Angelina Jolie was born in Los Angeles, California on June 4, 1975. She began acting as at the age of 7, but didn't become widely famous until the release of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider in 2001. She has won many awards both for her acting as well as for her humanitarian work.
She became aware of humanitarian crises around the world while filming Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and started working with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to find long-term solutions for refugees displaced by large-scale crises, like the Afghanistan wars in 2008 and 2011, and the Libyan revolution in 2011. Jolie has been a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNHCR and was promoted to Special Envoy of High Commissioner António Guterres this past April.
Jolie has openly discussed her bisexuality in the media and has had relationships with both men and women. She is currently married to Brad Pitt and has six children, three of whom have been adopted from other countries.
