Their parents are successful actors, but will they be? It used to be young actors arrived in Hollywood from faraway places, hoping to make it big with talent and a little bit of luck.

Angelina has had a publicly rocky relationship with her father, Jon Voight, despite efforts to reconcile. Perhaps that's why she reportedly credits her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, with bestowing the acting bug upon her (and those killer genes). Her first leading role in a major film was in Hackers in 1995. Jolie achieved wider fame after her portrayal of video game heroine Lara Croft in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and since then has established herself as one of the best-known and highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. She has had her biggest commercial successes with the action-comedy Mr. & Mrs. Smith and the animated film Kung Fu Panda. see more on Angelina Jolie
