Angelina Jolie


Angelina Jolie is regarded as one of the most beautiful and generous women in Hollywood. But Jolie was far from the 'Sex Symbol of the Thinking Man' in her younger days. Born to Actor Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand on June 4, 1975, her real name is Jolie Voight. Jolie was born in Los Angeles, California and is currently one of the most acclaimed actors in Hollywood, a famous personality and a Goodwill ambassador.

Jolie went through the trauma of her parents divorce in 1976, just a year after she was born. Marcheline, her mother bought up Jolie and her brother in Palisades, New York. According to Jolie, she has always been inspired by her mother and at the age of 11, the family moved back to Los Angeles. Here, Jolie enrolled in the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and trained for two years and simultaneously appeared in various stage productions.

Jolie had to go through an isolated childhood in school (Beverly Hills High School) and had to settle with wearing second-hand clothes. She suffered from low self-esteem as other students, constantly mocked at her due to her thin body frame, spectacles and braces.

Ladder to Fame
Jolie started modeling at the age 14 and was signed up by Finesse Model Management for modeling assignments in US and Europe. She featured in many music videos like "Rock'n'Roll Dreams Come Through" by Meat Loaf, "Alta Marea" by Antonello Venditti and "Stand by My Woman" by Lenny Kravitz . Jolie returned to theatre after this, at age 16 and she appeared as a German dominatrix in her very first theatrical performance.

The low budget 'Cyborg 2' (1993) was Jolie's first Hollywood movie. She went on to play a leading role, her first in 'Hackers' (1995). Soon, she landed roles in two critically acclaimed films, 'George Wallace' (1997) and 'Gia' (1998). In 'Gia,' Jolie played the real life role of Gia Carangi. The film revolved around the world of drugs, sex, and emotional drama. There was more to come. In 1999, Jolie won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 'Girl, Interrupted' (1999). Soon after, Jolie played a cameo role in 'Gone in 60 Seconds' opposite Nicholas Cage. But the biggest of them all is her portrayal of Lara Croft, of the video game fame. The first of the series was 'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider' (2001), and this catapulted her career to great height, overnight. The movie made $275 million worldwide.

Jolie came back as Lara Croft in 2003 for 'Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.' The sequel earned $156 million worldwide. 2004 saw Jolie alongside Ethan Hawke in a thriller called 'Taking Lives' where she played the role of a FBI Profiler. Jolie was suddenly the buzzword in Hollywood. She went from being an FBI profiler to playing the role of Olympias in 'Alexander.'

Her biggest commercial success till date came in 2005 with 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' opposite Brad Pitt. The movie earned a whopping $478 million worldwide. Right now she is touring Asia with Brad Pitt for shooting of the film 'A Mighty Heart.' This film is based on the life of Daniel Pearl, who was a Wall Street Journal reporter and was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan.

Angelina makes me want to vomit! This moraless home wrecker has now claimed another victim, Johnny Depp! It's not enough to sleep with her mother's boyfriend, brother and other women's husbands but not proclaiming to be "Mother Theresa" she still cannot set a better example even for the sake of her children! You can't pay me to see this slut in another movie or anything else! Brad got what he deserves . . . if they'll do it with you they'll do it to you! Brad is an idiot!

Watching your 60 minutes interview, I completely changed my opinion of you. I previously thought of you as just another Hollywood bombshell, but you really care about so many other things. The Bosnia story needs to be told. You are impressive to tackle such a subject.

There is another story of oppression that has never been told.
The genocide of the Armenians at the hands of the Turks, starting in the 1890's and ending near the start of World War I. To this day, the Turkish government denies anything happened. Thousands and thousands slaughtered, in very violent ways, too violent to describe here. I am not Armenian, but I have friends who are, that describe how their Grandparents were killed and other men, women and children murdered, including unborn children.

If you want to do another Bosnia type movie, you should check it out.

Best wishes,

Your friend,

David A Willard

I think that you should have left Brad alone. If he and Jennifer had already broken up, that would be another story, but you shouldn't have gotten involved with him while he was still with his wife. I think both of you treated Jennifer badly by not having Brad officially end things with Jennifer before starting his relationship with you.

To the parents of Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne,
My wife and I are retired teachers. I taught elementary school for more than 35 years, and she taught in a Montessori pre-school for eighteen. Believe it or not, we still enjoy working with children. We are the parents of three grown children and have two gandkids. We are both big fans of both of you. We love to travel. Would really be interested in being of service in the capacity of tutors/nannys. Please contact me if interested. Thanks.

Little Shilo is dressing like a boy because she identifies with her father which is great according to the animus animi theory. If there are marital problems, little girls naturally sympathize with the father. She Little Shilo is such a magnificent child. I read something today that disturbed me. Sweet shilo likes to dress like a boy. According to the animus animi theory, this means that she is identifying with her father....which is the best thing she can do. He needs to learn to treat her like the delicate little flower she is, and the media should leave her alone. This baby is learning her place in this world, and it is NOT our place to tell her! If there are marital problems, let it be known, that little girls naturally are more compassionate toward the father. She resembles him a lot, and she may be acting as the father to gain the mothers attention. Please. I read something today. That baby should never be treated like there is anything wrong with her. She is so beautiful and perfectly normal. No, I am not a fan. I just felt compelled to deliver this MSG. (fan in the sense that I look at you as anything more than someone whom I admire). I have 4 babies of my own and shilo is just a darling little baby. Just like my own.

You are a fine example of a person under intense media scrutiny successfully rising above the petty jealousies of your detractors to do noble and important work. I can't imagine what it must be like to have your personal life judged and sold for a cheap buck. That you are able to focus maturely on important goals and develop as an extraordinarily decent human being is a strong example to many. Wishing you the very best of luck in all that you do. Your children will grow up proud to know that you are not afraid to face all that is wonderful and terrible in this world. I am sure that your partner, friends and family feel priviledged to stand by your side and support you.

Is there a reason you have chosen to do a very large percentage of your charity work OUTSIDE your own country? What about doing goodwill and charity work here in your own backyard in the USA?

FYI ~ I ask this same question to Oprah and Madonna as well. And any other celebrity who seems to make a name for themself doing goodwill and charity "abroad" yet they were born right here in the US of A.

I second alice dales suggestion of heading up a push to quality orphanages under your direction. I am very concened about children with disabilities in Haiti. I would like those children part of the safe travel to US for waiting families. Over 200 families are approved and waiting for placement of children with Down syndrome, all cleared loving families. Seems a no brainer to shift the care of those children here to families who are ready and willing to take on the responsibility.
Thank you, Mary

Posted by Mary (2010-02-10) 2241

Hi angelina
Would you please consider opening orphanages around the world - I know how much you love children and how much you would like to see all children have a better life. Why save one child when you can save so many at one time and visit them all via webcam etc please think about Angel - it's certainly would be better all round and you and Brad won't fight any more - you are so well suited - I love you both - you both have the dis-advantaged at heart so think about Angelina please thanks

Dear friends,

Ladies and gentlemen you've never heard of me until today,

Writing this letter desperate to talk to you about my America, so much suffering and so beautiful

I'll tell you how it seems to be an enchanted place a kind of heaven.

My Latin America is more beautiful than the pictures of Botero.

More sometimes is as sad as the paintings of Frida

It is as intense as the tango

It's as happy as Brazil,

My Latin America has everything has sea
It has rivers,
There are waterfalls,
It has desert and technology,
There are people happy, people have suffered,
They are communists and capitalists
My beautiful America has Indians of all ethnic groups,
It gypsies, blacks and whites,
It has history, this has been through,
And an uncertain future
It has natural resources,
My America is a poor little rich girl,
My Latin America every day is violated its natural resources comes every day fading into a terrible capacity very fast!

After this confession I think I can perhaps naively call you friends,

More is how we behave in Latin, or rather, most of us like that.

More like not everything is perfect ,....

You know friends I am Brazilian

The Brazil and Latin America has it all I said is a country that looks more like a continent

Why is it you see all races and everything all mixed together, everyone has the blood of Indians,

Many like me have European blood, with African and a fantastic mix of people and religions are many and each day appears once for composing the beauty and diversity of my country,

In my country every day comes a new alien, foreign or new they are welcome ...

My country is not as violent as it seems he is more comfortable than you think,

He is so cozy that has a beautiful forest say it is full of enchanted beings who have not even been, discovered more we know that there are

You people who live alone as more than 509 years why our forest is enchanted.

And more than that say that our rainforest is the lungs of the world and be part of our being deserves love and respect

I will ask you friends, and perhaps even for those who do not want to be none, to help us make our Amazon and our people free of any destruction

Caused by foreigners and even ashamed mind of timber, rice,

and all these people here, the son of our land blood of our people, young children of the forest that deplete it,

Destroy our beloved homeland, Brazil!

With love and affection faith that our voice will be heard Denise Gramelick.
