Angelina Jolie is not the wife of one paper. At age 39, assumes the most relevant of them: the Ambassador of multiple social causes. And above all, it is said knew his true mission. 

Sixteen years ago, Angelina Jolie divulged his first job as a protagonist in the documentary GIA - Fame and destruction, HBO. Was a girl of 23 years, and now as lean as scared as much attention - rarely lifted his gaze, constantly fumbling in long hair, nervous smile. "I knew what I wanted as a profession, but was unaware of what was really such fame. Actually, I never was very interested in it, "says the actress today, with the calm and confidence of those who reached maturity. 

With "such of fame", but Angelina had to live early. Born in Los Angeles, the daughter of actor and producer American Jon Voight and model and also American actress Marcheline Bertrand, she made her film debut at age 7, beside her father in the film "Looking To Get Out" . At 11, he studied drama at the Lee Strasberg studio, with whom his mother had graduated. Had a difficult adolescence, with bouts of depression and a punk-goth phase, which overcame with the help of work. Between 1995 and 1999, began to excel in roles that privilege, and its exotic beauty, the ability to interpret complex characters such as the sociopathic Lisa Rowe in Girl, Interrupted. "Angelina is a great talent. Has the gift of being fragile and strong at the same time "defines producer and screenwriter Deborah Calia, president of the Producers Guild of America, the union of producers in the United States. 

This multifaceted personality earned the actress a series of nominations and awards, including three Golden Globes [George Wallace, Gia - Fame and destruction and Girl interrupted] and the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress [Girl interrupted]. But professional success also brought internal conflicts of the past and a major exhibition of his personal life. The fame of rebel, public fights with his father, the tumultuous marriages - to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton- and bizarre red carpet appearances, as at the Oscars in 2000 when she was photographed giving a kiss on the mouth own brother, James Haven Voight director, became recurring theme in the media. Clint Eastwood, who directed her in the movie "The Changeling (2008)," interest in this particular life that Angelina just sometimes overshadowing their professional competence. "As she lives on magazine covers for reasons that have nothing to do with his work, it is very easy for people to forget the great professional that is. I've worked with great actresses, but I believe that none of them has reached the set as prepared as Angelina. She is not afraid to take risks, to feel and exhibit emotions on camera. It works simultaneously with intelligence and instinct. "

In 2001, Angelina decided to direct this dedication beyond the film set. During the shooting of Lara Croft, Tomb Raider in Cambodia when confronted with problems in a region ravaged by conflict, the actress had what he calls awakening: it was the beginning of his involvement in humanitarian causes. Ali adopted her first child, Maddox, now 13. After taking the union with actor Brad Pitt, in 2005, she repeated the feat two more times: in Vietnam, brought Pax, who turns 11 years in late November; Ethiopia, Zahara, now nine years [in the sequence came the biological children of the duo, Shiloh, 8, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 6 years]. 

In 2OO3 Angelina Jolie Maddox created the institution, responsible for building schools and hospitals in Kenya, Cambodia, Afghanistan and Ethiopia - where it is, for example, Zahara Children's Center, dedicated to people with HIV and tuberculosis. Four years later, with her husband, renamed the Maddox Jolie Project-Pitt Foundation. Today, the actress ranks as the Special Envoy of the High Commissioner for Refugees United Nations and, since June, is Lady Angelina Jolie, Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George, a title granted by Queen Elizabeth II for its important social work . "Being able to take small steps toward some real improvement is a great satisfaction," she says. 

Is difficult to imagine this woman in a discreet black Valentino and Louis Vuitton heels, crossing areas of conflict, visiting refugee camps or sleeping in tents ... But this is a mission that Angelina embraced with the same passion he devotes to other things in your life --a way, according to itself, to make sense of everything that has won throughout his career. 

In an interview with City during the launch of his latest film, Maleficent, the actress spoke about their choices, including how to manage the large family Jolie-Pitt. 

CJ: What is luxury for you? 

AJ: Time and health. 

CJ: And how do you manage the time in the house of the Jolie-Pitt family? 

AJ: If I'm filming, I come home, wherever "home" is because generally took the kids with us when we are out - and I book a time for them individually. Always talking to each one to know about the day, what they are thinking. When you are ready, play, but often they just want to talk. How are educated at home, it is important to have a schedule of activities. Brad and I got to 7h3o, prepare breakfast and we wake them. The 8h3o leave you with teachers. Then we went to work and came back in time for dinner, which is always the 18h3o. No matter how the day was, we do everything to be home. 

CJ: Do you believe your children are interested in a career of their parents? 

AJ: Do not want to keep them away from the possibility of acting, just think it's no good just having it as the center of life. Maddox, for example, is very fond of music and literature, and on vacation, working as an intern in our office [Brad Pitt has his own production company, Plan B]. Others always end up giving a way to appear on the set, which can be a mess, but it's always fun. Do not want to disrupt their formation, only to grow with pride of who they are and what they like. 

CJ: So how do you debuted in cinema with his father, Vivienne works the first time at his side, on Maleficent. It was you who made ​​the call, no? 

AJ: I do not have the guts to make a formal invitation, because I know well that the last thing that Vivienne wants in life is being a princess [she plays the young Princess Aurora in the film]. So I did a very informal approach and she found it funny. Was slightly offended to be considered for the role of Princess, but eventually accepted the idea, especially after he invented another character, Marcus best friend, Maleficent, which also has horns and a bow and arrow. 

CJ: She was not afraid to see you transformed into the character? 

AJ: He wondered a little, but the hardest part was putting it in a princess dress. Then she began to have fun. And I was doing some tests at home. At night, before bed, to tell stories to children, started using the voices I wanted to do as Maleficent. Was easy: choose which provoked much laughter among them. 

CJ: How is the relationship between your children? They get along? 

AJ: Shiloh is a tomboy. Maddox is the most serious. As there are six, eventually forming pairs. Pax and Shiloh are skate together, the two are crazy about skateboarding. Already Zahara and Vivienne love playing with dolls. And everyone likes to swim, wave and are extremely curious and interested in learning new things. It makes our job as parents to be much easier. 

CJ: How do you balance the routine actress and her activism? 

AJ: Looking for dedicating specific to one thing and the other periods. Today the work that moves me most is the humanitarian. And something I could never stop doing. 

CJ: Do you involve children in their social work? 

AJ: whenever possible. When I was recently in refugee camps on the border of Jordan, took Pax me. Want them to have, already, awareness of what happens in the world. When they can not go, studying at home, with teachers, about where I am, what is happening in that region, and as I am trying to help. I want my children to know how difficult it is to be a child in certain places, and how these people are survivors. 

CJ: You became a leader in the fight for human rights, especially to end violence against women. Horn started the interest in these issues? 

AJ: This idea has always been present in my life. My mother used to engage in human rights issues [Marcheline Bertrand died at age 56, a victim of cancer]. She was descended from the Huron Indian tribe [one of the first to inhabit regions like Canada] and was one of the creators of the Foundation For All Tribes, supporting the first inhabitants of the Americas. And I always followed the events. 

CJ: Was there a special event for you to start putting your hands dirty? 

AJ: My awakening came when I was in Cambodia filming the first Tomb Raider. Heard stories of everything the country had passed and I began to talk with women who worked on the film crew. So much suffering, so much loss, and they still stood. I felt really bad and I started to question, "Who am I to deserve such privilege? Where does the strength of these women? And what can I do for them? ". 

CJ: And what was the response? 

AJ: First, I had to understand better what is happening in the world. When filming ended, the United Nations sought to inform me. I was referred to the Commissioner for Refugees and asked them permission to visit, as an observer, the areas considered most critical. When I put the backpack and went to Africa to Bangladesh, to Southeast Asia [the trips took place between 2001 and 2005], I could see what was really happening. I understood that the career I was building would have a much greater significance. 

CJ: You have been appointed by the United Nations Special Envoy of the High Commissioner for Refugees. How is your work? 

I see myself as an eyewitness of what is going on in areas of which the world and the media easily forget: AJ. And I know that is almost impossible to keep the attention of the authorities and vehicles everywhere. That's where I can make a difference, interacting with people in the field, listening to the needs, including obstacles and difficulties. In general, I ask to go through the same situations experienced by local people and support teams. Whenever possible I go alone to watch and listen without interference. Often what they need is to hear: "I am here, I am a human being like you and you are important to me." Then it's up to me to bring these situations to the attention of the United Nations, and do everything possible so that the needs are met. Can I speak with closed presidents or prime ministers and senior secretaries doors. My mission is to make my voice is the voice of all those people.
