Angelina Jolie Net Worth: $160 Million
Angelina Jolie has made her net worth by acting in both movies and television, producing, directing, as well as screenwriting. She has appeared in over twenty movies including hits such as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and Maleficent. She has been the voice of Master Tigress in all three Kung Fu Panda films.
In addition to acting, Angelina Jolie has also earned her net worth by producing and directing movies such as Unbroken and In the Land of Blood and Honey, which she also was the screenwriter for.
But despite her busy career Angelina also gives back. She has been a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Goodwill Ambassador since 2001. She has since been on over fourty missions to over thirty different countries to help raise awareness. In 2012, Angelina was promoted to Special Envoy to High Commissioner António Guterres. This new position with UNHCR allowed her to represent Mr. Guterres and the UNHCR at the diplomatic level.
In 2003, Angelina puchased almost 150,000 acres of land in Cambodia which she turned into a wildlife reserve, called Maddox Jolie Pitt Foundation, named for her son Maddox, whose country of origin is Cambodia. As a result of her contribution to the conservation of endangered species in Cambodia, she was given Cambodian citizenship in 2005.
Angelina, along with now husband Brad Pitt, established the Shiloh Jolie Pitt Foundation in 2010 to aid in conservation in Africa.
Angelina did not stop there. She has worked hard to help children. Since 2008, she has co-chaired Kids in Need of Defense (KIND). KIND provides pro bono attorneys to immigrant children throughout the immigration process. She has also been the co-chair for the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict since 2007.
