Yes, Angelina Jolie Used To Live Here

Before the fame and fortune, take a look at Angelina Jolie’s humble Hollywood digs... and it's no Chateau Miraval.

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Long before she was a household name, Angelina Jolie's very first place was far cry from the extravagant 1,000-acre, 35-room French estate she calls home today.

During her early years as a budding thespian, the future Mrs. Brad Pitt owned a modest 688 square-foot condo in West Hollywood, Calif., and Celebuzz has the photos to prove it.

The 1-bedroom, 2-bath apartment located just south of Sunset Boulevard belonged to the 37-year-old from 1995 to 1997 when she was just a mere 20 years old and starring in her very first flicks, Hackers and Firefox.

And for all you on Team Jolie, it’s also the special place where the newlywed spent her first year as a married woman after saying “I do” to hubby No. 1 Jonny Lee Miller in 1996.

Just to show you how far this "Sexiest Actress Alive" has come, in 1995, she bought the digs for a paltry (in uber-rich standards) $115,000, while her ginormous retreat in the South of France, Chateau Miraval, is reportedly worth $70 million (below).

So let’s do the math... Jolie is soooo rich, she could actually buy her first condo 688 times to equal the price of the chateau. Now that's tres fab.

In 18 years, the Salt star is now one of the highest paid actresses on the big screen, earning $20 million in 2012 and is a full-fledged jet-setter with other homes around the world, including Los Angeles (below)...

And New Orleans' French Quarter.

But her former WeHo condo didn’t come without had a few fancy features the Oscar winner has now clearly grown quite accustomed to -- like a gym, tennis court and pool.

Let's get real, though, her old pad pales in comparison to the Miraval mansion that has... get this!... a vineyard, olive groves, lake, moat, 20 fountains, and even a forest to help ensure privacy.

Take a look at Jolie’s very first humble abode in our gallery, above.
