ABOUT THE BOOK

Angelina Jolie is an American film actress and activist. Daughter of actor Jon Voight, she is almost as well-known her for personal life as she is for her film career and humanitarian work. She has three children with fellow actor Brad Pitt, including a set of twins. The Jolie-Pitt union resulted in one of the most talked-about celebrity scandals of the last 20 years, as Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston when he met Jolie. Though Jolie, Pitt and Aniston all deny that Jolie and Pitt had an affair while Pitt was still married to Aniston, the love triangle continues to appear in tabloid headlines. Jolie has frequently been listed as one of the worlds most beautiful women.

In the early days of her acting career, Jolie was thought of as a wild child who frequently made shocking admissions and appearances, such as her fondness for collecting knives. Jolie is best known for her Oscar-winning turn as a mental patient in Girl, Interrupted, as well as her role in the successful Lara Croft: Tomb Raider series, based on the video game of the same name. She has won numerous Golden Globes throughout her career and was been nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her work in the 2008 Clint Eastwood film, Changeling.

This resulted in issues with both depression and cutting herself. She entered into a sexual relationship with her boyfriend at the age of fourteen, and even had her boyfriend move into her house with her and her mother and brother.

Even though Jolie did not receive much encouragement from Voight, she grew up with a sense of determination and ambition that would eventually make her one of the biggest stars in the world. The actress attended the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute when she was eleven years old and performed in numerous stage productions during her two-year stint at the institution. She attended Beverly Hills High School as a teen and also began modeling during this time, which led to roles in music videos, made-for-television movies and eventually starring roles in feature films...
