Angelina Jolie admits that she’s very “lucky” to have not died young. The Oscar-winning actress is famed for her wild past – including a period where she experimented with hard drugs and self-harming – and is grateful that she’s still alive.
The 36-year-old beauty said, “I went through heavy, darker times and I survived them. I didn’t die young, so I’m very lucky. There are other artists and people who didn’t survive certain things. People can imagine I did the most dangerous and the worst. For many reasons, I shouldn’t be here. You just think [about] those times when you came too close to too many dangerous things, too many chances taken, too far.”
The stunning actress admits her life has calmed down, but she will always have a wild side to her personality. “I’m still a bad girl. I still have that side of me. It’s just in its place now – it belongs to Brad. Or our adventures.”
We’re also glad that this is one GLAM girl still gracing the red carpets – and our pages – and it’s great to see her so happy and settled! Life lesson to be learnt? Appreciate what you’ve got, and look after that fabulous body of yours, girl, so you can be rockin’ it for years to come!
