KUNG FU PANDA 2

Academy Award® and three-time Golden Globe winner ANGELINA JOLIE (Tigress) continues to be one of Hollywood's most talented leading actresses.

Most recently, Jolie starred for Academy Award®-winning director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck opposite Johnny Depp in "The Tourist,” for which she received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress. Also last year, she starred in the blockbuster thriller "Salt” for director Philip Noyce. Prior to that, Jolie starred in Clint Eastwood's acclaimed film "Changeling,” for which she received an Academy Award® nomination for Best Actress, as well as nominations from the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Broadcast Film Critics, London Film Critics and Chicago Film Critics.

Jolie also starred in the 2008 box office hits "Wanted,” the fantasy-thriller directed by Timur Bekmambetov, and DreamWorks Animation's "Kung Fu Panda,” opposite Jack Black. In 2007, she starred in Robert Zemeckis' "Beowulf” and Michael Winterbottom's critically acclaimed "A Mighty Heart,” the dramatic true story of Mariane and Daniel Pearl.

Jolie's performance in "A Mighty Heart” earned her nominations from the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Broadcast Film Critics and Film Independent's Spirit Awards.

Jolie's previous films include "The Good Shepard,” directed by Robert De Niro and co-starring Matt Damon; "Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” co-starring Brad Pitt; and "Alexander,” directed by Oliver Stone and co-starring Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins. In 2003, she played the lead role in the action-adventure "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life,” the sequel to director Simon West's 2001 box-office smash "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” and portrayed a relief worker for the United Nations in the provocative drama "Beyond Borders.”

Jolie's portrayal of a mental patient in "Girl, Interrupted” garnered her an Academy Award®, her third Golden Globe Award, a Broadcast Film Critics Association Award, ShoWest's Supporting Actress of the Year Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role. The HBO film "Gia” earned Jolie critical praise as well as a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award and an Emmy nomination for her portrayal of supermodel Gia Carangi, who died of AIDS.

Jolie has also received wide recognition for her humanitarian work. She was the first recipient of the Citizen of the World Award from the United Nations Correspondents Association, as well as the Global Humanitarian Action Award in 2005. In February 2007, Jolie was accepted by the bipartisan think tank Council on Foreign Relations for a special five-year term designed to nurture the next generation of foreign-policy makers.

Jolie is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). She helped push through the Unaccompanied Alien Child Protection Act and founded the National Center for Refugee and Immigrant Children, an organization that provides free legal aid to asylum-seeking children.
