Regarded as one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood, Angelina Jolie has had an interesting career where she has definitely flourished. What makes Jolie an incredible celebrity is that she is not just concerned about her career and her life, but her humanitarian side illustrates how generous she is. Even though she made her acting debut as a child by starring in the 1982 film Lookin’ To Get Out, her name became popular only after she landed her first leading role in the 1995 film Hackers.

Following her break-out role, Jolie did not step back, and instead, she ensured that she thrived in almost every role she undertook since then. Here are some of her best performances throughout her career.

Even though this action film by Simon West received mixed reviews, it definitely showed that Jolie can take up any role and amp it up. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is based on the video game of the same name. The film, overall, did not receive much positive feedback. Rotten tomatoes gave the film 20% in its tomatometer, but still goes on to praise Jolie, saying “Angelina Jolie is perfect for the role of Lara Croft, but even she can’t save the movie.”

Based on Mariane Pearl’s memoir by the same name, this 2007 drama film focuses on the real-life story of the kidnapping and the murdering of Daniel Pearl. Jolie takes over the role of Mariane Pearl and illustrates her intense efforts in trying to find her husband while digging deep into the reasons behind Danny’s journey to Karachchi, Pakistan. A Mighty Heart is definitely one of Jolie’s most phenomenal performances as, unlike her other roles, this particular role focuses on the emotional aspects of the character. Thus, heavy reliance was given to the delivery of Mariane’s pain and trauma, which Jolie has perfectly captured.

Wanted is a film by Timur Bekmambetov that is loosely based on the comic book miniseries of the same name. The story follows Wesley Gibson, played by James McAvoy, as he is recruited to a team of assassins called the Fraternity, under a false identity. Jolie takes on the role of Fox, Gibson’s mentor, who turns against him, but also ends up helping him. This, of course, is another film that illustrates Jolie’s ability to thrive in the action film genre. There have been debates over whether Wesley Gibson will return in a sequel to the film. Perhaps, bringing back Fox alongside Gibson’s character might fire up the possible-sequel even more.
