PotW: Angelina Jolie

This week’s PotW goes to our first legacy actress, Angelina Jolie. She is the estranged daughter of legendary actor Jon Voight. She began her career as a model appearing in an occasional music video such as Rock-n-roll Dreams Come Through by Meatloaf. This led to films such as Hackers where she would meet future husband and lesser Sherlock Holmes, Johnny Lee Miller.

Jolie would go on to a varied career, being featured as the title character in the Lara Croft films, using her experience as a model in the HBO original, Gia and even winning an Academy Award for Girl, Interrupted. Her exploits outside of film have brought her almost as much notoriety including marrying Billy Bob Thornton as well as Brad Pitt, with whom she adopted several children as well as having three children of their own. Her Charity work is also world renown. She will next be seen in the Maleficent sequel in a string of live action Disney remakes.
