Angelina Jolie (born June 4, 1975), is an American actress, former model and humanitarian. She is born in Los Angeles, California. Her parents are Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand, and she has one brother, James Haven.

After their parent’s separation, they lived with their mother, who abandoned acting career in order to focus on her children. Angelina often watched movies with her mother and was the inspiration for starting of her acting.

Her first school was Beverly Hills High school, but there she was isolated and often teased because she was very thin and was wearing glasses and braces. In that period, she tried several times to start modeling career, but without success. Angelina later transferred to Moreno High School, where she becomes an outsider, always wearing black outfit and even experimenting with a knife with her boyfriend.

At the age of 16, she graduated from High School and moved into her own apartment. At the age of 19 she tried to kill herself and she was addicted to drugs. During that period, she had serious depression and planned to commit suicide. At the age of 26 she adopted her first child and found peace.

Because her mother and grandmother died of the cancer, she submitted to several tests and finding that she has an 87% risk of developing cancer, she has done preventive double mastectomy. Reason for the cancer is her bad BRCA 1 gene.

Today she lives with her husband, Brad Pitt, in Hollywood and has five children. She is known for movies: Hackers, Gia, The Bone collector, Gone in 60 seconds, A mighty heart, Alexander, Salt and many more.
