When A-list celebrities come to mind, Angelina Jolie is at the top of that list, whether you like her or not. In the 1990s, she came on our screens with a bad girl reputation — especially after Girl, Interrupted and Gia came out. But, besides the eccentric characters she played on-screen, Jolie became a memorable staple in Hollywood after wearing blood vials around town and having her fair share of controversial relationships — some of which revealed her being into knife play.
In the years after, she would keep re-appearing on our screens, showing off her stellar acting skills in Changeling, The Tourist, the Lara Croft series and more. Through much of her career, she’s been known as one of the highest-paid female actresses in Hollywood. In the mid-2000s, Jolie started her career in directing, using her power to shine a light on the world’s more serious issues.
This humanitarian journey for her continued with her wood as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations. She put a focus on kids living in countries affected by war, and at the same time, put a focus on her own six kids. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she helped feed children around the world by donating $1 million to the No Kid Hungry organization.
While it’s obvious that Jolie is one of the industry’s top earners, most people aren’t aware of how huge her net worth actually is. It’s estimated at $120 million, and she earns a staggering yearly salary of approximately $20 million. She earned this same amount for each of her Lara Croft movies, and $10 million each for The Good Shepherd and A Mighty Heart. Between 2019 and 2020, she collected a comfortable $35 million.
