Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"I like to collect knives," says Angelina Jolie, "but I also collect first edition books." At first glance, she might seem to be someone without any secrets, talking openly about her love life, sexual preferences, drug use, cutting, and tattoos--and why she kissed her brother on the lips in public. And yet mysteries remain: What was really going on in her brief, impulsive marriages to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, and what "is" going on in her partnership with Brad Pitt? What's behind the oft-reported feud with her father, the Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight? What drove her to become a mother of six children in six years? And--perhaps most puzzling of all--what about the other side of Angelina: How did this talented but troubled young actress, barely 35 years old, become a respected Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations as well as the "most powerful celebrity in the world" (unseating Oprah Winfrey) on "Forbes'" 2009 Celebrity 100 list?

The answers that Andrew Morton has uncovered are astonishing, taking us deep inside Angelina's world to show us what shaped her as a child, as an actress, and as a woman struggling to overcome personal demons that have never before been revealed. In this spellbinding biography, Andrew Morton draws upon far-reaching original interviews and research, accompanied by exclusive private photographs, to show us the true story behind both the wild excesses of Angelina's youth and her remarkable work with children and victims of poverty and disaster today.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-11-15)

The subject of No. 1 New York Times best-selling celebrity biographer Morton's latest book is Oscar Award-winning superstar Angelina Jolie. Unauthorized but seemingly well researched, it covers all the bases of her life to date, including growing up in a broken home; her estrangement from her father, actor Jon Voight; her drug addictions; her highly publicized romantic relationships; her humanitarian work; and marriage and motherhood with Brad Pitt. Morton's narrative is peppered with quotes from friends and other unnamed sources as well as "experts" who delve into Jolie's psychological makeup. Actor/Audie Award winner Bronson Pinchot's narration is smooth, low-key, and nicely paced. This will be a popular choice for biography collections.
