Childhood And Education
Actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand welcomed Angelina Jolie Voight into the world at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California, on June 4, 1975. She is the niece of geologist and volcanologist Barry Voight, singer-songwriter Chip Taylor, and actor James Haven's sister. Maximilian Schell and Jacqueline Bisset, both actors, are her godparents. Jolie comes from a Slovak and German ancestry on her father's side. Jolie has stated that her French Canadian mother is the source of her far-off Indigenous (Iroquois) lineage. Jolie's father, however, disputes this, claiming that she is "not seriously Iroquois" and that he and Bertrand made up the claim to make Bertrand appear more "exotic.
She and her brother moved in with their mother when her parents divorced in 1976; the mother had given up acting in order to concentrate on raising her children. Despite not forcing Jolie to attend church, her mother reared her as a Catholic. Though she had a small role in Voight's Lookin' to Get Out (1982) at age seven, she frequently watched movies with her mother as a child, which sparked her interest in acting more than her father's successful profession. The family was relocated to Palisades, New York, when Jolie was six years old by Bertrand and her live-in partner, director Bill Day; they later moved back to Los Angeles.
