Angelina Jolie is the most admired woman in the world

Bill Gates and Angelina Jolie remain the most admired man and woman in the world, with the Obamas taking the second place spots in YouGov’s latest annual study

Bill Gates and Angelina Jolie are once again the world’s most admired man and woman in YouGov’s annual study of which public figures the people of our planet look up to.

Tech pioneer and philanthropist Gates has topped the list every time YouGov has conducted the survey, while Jolie has also come first in each of the three surveys since 2015 when separate male and female categories were introduced.

This year, the study expanded to cover the views of people in 35 countries – the most ever – and means that YouGov interviewed more than 37,000 people to compile the list.

Entertainers dominate the female top twenty, with 14 of the most admired women being actresses, singers or TV presenters (although some, like Emma Watson and Angelina Jolie, are also notable for their humanitarian work). By contrast, the list of most admired men contains more people from political, business and sporting backgrounds.

Raising Smart, Well-Rounded Children Like Angelina Has Done

Angelina Jolie is one of the world’s most famous mothers. Not only is she an international superstar, but she’s also a mother who has a wonderful family made up of a combination of biological and adopted children.

Over the past two years, Angelina has been in the media spotlight a lot, thanks to her impending divorce from Brad Pitt, the father of her six children – Vivienne, Pax, Maddox, Shiloh, Zahara, and Knox. However, in that time, what has become apparent is how well she has raised her children.

Although still young, Jolie’s kids are incredibly well behaved and well-rounded. They’re in the media spotlight a lot, and always appear to be impeccable young people. Following their parents’ separation, the Jolie-Pitt kids have publicly supported their mother at all manner of events.

In September 2017, Jolie told people: “We all have our difficult times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids. They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that.”

The Jolie-Pitt kids are all well-rounded people, but what has made them this way? They have grown up leading a privileged life, so what is it that has made them so grounded, and wise beyond their years?

In memory of Marcheline Bertrand

In memory of Marcheline Bertrand

Today we remember Angelina’s mother Marcheline Bertrand who Angelina loved deeply and cared so much about. Angelina has mentioned her mother in many interviews and haven’t had anything but kind things to say about her. She also decided to se her movie By the Sea in the 70’s because her mother loved that movie-era and she named the characters Vanessa and Roland Bertrand.

My mother was a full-time mother. She didn’t have much of her own career, her own life, her own experiences… everything was for her children. I will never be as good a mother as she was. She was just grace incarnate. She was the most generous, loving – she’s better than me. /Angelina Jolie

Here is a fanmade video to remember Marcheline by and a video with several clips of Angelina speaking about her mother:

Interview with Jon Voight, mentioning Angie

A new interview with Angelina’s dad Jon Voight were he mentions Angie and her new film First They Killed My Fahter. You can read full interview here!

Jon Voight is a veteran actor whose career has spanned decades and extended to awards wins in the form of an Academy Award and multiple Golden Globes. Having starred in a variety of roles, the father of Angelina Jolie now takes on what is a rather personal and warming role as Gus in the heartwarming drama, Surviving The Wild. We spoke with the actor about the movie, the emerging young star he works alongside and what awards season movies have caught his attention…

Away from the film, it’s obviously awards season at the moment and as an actor who was won an Academy Award and copious Golden Globes, do you still keep an eye on those films being tipped for success? And are there are any specific films you are drawn to this year?

Sure I do. One of the films that deeply impressed me is the film of my daughter [Angelina Jolie] called First They Killed My Father. It’s a film done completely in the Cambodian language and the story is very compelling, and the acting is spectacular. I have a great love for that and I’m glad it’s getting some attention. I also thought The Florida Project was quite remarkable and it’s great that it is getting so much attentions. It’s an exciting time of year as it puts focus on excellence.

Angelina to be Honored by American Society of Cinematographers

A big congratulation to our Angie who will receive the “ASC Board of Governors Award” from The American Society of Cinematographers! Hopefully Angelina will attend the show which will be on February 17.

The American Society of Cinematographers has selected Angelina Jolie as the recipient of its 2018 ASC Board of Governors Award.

The presentation will be made at the 32nd annual ASC Awards for Outstanding Achievement on Feb. 17 at Hollywood & Highland’s Ray Dolby Ballroom.

The ASC Board of Governors Award is given to individuals in the industry whose body of work has made “significant and indelible contributions to cinema.” It is the only ASC Award not given to a cinematographer, and is reserved for filmmakers who have been champions for directors of photography and the visual art form.

“Angelina Jolie sets a high standard,” ASC president Kees van Oostrum said. “She is a true artist, with a strong vision and collaborative spirit. She has also entertained us through her work, but more importantly has brought significant social issues to our attention. For her wide-ranging accomplishments, we are honored to present her with our Board of Governors Award.”

Previous recipients of the ASC Board of Governors Award include Ridley Scott, Barbra Streisand, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Christopher Nolan, Warren Beatty, Francis Ford Coppola, Sally Field, Morgan Freeman, Ron Howard, Sydney Pollack, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg.

Jolie won Golden Globe awards for her roles in “George Wallace” in 1997 and “Gia” in 1998. The latter also earned her a SAG award. She won an Academy Award for best supporting actress in 1999 for James Mangold’s “Girl, Interrupted.” Her film credits include “Maleficent,” Clint Eastwood’s “Changeling,” Michael Winterbottom’s “A Mighty Heart,” the action-adventure “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” and Martin Campbell’s “Beyond Borders,” in which she played a United Nations relief worker.

Jolie made her feature-film directorial debut with 2011’s “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” and directed and produced “Unbroken” in 2014. She also directed, produced, and wrote “By the Sea” and executive produced the animated feature film “The Breadwinner.” For her fourth feature as a director, Jolie took on “First They Killed My Father,” currently streaming on Netflix. The film has earned BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations.

In addition to her work as a filmmaker, Jolie is special envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, and a visiting professor in practice at the Centre for Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
