I have really enjoyed Angelina’s work. She broke down barriers for women in Hollywood as the first leading female action star in LARA CROFT: Tomb Raider. She’s done an A1 job of a wide variety of roles and I was quite impressed at how she nailed the challenging task of playing the mother in CHANGELING.

More than that, she has used her fame as a beacon of goodwill in her various roles as Ambassador and Spokesperson. She started doing it when it was not a popular thing to do. In my opinion, she was a leader in Hollywood on this front as well. Kudos to you Angelina. Keep shining. We all need your light!
