Jolie is not the type of person who might immediately strike you as a nerd, but her wide range of offbeat hobbies reveals that she is, in her own words, "a closet geek." She is a unabashed fencing enthusiast, she listens to trials at the Hague in her spare time, and she is a total gearhead about planes. She is also the most widely respected humanitarian in Hollywood, and frequently travels to crisis zones all around the world as UN Goodwill Ambassador and Special Envoy. No wonder she gets cast as butt-kicking warriors so often! The girl's a real life heroine.
