Who Is Angelina Jolie? Details Of Her Parents, Children and Net Worth

Angelina Jolie, often cited as the world’s most beautiful woman is an American actress and filmmaker with financial status standing at $160 million.

Her Age and Parents

Born on June 04 1975, Angelina Jolie was the youngest child of married actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand while her godparents are actors Jacqueline Bisset and Maximilian Schell. After her parents divorce in 1976, Jolie and her brother lived with their mother, whose acting ambitions seemed to have influenced Jolie’s choice of career.

In 1982, when Angelina Jolie was just seven years old, she briefly appeared in the film Lookin’ To Get Out. When she was eleven, she decided to enroll at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and continued acting by appearing in different stage productions after her mother and stepfather moved the family back to Los Angeles from New York.

When Jolie was 14, she dropped out of her acting classes and briefly aspired to become a funeral director. Jolie used to love experiments, during her initial period in the industry, she wore black clothing, dyed her hair purple, experimented with knife play, and went out moshing with her live-in boyfriend. Two years later, she decided to end the relationship and focus on her life after which she graduated from high school and returned to theater studies.

Personal Life and Career

Angelina Jolie suffered episodes of suicidal depression throughout her teens and early twenties as she found it difficult to emotionally connect with other people; as a result, she started to self-harm. She used to indulge herself in drugs; by the age of 20, she had tried “just about every drug possible”. Despite her self-esteem issues, Jolie began modeling when she was 16 and soon appeared in videos for several huge bands and musicians, including The Lemonheads It’s About Time (1993), Lenny Kravitz‘s Stand by My Woman (1991), and Meat Loaf‘s music video, Rock’N’Roll Dreams Come Through (1993).

What Is Angelina Jolie’s Net Worth?

Angelina Jolie’s wealth comes through her acting career. Also listed on the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, Angelina Jolie’s total earning is estimated to be around $160 million.

Angelina Jolie’s first lead role was in the low-budget movie Cyborg 2(1993), where she played a seductive near-human robot. Then she landed a supporting role in the independent film Without Evidence (1995) followed by Hackers (1995), which led to her romance with British actor Jonny Lee Miller, and they got married on March 28, 1996. She attended her wedding in black rubber pants and a white T-shirt, upon which she had written the groom’s name with her blood. Quite experimental indeed!

Jolie’s career took an elevation after she won a Golden Globe Award for her performance in TNT’s George Wallace (1997). The movie was very well received by critics that also added a huge balance to Angelina Jolie’s income. Jolie was also nominated for Emmy Award for her performance and she won the Screen Actors Guild Award for the same movie.

In 1998, Jolie won a Golden Globe for a second time for her critically-acclaimed portrayal of supermodel Gia Carangi in HBO’s Gia. Soon after Gia’s shoot, the couple ended their marriage and she moved to New York, where she joined the New York University to study filmmaking. She also announced she was done with acting and began taking up filmmaking and writing classes.

Encouraged by her Golden Globe Award win for George Wallace and the positive critical reception of Gia, she resumed her career and made her biggest Hollywood breakthrough in 1999, when she played a sociopathic mental patient in Girl, Interrupted. She took home her third Golden Globe and the Supporting Actress Oscar.

After her separation from Miller, Jolie reportedly dated Oscar-winning actor Timothy Hutton but their romance didn’t last for long. In 2000, Jolie married Billy Bob Thornton after co-starring with him in Pushing Tin (1999). Although highly regarded for her acting abilities, Jolie had not found films that appealed to wide audiences, but Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) made her an international superstar.

The movie was an international blockbuster and launched Jolie’s global reputation as a female action star. She reprised her role as Lara Croft in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003), which established her among Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses. Some of her other notable movies include The Bone Collector (1999), Gone in 60 Seconds (2000), Taking Lives (2004), Wanted (2008) Changeling (2008), Salt (2010), Maleficent (2014).
