My favourite actress is Angelina Jolie because she is not only beautiful but also smart and talented. She was born on 4 June 1975 in Los Angeles, USA. Her father, Jon, was already an established superstar.She started her career very young and she didn't rely on her father's help but on her own talent. At age 11, Angelina began studying at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute. She studied film at New York University and later joined the Met Theatre Group in Los Angeles.
Her first good movie was the Bone Collector where she started along with Denzel Washington. She was also the star of the series based on a computer game The Tomb Raider. When she filmed Mr. and Mrs Smith she met Brad Pitt. Eventually they got married being the most famous couple in the world. She was voted as the sexiest woman alive and one of the most intelligent celebrities from Hollywood. She was also named one of the most influential people in the world. She is strong, independent and dynamic and she's an exceptional mother and actress.
I don't like her only because she's a good actress but also because she's understanding with the less fortunate people of the world. While filming Tomb Raider in Cambodia she witnessed the natural beauty, culture and poverty of that country. She considered this an eye opening experience and so began the humanitarian chapter of her life. She began visiting refugee camps around the world and came to be formally appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Some of her experiences were written and published in her popular book "Notes from My Travels" whose profits go to United Nations. Angelina has stated that she now plans to spend most of her time in humanitarian efforts, to be financed by her actress salary. She devotes one third of her income to savings, one third to living expenses and one third to charity.
In 2002, Angelina adopted a Cambodian refugee boy named Maddox and in 2005 adopted an Ethiopian refugee girl named Zahara. She also adopted a three-year-old Vietnamese boy named Pax. She adopted 3 children of another race but this doesn't stop her to love them like she loves her own daughter. In 2003 she acted in a movie named Beyond Borders which reflects some of her real life humanitarian experiences.
