RELATED: Stars who've worked with their kids
Angelina Jolie made her acting debut alongside her dad, Jon Voight, and screen legend Ann-Margret in the 1982 film "Lookin' to Get Out." Though the Oscar-winning actor helped his little girl launch her career in Hollywood, their relationship hasn't always been easy. He left her mom, the late actress Marcheline Bertrand, when Angelina was just a toddler, and they've spent long periods of time estranged from one another over the years.
Angelina Jolie's teen years were rough. The star suffered from depression, which led to self-harm through cutting. Here, a solemn-looking Angie — who was 16 at the time — posed during a photo shoot in Los Angeles on Jan. 11, 1991.
Angelina Jolie starred opposite Jonny Lee Miller in the 1995 cult classic "Hackers" — her third feature film. They eloped in Las Vegas in March 1996, just six months after their crime-drama debuted. But it wasn't meant to be: They divorced three years later.
Another Hollywood love affair! Angelina Jolie briefly dated fellow actress Jenny Shimizu (center), with whom she starred in the 1996 flick "Foxfire." Jenny Lewis, Hedy Burress and Sarah Rosenberg also appeared in the coming-of-age drama.
In 1998, Angelina Jolie took home her first Golden Globe for her work as Cornelia Wallace on the TV movie "George Wallace."
Angelina Jolie starred as Gia Carangi in the 1998 HBO film "Gia." The following year, she won her second Golden Globe for her performance as the late supermodel.
Angelina Jolie starred opposite Winona Ryder as the sociopathic Lisa in the 1999 drama "Girl, Interrupted." She won an Oscar and a Golden Globe — her third in three years — for her work in the film.
Angelina Jolie didn't just win the Oscar for best supporting actress during the 2000 Academy Awards. She also caused quite a stir while walking the red carpet before the telecast kicked off when she gave her brother, James Haven, a big ol' kiss on the lips. She stirred up more controversy during her acceptance speech when she said she was "so in love" with her sibling, which left many wondering about the nature of their close relationship.
Angelina Jolie married "Pushing Tin" co-star Billy Bob Thornton in Las Vegas in May 2000. As a sign of devotion, the actress tattooed his name on her arm — as seen here at the Los Angeles premiere of her film "Gone in 60 Seconds," which they attended together just a month after tying the knot. The crazy couple divorced in 2003.
Angelina Jolie starred as the titular heroine in 2001's "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," which received mostly negative reviews from critics but performed decently at the box office — well enough to score a sequel, anyway. Angelina's dad, Jon Voight, co-starred as Lord Richard Croft, her character's father, in the big-screen adaptation of the beloved video game. But their renewed relationship would be short-lived: They were on the outs again within a year. In 2002, Jon memorably told "Access Hollywood" that his daughter had "carried a lot of pain" over the years and implied that she needed help with mental health issues.
Angelina Jolie's mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand, joined her at the premiere of her film "Original Sin" in Los Angeles on July 31, 2001. It was the last time the duo were pictured together in public before Marcheline died from cancer in 2007. (And, yes, that is a vial of Angie's then-husband Billy Bob Thornton's blood around her neck.)
Angelina Jolie beamed with pride when she was appointed to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees in Geneva on Aug. 27, 2001. She received the honor following two goodwill trips, including one to Sierra Leone, where she did research for her role in 2003's "Beyond Borders."
In 2002, Angelina Jolie adopted her first child, son Maddox, from Cambodia, where she shot "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" in 2000. The duo were photographed out and about in Los Angeles in June 2002, just a few months after the actress signed the adoption papers — which conspicuously made no mention of her then-husband, Billy Bob Thornton.
Angelina Jolie debuted a new tattoo at the premiere of "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" in London on Aug. 19, 2003. The actress traveled to Thailand to have this Buddhist protection prayer hammered into her shoulder — yes, hammered — to honor her son, Maddox. Meanwhile, her old "Billy Bob" tattoo had started to disappear.
Angelina Jolie starred opposite Brad Pitt in the 2005 hit "Mr. & Mrs. Smith." Rumors swirled that the duo had become more than friends while working together on the 2004 set of the action flick, but they maintained their relationship was strictly platonic. Still, between the time the film wrapped shooting in 2004 and opened in box offices in June 2005, Brad and then-wife Jennifer Aniston had called it quits.
Just months after Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston called it quits, he traveled with Angelina Jolie to Ethiopia, where she adopted her second child, daughter Zahara, in June 2005. The mother-daughter duo stepped out together in New York City on Aug. 12, 2005. Four months later, Brad petitioned to adopt both Zahara and her big brother, Maddox.
Robert De Niro directed a pregnant Angelina Jolie on the set of his sophomore directorial effort, "The Good Shepherd," in the Dominican Republic on Jan. 12, 2006. The Oscar-winning actress was expecting her first biological child at the time. She and partner Brad Pitt welcomed a baby girl, Shiloh, just four months later.
In March 2007, Angelina Jolie adopted her fourth child — a 3-year-old boy named Pax — from Vietnam. (According to People magazine, because Vietnamese law makes it difficult for unmarried couples to adopt, she took custody of the tot sans then-partner Brad Pitt.) A few days after they made it official, the Oscar winner was photographed carrying her new addition as they boarded a jet at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi, Vietnam, on March 21, 2007.
Angelina Jolie starred as French journalist Mariane Pearl in 2007's "A Mighty Heart." The following year, she earned her fourth Golden Globe nomination for her work in the biopic.

Angelina Jolie starred as Christine Collins in 2008's "Changeling," another drama based on a true story. She earned her second Oscar nomination and her fifth Golden Globe nomination for her performance in the film.
On Jan. 27, 2009, in one of their earliest public outings as a family of eight, Angelina Jolie and then-partner Brad Pitt were photographed at Japan's Narita International Airport with all six of their children — Pax, Maddox, Knox, Vivienne, Zahara and Shiloh. (You can just barely make out Maddox on the left behind little brother Pax.)
Angelina Jolie spent the fall of 2010 shooting "In the Land of Blood and Honey." Though she'd previously directed the 70-minute 2007 documentary "A Place in Time," the drama marked her feature film directorial debut. It came out in late 2011 and earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.
Angelina Jolie starred opposite Johnny Depp in 2010's "The Tourist." Despite dismal reviews from critics, the flick performed well at the international box office and earned three Golden Globe nominations in 2011: best comedy or musical, best actor in a comedy or musical and best actress in a comedy or musical — Angelina's sixth Golden Globe nomination.
Angelina Jolie took a break from appearing on camera between 2010's "The Tourist" and 2014's "Maleficent." During that time, the Oscar winner focused on her family and her humanitarian efforts. In March 2011, she visited displaced families in Kabul, Afghanistan, as part of her work as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for refugees.
But Angelina Jolie didn't leave Hollywood completely during her time away from the spotlight. She returned to the "Kung Fu Panda" franchise to voice the role of Tigress in 2011's "Kung Fu Panda 2" and teamed up with co-star Jack Black to promote the film during the 64th Cannes Film Festival in France on May 12, 2011.
All eyes were on Angelina Jolie — or at least on her right leg — when she memorably posed in a stunning black Versace gown during the 84th Academy Awards in Hollywood on Feb. 26, 2012. The Oscar winner — who attended the award show in support of partner Brad Pitt, who earned nominations in the Best Actor and Best Picture categories for his work on "Moneyball" that year — spawned countless jokes, memes and Twitter accounts with her major red carpet moment.
It was the bling seen around the world! There was no denying that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were engaged after she was photographed sporting a massive sparkler on THAT finger while visiting the Los Angeles County Museum of Art with the actor and son Pax on April 11, 2012.
In May 2013, Angelina Jolie revealed in a New York Times op-ed that she underwent a double mastectomy after testing positive for BRCA1, a gene that predisposes her to breast and ovarian cancer. Less than a month after the revelation, she attended her first major Hollywood event — the world premiere of Brad Pitt's movie "World War Z" — in London on June 2, 2013.

Angelina Jolie was photographed on the Sydney set of the biopic "Unbroken," which she directed, on Dec. 6, 2013.

Angelina Jolie appeared on the big screen for the first time since 2010's "The Tourist" in 2014's "Maleficent." Her daughter, Vivienne, made her acting debut as the younger version of Elle Fanning's character, the princess Aurora, in the live-action reimagining of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty."
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt secretly tied the knot at their private vineyard and estate, Chateau Miraval, in Correns, France, on Aug. 23, 2014. Their kids — Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox — all participated in the ceremony, and their mom's Versace wedding dress even featured some of their artwork. The family appeared on the cover of People magazine the following month.

Between late 2015 and early 2016, Angelina Jolie shot the Netflix film "First They Killed My Father" in Cambodia. The biopic is based on the life of Loung Ung (right), a Cambodian human rights activist who grew up under the rule of the Khmer Rouge. The project was a family affair for the Oscar-winning actress. Her eldest son, Maddox, worked on the film's production and his younger brother, Pax, shot still photos (including this one!) on the set.
Angelina Jolie kept a low profile throughout the remainder of 2016 as her breakup from Brad Pitt grew increasingly contentious. After the dust finally settled, she and their children (Shiloh, Vivienne, Knox, Zahara, Pax and Maddox) attended the the premiere of her Netflix film "First They Killed My Father" at the Terrace of the Elephants at the Angkor Wat Temple Complex in Siem Reap, Cambodia, on Feb. 18, 2017. (Netflix has yet to announce when the biopic will debut.)
