Angelina Jolie has good looks, talent and a lot of money. Jolie is the only woman among the 10 highest paid actors, reported TheCelebrityCafe.com on Feb. 22, 2014. Sources say Jolie earned $33 million in 2013. Describing Jolie's worth, Forbes says, "Jolie is the only woman making bank for playing action heroes.

"Salt", which was originally written for Tom Cruise, brought in $300 million on a budget of $110 million. Her
other movie from 2010, "The Tourist", earned 75 percent of its $280 million box office overseas," reports
India Today. Clearly, Jolie, who is also on many lists of the most beautiful women in the world, has a way of making movies a better investment than gold or diamonds.

All of this wealth and fame has not stood in the way of Jolie's humanitarian zeal. She is a devoted humanitarian who was made a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency in 2001, reports Bio.com.
Jolie has hit the headlines for her work to help get aid for refugees in Cambodia, Darfur and Jordan, and other places worldwide. In 2005 she was awarded the Global Humanitarian Action Award from the United Nations Association of the USA for her activism on behalf of refugee rights. Jolie sure is one magnificent actress and person.
