Portrayed by: Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie did a fantastic job portraying Mariane Pearl, the wife of slain journalist Daniel Pearl, in the 2007 film A Mighty Heart, and Pearl herself has said in interviews that she hand-picked Jolie to play her because “it is about who you are.” But we'd still like to point out that Jolie darkened her skin to play someone who is very clearly mixed-race.
