There’s Something About Angelina Jolie

There’s Something About Angelina Jolie

“When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers, I kind of wanted to be a vampire.” – Angelina Jolie.

There's Something About Angelina Jolie

This probably explains Angelina Jolie the way she is.  Different. Real. Confident.

Angelina is one of the most beautiful, celebrated and sexy celebrities and I adore her for what she is. She is also probably the most envied actor of all times. At 36, she has it all, an Oscar, a super handsome beau, children, not two but six!  A body and looks to die for, but above all, she has substance.


I always admire women who are substantial, who are weighty and who are mostly what they are. Angelina, as per these aspects, certainly tops the chart. With a slender body, she has accumulated weight with the kind of roles she has done, movies she has produced and directed and the social responsibilities she has taken upon and fulfilled as an UN ambassador.

Here is why most women envy her, but still want to be just like her.

Jolie has a body and looks one would die for, I surely can. Her pouts have been supposedly the best of all.  Her eyes send a chill down your spine and her hair, the dark hair. Many called her evil for breaking the marriage of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, that seemed perfectly happy, but after looking at Angie, one can imagine what must have gone wrong in the marriage. Jolie is beautiful with a well-featured face, puffy lips that have now become the trademark of sexiest lips, dreamy, sexy cat eyes and open, free flowing dark hair.

  • Bounty of Confidence:

Angelina exudes confidence in everything she does. Men do not swoon over her for her body. There are many gorgeous bodies on and off the screen, but it is primarily the confidence that sets them gushing.  She wasn’t always this confident. In her childhood, she was often called extremely skinny and was teased for wearing glasses and braces and this led her into a depressive state so much so that she even harmed herself physically to suppress the pain. She had admitted of sleeping with knives on the bed! But with time and age, she has now become a grown-up who is aware of her beauty and is extremely confident of it too. See her walking in a room or simply sitting pretty at an award function and you know what confidence is all about. She does not appear camera conscious at all. It is this confidence that gets her all the fans from all the corners of the world.

  • Real:

If I have to define “Jolie” in one word, I would call her “real.” In last year’s Golden Globe’s Award Functions, she was sitting with Brad Pitt and the cameras caught her applying lip gloss, but this just shows how real our hottie is. She does not shy away from re-applying a lip gloss at a prestigious award function. She has talked about her childhood inferiorities, her resentment towards her father, her irresponsible behavior with her mom and her sexuality openly because she never pretends.

Over a period of time, in the last few years, Angelina has become a  more responsible and caring person. She attributes these changes to her motherhood and to her companion, Mr. Pitt.

At a young age, with her acting career in full swing, she has also tried her hands at direction with the movie “In the land of blood and honey.” She is also noted for promoting humanitarian causes as a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNHCR.

She has done a lot and learnt a lot in her life so far and she is only going strong by day and by night. No wonder Jennifer Stone said, “Oh Angelina, why you got to be so cool? And is there a class you’ll be teaching I could attend?”

  1. I agree..the depressing n hard times made us more tolerable,mature,n confident.times tests us more or less..those who come out of it, become winners and set examples,for others and for their own personal growth …like jolie…me too had it but still i m very young n have got whole life to see and experience ahead…jolie is HONEST with herself and tht made her strong and confident…i believe those who at some point have some stiffs and problem with thier ‘parents’ ‘families’ tend to mould that way-real,strong,confident bit paranoid..i have seen it…maybe m wrong but thts wht i saw and believe into..GREAT article surbhi…love reading ur articles and expressing my views n reading others views on it…

  2. Very well written article Surabhi and i agree with u she is one hell of a woman so beautiful and confident :yes: :yes: :yes:

  3. I really like reading ur articles, Surabhi… U r one of the few “thinking” women I have come across… I have read some articles on ur blog as well n I love the stuff u write abt.. :yes: :yes: :yes:

    1. Hey Ramya..

      Thank youuuu sooooooo much.. for saying this.

      I am glad you liked the blog and I hope you have become a fan and you would share it with your friends.. 🙂

  4. I saw Lara Croft and was hooked from then on….She is so hot and sultry.She is the only Hlywd actress whose movies I can watch over and over….there is really something about her… Kudos for adopting and her work as UN ambassador…

  5. Angie is like any other hollywood actress beautiful and but had a controversial life.I used to love her for looks and the kind of rebell she is but now i find her okay.Ya she does a lot of charity which is good .
    And the oscar pose was super weired.:D

    1. I’m sorry but I have to disagree. Although I like your writing style and the way you’ve put your opinions about her together.
      She annoys me to no end :/ I think she’s scary, tbh and very, very fake. I also shudder to think what would happen to all the babies if she gets divorced (an inevitability in Hollywood). Slit gowns are classy, yes, but you’re not supposed to literally poke your leg out. Also, she looks very bony and sickly…she needs to eat a sandwich :/

  6. i’ve always been such a HUGE Jenn Anniston fan, thats y i kinda have my reservations about Jolie but still i can not deny that she is elegantly beautiful plus 1 of the best actresses EVER plus soooooooo super hot & an absolute fashion diva & on top of it shes very giving n charitable…!! so one has to admit that she is somethin special…! :methinks:
    ur article is so nicely written! 🙂 spot on! :yes: :yes: :yes:

    1. Hey Nafisa..

      I too feel a lill from Jenny’s end but otherwise she is fab! And thank youuuu for liking the article. I like your tutorials.. I am glad you liked my article.. 🙂

  7. I donno why but I love angelina Jolie 🙂 whenever I feel blahhhh I kinda channel her … hehhehe
    loved the article and love ur blog too. you write from the heart!!! *hugs*

  8. Brilliant article, Surabhi! I always feel half guilty whenever I say that I like Angelina Jolie because people tend to pooh and pah a lot. It’s a bit like admitting to liking Sonam Kapoor (which I do). People just can’t take all that awesomeness in one person, I think. 😛 I’m going to be a proud fangirl now. :inlove: :jaiho:

    1. Oooh! And I forgot to mention! One of my all-time favourite quotes is by her: “People say that you’re going the wrong way when it’s simply a way of your own”. :inlove: 😀

      1. Yeah.. what a quote..!!

        And I loved what you wrote in this comment.. pple cant take that awesomeness in one person and thus tend to start finding some faults. But Angie.. is super hot.. 🙂

  9. I always thinked of her as blaaah :yuck: but then, one day i saw her interview and the way she talked and what she talked… and i am all wow :inlove: so elegant and mature :-*
