Happy 39th birthday Angelina Jolie! We've seen lots of our Angie over the past few weeks as she has been promoting Maleficent. How did the star become the humanitarian and slinky Saint Laurent wearer that she is today? To celebrate her big day, here's our ode to Angie with her most memorable moments so far...

angelina jolie, premiere, birthday, 38

1982 - Angelina's first film role

Her love for the silver screen began way back when she was an adorable seven-year-old and bagged a small part in Lookin' to Get Out.

1986 - Angie's first trip to the Oscars

N'aww! Angelina went to the Oscar Awards with daddy Jon Voight when she was just 11 years old and opted to wear white lace with no right leg in sight.

1994 - The modelling years

At 19 years old, the sultry seductress was born. This saucy shot comes from one of her first ever modelling shoots.

1996 - Mariage number one

Angelina was married to Jonny Lee Miller from 1996 to 1999 after meeting on the set of Hackers. She famously walked up the aisle in skintight rubber trousers with Jonny’s name written across her white T shirt in her own blood.

1999 - Her role in Girl, Interrupted wowed the world

Although the film was hoped to be Winona Ryder's comeback, it instead marked Angelina's final breakthrough in Hollywood.

2000 - She wore Billy Bob Thornton's blood around her neck

Billy Bob was the next lucky man to become Mr Jolie. They tied the knot in 2000 and got matching tattoos. Oh, and exchanged vials of each other’s blood.

2000 - She won her first Oscar Award

Angelina scored an Oscar in 2000 for Girl Interrupted before, err, smooching her brother. That's certainly one way of celebrating!

2001 - Hello Lara Croft!

Who better to play the curvilious subject of all male sexual fantasies than Ange? We loved her fierce Tomb Raiding ways and the role made her an international superstar.

2001 - Angelina, the humanitarian

In February 2001, Angelina went on her first field visit to Sierra Leone and Tanzania and later that year became a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador at UNHCR headquarters in Geneva. Since then she has visited Libya during the revolution, Afghanistan, Chad and Darfur to name a few. She was subsequently presented with a gold pin in recognation for her serving as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador for a decade.

2002 - Introducing Mr Maddox

Angelina adopted her first son, Maddox, from Cambodia. He was the main man in her life after she divorced Billy Bob, but the pair wouldn't be alone for long...

2005 - Two words: Brad. Pitt.

Uh oh. The two hottest people in Hollywood. On set. Playing a fiesty married couple, oozing with sexual tension. We all know what happened next...

2006 - Team Brangelina!

Shiloh was the most anticipated baby since Jesus Christ, apparently (Kimye who?!). But surely it's unfair for one person to hog all those superhuman genes? Indeed, the star soon popped out that adorable duo, Vivienne and Knox in 2008, as well as adding Ethopian Zahara and Vietnamese Pax to the fam. Please can you adopt us next?

2007 - Angelina turned director

La Jolie made her directorial debut with the documentary A Place in Time, which captures daily life in 27 locations around the world during a single week. The film was screened at the Tribeca Film Festival and was intended for distribution to high schools through the National Education Association.

2009 - She topped Time's Celebrity 100

Angelina bagged the number one spot on the magazine's ranking of the world's most powerful celebrities. 'Thanks to the release of several blockbuster movies and an endless sea of media buzz, Jolie has dethroned Oprah Winfrey to top this year's Celebrity 100 list,' Time trilled.

2011- Her film In the Land of Blood and Honey received a Golden Globe nomination

Her directorial feature debut told a love story between a Serb soldier and a Bosniak prisoner of war, set during the 1992–95 Bosnian War. Jolie made the film to rekindle attention for the survivors of a war that took place in recent history and as well as scripting the film, she co-produced it too. It also  for Best Foreign Language Film.

2012 - Her right leg sparked a phenomenon

The 2012 Academy Awards will go down in history as the night Angelina flashed her right leg - and with that, her limb went viral.

2013 - Angelina spoke out about her double mastectomy

Angelina Jolie revealed that she had undergone a double mastectomy in a bid to prevent contracting cancer – the disease that killed her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, aged just 56. She discovered she was a carrier of the “faulty” BRCA1 gene, which meant she had a 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer. She made her first public appearance after her brave announcement in slinky black Saint Laurent arm in arm with Brad Pitt at the premiere of World War Z. What a woman!

2014 - Angelina's greatest look, ever?

At the BAFTAs Angelina and Brad turned up in matchy matchy tuxedos. Angelina turned to her favourite label, Saint Laurent, for her tux.

2014 - Mr and Mrs Smith take two?

Reports are circulating that the A-list couple have decided to work together on a film for the first time in a decade, and the script has been written by Angelina. Sources say that Brad and Ange hope to replicate the success of Mr and Mrs Smith, which grossed £300 million worldwide and sparked the romance that has had us hooked ever since.

2014 - 'Angelina is easier to work with than politicians'

They may be the most unlikely double act in town but next week Angelina Jolie and William Hague are to chair a summit on sexual violence in war zones. It’s the strongest hint yet that the actress and UN special envoy is shifting her career focus from films to politics. The British Foreign Secretary told Grazia that Angelina was ‘giving her all’ for the event aimed at changing attitudes to rape and sexual exploitation – and that their work together won’t end there. William Hague told Grazia that Angelina is 'easier to work with than politicians.'

And here's to many more happy moments to come. While we watch and wait, check out Angelina's greatest style hits in the gallery below...
