It is not uncommon for actress Angelina Jolie to appear at the top of publicly voted lists and this one has proven to be no exception. Jolie’s role of Gia Carangi has been selected as the most favoured lesbian character in film.
The poll, run by LesbiNation, asked for readers to suggest their favourite lesbian characters that have appeared in films.
Jolie topped the list for her role as Gia Carangi in Gia, a film directed by Michael Cristofer that was released in early 1998. The film depicted the life of the title character and her rise to fame as a supermodel, while having a passionate affair with a female make-up artist. The role won Jolie a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award.
Jolie was followed by Ally Sheedy for her role in High Art, and Chea DuVall in But I’m A Cheerleader.
Recently produced and highly praised film Loving Annabelle also had a mention, with Erin Kelly being voted fourth on the list.
Other actresses that appeared in the top ten include Jennifer Tilly for her role in Bound, and Queen Latifah for her contribution to Set It Off.
