I’m still not sure what brought me back to Angelina. To be honest, I’m sure she was always there.
Maybe it’s because a historic queer Oscars are coming up and in everyone’s excitement about Kristen Stewart and Ariana DeBose’s nominations, a lot of straight (some gay) media are skipping over Angelina Jolie’s win for Girl, Interrupted — which is not only bisexual erasure for Angelina (it is!), but also erasure of the movie that made me gay.
Maybe it’s because Autostraddle turned 13 this week, and that means I wrote about what a horny lonely nerd I was in 1999, which will always bring me back to Angelina Jolie (what did I just say?? Did you forget already! Girl, Interrupted made me gay).
But also maybe some things don’t need to have a reason. Angelina was — and remains — a stunner. Somehow both ethereal and permanent. First of her name, a legend of her time, none other like her.
And so… listed without commentary, here are 10 photos of Angelina Jolie, curated together for no other reason than the 90s called and they said hold my bisexual beer.
