One of the most polarizing movie stars working today, Angelina Jolie seems to provoke strong reactions, some of them downright hostile. Oh, I get it, I really do. I mean -- just look at her! That face, that body, that Brad, those kids, that career; it's all too much. Add general outspokenness and some downright odd behavior -- though not lately -- and we have someone who pushes buttons (including a big one marked "envy"), to say the least.

But are we being fair? This is someone who has probably done more for humanitarian causes than any other Hollywood figure under the age of 40 (including, via the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, a recent donation of $1 million to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières, for post-earthquake relief efforts in Haiti). With her latest film, 'Salt,' in which she plays a CIA operative accused of being a Russian assassin, hitting theaters Friday, we take the opportunity to investigate her alleged sins.
