft rumored to be the cinema industry’s highest paid actress. With a slew of accolades to accompany her dazzling good looks, it’s not wonder why.
The actress made her debut film appearance in 1982 alongside her father Jon Voigt, and has since earned an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and three Golden Globe awards.
Although she has starred in many highly acclaimed films since the inception of her career, she is well noted for her involvement in humanitarian efforts, for which she received a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. Additionally, she has adopted three children from foreign countries.
She grew up in Los Angeles, California, and spent her middle and high school years as a self-described outcast. To this day, she claims that she is still “at heart – and always will be – just a punk kid with tattoos.”
