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.

Brad Pitt is one of the most famous actors of his generation, thanks to a magical combination of commercial success, critical respect, universally acknowledged good looks, and endless tabloid coverage of his romantic relationships with fellow A-listers. Pitt is an Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner who has also become increasingly involved with humanitarian causes.
Pitt started his career in television, appearing in Another World, and in four episodes of the hit show Dallas in 1987-88. In the later, he played the character Randy, whom Pitt described as a typical high schooler (Teen Beat, Teen Beat Makes a Pitt Stop to Meet Dallas Star Brad Pitt).
By the end of the 1980s, hed added numerous other TV credits, including 21 Jump Street, Growing Pains, Head of the Class, and thirtysomething. Pitt played a lead role in the 1990 TV movie Too Young to Die, starring alongside Juliette Lewis, paving the way for an off-camera romance. For half of our relationship, we were just unknown young actors in L.A., Lewis said recently. I even remember his little bungalow that we lived in off Melrose that wed smoke lots of pot in (BlackBook, Juliette Lewis is a Natural Born Rebel).

Say the name “Tom Cruise” in a crowded room and you'll see a range of reactions. To some, he is beloved for his early roles in hit movies – like the 80s classic Risky Business, in which he played a cash-strapped teen left unsupervised by his parents. Tom's famous dance scene, in which he's scantily clad in just underwear and socks, cemented his status as a sex symbol, and he kept it alive in more recent films like Jerry Maguire and the hugely successful Mission Impossible series. Others see Tom as a kooky celebrity whose involvement in Scientology and emotional outbursts regarding his high-profile marriage to fellow actor Katie Holmes have made him the subject of tabloid mockery.
