Angelina Jolie Net Worth: After Preventive Surgery, How Much Is Brad Pitt’s Wife Worth?

Though known only as Jon Voight's very beautiful daughter at the beginning of her career, Angelina Jolie's net worth has nothing to do with her Oscar-winning father, as the "Tomb Raider" star is one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood - and, occasionally, also one of the most controversial.

An Oscar winner and multiple nominee in her own right, Angelina Jolie's net worth is the fruit of twenty years of hard work, since her breakout role in the cyber thriller "Hacker" in 1995 and later on her films "Gia" and, most importantly, her Oscar-winning turn as a mental hospital patient in "Girl, Interrupted."

Over the past few years, however, it hasn't been Angelina Jolie's net worth making news for the actress and director, but rather her personal life and choices: first, her widely publicized marriage to "Armageddon" actor Billy Bob Thornton and, later, her relationship with Brad Pitt, a scandal at the time of its birth as it was said the actor had left "Friends" then-wife Jennifer Aniston for Jolie.

It's been more than ten years since the "Maleficent" star met Pitt, and they've had six children together since then, while both Brad's and Angelina Jolie's net worth has risen considerably as they have both taken on new challenges: Pitt recently won an Oscar for producing the Best Picture winner "12 Years a Slave," while 2014 saw Jolie make her directorial debut in "Unbroken."

A few weeks back, Jolie made headlines over completely different reasons as she explained in a New York Times op-ed that, in spite of how high Angelina Jolie's net worth is, she's still victim of a faulty gene that makes her more prone to get different types of cancer - which prompted her to undergo a series of preventive cancer surgeries such as a double mastectomy a few years back and a hysterectomy recently.

She's also widely known for her philanthropy efforts and her strong stand on international politics, which include a recent appearance in the United Nations headquarters in New York to speak about Syria, according to CBC.

Currently, Celebrity Net Worth lists Angelina Jolie's net worth at $145 million.
