There is no question about it, Angelina Jolie is one of the most famous actors in the world, no matter what gender we are talking about. The star of massive movies like Gone in 60 Seconds, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Beowulf, Salt and Maleficent to name just a few, her work has packed millions of people into movie theaters. While the fact that she has won an Academy Award, on top of being nominated for another, is proof positive that she has real acting chops, we’d be lying if we tried to pretend her looks didn’t play a part in her appeal. Someone who seems to ooze sexiness from her every pore, her sultry looks and public penchant for highly sexual relationships has made her a go-to crush for a lot of people, of both the male and female persuasion.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that she has had her photo taken an awful lot over the years and there are legions of people who anticipate more images of the world famous actress. While we love many recent photos of Angelina, when putting together this list we decided it would be more interesting to feature images from her past in an effort to introduce some or remind others of them.
In order for a photo to be considered for this list, it needs to have been taken in the year 2010 or earlier. Angelina turned thirty- five that year and this list is focused on photos of her at an early age so we’re making that our cut-off. We are also open to screengrabs from her work as an actress, as in many cases images of actors working become their longest-lasting looks in the pop culture world.
15. Captivating Rolling Stone Cover
The first of many magazine covers that you will find after this, it is obvious to us why Angelina has been used time and time again to sell a variety of issues. We may not be sure what exactly to make of the look on her face but we do know enough about ourselves to realize that it has us absolutely captivated. Wearing a top that looks beaded, it immediately has us staring at it but that took a turn quickly as we found ourselves peering at her cleavage. Far less revealing than some of the images you are about to see in this piece, the small amount of her breasts that is visible looks pretty much perfect and inviting.
14. Skin Tight Bodysuit
This is the first of three entries on this list that include Angie from times in which she was playing Lara Croft, which is a great testament to the amazing shape she got herself into for the role. Sporting a skin tight bodysuit, it was hard for us to put words together for this entry as our minds want to lapse into some kind of lust-filled haze. If there was ever a body that was better built for lycra we can’t think of it. It is especially hard to think of other women right now as we are perfectly happy looking at Angie’s figure right here. A still released in support of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life hitting theaters, the promotional team knew exactly what they were doing as this would inspire us to go wherever we had to see more.
13. Getting Comfortable
If you are anything like us you probably have zero recollection of a magazine called Talk existing in the year 2000, but since this came from it, we are happy it did. Featuring the actress clutching a glass of wine and sporting a satisfied and at peace look on her face, it seems as though at this exact moment she had no concern about looking good and was just happy and relaxed. If our suspicions are true, then she must have been pleasantly surprised by the outcome as it resulted in one heck of an arousing image. If only we could be the hand that is grazing her chest for only the briefest of moments as it would be a limited but happy existence to say the least.
12. Tight Shirt
Probably the most innocent looking photo you will find here if we didn’t know that this 1996 photo was taken as part of a photoshoot by Steve Smith, we could have been fooled that this was a candid. Looking like Angelina could have just been lounging about some kind of country home and having a good time with her friends, the smile on her face looks entirely sincere and welcoming. Feeling almost as if we just happen to be flies on a wall viewing her in her natural state, it is impossible to ignore the way her top clings to her flesh. Giving a really good idea of what exactly she is working with under that piece of clothing, a cursory Google search may find plenty of topless photos of her but we can say that in some ways this is actually more attractive.
11. Eyes, Lips, Cleavage
The year in which Ms. Jolie turned nineteen, you can definitely tell by looking at her face in this photo that she is younger here than anywhere else on this list. Looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, her age is not the only thing that is remarkable about her face here as her bright red lips draw the attention to one of the most discussed aspects of the actress. Of course, the way in which she is using her arm as a stand in for a push-up bra ensured that her bountiful bosoms are just shy of being fully visible which anyone looking at them has to be able to appreciate. If you need any other explanation as to why this photo practically demanded a place among the elite Angelina photos, then we’re baffled by your tastes.
10. Satin Esquire Cover
The first of two Esquire Magazine covers that made this list, it is safe to say that we are a big fan of what happens when these two entities come together to produce photos. The most recent image we included by a considerable margin, it was published as part of the July 2007 issue and is also the simplest photo you’ll find here. Just the actress seemingly in the nude with a silver sheet draped over her body, it is amazing how such a singular vision can result in one of our favorite feasts for the eyes. If you are anything like us, the fact that there was only a thin piece of fabric between her alluring body and the camera’s lens has our minds going a mile a minute and our lips smiling. But we are not complaining.
9. Sultry GQ Cover
A GQ Magazine cover from 2004, there is something entirely different about this photo than the rest of the ones that will follow it here. Looking as close to a classic movie siren as we’ve ever seen her, she brings her trademark sexiness to a type of photo that is a callback to a time we think of as being more innocent. Showing off her glorious curves, her cleavage has barely ever looked better and the hint of her pantyhose and exposed leg are enough to inspire salivation. However, in our minds, there is little questioning that it is the sultry look on the actress’s face that it is most captivating. Looking like she has more makeup on her face than what we are used to her wearing, it manages to not overwhelm while drawing attention to her every facial feature.
8. Lara Beckons
An earlier entry focused on a promotional still that was meant to convince people to check out the second Tomb Raider film but years earlier the first film outdid it. A photo used to get the average person’s tongue wagging in appreciation, if this was our first introduction to Angelina’s version of Lara Croft we would be instant devotees. Giving us a view of her rear end, something that we are able to see far too rarely, it proves that she had it going on. Also offering up a side vantage of her boobs, being able to chart their rise and fall so easily will likely put a smile on the face of the sourest of people. Finally, the come hither nature of her face and finger is the perfect spice to add in order to make this photo an amazing blend of everything that makes her hot as hell.
7. Mrs. Smith
A movie that was dogged by rumors and controversy before it came out due to the off-screen relationship between its stars, Mr. & Mrs. Smith served up a bevy of unforgettable moments. Filled to the brim with sexual tension between its two leads, the movie added to the fame of them both in no small part because of the energy they infused it with. Bucking the trend of this list, this time around Angelina Jolie’s body is barely visible to the viewer and it is instead the situation that makes this so exciting and appealing. Clad only in the shirt of her lover, it is the idea that she just finished getting busy that gets us going here. How could Brad ever resist her?
6. Clutching The Headboard
There is always something intimate about someone in a bed. The place where we all go to sleep, for a lot of people it is the place where they allow their true selves to show through and drop the pretenses they walk around with the rest of the day. Of course, there is also the fact that a lot of us use it as the location where we get busy far more than any other, so there is also something sexual about them, especially when there is an attractive woman on one. Case in point, this photo of Angelina taken by Jeff Dumas all the way back in 1996 has to be one of the best things we’ve ever seen her do and yes, we’re including her many film roles in that. There is just something so great about it that it is impossible to deny and we can’t think of any reason why you would want to. It has to be said too, we know that bedspread is inanimate but it should count its lucky stars that it had such an amazing chest pressed into it. Way better than a typical old iron, that’s for sure.
5. Wet Esquire Cover
The Esquire Magazine cover from the November of 2004 issue, we can definitely attest to the fact that our attention would be instantly grabbed if we walked past it on the newsstand. Already a huge star by this point in her career, our star was in an incredible five movies the year this came out and judging by the way she looks here, it seems likely to be impossible to become sick of her. Shown with water cascading down her her tight body, it makes you imagine getting as close to her supple skin as the fluid is allowed to. Additionally, the water lends her body a glisten that forces you to look at every crevasse, not that we’re complaining. Finally, our favorite aspect has to be the glimpse of her sparkling cleavage that is always a sight for sore eyes.
Certainly, one of the most striking photo compositions you will find on this list, there is a beauty in what you are beholding that has nothing to do with the person that is in the frame. Between the elegant dress, mirror, and the wet slicked back hair, it almost is enough to make you pay less attention to the incredible body that Angelina possesses. Well, almost, but not quite. Clearly wearing nothing underneath that small bit of fabric, there is very little left to the imagination in this George Holtz snap taken in 1998. Of course, the part of the photo, and of her body, that instantly grabs the viewer’s attention is the perfect angle that we get of the side of her partially exposed breast. The added ability to make out the small freckles on her torso gives off a perfect feeling of intimacy that you are likely to never get again with a star of her caliber.
3. Lara Croft Bikini
This may be the exact moment where Angelina’s body was perfected. Looking like she is in tip top shape, she still looks curvy, which is hotter to us than when she would go on to lose too much weight and look far too skeletal. Another promotional still used to support Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, this time she has traded in the bodysuit in favor of a bikini. Showing off a great deal of her flesh, she looks like a very capable character here while remaining absolutely stunning. The movie may have been her final foray as Lara but if the film came close to living up to this one moment, the franchise never should have come to an end.
2. Rear View
A photo taken by Marcel Indik in 1995, it was one of many that were snapped at the time but in our minds, it was by far the sexiest. The year in which Angie turned only twenty-five, the lustful look of confidence on her face certainly makes it look like she was far more experienced than a lot of women her age, that, or she was good at faking it. Released in the same time period that the movie Hackers would have first introduced her to a lot of people who were previously unaware of her, if she wasn’t famous at the time, this would have helped. Shown completely topless from behind, we’re given a great view of her statuesque back and of course her trio of tattoos, including two tramp stamps. However, as fantastic as that is, there is no question that it is the hint of both side and underboob that is on display that really gets the heart racing in all the best ways.
An underseen and unfortunately underappreciated film, Gia was a TV movie released by HBO in 1998 that Angelina Jolie starred in and featured some of her best work to date. Playing one of the first supermodels, Gia Carangi, she was a sexually free woman who fell madly in love with a woman named Linda, played by Elizabeth Mitchell in the film. Taking part in an unforgettable intimate scene together in the movie, this image is a single moment from it and it is charged with so much energy it was impossible for us to refuse. In the midst of having her lover passionately kiss her neck, the look of pleasure on Angelina’s face is the stuff of legend and merits the number one spot on our list.
