She continued her action-star career with “Mr. And Mrs. Smith” (2005), “Wanted” (2008), and “Salt” (2010), and received critical acclaims for her helping performances in the dramas “A Mighty Heart” (2007) and “Changeling” (2008), which earned her nomination for an Academy Award for Best Actress. Her biggest commercial success came with the fantasy picture “Maleficent” (2014). In the 2010s, Jolie expanded her career into directing, screenwriting, and producing, with the war dramas  “In The Land of Blood and Honey” (2011), Unbroken (2014), and “First They Killed My Father” (2017).

Early Life and Career:

Born Angelina Jolie Voight in Los Angeles, California, she is the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. She is the sister of actor James Haven, and the niece of singer-songwriter Chip Taylor and geologist and volcanologist Barry Voight. Her godparents are actors Jacqueline Bisset and Maximilian Schell. On her father’s side, Jolie is of  German and Slovak descent, and on her mother’s side, she is of primarily French Canadian, Dutch, and German ancestry. Like her mother, Jolie has stated that she is part Iroquois, although her only known indigenous ancestors were 17th century Hurons.

Early Life and Career

After her parents’ separation in 1976, Jolie and her brother lived with their mother, she had abandoned her acting ambitions to focus on raising her children. Her mother raised her Catholic but did not require her to go to church. As a child, she often watched films with her mother and it was this, rather than her father’s successful career, that inspired her interest in acting. Jolie decided to act and enrolled at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, where she trained for two years and appeared in several stage productions.

Angelina Jolie’s Schools and Colleges:

Jolie first attended Beverly Hills High School, where she felt isolated among the children of some of the area’s affluent families because her mother survived on a more modest income. She was teased by other students, who targeted her for being extremely thin and wearing glasses and braces. Her early attempts at modelling, at her mother’s insistence, proved unsuccessful.

She then transferred to Moreno High School, an alternative school, where she became a “Punk Outsider”, wearing all black clothing, going out moshing, and experimenting with knife play with her live-in boyfriend. She dropped out of her acting classes and aspired to become a funeral director, taking at-home courses to study embalming. At age 16, after the relationship ended, Jolie graduated from high school and rented her own apartment, before returning to theatre studies, though in 2004 she referred to this period with the observation, “I am still at heart-and always will be- just a punk kid with tattoos,”

Angelina Jolie tried to commit suicide:

As a teenager, Jolie found it difficult to emotionally connect with other people, and as a result, she self-harmed, later commenting, “For some reason, the ritual of having cut me and feeling the pain, maybe feeling alive, feeling some kind of release, it was somehow therapeutic to me”. She also struggled with insomnia and an eating disorder, and began experimenting with drugs; by age 20, she had used “Just about every drug possible “, particularly heroin.

Jolie suffered episodes of depression and twice planned to commit suicide at age 19 and again at age 22 when she attempted to hire a hitman to kill her. When she was 24, she experienced a nervous breakdown and was admitted for 72 hours to UCLA Medical Centre’s psychiatric ward. Two years later, after adopting her first child, Jolie found stability in her life, later stating, “I knew once I committed to Maddox, I would never be self-destructive again”.

Jolie Boyfriends

Jolie’s relationships:

Jolie has had a lifelong dysfunctional relationship with her father, which began when Voight left the family when his daughter was less than a year old. She has said that from then on their time together was sporadic and usually carried out in front of the press. They reconciled when they appeared together in “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” (2001), but their relationship again deteriorated. Jolie petitioned the court to legally remove her surname “Voight” in favour of her middle name, which she had long used as a stage name; the name change was granted on September 12, 2002.

Voight then went public with their estrangement during an appearance on Access Hollywood, in which he claimed Jolie had “serious mental problems”. At that point, her mother and brother also broke off contact with Voight. They did not speak for six and a half years but began rebuilding their relationship in the wake of Bertrand’s death from ovarian cancer on January 27, 2007, before going public with their reconciliation three years later.
