Hollywood has been trying to find the next Angelina Jolie for the past decade - an actress that manages to combine acting ability, stunning looks, and mainstream commercial appeal. While Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone are definitely Hollywood's 'It' girls right now, neither their looks nor their careers are similar to Jolie's when she was younger. However, there is a young star in India Eisley, an actress who bears a striking resemblance to Angelina Jolie, so much so that she will be playing a younger version of Jolie's character in Disney's Maleficent.
Now, Jolie made some interesting acting choices early on in her career, especially before gaining critical acclaim and an Oscar win with Girl, Interrupted. With a similar blend of indie and commercial projects, including one where she acts with Jolie herself, could India Eisley become the next Angelina Jolie?
Now, Eisley definitely doesn't have the off-screen fascination that Jolie commanded, even before she met Brad Pitt and become one half of 'Brangelina'. Some would argue that a large part of Jolie's star power comes from her rocky start in the industry, her tabloid antics in the late 1990s, and then of course - her meeting with Mr. Pitt.
Whether or not Eisley will be known for all that remains to be seen, as she's still only 19 years old. For now, she looks remarkably like Jolie did at her age, and she's making some great career choices. Even if she doesn't become the next 'Angelina Jolie', she will still likely become a star. Watch out for Eisley in the upcoming 'Kite' and Disney's Maleficent.
