Angelina Jolie in 'Girl, Interrupted' (1999)

Here's another example of a crazy chick flick that made an actress famous. Before winning the Oscar for “Girl, Interrupted,” Angelina Jolie was just Jon Voight's daughter. In this drama adapted from Susan Kaysen's memoir, Jolie plays Lisa Rowe—by far the sexiest inmate in a mental institution that includes a pre-“Mad Men” Elisabeth Moss, Brittany Murphy, and Winona Ryder. Jolie's character is a total loose cannon, provoking the other girls to do bad things, often pushing them over the edge. At the end of the film, strapped to a bed, she even declares, "I'm not really dead." Hollywood immediately took notice. "Jolie brings the kind of combustible sexuality to the screen that our movies, in the age of Meg Ryan, have been missing for too long," wrote Owen Gleiberman, film critic for Entertainment Weekly.
