Voted as one of the sexiest women of the world in more than 10 internationally-distributed magazines, Angelina Jolie is at the top of almost every man’s fantasy wish list; and most women’s too. In fact, it’s hard not to drool over the self-proclaimed bad girl with her full, pouty lips, knockout chest and remarkable talent onscreen. The resemblance isn’t a coincidence; Angelina Jolie is in fact a real world-version of Lara Croft. Born in 1975 as Angelina Jolie Voight, the booming actress quickly changed her last name to avoid any resemblance or connection to the success of father Jon Voight. Although she studied at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute at a young age, by the time she turned 16, Angelina had turned her attention to a career as a professional model in big cities like London and New York . When Angelina became a star in the music world although, with famous artists like the Rolling Stones, Meatloaf and Lenny Kravitz casting her in their videos, she promptly jumped back into acting and began work at the Met Theater Group in Los Angeles after a short stint at the New York University film school.
After appearing in her first starring role in the sequel to the Van Damme sci-fi hit, “Cyborg,” Angelina snatched a role in the cult film, “Hackers,” alongside future husband Johnny Lee Miller, and although their marriage lasted longer than a J-Lo engagement, by 2000, the couple was divorced after years of separation. The growing actress continued to appear in a number of other, low-budget films, but she managed to receive rave reviews for most of her performances. Angelina finally got her first big break with the HBO film, “Gia,” based on the true story of model Gia Carangi, and was garnered with a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress and an Emmy nomination that would carry her into Hollywood with a waiting room full of horny studio execs ready to offer her the next big role. Nearly a star for only a year, Angelina began appearing in blockbuster films with big-name actors, and she wasn't letting them push her around.
By 2000, Angelina walked away with another Golden Globe, this time for Best Actress, and showed no signs of slowing down. Her wild lifestyle was unruly, but when she decided to marry fellow actor Billy Bob Thornton in May of 2000, fans thought she had gone nuts: the couple swapped spit in public, bore tattoos of each other’s names and carried around vials of their lover’s blood wherever they went. Angelina quickly changed from a hot punk rocker to a creepy, morbid vampire, and her questionable relationship to brother James Haven still racks the minds of most media critics. Regardless of her past choices, Angelina has sincerely turned it around for the better. She is now an active supporter of aiding third world countries in need of economical help, has adopted a young Cambodian boy who gets to wear designer baby clothes and a stylin’ Mohawk, and has continued to push the envelope in the roles she chooses. If you thought Angelina was a babe before, she’s a whole new category with class.

Angelina on the Screen
Angelina's screen credits range from fluff to Oscar-worthy, but she never fails to entertain in whatever role she takes on, whether its as a big busted action hero or a dreadlock-covered car thief. While Angelina's first major role was as an aspiring model in "Gia," most cult fans know her as the dangerous hacker, Acid Burn, in the techno-pop film "Hackers." Along with notable performances in the underrated "Life or Something Like It," the award-nominated "Girl, Interrupted," as well as chilling thrillers like "Original Sin" and "Taking Lives," Angelina's most beloved role came when she picked up her guns, stuck out her chest and brought to life PC-dream girl, Lara Croft, in "Tomb Raider" and "The Cradle of Life." Her most recent work includes Clint Eastwood's "Changeling," the comic book adaptation "Wanted," and the action spy film, "Salt." She also released her directorial debut, "In the Land of Blood and Honey" in 2011.
On her love of knives:
"I've collected weapons since I was a little girl."
"You're young, you're drunk, you're in bed, you have knives; shit happens!"
"This is going to sound insane, but there was a time when I was going to hire somebody to kill me."
"I'm the person most likely to sleep with my female fans."
"When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers I kind of wanted to be a vampire."
On sex, part two:
"I am always on top. It's really unfortunate. I am begging for the man that can put me on the bottom. Or the woman. Anybody that can take me down."
On sex, part three:
"I need more sex, okay? Before I die I wanna taste everyone in the world."
