Jolie quickly became one of Hollywood's most "in-demand" actresses. Following the success of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" (2005), she was set to earn up to $15 million to star in the film "The Good Shepherd" (2006).

Apart from her acting and humanitarian endeavours, Jolie has worked as a professional model in London, New York and Los Angeles and appeared in numerous music videos, including those of Korn, Meat Loaf, Lenny Kravitz, and The Rolling Stones.
