Born June 4, 1975 in Los Angeles, Angelina Jolie 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
little 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.
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; shit 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.
