Angelina Jolie (born June 4, 1975) is an American actress also known for her involvement in humanitarian work and her marriage to Brad Pitt. She won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Girl, Interrupted (1999).
In addition to her work as an actor and humanitarian, Jolie is famous for her beauty and widely perceived sex appeal, and in a 2002 article by Sarah Warn, lesbian website AfterEllen mused:
Straight Men. Straight Women. Bisexual Women and Lesbians. Moms and Dads. Seems everyone but gay men are swooning for Angelina. That straight men are drawn to her is no big surprise–but that so many women (lesbian, bi and straight) are attracted to Jolie is not as predictable. In fact, it is a development quite unlike anything we've seen in American culture before. Not because so many women are attracted to Jolie, but because so many of them have expressed this attraction publicly.
Most people would agree that Angelina Jolie is attractive. But there are many beautiful women in Hollywood, and few generate the same kind of overwhelming interest across genders and sexual orientations that she does.
