She is one of the most highly paid Hollywood actresses, a mother of many children, a UN goodwill ambassador and just a very effective woman who looks superb at the age of forty. However, not always life spoiled Angelina Jolie. Biographers and admirers of Mrs. Pitt, who received this official status in 2014, excavated many intimate secrets of the actress, who she kept under seven locks. What was the life of Angelina Jolie in her youth? What kind of memories would she want to get rid of forever?
Yes, in her childhood and youth, Angelina Jolie could not call herself a lucky woman. Both mother and father Angie were constantly busy shooting, as they worked as actors. When the girl was one year old, her father left the family, leaving his ex-wife with two young children. Angie's mother, Marceline Bertrand, left her dreams of an acting career, focusing on her daughter and son. Money in the family has always been lacking, as the mother was interrupted by occasional sub-jobs. Looking at Angelina Jolie now, it's hard to imagine that in childhood and adolescence she dressed exclusively in second-hand.
Fouling by complexes because of their own thinness (malnutrition in the family was common), she tried to express protest by dressing in black clothes. Gothic style of Angie was complemented by bright red hair. Already at the age of fourteen she met with the boys. One of them even became her civil husband. At the same time, the mother believed that children should live with her under one roof, rather than wander around in parks in search of a place for solitude. Angelina Jolie herself and now says that in her youth she did the right thing, and her mother supported it. At the age of sixteen, she decided that the family was not for her. The main meaning of life was work. Beginning Angie model, showing off clothes on the London, Los Angeles and New York catwalks. She was noticed and invited to appear in video clips. The most outstanding works of Angie is cooperation with Lenny Kravitz, Rolling Stones and Meat Loaf. But the theater was more interested in her, so she returned there.
Stormy youth of the film
While Angie tried her hand at role model, her older brother James Haven managed to finish the film school. The first films in which Angelina Jolie starred in her youth were his experimental tests. The actress does not like to talk about them. The official debut was the role of the robot Kazells in the action movie "Cyborg 2: The Glass Shadow". Then the glory did not go yet, but the directors noticed a beautiful girl. The first successful role was filming in the "Hackers", which, among other things, gave Jolie the first official spouse of Johnny Lee Miller. Three years they met, and after the wedding they lived for several months and parted.
During this time, Angie tried all the known drugs, she learned to relieve stress with alcohol. In her biography, there was a place for both suicide attempts and for shearing herself with knives. The latter, according to the actress, helped her to transform emotional pain into physical, which is easier to fight with.
However, the new proposals, which literally poured on Angelina very generously, saved her from a step to the abyss. World glory, life under the spotlight and the close attention of the paparazzi forced her to keep herself in hand. In 2005, a joint shooting with Brad Pitt in the movie "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" was the beginning of their romantic relationship, which grew into a strong creative union. The actors decided to legalize their relationship only seven years later. Today Angelina loves, is loved and happy!
