Happy Birthday Angelina Jolie! Here Are 10 Films You Forgot She Made
Happy Birthday Angelina Jolie!
The stunning actress and humanitarian turns 40 today. Another year may have passed, but people have not stopped talking about her movies, elegant style, and much buzzed about personal life.
This has been a very busy year for Jolie. She married long-time partner Brad Pitt on August 23, 2014, in a touching, intimate ceremony that their six children participated in. Shortly after their wedding, Jolie got back to work on directing and co-starring in By the Sea with Pitt.
In March 2015, Jolie penned an essay in the New York Times about her choice to undergo a second preventative surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes.
Jolie has won three Oscars, including Best Supporting Actress in a Supporting Role for Girl Interrupted (1999). She has also been nominated for her lead roles in A Mighty Heart, Changeling, The Tourist, and In the Land of Blood and Honey. She also starred in the popular hit movies Salt and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which was how she met future husband Pitt.
There may have been some roles you may have forgotten about in Jolie’s accomplished career, like her role in Foxfire which showed her major potential in an edgy role, despite starring in a universally disparaged film. There was also Beyond Borders, which mirrors or may have even inspired Jolie’s own humanitarian efforts.
