Jolie began working as a fashion model when she was 14 years old, modeling mainly in Los Angeles, New York and London. At that time she also appeared in numerous music videos, including those of Meat Loaf ("Rock & Roll Dreams Come Through"), Antonello Venditti ("Alta Marea"), Lenny Kravitz ("Stand by My Woman"), and The Lemonheads ("It's About Time").
Though she made her screen debut as a child alongside her father Jon Voight in the 1982 film Lookin' to Get Out, Jolie's acting career began in earnest a decade later with the low-budget production Cyborg 2 (1993). Her first leading role in a major film was in Hackers (1995). She starred in the critically acclaimed biographical films George Wallace (1997) and Gia (1998), and won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the drama Girl, Interrupted (1999). Jolie achieved wider fame after her portrayal of video game heroine Lara Croft in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), and since then has established herself as one of the best-known and highest-paid actresses in Hollywood.
Angelina Jolie began her career as a teen model, then switched to acting in 1990's. Within a few short years, she won three consecutive Golden Globe Awards and an Academy Award for her role in "Girl, Interrupted". From there her career exploded and she was soon one of the most powerful women in show business.
In recent years she has devoted more of her time to humanitarian affairs, and was recently named Good Will Ambassador for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees.

Do you like Angelina Jolie more nowI admit, I feel a little guilty because I thought she was somewhat shallow earlier on, but her recent braveness in getting a mastectomy makes me think what a beautiful and brave person - inside and out. How about you?
