It was 1995, and as a young starlet set to appear in her first leading role, she was on the cusp of fame and fortune. And in this previously unseen photoshoot, Angelina Jolie proved why she went on to become one of Hollywood’s most sultry superstars. The actress, then 19, ensured her role in 1995 film Hackers grabbed attention by stripping down for a series of racy images.
Angelina appeared to be far from camera shy as she showed off her body in a series of seductive poses during the shoot with Los Angeles photographer Marcel Indik. With her luscious brown locks cut into a ruffled bob, the star strikes a series of provocative poses in a revealing black dress. One snap shows the star hitch up her dress while smoking a cigarette and wearing curlers. She also flashes the top of her behind as she leans topless against a wall – and gives fans a glimpse of her first few tattoos in her body art collection.
The photos are especially poignant for the actress: the film – about computer criminals – ended up being one of her big breaks, and also introduced her to her first husband, British actor Jonny Lee Miller, her male co-star. The movie’s subject is also especially topical – Angelina was dragged into the Sony leak earlier this month. She was namechecked in emails fired off between producer Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal, in which the actress was labelled ‘seriously out of her mind’ and ‘a minimally talented spoilt brat’.
Now, almost 20 years on, the actress is a world away from her one-time bad girl of Tinseltown image. A mother of six, the Oscar winner married Brad Pitt earlier this year. She has worked on her second directorial effort, Unbroken, and was feted with an honourary Damehood by Queen Elizabeth II in October in recognition of her charity work.
