Without Evidence is the second full film that Angelina starred in back in 1995 and it’s a true crime TV movie and she was 19 years old when she filmed it. Her part is smaller and I wouldn’t say the movie is great but I would say that everything with Angelina is worth watching! This movie was filmed before her big part in Hackers which was released in 1995 too. And the rest is history! 😉
In 2008 Angelina met yet a new friend and someone she has quoted to be her favorite director and a huge inspiration – Clint Eastwood. There was several actresses trying to get the part but he wanted Angelina to star in his movie.
Angelina got a Oscar nomination for this part but she unfortunately didn’t win. The movie is based on true stories surrounding a real and horrific case, Wineville Chicken Coop Murders. There is a lot of information about the case to be found online if you want to know more about it.
The movie is well directed and Angelina is sublime as the mother Christine Collins.

The second project Angelina did in 2007 was Beowulf and there was so many rumors about this project when it was filming. Nobody seemed completely sure what it was supposed to be in the beginning. It’s a 3D motion movie and the film was created through a motion capture process similar to the technique director Robert Zemeckis Zemeckis used in The Polar Express (2004).
It received positive reviews from critics when it was released and you should view it if you haven’t, Angelina doesn’t have such a big part and she used a body double for some of the scenes. A lot of good actors was involved in this!
Mariane Pearl is a French freelance journalist. She is the widow of Daniel Pearl, an American journalist who worked for Wall Street Journal. He was kidnapped and murdered by terrorists in Pakistan in early 2002. And in 2003 Mariane Pearl published a memoir, A Mighty Heart about her husband and his life and it’s that book that was adapted to the film with the same name, released in 2007 starring or Angie.
Ever since Mariane and Angelina has been close friends and they have been seen traveling together and hanging out and Mariane has also interviewed Angelina for some magazines.
Besides that the movie also stars Angelinas long time friend (and Maddox Godmother) Jillian Armenante and they became friends when they starred in Girl, Interrupted together in 1999.
