I’m sure you’ve heard a lot of things about Angelina Jolie in your lifetime (and probably in any past lifetimes you’ve lived), whether it’s your conservative aunt talking about how she stole Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston in some sort of elaborate husband heist, or just the tabloids at the supermarket screaming that her WEDDING IS OFF every week. Sometimes it’s hard to separate the truth from the fiction and the ridiculous exaggeration, especially since Angie has been known to do some questionable things, like marrying Billy Bob Thornton or that whole Beowulf thing.
Since today is Angelina’s 38th birthday, we thought it would be fun to test just how much you know about her by playing the fun game “Two Truths and a Lie.” You might be familiar with it from seeing celebrities play it on talk shows, where it almost always involves them bragging about people they went to high school with. You might have played it at parties or as an icebreaker in a college class, where it almost always leads to you finding out the people you’re about to spend a semester with have done some pretty creepy stuff. If you’re not aware of it, the idea is that you are presented with two true statements about a person and one made-up statement, and you have to figure out which one is the lie. Are you excited yet? You should be. Quizzes are fun.
Look at each set of statements, which have been organized by theme, and guess which one is the lie. Some are pretty obvious (you’re welcome), but I’d like to think some are pretty difficult. When you want to find out the lie, click the link below the choices to go to the answer page. Ready? Let’s go!
