The couple also adopted three more children from different countries, Maddox from Cambodia, Zahara from Ethiopia and Pax from Vietnam. Jolie loves her family and puts them ahead of everything else in her life. “I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it,” she has said.

She was also previously married to actors Jonny Lee Miller (1996-1999) and Billy Bob Thornton (2000-2003). When she married with Jonny Lee Miller, she wore black leather pants and a white blouse with her husband’s name painted on the back in her own blood.

Despite being awarded numerous awards for her acting work, she gave her mother Marcheline Bertrand, nicknamed, the “Great Lady,” all of them. Her Academy Award, Golden Globe Awards, SAG Awards, and Critic Choice Award.

According to Forbes, Jolie is ranked as one of the highest-paid actresses behind Scarlett Johansson. After starring in the film Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) the movie went on to earn $274.7 million dollars worldwide, which is about $460 million in today’s dollars after adjusting for inflation. The movie was a huge blockbuster success resulting in Jolie quickly becoming one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood.

In 1999, Jolie was was offered an opportunity for the role of the hacker Trinity in The Matrix (1999) however, because of scheduling conflicts she could not audition, eventually Carrie-Anne Moss was cast and made history with the role instead. Despite that not being the only major role that Jolie may have missed out on early in her career, it didn’t matter, because between the years of 2001 and 2011 Jolie earned over $100 million dollars from her movie salaries alone.

The first Lara Croft movie earned her $7 million dollars and she made even more for the second, a reported $12 million dollars for the role of the young adventurer. For Mr. and Mrs. Smith playing alongside her future husband Brad Pitt she earned $20 million dollars, becoming the third actress to join the coveted $20 Million Club (after Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz).

For Good Shepherd and Mighty Heart she earned $10 million dollars for each movie. Jolie was six months pregnant with her daughter Shiloh when she completed filming The Good Shepherd (2006), she also retuned to work 4 months after giving birth to her daughter in order to begin filming A Mighty Heart (2007).

For The Tourist co-starring Johnny Depp, Jolie earned $19 million after replacing Charlize Theron as Elise Clifton-Ward. Jolie earned $20 million dollars for her role as Evelyn Salt in Salt (2010).

It was between 2005 and 2007 when her earnings really began to takeoff, with Forbes magazine estimating her earnings for the year at $20 million in 2007 (likely an underestimation). In 2008, she was ranked #3 in the Forbes “Celebrity 100” list. In 2008/9 she was considered for what eventually became Scarlett Johansson’s role of Natasha Rushman/Black Widow in Iron Man 2 (2010) after Emily Blunt dropped out of the project.

Jolie has also founded her own Production Company called ‘Jolie Pas’ which has produced movies like Unbroken, By the Sea and Maleficent (2014). For Maleficent, Jolie handpicked Lana Del Rey to perform the song “Once Upon a Dream” as the main theme. The movie was a massive success earning $758.5 million dollars globally.

“Maleficent was always so elegant. She always was in control. And to play her was difficult. I worked on my voice a lot. She’s bigger than me. She’s on a different level of performance than I have ever done,” Jolie has said.

Aside from her roles in movies and producing, Jolie also has lucrative endorsement deals. For example, she was paid $12 million dollars in a 3-year deal with clothing brand, St. John. As well as earned a $10 million contract with fashion brand, Louis Vuitton.

Angelina has been able to earn substantial sums of money, in many ways, because there are very few actresses who can do what she has done. Not many actresses necessarily want to hang backwards off a car hood, or indeed, have the legs to pull it off. Jolie has it all and complete with a bad girl personality and real life tattoos to back it up.

On many occasions Jolie has played roles like Elise Clifton Ward in The Tourist (2010), where she was completely presentable and with no rough and ready rebel-like characteristics displayed at all. While in other times she has leaned on them, like when she was playing Sara Wayland in Gone in 60 Seconds (2000) and Evelyn Salt in Salt (2010).

Overall, it is considered that Angelina Jolie has had career earnings of some $340 million dollars. The upward trajectory of Jolie’s career coincided with federal income tax cuts that brought the top tax bracket down from 38.6% to 35% in 2003. As California individual state tax at the time was just 9-10% for the top earners, her taxes would have been around 45% up until 2012 when state taxes increased to over 12%. A year later, federal taxes were increased to 39.6% making her tax rates over 50%.

Of course, Jolie also has had to pay agent and management fees, as well as legal fees, and related expenses. Likely in the region of $24-40 million dollars.

Jolie has invested some of her career earnings into real estate. She has no doubt converted some into other investment assets as well, including stocks and bonds and so on. Jolie purchased a property in Los Feliz, Los Angeles in 2017 for a reported $24.5 million. While it is difficult to speculate her exact returns on her invested capital, especially considering some losses are virtually guaranteed, the market has seen the most substantial gains in history since the 2008 crash. She may have earned some $59-85 million from her investments alone, after deducting the principle and likely losses and fees. However, this is speculation.

In her personal life, Jolie is estimated to have spent $8-14 million dollars of her career earnings. In 2001, she made the largest donation UNHCR had ever received from a private individual at the time; $1 million dollars in response to an international UNHCR emergency appeal.
