Actress Angelina Jolie has been interviewed on 60 Minutes, and has admitted that she was “lucky” not to have died at a young age.
Jolie had a well documented troubled past; being hooked on hard drugs, as well as going through periods of self-harming. However, she has overcome those troubled times and has revealed that she knows how close she came to having a very different outcome.
On the 60 Minutes interview she 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."
She did admit that although her life is now much calmer with her six children that she still has a wild side inside of her: “I'm still a bad girl. I still have that side of me. It's just in its place now.”
