Angelina Jolie

The Best Leader in the World

Angelina Jolie

Born in Los Angles, California, Angelina Jolie may be the greatest leader in the world. She has done so many thing to deserve that title. Since she joined with the UN's refugee agency in 2001, she has undertaken 50 field missions to countries. A U.K Foreign Secretary William Hague who has worked with Mrs. Jolie on efforts to end a plague of rape in war-torn regions says "Angelina represents a new type of leadership in the 21st century".

Mrs. Jolie's Childhood

Angelina Jolie was born in Los Angeles, California in June 4, 1975. She is a daughter of married actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. Angelina's parents split up before she was two-years-old, and her mother moved back to the East Coast with Angelina and her brother James, where they lived in the Palisades, in the state of New York. Despite her parents' divorce, Angelina remembers her childhood as being a happy one. Money was tight while Angelina was growing up, but Marcheline made a point of taking her children to the movies as often as possible. Angelina claims that these family movie outings were what first inspired her to dream of becoming an actress.
