and the topic he raised. Critics gave mixed reviews. The book's author, Susanna Kaysen, criticized the film and accused Mangold of adding "melodramatic nonsense" to the story, inventing plot points that were not in the book, such as Lisa and Susanna running away together. The author was delighted only with Angelina's performance. However, critics also praised the actresses who took on a mediocre script. The worst for Winona came at the end of this story, when the film was presented at the Oscars in only one category: the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Angelina Jolie. And she won it.
So, for her role, Angie received the third Golden Globe, the second Screen Actors Guild Award and, from the first nomination, she took the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Perhaps it was the peak of Jolie's success and fame. A happy moment was ruined by a trick from Angelina after the ceremony. There she gave an interview holding hands with her brother and she never tired of repeating to him how much she loves him and that he is the best man in her
life. The public had nothing against it, but the next day the tabloids were filled with photos where the actress kissed James hard on her lips.

Jolie tried to explain that with such a gesture she was showing love and everything else was false speculation from the press. But journalists were left with an unpleasant aftertaste. The year 2000 was especially eventful and brought many pleasant and unexpected events for Angelina. Angie first appeared in her first summer blockbuster, Gone in 60 Seconds. The film was directed by Dominic Sena and starred Nicolas Cage, who was supposed to steal 50 cars in exchange for his brother's
life. Inserted quote: “They gave me a script that was nothing more than Ferraris, Nick Cage and Giovanni Ribisi and I thought it was a good idea. “It’s a fun movie and I tried to have fun.” (Angelina Jolie) After serious roles, it was a departure for the actress.
She landed the role of the beautiful Sway, a mechanic who was once the girlfriend of Cage's character. Bobby Ore, a stunt enthusiast, trained her in extreme driving and car hacking, and Dominic Sena provided non-stop action shooting for her. And besides Ferrari, there were quite a few interesting cars in the film: Aston Martin DB1, Cadillac Eldorado, Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible, Dodge Viper Coupé GTS, Lamborghini Diablo SE30 and others. And although the film starred as many as three Academy Award winners: Jolie, Cage and Robert Duvall, the film could not go beyond a fun blockbuster and become a serious drama.
Critics negatively criticized the weak script and gave the film mixed reviews. It grossed $237 million at the box office, but due to high production costs and an initial budget of almost $100 million. It was a dubious success. The studio lost a lot of money on the project. Well, Jolie soon became a participant in the scandal in the media. It happened on the set of the erotic thriller film Original Sin. Antonio Banderas was her filming partner. The fact is that Angelina agreed to act in explicit sex scenes, as long as she was naked, and Antonio supported the idea. As a result, the footage was so explicit that director Michael Cristofer had to remove all the steamy scenes.
Upon hearing this, journalists spread the news that Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas were having real sex in the shot. The press published article after article about the secret romance between the actors. Even Banderas' wife, Melanie Griffith, couldn't help but be asked about it. But any doubts Melanie Griffith may have had about the explicit sex scenes between her husband and Angelina on set were quickly dispelled when Jolie confirmed her relationship with Billy Bob Thornton, already known to the public. Despite the cuts, the film turned out to be quite frank. Many viewers considered the scene almost erotic pornography.
The film failed at the box office and Jolie was nominated for the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress. But he wasn't much interested in her anymore, because her personal relationships came to the fore again. The actress was part of a love triangle between Billy Bob Thornton and his fiancee Laura Dern. While Dern was filming, Thornton left her home without explanation and began avoiding her. The next thing he discovered was that her fiancé had married Jolie. She insert quote: “I left our home to work on a movie and while I was away, my boyfriend got married and I never heard from him again.
It's like a sudden death. There has been no closure or clarity for anyone” (Laura Dern) Although Laura Dern and Angelina Jolie never crossed paths during their love triangle, they spent some time together as children. Both actresses are daughters of Hollywood stars. Laura's father, Bruce Dern, recalled a time he worked on set with Angelina's father a few years ago. Inserted quote: "Jon Voight is a friend of mine, so I remember Laura babysat Angelina one night when Angelina was two and Laura was about eight... because Jon and I were doing “Coming Home.” (Bruce Dern) They stayed at director Hal Ashby's house.
They were both on set, so Laura was asked to take care of Angie since she was the eldest. On May 5, 2000, the couple had a wedding, which did not differ much in scope of the previous one. The $200 wedding ceremony was held in a small Las Vegas church and the witnesses were the only guests. There were questions about Thornton, married four times, but the couple was sure of their sincere and lasting love. Billy claimed that in five years their marriage would be just as strong. Thornton is not only an actor, but also a talented musician. He dedicated a song to Angelina after the wedding:
