A few years ago before the second Tomb Raider movie, I noticed that Angelina Jolie began to look a little different in photographs. I couldn’t quite figure it out. Clearly she had the same world famous lips that everyone talked about, but her eyes seemed to stand out a bit more. At first, I thought she just looked different because she had plucked her eyebrows to mere wisps. Then, as the eyebrows grew out again, that clearly wasn’t the change I had noticed. I finally determined the change when I saw an old picture of her.

She had her nose done, ever so slightly.

It’s not a major change unlike what happened to Jennifer Grey, but it shifts even more focus onto her eyes and lips. This makes her very photogenic as the lips and eyes always work well in photos—a two-dimensional medium. Don’t believe me? Take a look at any cartoon or comic drawing. The eyes and lips tend to have the most emphasis on them for most characters, particularly the “pretty” ones.

What does this mean? Well, not much really except perhaps one thing. Angelina Jolie is quite renowned for being individualistic—a renegade, rebel, etc. Yet she did one of the most common things in Hollywood to her face—a nose job. You would think someone as “individualistic” as Angelina Jolie would not have submitted herself to the Hollywood Borg but that's apparently wrong.
