Date of Birth
June 04, 1975
Birth Place
Los Angeles, Calif.
Before making house with movie star Brad Pitt, Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie didn't have a problem generating headlines solo: She shared a shocking kiss with her brother, had bisexual interludes with a Calvin Klein model and wore a vial of ex-husband Billy Bob Thorton's blood around her neck.

Of late, though, the bee-stung-lipped wild child has transformed into a globe-trotting U.N. Goodwill Ambassador and mother of six – three of them adopted (Maddox, Pax and Zahara) and three (daughter Shiloh and twins Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline) conceived with Pitt, whom she married on Aug. 23, 2014.
