I was also uncomfortable reading this book because it felt like an invasion of Jolie’s privacy. For starters, my inner psychologist wants to scream that psychoanalysis is a rather pessimistic, outmoded therapeutic approach.

She says she relates better to her adopted kids than her biological kids. It becomes clear that Morton really doesn’t like Angelina and just wanted to write the book because he thought she would be a good subject matter.

This book really doesn’t say anything good about Angelina Jolie. Open Preview See a Problem? For the record, I still think she is somewhat of a manipulative bitch There were many more affa I’m surprised by how many people said there was nothing new in this book if you kept up with US Weekly, People, etc.

Angelina Jolie biography by Andrew Morton: I read it so you don’t have to! |

I am only a few years older than Let’s face it – Angelina Jolie is morto freaky, weird chick! Laura Dern was Ang’s babysitter from childhood. May 02, Kate rated it liked it. Andrew Morton’s unauthorized biography of Angelina Jolie describes an abused child, raised to be promiscuous and exhibitionistic by an amibitious, selfish, and cold woman who pushes Jolie to succeed as an unauthlrized in ways that momma Marcheline never could.

It was very sloooow moving in the beginning, too much background about her grandparents.

Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography

According to this unauthorized bio, which apparently offers no sources–Marcheline was the epitome of a stage mom who remained bitter about her abandonment by Jon Voight for her entire life, and succeeded in turning both her children unakthorized their father.

After reading that I went on to read that Angelina and this boyfriend used to cut each other with knives during “the act” and she had to be admitted to the hospital because their cutting during “it” narrowly missed her jugular and only then her mother decided a live-in boyfriend for her teenager wasn’t a good idea?


Move on to her next marriage to weird Billy Bob who we all know wore a vial of Angie’s blood while she wore one of his and her gave her a pet rat for a wedding present. I did find the book jumping around a little bit so it was difficult to read at times. The author covered her movie career and her relationships, her charity work and her travels, her adoptions and the strange ambivalence she sometimes seems to have toward her own biological children.

If you are after a tabloid style biography with some salacious details and narrowed insight of her troubled youth it is an enjoyable read. I did find the chapters about Angelina’s parents very interesting, particularly her mother’s odd relationship with Al Pacino and her attempts to marry off her daughter to Mick Jagger. So I got this book from the library, I would never buy something like this!

You’d think the “odd” part of the family would be the Voight side, Hollywood and all, when actually it was her mother’s family who thought they were above all. Morton even went so far as to say, at one point, that though Angelina herself didn’t realize this was why, but here was the reason she was doing a certain thing.

The author speculates and uses expert psychiatrists to determine Angelina behavious. First off I’ll say I didn’t like Angelina Jolie prior to reading this and I probably like her even less after reading this. I remain perplexed by the alternating character between good and evil and question her actual motives for the charity work she pursues, however admit to huge respect for her financial and personal sacrifices to social justice nonetheless.

But the faster it seems to move, the harder it is to put down. Not really sure how to “review” this book. In fact, by the end of the book, I’m pretty sure he dislikes her wholly.

What was really going on in her brief, impulsive marriages to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, and what is mkrton on in her partnership with Brad Pitt? Is she worth it? An Unauthorized Biography ; of these I have read Madonna which is unauthoeized enjoyable! Perhaps some more orphans to adopt.

Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography by Andrew Morton

This woman has major mental problems. Listened to the audio version. Angelina is full of Hollywood gossip and definitely provides insight into the lives of high-profile unauthorjzed.

If only a small part of it is true, she’s lived an amazingly unusual life and will probably continue to attract public attention. Tatt So-so as far as the celeb tell-all genre goes.


Morton asserts that for more than a year, the infant Jolie lived in a bare, all white room cared for by an assortment of babysitters, one of whom provided this information. In the end, you feel sorry for Jolie as Morton really doesn’t give her any credit throughout the book and shws no empathy to her.

Oct 16, Bridget Bailey rated it it was ok. She has adopted three kids from questionable sources. The tagline refers to the new thriller, “Salt,” about a CIA agent suspected of being a Russian spy the movie has an identity crisis of its own, the main character was originally cast as a male.

Refresh and try again. I didn’t enjoy that aspect of it but it was interesting to learn things about Angelina This is the first biography I have read about anyone famous. Billy Bob Thornton a trip to the mental hospital.

Then it asks the person to go out and basically fake it, so that eventually there is no distinction between faking the behavior and just doing it. This biography certainly provides such insight into Angelina’s life, though of course not the deep internal thoughts of unautthorized autobiography.

One thing I didn’t realize before reading this biography was how acclaimed and respected she is as an actress. The photos alone would be worth the price of this book.

And then there’s the fireball of fame that is “Brangelina” — which Morton suggests was at least sparked, if not fully kindled, while Pitt was married to “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston. There were two big problems with this book: He trots out various “psychoanalysts” who have “never treated Angelina or her family” who, in effect, diagnose her.
