Angelina Jolie's Early Life

Angelina 1

Actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand welcomed Angelina Jolie Voight into the world on June 4, 1975, in Los Angeles, California. She is also the niece of geologist and volcanologist Barry Voight, singer-songwriter Chip Taylor, and actor James Haven. Maximilian Schell and Jacqueline Bisset, both actors, are her godparents. While her mother was of French-Canadian ancestry, Jolie’s father is of German and Slovak descent. Jolie has stated that she is partially Native American. Actor Jon Voight, the father of Jolie, attended the 60th Academy Awards with his kids in 1988.

Angelina and her brother moved in with their mother after her parents divorced in 1976; the mother had given up acting to concentrate on raising her children. Despite not forcing Jolie to attend church, her mother raised her as a Catholic. Though she had a small role in Voight’s Lookin’ to Get Out at age seven, it was her mother’s frequent movie watching with her that sparked her interest in acting rather than her father’s successful career. After relocating the family to Palisades, New York, when Jolie was six years old, Bertrand and her live-in partner, director Bill Day, made their way back to Los Angeles. (3)

Angelina Jolie's Education

Because her mother made less money than some of the wealthy families in the neighborhood, Jolie initially attended Beverly Hills High School, where she felt alone among them. Other students made fun of her because she was skinny and wore glasses and braces. Her early modeling endeavors, which her mother insisted she pursue, were unsuccessful. She later changed schools to Moreno High School, an alternative institution. She adopted the persona of a “punk outsider” by dressing entirely in black, attending moshing events, and engaging in knife play with her live-in boyfriend.

Angelina Jolie's Husband and Family Life

From 14, Jolie had a committed boyfriend for two years. She has compared the relationship to a marriage in terms of emotional intensity and stated that the breakup forced her to focus on her acting career at 16. Her mother permitted them to live together in her home. Jolie fell in love with actor Jonny Lee Miller while Hackers was filmed; he was her first lover since she was in her early teens. After the production ended, they lost contact for several months before reestablishing a connection and getting married in March 1996. She wore a white T-shirt with the groom’s name in her blood and black rubber pants to her wedding. Although the relationship ended the following year, Jolie continued to be friendly. However, Jolie filed for divorce in February 1999, and it was officially granted just before she got married the following year again.

Angelina Jolie's Career

Angelina 3

Jolie started her professional acting career in 1993 when she portrayed a nearly human-robot created for corporate espionage and assassination in the science-fiction sequel Cyborg 2. She did not try out again for a role for a year because she was so disappointed with the movie. She had a supporting part in the independent film Without Evidence before starring in Hackers, her debut Hollywood production. Hackers failed to turn a profit at the box office but gained a cult following after being released on video. The New York Times critic Janet Maslin stated that Angelina’s character Kate.

In many of her early films, Jolie preferred to remain in character between scenes, adhering to Lee Strasberg’s method of acting. As a result, she had developed a reputation for being difficult to work with. She moved to New York after divorcing Miller and enrolled in night classes at New York University to study directing and screenwriting. Jolie resumed her career after receiving encouragement from her Golden Globe Award for George Wallace and the favorable reviews of Gia.

Maleficent, a live-action adaptation of Sleeping Beauty from the 1959 Disney animated feature, starred Jolie. The reviews were mixed, but The Hollywood Reporter Sherri Linden singled out Jolie for praise for her work in the lead role, calling her the “heart and soul” of the picture. Maleficent’s opening weekend box office results showed Jolie’s appeal to audiences of all demographics in action and fantasy movies, typically dominated by male actors. Maleficent earned nearly $70 million in North America and over $100 million in other markets. The film eventually made $757.8 million globally, ranking as the fourth-highest-grossing movie of the year and becoming Angelina Jolie’s highest-grossing movie ever.

After that, Jolie finished her second film project, Unbroken, about Olympic track star and World War II hero Louis Zamperini, who survived a plane crash over the ocean and spent two years in a Japanese POW camp. Under her Jolie Pas imprint, she also worked as a producer. The Coen brothers wrote the screenplay for the Unbroken movie, which starred Jack O’Connell and was based on the biography of the same name by Laura Hillenbrand. Unbroken was initially given a favorable response and was anticipated to compete for Best Picture and Best Director. Still, it ultimately received mixed reviews and little award recognition, despite being named one of the year’s top films by the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute. (4)
