She is one of the most beautiful women in the world.
Angelina Jolie burst onto the big screen in the mid-1990s and has bewitched and beguiled audiences ever since.
From the very beginning she was not shy to show the face and figure that made her one of the biggest sex symbols in Hollywood history.
From 1996’s Mojave Moon to 2015’s By The Sea she mixes sex, sensuality and a fierce intelligence to challenge even as she strips in solo, straight and lesbian scenes.
WARNING ADULT CONTENT AND NUDITY
The first two clips are 20 years apart and show that she may be just as beautiful these days, but her body has changed from full-figured girl to sleek and sharp-edged woman.
Mojave Moon is a little-known road movie from 1996 where Jolie plays a free-spirited beauty who has her boyfriend’s dead body stashed in the trunk of a car.
Even as she steams up the screen (and the shower) she signals early on that she will be drawn to dangerous and edgy roles.
2015’s By The Sea showed a couple facing thier broken relationship. Directed by the actress and co-starring her husband Brad Pitt, it foreshadowed what was about to happen in their real lives.
The 1998 HBO biography Gia told the tragic story of model Gia Carangi.
It showed Jolie’s fearlessness as she stripped physically and emotionally in front of the camera and gained her Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards.
In the rather bizarre 2007 version of Beowulf, Jolie played Grendell’s mother. She may have played a monster, but her naked, gold-washed body dazzled Ray Winston’e titular hero.
The main gallery above also contains images from two other movies.
1996 low-budget drama Foxfire portrayed the trials and tribulations of four high-school girls. Jolie already shone on camera and shared teh screen with her then girl-friend Jennu Shimizu.
2001 erotic thriller Original Sin also starred Antonio Banderas and was a torrid affair set on Cuba in the 19th Century. It bombed with critic and audiences alike.
