The actress was born on the 4th of June, 1975, in Los Angeles, California. This means Angelina Jolie's age is 46 as of 2021. What is Angelina Jolie's real name? Her birth name is Angelina Jolie Voight.
Her parents were also actors, and they are Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. Angelina Jolie's brother was named James Haven and is also an actor. Her other famous relatives are her uncles Barry Voight, a geologist and volcanologist, and Chip Taylor, a singer and songwriter.
Voight first went to Beverly Hills High School, but she felt marginalized because most of the other students came from wealthy families. Other students also bullied her because she was thin and wore glasses and braces. Her next school was Moreno High School, an alternative school, where she established herself as a “punk outsider”.
What disease does Angelina Jolie have? She had problems with an eating disorder and insomnia, which pushed her into doing drugs. She suffered depression and contemplated suicide when she was 19 and 22.
When she was 16, the star committed to acting professionally but was not passing auditions because producers deemed her demeanour "too dark". During this time, she made appearances in five of her brother's student films. Even though Angelina Jolie's height of 5'7" would make her a great model, she never had an interest in modelling.
She appeared in several music videos like Lenny Kravitz's Stand by My Woman (1991), Antonello Venditti’s Alta Marea (1991), The Lemonheads’ It’s About Time (1993), and Meat Loaf’s Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through (1993).
Voight noticed that if she was to be a successful actress, she had to learn from her father, especially concerning observing people and acting like them. Her professional film career debuted in 1993 with a leading role in Cyborg 2. Unfortunately, the film disappointed her, and as a result, she did not audition again for the following year.
Even though other Angelina Jolie's movies such as Hacker (1995), Love Is All There Is (1996), and Mojave Moon (1996) were not that successful, Voight’s performances always stood out. She was getting more and bigger roles that cemented her place in Hollywood.
As a director, she directed the documentary A Place in Time (2007), In the Land of Blood and Honey (2011), Unbroken (2014), By the Sea (2015) and Frist They Killed My Father (2017). As a humanitarian, Angelina Voight has worked with UNHCR as its ambassador. Voight is also engaged in the conservancy, having purchased 60,000 hectares of Samlout national park in Cambodia.

During the shooting of the 1995 film Hackers, Jolie and Jonny Lee Miller started a romantic relationship.
Miller and Jolie reconnected and tied the knot in 1996 after staying apart for several months. During the wedding, Voight rocked black rubber pants and a white T-shirt. The marriage lasted for about one year, but they remained friends.
Before marrying Miller, Voight had been in a relationship with model-actress Jenny Shimizu when they shot Foxfire (1996). In 2000, Voight and actor Billy Bob Thornton got married after a two-month courtship. In 2002, they adopted a child from Cambodia, but they separated three months later and divorced in 2003.
In 2016, Voight became pregnant with Brad Pitt's child, but it was not until 2014 when the two officially got married. Jolie and Pitt's family grew to have six children over the year, three of whom were adopted before their engagement.
