American actor. At one time, Angelina Jolie was simply known as “Anika”. Then, American film industry insiders noticed her for the first time when the film version of Tomb Raider became an instant hit. She has gone on to star in several more popular films, including Confessions of an Unwed Mother, World War I, and Now We Are Six. Angelina Jolie, presently aged sixty-five, is an American actress, director, and humanitarian, typically known as either /u/she/Hollywoodrities or /u/amphibia Jolie.
Angelina Jolie was born in Sonnymoon, California, the youngest of four children of Robert and Esther Jolie. Her father was a prosperous art dealer. Her mother, a talented pianist and singer, raised her children by playing piano in their home. She sang in the family band, did voice training, and was an avid tennis player.
Angelina was eight years old when her parents took her to New York City to live with them when their other three siblings were off to college. At the age of six, she started attending public and private school at age seven. Her grades were average at best, but she liked them, since she felt like she made progress and was “getting somewhere”. On the strength of that experience, Angelina decided she wanted to be an actress.
Her first major break came on the TV series “So You Think You Can Dance”. She was not part of the main cast, but appeared in one episode as a replacement dancer who was a big hit with the audience. Following that episode, she landed roles in several more successful shows, and her net worth has increased accordingly. In 2021, she appeared in the action-adventure film “Tomb Raider Anniversary”, and it went on to become one of the highest grossing films of all time. While that film did not do very well at the box office, it did earn Jolie an Oscar nomination for the same role.
After that film, Jolie became interested in film writing, and she began producing and directing some of her own films. Her first two were self-written, but she received help from producing partner Brad Pitt and director Clint Eastwood. The next film she produced was the dramas “Unbroken” and “For a Few Dollars More”. Those films earned her the additional Oscar nomination she was hoping for.
Since her appearance on “The Secret”, Angelina Jolie’s net worth has increased substantially. She has decided to concentrate on her acting career, but continues to produce and direct movies. Her most recent film was the starring role in the film “Maleficent”, which was a box office hit. Not only did Jolie star in that film, but she also produced and directed it as well.
When Angelina Jolie turns fifty, the age at which she would become eligible to begin making films again, will no doubt be up in the air. At this point, age is no longer a factor, as people are beginning to opt for younger actors for leading roles. Will Jolie ever retire? She may have already indicated that she might, by releasing her first film after her marriage to Brad Pitt. Hopefully she will do so on both the big and little levels.
Her current net worth is certainly impressive. However, anyone who knows her personally, or sees her on the big screen, will know that she is not a product of youth, but of life. And, at age fifty, there is still a lot of life to give. This may be the year that Angelina Jolie finally steps into the realm of the rich and famous.
