In 2007 American actress Angelina Jolie, one of Hollywood's brightest stars, continued to light up the screen and to use her celebrity to draw attention to the social issues she championed. Her highly publicized film A Mighty Heart (2007), in which she portrayed the widow of slain reporter Daniel Pearl, not only gave the small-budget movie a greater media presence but also provided the actress with a forum for speaking out about the plight of journalists reporting from war zones. She also continued in her role, begun in 2001, as a hands-on UN goodwill ambassador, work that had already taken her on awareness-raising campaigns to such countries as Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Pakistan (the site of Pearl's abduction and murder).
Jolie was the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. It did not take long for Jolie to follow in her parents' footsteps—she filmed a bit part in the comedy Lookin' to Get Out at the age of 5 and enrolled in the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute at 11. She became a professional model as a teenager and appeared in several music videos before transitioning into acting full-time. Jolie had prominent roles in the films Hackers (1995) and Foxfire (1996) and quickly became a popular sex symbol, but she was better known for her full lips and her numerous magazine covers than for her acting ability. Her career took off after appearances in two made-for-television productions; she played an embattled politician's wife in George Wallace (1997) and an AIDS-stricken supermodel in Gia (1998), roles that earned her back-to-back Golden Globe Awards. Her critically acclaimed performances continued in 1999 when she portrayed a psychiatric patient in Girl, Interrupted and earned the Academy Award for best supporting actress.
Following her Oscar win, Jolie starred in a string of big-budget films, including the video-game adaptation Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), the thriller Taking Lives (2004), and the tongue-in-cheek spy adventure Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005). The latter film paired her with Brad Pitt, and the two superstars began a relationship soon thereafter (Pitt was married at the time) that quickly became a media sensation, earning the pair the ubiquitous tabloid moniker “Brangelina.” Pitt in 2006 adopted Jolie's two children (whom she had previously adopted on her own in 2002 and 2005 from orphanages in Cambodia and Ethiopia, respectively), and the couple had their first biological child on May 27, 2006. They added a fourth child to their family in March 2007 when they adopted a boy from a Vietnamese orphanage. Pitt and Jolie characteristically used the public's interest in their relationship as a platform for speaking out for a cause; the pair vowed to never marry until couples of all sexual orientations were able to do so legally.
