In only a few short years ANGELINA JOLIE (Sara "Sway" Wayland) has become one of Hollywood's most respected young actresses. Having recently earned a third Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and an OscarĀ® for Best Supporting Actress for her moving performance as Lisa Rowe in "Girl Interrupted," she has also become one of the most sought-after actresses in the entertainment industry.

She also starred opposite Denzel Washington in the dramatic thriller "The Bone Collector," for director Phillip Noyce. Other film credits include "Pushing Tin" costarring Billy Bob Thornton and John Cusack, "Playing by Heart" (for which she won the National Board of Review Award for Breakthrough Performance) with Sean Connery, Gena Rowlands, Madeleine Stowe, and Dennis Quaid, and "Playing God," costarring David Duchovny and Timothy Hutton. Jolie's earlier films included appearances in "Foxfire" and "Hackers."

Jolie earned critical praise for the HBO film "Gia," written and directed by Michael Cristofer. She received a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award as well as garnering an Emmy nomination for her poignant portrayal of supermodel Gia Carangi, who died of AIDS. She won the Golden Globe and a Cable Ace Award, plus another Emmy Award nomination for her role as Cornelia Wallace, the second wife of the controversial Alabama governor, in John Frankenheimer's "George Wallace," opposite Gary Sinise. She also starred in the Hallmark Hall of Fame miniseries "True Women," based on Janice Woods Windle's best-selling historical novel.

A member of the famed MET Theatre Ensemble Workshop, Jolie trained at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and has also studied with Jan Tarrant in New York and Silvana Gallardo in Los Angeles. She is actively workshopping playwright John Ford Noonan's "Music from Down the Hill," in which she will star for director Tom Bower.

Jolie still drives her first car, a Ford pickup, but the young actress has her eye on a Stingray.
