Revealed facts about Angelina Jolie
In spite of the fact that she didn't have an extreme childhood, Angelina Jolie experienced suicidal depression as a teenager. She has been very open about her childhood in interviews with magazines and media. Jolie encountered the psychological illness when she was attempting to get modeling tasks as an adolescent. As told by allwomenstalk.com, Jolie would hurt herself with sharp items. "For reasons unknown, the custom of having cut myself and feeling the agony, perhaps feeling invigorated, feeling some sort of discharge, it was by one means or another remedial to me." We're happy she didn't surrender herself into sadness, but rather she cut out an amazing future in Hollywood.
Living past 40
She makes the choice of going through a double masectomy in 2013. Brad Pitt, her then husband, opened up to the Wall Street Journal, during the promotion of By the Sea, about Jolie, even her mom's demise in 2007. He said that Jolie, had watched her mom, aunt and grandma get sick and give up on life at a very early age. But inspite of all that the effect of her actions towards her children, the underprivileged and those people who's going through injustices, defines her as a perspon. He also said she never could envision herself living beyond the age of 40.
Weird crushes on people
When she was very young, she had two crushes that were both interesting and unexpected for us. According to Vogue, she had a crush on Star Trek's Spock. Jolie told John Stewart, who's now the previous host of The Daily Show in 1999, "He was so repressed" and "You just wanted to make him scream." That clearly sounds like something we would say. We feel you Jolie. We do. Other than Spock, Jolie crushed on a Pyscho's Anthony Perkins. This just proves how Jolie is always a dark and mysterious. We totally approve though!
Played in music videos
This is something not alot of people are aware of Angelina Jolie. Unless you're a big music video fan, you wouldn't have realized that the artist has showed up in a few music videos. She's showed up in Meat Loaf's "Rock And Roll Dreams Come Through", Lenny Kravitz' "Stand by my Woman" and as a stripper in The Rolling Stones' "Anyone Seen my Baby". She appeared in music videos during a period when she was attempting to make a mark of herself in Hollywood. What better approach to get your name out there than showing up in music recordings. It was not before long somebody saw her beauty and talent.
Jolie's mom, Marcheline Jolie, persuaded her then 14-year-old daughter to start modeling. Jolie has openly revealed that it was quite a negative experience. As mentioned in Vogue, this is what helped her relate to her role in the movie Gia, as Gia Carangi, a very troubled model. "I tried modeling when I was 14 and failed miserably," Jolie said to the New York Times. She also said how alike with Gia she was. Jolie was also told that she had problems with excess body weight, when she was actually very thin already. They had even measured every single part of her body and it made her feel terrible. This was just one of the many problems that she was told by them to fix.
Made money from kids’ photos
It was only a matter of time that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt became a couple and started their family. They welcomed their little girl Shiloh into the world in 2006. As per Vogue, they sold their baby's photos to People Magazine for a reported $4.1 million, which she gave the whole total to charity. When she had twins in 2008, the photographs were sold for an astounding $11 million, an amount, stated by Vogue, is a record for the most costly child pictures. This cash also went for charity.
Does not have a publicist
Many reports in Hollywood suggests that Jolie does not have a publicist or manager, but represents herself in any events or meeting. Thewrap reported Jolie to be exceptionally involved with regards to projects. Producer Graham King for the movie In The Land of Blood and Honey had a meeting Angelina, he said "She turned up in my office with the location, photos, storyboards, casting information. The train was leving the station. When she said 'I'd love for you to produce this movie' I was already hooked… Whether it's interviews, photo shoots or directing films, she gets involved herself."
Almost become a funeral director
Angelina Jolie considered to become a funeral director, because of family passing and how ineffectively the memorial service was taken care of. "I thought I could do better, so I got a home course when I was around 14. It sounds like this very strange, eccentric, dark thing to do but in fact I lost my grandfather and was very upset with his funeral. If this whole acting thing didn't work out that was going to be my path", she said in 2011 to 60 Minutes. Fortunately everything worked for the better, and she choice acting.
Rumoured affairs with Rosie O’Donnell
There were rumours that Rosie O'Donnell and Angelina Jolie were romatically linked. Rosie assumes so. EOnline stated that O'Donnell assumed "there was something there" between the two when showing up on The Howard Stern Show. "She gave me her telephone number," said Rosie. "We taled on the telephone a few times, but that was that. There was a tentative plan to have dinner that never came through." O'Donnell was quite intimidated by her "She's scary in a sensual sort of way. I have dreams about her a lot still". However Jolie hasn't made a public statement regarding their link up.
Got married in jeans
When she chose to marry Billy Bob Thornton in 2000, after a two-month relationship, she wore jeans on her big day. The two ran away! Both Thornton and Jolie didn't look like famous acors at all! A reverend who wedded the couple said in regards to Jolie, when he met Daily Mail, that he was happy Angelina wedded Brad, and that he's a genuine good individual and she is as well.
