During her school days in Beverly Hills, Angelina Jolie often felt left out because almost all of her classmates came from wealthy families, while Jolie even had to wear second-hand clothes and was often teased because of her very thin body. As a result, Jolie developed auto-aggressive behavior and stopped acting at the age of 14. At the time, she was considering becoming a funeral director.

In 2005 Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt,one of Hollywood’s most desirable men, whom she charmed with her own mix of sexy adventuress and caring mother. Brad quickly adopted Angelina’s children, both of whom also have biological children Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne. Pax was the last adopted child in the family. In 2012, the dream couple announced their engagement, and then in 2014 they got married in a small circle at a winery on the Côte d’Azur. Angelina then took the surname Jolie Pitt. After twelve years of relationship, the couple separated in September 2016 and filed for divorce.
