- Laura Shcreffler, BettyConfidential.com
Angelina Jolie is about to go completely glam for her role as mysterious Englishwoman Elise Clifton-Ward in The Tourist this month, busting out the fire engine red lips, furs and pearls. But while you're waiting to see Angie's inner siren seduce Johnny Depp's befuddled American tourist Dec. 10, check out this hot mommy's ten best - and most shocking - physical career transformations!
1. Hackers, 1995
As beautiful high school hacker Kate Libby (AKA "Acid Burn"), Angie not only managed to rock a gamine pixie with bangs (NOT a look I recommend you try at home), she also scored first hubby Jonny Lee Miller at the same time! Some gals have all the luck.
2. Foxfire, 1996
Only Angelina could wear a shag mullet and not look atrocious. As drop-dead gorgeous drifter "Legs" Sadovsky, Ms. Jolie also managed to seduce her real-life lesbian lover Jenny Shmizu off-screen in this coming of age tale based on Joyce Carol Oates' novel Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang.
3. Gia, 1998
Hello, hot lesbian! In this award-winning biopic based on the life of 1970's drug-addled model Gia Carangi, Angie went retro glam with big hair, big shoulder pads and a big amount of makeup! Some say she looked hotter than the model did in real life.
4. Girl Interrupted, 1999
Seriously, can this woman ever look ugly? Wearing an awful, inmate jumpsuit, a wan complexion and a horrific blond dye job, Ms. Jolie still managed to live up to her name - and win an Oscar, too! - as 1960's mental patient Lisa Rowe.
5. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, 2001
This is the Angie we know and love best! As video game vixen gone live Lara, she's at her leather-clad, lush-lipped best.
6. Alexander, 2004
Surely her appearance in this Oliver Stone production, based on the life of Macedonian king Alexander the Great, is indicative as to why Angelina is the frontrunner to take over Elizabeth Taylor's infamous role of Cleopatra. As Alexander's mama Olympias, Angie wears flowing toga dresses, curly, queen-like tresses, winged black eyeliner and a boatload of gold. What a goddess.
7. Mr. & Mrs. Smith, 2005
As if we couldn't see why Brad Pitt fell for her in the first place, watching this movie we're surprised he wasn't able to keep his hands off her! As secret spy Jane Smith, Angie shows off her natural beauty - and natural sex appeal - with loose waves, red lips and lots of tight, black clothing.
8. A Mighty Heart, 2007
Wow - what a transformation! As Marianne Pearl, the widow of kidnapped Wall Street Journal report Daniel Pearl, Angelina channels her real-life pal with brown contacts, a frizzy brown perm, a pregnant belly and a stoic, heroic expression.
9. Changeling, 2008
As Christine Collins, a mother on a mission to find her missing son in this drama based on real life events, Angelina is a total 1920's throwback with her finger-waved bob, puffy red lips, stark white face and darling cloche hats.
10. Salt, 2010
Three Angies for the price of one! As sexy, modern-day spy Evelyn Salt, Angelina changes her 'do from grey to blond to brown to avoid capture after being (wrongly? Correctly) accused as a member of the KGB.
