Angelina Jolie was born in June 4, 1975 and is an Academy Award-winning actress, a former fashion model, and a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency. Often cited as one of the world's most beautiful women she is both adored and envied; either way she is constantly in the media spotlight no less for her tumultuous personal life then her on-screen performances. Winner of three Golden Globes, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, Angelina has come along way since her first low budget production Cyborg 2 in 1993. She went on to appear in the critically acclaimed biopics George Wallace and Gia and won an Oscar for her performance in the 1999 drama "Girl, Interrupted". But Angelina's most famous role unquestionably was her portrait of videogame heroine Lara Croft with which she established herself as one of the best known and highest paid actresses in Hollywood. Angelina has been married twice - to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton - and she currently lives with fellow actor Brad Pitt, a relationship that sparked a worldwide media frenzy. Jolie and Pitt have two adopted children, Maddox and Zahara, and a biological child, Shiloh. With three films scheduled for release in 2007 and two more confirmed for 2008 Angelina's successful career shows no signs of wavering, although with reports that her relationship with Brad is on the rocks and inconsistencies concerning their intention to adopt more children there is a lot below the cool exterior of this global superstar.
