Angelina Jolie talks 'heavy, darker times' on '60 Minutes'
Before she raised lots of children, Angelina Jolie raised lots of eyebrows by wearing a vial of Billy Bob Thornton’s blood around her neck and kissing her brother but good on the mouth. On this Sunday’s edition of 60 Minutes, the actress/humanitarian/wife of Brad Pitt opens up (a little) to Bob Simon about those wilder days as well as her experiences as a first-time director of a film, the Bosnia-set romantic drama In the Land of Blood of Honey. But enough for about the latter for right now — what did she have to say about the old Angelina? “I went through heavy, darker times and I survived them,” she reveals. “I didn’t die young, so I’m very lucky.” She also makes reference to taking “too many chances” and being close to “too many dangerous things” while never quite articulating what those chances and things were. We’re guessing that’s all the tidbits she’s giving away, but maybe we’ll find out more on Sunday? That doesn’t mean that she’s completely reformed: “I’m still a bad girl,” she notes. “I still have that side of me … it belongs to Brad. Or… our adventures.”Watch a preview of the segment below:
