As one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses in recent years, Angelina Jolie has been able to use her wealth to help others. Most recently, the humanitarian donated $1 million to No Kid Hungry, an organization that aims to end childhood hunger and will help feed children who relied on school lunches for food prior to the coronavirus pandemic.
“As of this week, over a billion children are out of school worldwide because of closures linked to coronavirus,” Jolie said in a statement released on Wednesday by No Kid Hungry. “Many children depend on the care and nutrition they receive during school hours, including nearly 22 million children in America who rely on food support. No Kid Hungry is making resolute efforts to reach as many of those children as possible.”
Thanks to Jolie and other donors, the organization has already contributed $2 million to “78 organizations across 30 states.”
After making such a large donation, onlookers may be wondering just how much the mom of six is worth. Unfortunately for those inquiring, her net worth as of 2020 is not completely clear. Due to mixed reports, Jolie is reported to be worth anywhere between $100 to $160 million dollars.
As Wealthy Persons reports, the “Maleficent” actress is believed to make at least $10 million per film. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jolie earned over $120 million from her movie deals between 2001 and 2011. Her initial “Lara Croft” film earned her $7 million while the sequel led to a payout of $12 million. Jolie’s role in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” the set where she met ex-husband Brad Pitt, paid off in the amount of $10 million. Her acting fee steadily increased as she landed roles in films such as “Wanted” and “The Tourist.”
The Oscar winner has also earned money from voicing a character in the animated “Kung Fu Panda” films and directing projects such as “Unbroken,” “By the Sea,” and “First They Killed My Father.” Jolie also has the title of producer on her resume with her production company, Jolie Pas.
This isn’t the first time that Jolie has used her platform to fight for a cause. In the past, she has publicly supported human and women’s rights organizations. She is an ambassador for United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), an organization that she also donated $1 million to in 2001. In 2013, the star received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 5th Annual Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Governors Awards for her philanthropy efforts.
