Personal life 

Angelina Jolie Voight is the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. She was born in Los Angeles, California. After her parents divorced in 1976, she and her brother moved in with their mother, who had given up acting in order to raise her children.

She dated Anton Schneider in 2014 and flirted with British actor Jonny Lee Miller during the making of Hackers (1995). On the set of Foxfire, Jolie started a relationship with model-actress Jenny Shimizu.

Jolie married actor Billy Bob Thornton in May 2000 after a two-month engagement. They had met on the set of Pushing Tin (1999) but didn't date because Thornton was engaged to actress Laura Dern at the time, and Jolie was rumored to be seeing actor Timothy Hutton.

Jolie and Thornton announced the adoption of a child from Cambodia In March 2002. They split up three months later. On May 27, 2003, their divorce was finalized.

The actress next became romantically linked with actor Brad Pitt but they did not discuss their relationship publicly until January 2006 when she announced that she was expecting his child.

The couple was called "Brangelina" by the entertainment media and were the subject of worldwide media coverage during their twelve-year romance.

Jolie and Pitt went on to become one of Hollywood's most affluent couples. Before they announced their engagement in April 2012, their family had grown to include six children, three of whom were adopted.

On August 23, 2014, Jolie and Pitt got married in France. She adopted the moniker "Jolie Pitt" after the marriage. They divorced in September 2016, two years after they married.

The actress filed for divorce on September 19, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for her separation. The court dissolved their union on April 12, 2019.

Jolie is the mother of six children; including three sons and three daughters. Three of the children were adopted overseas, while the other three were born to their parents.

Quotes

"Therapy? I don't need that. The roles that I choose are my therapy."

"Because I am a bad girl, people always automatically think that I am a bad girl. Or that I carry a dark secret with me or that I'm obsessed with death. The truth is that I am probably the least morbid person one can meet. If I think more about death than some other people, it is probably because I love life more than they do."

"You're young, you're drunk, you're in bed, you have knives; shit happens."

Trivia

Was named one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in the World.

Is extremely close to and highly protective of her older brother James Haven. 

Is a collector of knives and is interested in mortuary science.

Started modeling at the age of 14.
