Happy Birthday, Angelina Jolie! The ‘Maleficent’ actress has an exciting year ahead of her as she turns 40 — she’ll be filming ‘Salt 2’ and promoting the releases of ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ and ‘By The Sea.’
Angelina Jolie turns 40 years old on Thursday, June 4, and it looks like it’s going to be an exciting year for her! Although Angelina is majorly known as one half of the hottest couple in Hollywood, Brad Pitt‘s wife has also built an astonishing career for herself. And over the next 12 months, she’ll be hard at work on some amazing movies.
Angelina may be another year older, but she still doesn’t look a day over 30! It feels like we were just admiring Angelina’s early work in Girl, Interrupted and Gone In Sixty Seconds, but the actress has come a long way since then. Today, Angelina is an Academy Award winner and a big draw at the box office. Obviously, Angelina has only gotten better with age.
During her 39th year, Angelina didn’t star in a single movie, but she inspired women around the world by removing her ovaries after a cancer scare. “I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt. I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren,” she wrote in an op-ed for the New York Times titled, Angelina Jolie Pitt: Diary of a Surgery.
Although Angelina will “not be able to have more children” biologically, she guaranteed herself a long life, during which she’ll be able to watch her six children grow up. “I will not be able to have any more children, and I expect some physical changes. But I feel at ease with whatever will come, not because I am strong but because this is a part of life. It is nothing to be feared,” she added.
For her 40th year, Angelina has three movies listed on her IMDb page. She’ll film Salt 2, and promote the releases of Kung Fu Panda 3, as well as By The Sea, her first acting collaboration with Brad since 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith. We’re so excited!
