Angelina Jolie




BIOGRAPHY


Born June 4, 1975 in Los Angeles, Angelina Jolie Voight (yes, Jolie is her middle name, which she used so she didn't have to bear the burden of her father's name, Jon Voight) has become one of the 'in' women in Hollywood. Daring to be different, perhaps to the point of being bizarre, Jolie (incidently meaning"pretty le girl" in French) has starred in many big budget films of late and has catapulted herself from model daughter of a famous acting pair to a top billed actress in her own right. There are many press accounts though of her having a distant relationship with her father, the New York Post's Jennifer Tung reports in an interview with Jolie, mentioning her father's name caused the normally outspoken actress to fall silent, lose eye contact, and become distant. She does praise her mother Marcheline Bertrand and brother James Haven Voight, in fact acting in five films at the USC School of Cinema, of which her brother directed. Her first notable film was the internet ground breaker film Hackers in 1995. Angelina had her most memorable role perhaps in the film Gia, which profiled the life of the bisexual and heroin addict Gia Carangi, who also died from AIDS. At the time, it has been said that Jolie who tends to absorb herself in her roles, may have gotten too much into this one according to worried friends. Her breakout year though for big budget films occurred in 1999, with roles in Girl, Interrupted (released nationally in 2000) in which she co-starred with Winona Ryder, and The Bone Collector, which also featured Denzel Washington. Her latest release is Gone in 60 Seconds, in which it is rumored Angelina was caught nude in the sack with co-star, and married, Nicolas Cage. Just after will be Dancing in the Dark, which is said to contain graphic nudity which Jolie insists "I'm going to fight for them not to cut any of it." The sex life of Jolie also may be considered bizarre. Besides her admitted affection towards death and the macabre, Jolie sports several scars from playing with knives (including an X on her arm, a slice on her stomach and a nick on her neck), or as she puts it "You're young, you're drunk, you're in bed, you have knives; s--- happens." She also has spoken of using knifes in sexual play. Its unknown whether that played a factor in the recent 1999 divorce of Jonny Lee Miller whom she married in 1995. Although doubtful as the marriage started out in the same fashion, with Jolie's wedding garb being a white shirt with her husbands name painted across the back... in her own blood! Jolie also has admitted several times to being bisexual, although besides Miller, she's been romantically linked to Timothy Hutton, whom she dated for about a year. Angelina's most recent hook up ended up in marriage. The lucky man is Billy Bob Thornton, whom she met on the set of Pushing Tin. The two married in a small Las Vegas wedding. It was reported that Angelina checked herself into UCLA for psychological examination only four days prior to the wedding. There have been many reports that the marriage is doomed, noting that this is Billy Bob's fifth attempt at marital happiness. Left behind in this relationship was Laura Dern, who had thought she was going to marry Billy Bob. Dern's mother told the Enquirer "Billy Bob Thorton is a real Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I'm shocked. Billy Bob told me he wants my daughter to be his wife and I know they've talked about having kids. I don't know how to make sense out of it." Nevertheless, Angelina claims it is true love, saying Billy Bob is the love of her life. She's also told friends that he is "the biggest in Hollywood" which is especially important since Angelina has said "I love sex! I never get enough, I need it more than anyone I know." Jolie sports many tattoos, one of which was an H on the inside of her wrist. That and perhaps many other tattoos are ones Angelina is rumored to want to have removed, though she did it again when she got a 'Billy Bob' tattoo just before marrying the actor.
