ANGELINA JOLIE – HOLLYWOOD’S EXOTIC ACTRESS

Angelina Jolie (full name Angelina Jolie Voight) was born on 4 June, 1975 in Los Angeles, California, USA. She is a famous American actress and a former model. She is known for her exotic looks, her tumultuous off-screen life and her humanitarian work with refugees. Regarding her family, Angelina Jolie is the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand and sister of James Haven. She is also niece of Chip Taylor and the god-daughter of Jacqueline Bisset and Maximilian Schell. Her grandparents were French-Canadian and her paternal-grandfather was from Czechoslovakia. Thus, she is of Czech and English descent on her father’s side and of French-Canadian and
Iroquois on her mother’s.

As a teenager , she dreamed of becoming a funeral director. She attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute from the age of 11, later attending Beverly Hills High School. Though Angelina Jolie enrolled at the film school at New York University after finishing “Gia”, she did not complete her studies. She has been long estranged from her father, blaming his infidelity for the break-up of the family , though a reconciliation was attempted by his appearing with her in “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider”. In 2004, Angelina Jolie indicated that she was no longer interested in pursuing a relationship with her father, but that she did not hate him because she realised that “…we only have so much energy in this life”. Soon afterwards, he claimed that she has “serious emotional problems” while she legally dropped Voight as her last name and took “Angelina Jolie” as new legal name.

Before Angelina Jolie began a career as an actress, she was a model. Her first starring role came in the 1995 film Hackers. In 1998 Angelina Jolie achieved a major critical success, starring in the TV film “Gia”, the true story of 1970-80s supermodel Gia Carangi, who died of AIDS. She won Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Golden Satmifie awards and was nominated for an Emmy. She had roles in several box-office flops until 1999, when she co-starred in “The Bone Collector” with Denzel Washington and won an Oscar for “Girl, Interrupted”. Beside the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, the latter movie also brought three Golden Globes. Her first healding blockbuster role came from “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider”.

Several of her subsequent films, such as “Life or Something Like It”, “Alexander” and “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” were box-office disappointments, although Jolie herself usually received good notices. She did provide the voice of Lola in the successful animated film “Shark Tale”. Jolie quickly became one of Hollywood’s most “in-demand” actresses. Following the success of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” (2005), she was set to earn up to $15 million to star in the film “The Good Shepherd” (2006).

Apart from her acting and humanitarian endeavours, Jolie has worked as a professional model in London, New York and Los Angeles and appeared in numerous music videos, including those of Korn, Meat Loaf, Lenny Kravitz, and The Rolling Stones.

MEGAN FOX – THE TRANSFORMERS GIRL

Megan Fox is born on May 16, 1986 in Rockwood, Tennessee. She is a slender, olive-skinned actress whose elegant beauty is somewhat offset by a collection of vivid tattoos (including a portrait of Marilyn Monroe on her right forearm and the King Lear quote “We all laugh at gilded butterflies” on her right shoulder blade), Megan Fox knew she wanted to be an actress from age three, and never once considered another line of work. A native of Memphis, TN, Fox began taking dance lessons when she was five years old and continued perfecting her graceful movements even after her family relocated to Florida five years later. At 13, the aspiring starlet enrolled in modeling and acting classes. It didn’t take long for all of Fox’s hard work to pay off, with a role in the 2001 Olsen twins comedy Holiday in the Sun marking the ambitious actress’ official screen debut.

Over the course of the next few years, Fox became a frequent fixture on television thanks to roles on What I Like About You, Two and a Half Men, and Hope & Faith. In 2004, Fox would torment a fledgling Lindsay Lohan in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, though it was Fox’s performance as a human caught in the middle of an epic robot battle that would truly prove her calling card to Hollywood. Cast as the love interest of Shia LaBeouf in Michael Bay’s 2007 blockbuster Transformers, Fox turned more than a few heads while fighting for the future of the human race. In 2008, Fox could be spotted opposite Kirsten Dunst, Simon Pegg, Jeff Bridges, and Gillian Anderson in the Robert B Weide directed comedy “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People”.

Since adulthood she’s been a favorite of cheesecake magazines, and the success of Transformers cemented her status as a pin-up girl of the tomboy variety. FHM magazine named her the sexiest woman in the world in its 2008 poll. She also starred as a killer cheerleader in the 2009 comic horror film Jennifer’s Body. After calling off their first engagement, Fox and longtime beau Brian Austin Green, 36, get engaged a second time and make it official while vacationing on the big island of Hawaii in June. “Yes they are married,” a rep for the 24-year-old actress confirms to PEOPLE.

MILEY CYRUS – THE HANNA MONTANA SMILEY GIRL

Miley Cyrus (real name Destiny Hope Cyrus) was born in 1992, in Tennessee. She earned the nickname “Miley” as she was constantly smiling as a child. Her parents, Billy Ray and Leticia, were related to Hollywood. Thus, little Miley was always fond of acting. Her debut TV appearance was in the father’s TV show Doc. After that, she also starred in movies like Big Fish.

After a tough and long audition, she was selected to act in the lead role in Hannah Montana on Disney Channel in 2006. There she played a double role as a teenage pop star, still in high school. The show scored enormous success and turned the young girl into a star very soon. The songs of the show also became popular with the fans and there was a huge demand for CDs of those tracks.

Responding to this stipulation, she set out on a live tour, which in turn produced huge publicity. In the meantime she appeared on the magazine Vanity Fair. Though most of the photos, by photographer Annie Leibovitz, were satisfying, a few of them showed an overexposed Miley Cyrus. With that she received mixed response from the critic world; the debate giving the young star further media hype.

On October 24, 2006, Walt Disney Records released the Hannah Montana Sountrack, which includes eight songs she performed as Hannah Montana. In June 26, 2007, Miley released a double album called “Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus”. The first disc was the second Hannah Montana soundtrack, while the other one was her debut album. It contains ten songs, from which Miley co-wrote eight. Miley is good friends with Mitchell Musso, Emily Osment, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale.

With starring for the third season in Hannah Montana, she also gave voice to the lead character in Pixar’s Bolt. The movie release of Hannah Montana is also due in 2009. Apart from these, Miley has been given million dollars for writing an autobiography and Portfolio magazine has said Miley Cyrus “will be worth over $1 billion by the time she is 18”. Miley Cyrus is famous for acting in the lead role for the superhit Disney Channel TV show Hannah Montana. She is also the daughter of country musician Billy Ray Cyrus.MOVIES
