Angelina Jolie Debuts Tattoo in Strapless Gown at Tony Awards


Angelina Jolie uncaged a flying bird chest tattoo at the 2024 Tony Awards, making sure to wear a gown to showcase the new ink.

On Sunday, June 16, the 49-year-old actress and producer of The Outsiders graced the red carpet at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater in New York City.

Jolie stunned in a custom light-teal Atelier Versace velvet draped gown with a sweetheart neckline, which revealed a new tiny bird chest tattoo. The sparrow-like bird appeared to be in flight.

Back in April, when Angelina Jolie and her daughter Vivienne attended the musical’s opening night, Jolie’s tattoo was not visible. This time, she wore a matching velvet shrug, perfectly complementing her 15-year-old daughter.

Vivienne, credited as an assistant producer on The Outsiders Playbill, matched her mother’s elegant style. The teenager rocked a crisp white shirt under a teal vest, paired with matching trousers and a bow tie. She completed her look with Converse sneakers, blending class with a dash of rebellious charm.

Angelina Jolie Managed to Flaunt Her New Chest Tattoo on the Tony Awards Stage

Jolie received a nomination for co-producing the musical adaptation of S.E. Hinton’s 1967 novel The Outsiders, which has been nominated for 12 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Meanwhile, Danya Taymor won the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical.

Meanwhile, Jolie presented a performance by the show’s company. The segment featured renditions of the songs “Tulsa ’67” and “Grease Got a Hold.” The performance culminated in the entire cast performing the rumble, an intricate dance fight set against a backdrop of falling rain.

“[S. E.] Hinton wrote The Outsiders in high school, and half a century later, it still speaks to us. Society changes, but the experience of being an outsider is universal,” Jolie said in the introduction. “To any young person, any person, feeling on the outside, you are not wrong to see what is unfair. You are not wrong to wish to find your own path.”

She continued, “As the cast raise their voices, I hope it inspires many of you watching to value yours. Please welcome the extraordinary company of The Outsiders.”

Based on Hinton’s 1967 coming-of-age novel, The Outsiders musical centers on the class struggles between the working-class greasers and the wealthy Socs. The narrative primarily follows the lives of brothers Ponyboy, Darrel, and Sodapop “Soda” Curtis, along with their friends, as they navigate life after the tragic loss of their parents.
