Angelina Jolie Signs with Talent Agency
Angelina Jolie has added a talent agent to her team of representatives.
The actress-filmmaker has signed with Ilene Feldman at IFA Talent, who also represents Ryan Gosling, among others.
The last time Jolie had acting representation by a talent agency was in 2006, when she was with CAA (a stint that lasted 13 months). In March, she signed with UTA to rep her as a writer and director but not as an actor. She continues to be with her longtime manager Geyer Kosinski at Media Talent Group and attorney Robert Offer of Sloane Offer Weber & Dern.
Sources say IFA will help Jolie, arguably the biggest female star in the world, find roles in smaller, independently financed films, not studio tentpoles or franchises.
The move comes just over month before the release of Jolie’s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, which she also wrote. Jolie has spent the past several years acting in big studio movies such as The Tourist, Salt and Wanted, and has lent her voice to the mega-grossing Kung Fu Panda movies.
Her last dramas were 2008’s The Changeling and 2007’s A Mighty Heart, the former earning her an Oscar nomination. She won the best supporting actress statuette for 1999's Girl, Interrupted.
