Long before she was Billy Bob Thornton’s ex-wife and the female half of Brangelina, super sexy Angelina Jolie was an aspiring fashion model. She appeared in several music videos during the early 1990s, including Lenny Kravitz’s “Stand by My Woman,” The Lemonheads’ “It’s About Time” and Meat Loaf’s “Rock & Roll Dreams Come Through.”
Her critically acclaimed performances in the made-for-TV movies George Wallace in 1997 and Gia in 1998 may have led to her Academy Award winning role in the 1999 drama Girl, Interrupted (Angie took home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for playing mental institution patient Lisa Rowe alongside Winona Ryder, Brittany Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg and Vanessa Redgrave) but her portrayal of video game heroine Lara Croft in 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider turned her into one of the best-known and highest paid actresses in Hollywood.
Earlier this month, the company GK Films acquired the film rights to Lara Croft and plans to bring her back to the big screen by 2013 … with another actress filling Angie’s shoes. Producer Graham King described his plans in a press release as a “Lara Croft reboot.” He knows Jolie well (they worked together on The Tourist) but she hasn’t expressed much interest in returning to the character. Seen here with Brad and daughter Zahara, Angie looks captivating in a pair of rectangular Salvatore Ferragamo sunglasses. They’re available in black and dark Havana.
