Career: Actor-Writer-Producer-Director-Activist
Famous Family: Actor Jon Voight (father); actress-producer Marcheline Bertrand (mother)

She's got one Oscar, three Golden Globes, and six kids with Brad Pitt. With or without Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight as her dad, Angelina Jolie seemed destined to become the world's most famous woman. Like her father, Angelina has ventured behind the camera, writing, directing, and producing 2011's controversial In the Land of Blood and Honey, set during the Bosnian War.

She's also garnered a reputation as one of the world's most generous celebrities, donating half of her earnings to a variety of charitable organizations—many of which bear her name—and her frequent work with refugees has led to her appointments as a Special Envoy and Goodwill Ambassador. Yet for all her good deeds, we'll somehow never be able to erase the image of her wearing a vial of ex-husband's Billy Bob Thornton's blood around her neck.
