Career: Angelina won the Best Actress Oscar for Girl, Interrupted, the true story of a teenager’s stay in a mental hospital. But it wasn’t until she slipped into a pair of hotpants for her action hero role in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider that she found worldwide fame. Other film roles include The Changeling, A Mighty Heart and action-thriller Salt.
Relationships: Angelina is no stranger to the on-set romance. She met her first husband, Jonny Lee Miller, on the set of Hackers in 1995. They married in 1996 and divorced three years later. She met Billy Bob Thornton on the set of Pushing Tin in 1999. After a whirlwind romance they married in 2000, but divorced in 2003. Angelina met Brad Pitt on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2004. They were rumoured to be a couple when he separated from Jennifer Aniston in January 2005, but they didn’t go public until they announced she was pregnant with his daughter, Shiloh Nouvel, born in Namibia on 27th May 2006.
By then, Angelina was already mother to two adopted children: Maddox Chivan, born 5th August 2001, who she adopted from Cambodia and Zahara Marley, born 8th January 2005, who she and Brad adopted from Ethiopia. The following year the couple adopted Pax Thien, born 29th November 2003, from Vietnam. Jolie gave birth to twins, Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline, in Nice, France on 12 July 2008.
