Angelina Jolie is a 42-year-old American actress, filmmaker, and humanitarian. She has won numerous accolades and is regularly regarded as Hollywood’s highest paid female actor. She has won an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and also three Golden Globe Awards. On top of all that acting, she has also received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and she is a staunch advocate of conservation, education and women’s rights.
Angelina and Brad Pitt got divorced back in September of 2016 and the pair shares six children together.
Three of those children were adopted internationally.
Angelina was born in 1975 in Los Angeles California, to Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand who were both actors at the time. But more recently it was during the premiere of Angelina’s new film, The Breadwinner, where she brought her two daughters to the fancy event.
Angelina was seen in an all-white dress for the red carpet while her two daughters decided to rock an all-black ensemble.
Angelina brought 11-year-old Shiloh and 12-year-old Zahara to the event. However, her youngest daughter, Vivienne who is only 9, decided not to attend.
Later, the three women were joined by 13-year-old actress Saara Chaudry, who stars in the film with Angelina.
The Breadwinner, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, is produced by Angelina Jolie and is based on the book written by Deborah Ellis.
The book (and film) is about an 11-year-old Afghan girl named Parvana who has to dress up as a boy in order to support her family since her father was suddenly arrested by the Taliban.
The author of the book, Deborah Ellis, has donated the royalties of her book sales to a charity that helps Afghan girls. So far her donations have amounted to more than 2 million dollars.
During an interview, Angelina said the story was ‘so powerful because it rings true for the situation of families wherever there is conflict or poverty or adversity.’
