An Unauthorized story on Angelina Jolie
ʻSkin Deepʼ is a touching story of a warm-hearted woman with conviction, who is making a meaningful
mark on the world for the better of all.
Angelina Jolie has already lived a life that few could rival. She is the third actress in history to earn 20 million US
dollars for a single film. But winning accolades or positive publicity does not fuel her true mission in life. She is
driven by a genuine commitment to help those less fortunate. This quest runs skin deep in this remarkably loving
Angelina became personally aware of worldwide humanitarian crises whilst filming Tomb Raider, in poverty-
stricken Cambodia. Deeply affected by what she saw, Jolie then turned to the United Nations High
Commissioner for Refugees for more information.
Angelina became a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNHCR in 2002, and has continued her good work in more
than 20 countries around the world, highlighting the plight of millions of uprooted people and advocating for their
protection. At this time she also adopted her first child, a seven-month-old Cambodian orphan.
In 2005, she made her third visit to Pakistan, to help victims of the Kashmir earthquake. The Goodwill
Ambassador saw first-hand the impact of the natural disaster that had killed 86,000 people, and left over three
million homeless. Tragically about 11,000 children were left orphaned.
The devastation had a profound effect on Jolie. Along with partner Brad Pitt, who had accompanied her to
Pakistan, the couple donated 40 of the needed beds, valued at over 100 thousand US dollars.
Since that trip, Angelina and Brad have used their global profiles to generate support for causes that genuinely
don't appear in the mainstream media. They set up the Jolie-Pitt foundation, and in 2009 it donated one million
US dollars to help displaced families in Pakistan, and another one million US dollars to the Global Action for
Children Organization. Together they have visited countries such as Sudan, Chad, Haiti, and Darfur.
They have also cleverly used the publicʼs increasing interest in their lives to help the causes they feel most
strongly about – selling the birth photos of their first child together in 2005 for over seven and a half million US
dollars, and the 2008 photos of their newborn twins for an unprecedented 14 million US dollars – with all the
funds being donated to charity.
Another main priority for her and partner Brad Pitt is finding a balance between career and family – apart from
starring in such award winning films as Tomb Raider, Changling, Mr & Mrs Smith, Beyond Borders, and
Alexander, she is a devoted mother to her ever increasing family – her three adopted children: Maddox Chivan,
Zahara Marley, and Pax Thien; and her 3 children with Brad Pitt: Shiloh Nouvel, Knox Léon and Vivienne
