Angelina Jolie is a global citizen in more ways than one. The Hollywood icon has long been active in humanitarian efforts worldwide and was even a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Refugee Agency. She has adopted children from Cambodia, Ethiopia, and Vietnam, and has traveled around the globe to advocate for the rights of families who have had to flee their homes in Iraq, Thailand, Sierra Leone, and other nations. Jolie has also owned properties all around the world, including in son Maddox’s native Cambodia and in the south of France, where she and ex Brad Pitt previously co-owned a winery, Chateau Miraval. The native Angeleno has also owned a handful of residences scattered throughout the States, as well as several notable rental properties that the actor and her brood lived in while she or Pitt were filming in locales like London and Long Island, New York. Here, we’re sharing a glimpse inside some of her more well-known homes.
Jolie had already made a name for herself in Hollywood with 1999’s hit Girl, Interrupted when she married Billy Bob Thornton in May 2000. Several months later, they paid $3.75 million for an 11,000-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills that previously belonged to Guns N’ Roses’s Slash. “We’re kind of spontaneous people,” Thornton told Entertainment Weekly at the time. “We saw this house and it was like, ‘Okay, we’ll take that one.’” The sprawling residence included nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, an in-home recording studio, a library, a gym, a pool, and a tennis court. According to Thornton, one of Jolie’s favorite features was that there was a kitchen in the bedroom. “You can watch TV [in bed] all day, then walk three feet to the kitchen,” he said. The pair divorced after three years, and Thornton eventually sold the house nearly a decade later for $8 million.
