While acting may run in the family，it wasnt Angelina Jolie‘s only choice when thinking about her future. Although Jolie has studied her craft(技艺)since childhood，at one point the 26-year-old，who stars this month in Tomb Raider with her father，actor John Voight，wanted to be a funeral(殡葬)director.“I thought that the crossing over could be a beautiful thing and a time of comfort when people could reach out to each other.”
Tradition(传统)is always attractive and interesting to Jolie，who moved with her mother，Marcheline Bertand，and brother after her parents separated when she was two.“I never had one home. I never had an attic(阁楼)that had old things in it. We always moved，so I was never rooted anywhere. And I always dreamed of having that attic of things that I could go back and have a look. Im very drawn to some things that are tradition，that are roots，and I think that may be why I paid such special attention to funerals.”
Finally，she chose acting.“Following in my fathers footsteps，”she says，“is an interesting thing，because I think we speak to each other through our work. You don‘t really know your parents in a certain way，and they dont really know you. So he can watch a film and see how I am as a woman，the way I’m dealing with a husband whos been hurt，or the way I‘m crying alone.”
“And its the same for me：I can watch films of his and just see who he is. I‘ve learned to understand him as a person.”
