Angelina Jolie is an Academy Award-winning actress who rose to fame after her role in Girl, Interrupted, playing the title role in the Lara Croft blockbuster movies, as well as Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Wanted, Salt and Maleficent. Off-screen, Jolie has become prominently involved in international charity projects, especially those involving refugees.
In the mid-1990s, her critical acclaim increased when she played a strong role in George Wallace, which won her a Golden Globe Award and an Emmy nomination. Jolie's acclaim increased even further when she played the lead role in the HBO production Gia. Jolie's performance again garnered a Golden Globe Award and another Emmy nomination, and she additionally earned a SAG Award. Jolie got a major break in 1999 when she won a leading role in the successful feature The Bone Collector, starring alongside Denzel Washington. In that same year, Jolie gave a tour de force performance in Girl, Interrupted playing opposite Winona Ryder. The small film received mixed reviews and barely made money at the box office, but when it came time to give out awards, Jolie won the triple crown - Girl, Interrupted propelled her to win the Golden Globe Award, the SAG Award and the Academy Award for best leading actress in a supporting role.
One of the Lara Croft movies' filming locations was Cambodia. While there, Jolie witnessed the natural beauty, culture and poverty of that country. She considered this an eye opening experience, and so began the humanitarian chapter of her life. Jolie began visiting refugee camps around the world and came to be formally appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Some of her experiences were written and published in her popular book "Notes from My Travels," whose profits go to UNHCR. In 2002, Angelina adopted a Cambodian refugee boy named Maddox, and in 2005, adopted an Ethiopian refugee girl named Zahara.
