Angelina Jolie is surprised she didn’t die already, after her wild younger years

Angelina Jolie wasn’t always the saint-like charitable mother of six she is today. In fact, the 36-year-old actor opens up during an interview airing on 60 Minutes this Sunday about how she was so wild when she was younger, she’s thankful to be alive.

“I went through heavy darker times and I survived them,” Angelina admits. “I didn’t die young, so I’m very lucky. There are other artists and people who didn’t survive certain things.”

When pressed about the “darker times,” Angie laughs it off. “I was hoping you’d miss that!” she says. “Nothing I want to go into a lot of detail about, but I think people can imagine that I did the most dangerous and I did the worst—and for many reasons I shouldn’t be here.”

She adds, “”You think of those too many times where you came close to too many dangerous things, too many chances taken too far.”

Be sure to catch Angelina’s full interview when it airs this Sunday on 60 Minutes.

I think this is a sort of damage control about what was published about her in intouch magazine. this is not her first time of talking about it. i know she became a good girl after wrecking a home

Uchy, such a stupid comment. First of all, tabloids write something bad about Angelina every week. So it doesn’t make sense to claim “damage control”. I don’t know what IT said but it’s probably the same old Brad and/or Angelina is having an affair, she abuses the kids, she’s a drug addict, etc. Also 60 Minutes starts the interview process weeks and months in advance. Not on a whim just a couple of days prior to the airdate.

So how many other sites are you going to post that stupid comment..

she did this interview weeks ago. Long before a tabloid story. But of course you didn’t know that.

so typical of the haters. A day late and fact are always wrong.
