The only daughter of actor Jon Voight, she got her big break in the 1995 film Hackers. Proving she's not just famous for her daddy, she has an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. Her most commercially successful films are Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and the sorta-spy movie Mr & Mrs. Smith.
Jolie is noted for promoting humanitarian causes as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
She has fourteen known tattoos, among which the Latin proverb "quod me nutrit me destruit" (what nourishes me destroys me), the Tennessee Williams quote "A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages," and six sets of geographical coordinates indicating the origins of her children.
Why Is She A Favorite?
Angelina Jolie has been in dozens of movies, but her geek cred was raised by being a geek trifecta: She's starred in science-fiction films as well as comic book and video game adaptations. Plus, she has been cited as the world's "most beautiful" woman.
