Describe your childhood: |
Jolie: My childhood was filled with love and support of whatever I wanted to be or do with my life. I had 2 sisters and a brother that were quite a bit older than I was but they always supported me in everything that I wanted to do whether it was dirt bike racing or water skiing.

Public, we live in one of the best school districts in California.
