Happy birthday, Angelina! The stunning actress, director and author turned 39 on June 4, and to celebrate her special day, we’re taking a look back at her amazing year in pictures!
Angelina Jolie has accomplished so much over the past year! She gave a critically acclaimed, chilling performance as the titular character in the much-buzzed about Maleficent, announced plans to star opposite husband Brad Pitt, 50, in a new indie movie that she wrote, and helped her children Pax, 10, and Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 5, make their big screen debut in Maleficent.

Angelina Jolie Birthday — ‘Maleficent’ Actress Turns 39
Angelina has so much to celebrate from this past year! First of all, she returned to the screen for the first time in three and a half years in the highly anticipated Maleficent — and it was awesome!
Angelina has also continued her considerable charity work, speaking at both a G8 foreign ministers meeting and the UN security council in 2013. In November, 2013, she was celebrated for her generous efforts, receiving an honorary Academy Award, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, from the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Angelina also has a lot to look forward to this year. She’s set to direct a Joel and Ethan Coen film based on Laura Hillenbrand‘s best-selling biography Unbroken, about World War II hero Lou Zamperini. Plus, she has written an “experimental” movie in which she and Brad will co-star — and she couldn’t be more excited about it!
“I really can’t say very much,” Angie told Extra on May 20. “Except that it’s not a big movie, it’s not an action movie. It’s the kind of movie we both love but we aren’t often cast in. It’s a very experimental, independent-type film where we get to just be actors together and be really raw and open and try things.”
Here’s to Angelina having another awesome year!
