Angelina Jolie: Lucky To Be Alive!

Angelina Jolie: Lucky To Be Alive!

Angelina Jolie gets profiled by Bob Simon on CBS’ 60 Minutes, which will air on Sunday (November 27) @ 7PM ET/PT.

“I went through heavy, darker times and I survived them,” the 36-year-old actress shared. “I didn’t die young, so I’m very lucky. There are other artists and people who didn’t survive certain things.”

Angie continued. “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.”

“I’m still a bad girl,” Angie added. “I still have that side of me…it’s just in its place now…it belongs to Brad [Pitt]. Or…our adventures.”

    lol poor trolls having a meltdown as usual

  • bizzy bee

    Takes a real strong man not to run away from a girl with a past. Tells me Brad doesn’t give a damn, he likes that he has a girl who can kick ass, and who’s been there, done that. Good girl or bad girl, we’ll take Angelina either way. If Brad loves her, I like her.

  • DAMN….

    She’s gorgeous….sexy…….and has a dangerous side…

    Take it easy sucker, stress is a killer and green will give you wrinkles. If she is like everyone else, you won’t be here stressing over a mere interview. You know she is unique and not like any other celeb. You’re eaten up with envy and choking on your own puke. She owns you already. Lol.

  • dianad1968

    This is why the Ian Halperns and Andrew Mortons, and FFers of the world will NEVER be able to embarass or bring this woman down. She tells you the facts about her life, with no apologies. She is…..”here I am, warts and all”. There are no skeletons in her closet to come tumbling out, (can’t say the same for Ticky). So the rags and trolls and Handjob and Ticky can TRY all they want to malign her or destroy her, but will only destroy theselves. l admire this woman so much, and cannot believe the candor and wisdom from one so young. No wonder Brad said he is happy his kids have her as a mother.

    Ohhhhh Angie looking beautiful as always i cant wait to see the interview.

  • gracie

    Brad knows that with Angie, life can never be BORING. She is one HOT mama. He will never find life dull and uninteresting with Badass Jolie. Haha.

    @gracie … daang girl, you just schooled a few of the Anustain hens. Ha Ha. I too LOVE how the haters go ape sh*t over this woman. If they’re not careful they’ll implode.

  • Syd

    People hate what they are incapable of understanding.It is okay..
    Some people are Stupid with lack of Education, and Some are just stupid cause of some chemical imbalance in their
    JOlie is a human being.She has alot to learn like ALL of US.
    And I am glad that she can share her life story and impart some wisdom to everyone from what she has learned so far in her life.
    To hate this woman is simply madness.
    To listen and take in from what she is saying is Smart!
    No one is perfect.
    And No one can truly judge anyone.
    So People can get on their pulpits and say whatever the hell they want too..
    I don’t think GOD will be asking any of you your opinions and thoughts when Judgment day comes…lol
    We live..We let live..We embrace Love and We Let People grow and make the most of their lives.
    What is hard is living in a world- where people want to condemn Us for having Flaws and Trying to be human.

    I love you Angie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @ha ha: What a stupid human being you are! She was asked a question,she answered it truthfully! Get over your dislike of her and go throw yourself into the lion’s den.They will be so fortunate to have you as their dinner.Get it!!!

  • Just Saying

    Learn from Angelina, trolls. There is hope for you.

  • wow

    Yaay I’m going to set my dvr to record it on Sunday.

  • gracie

    dianad1968. You’re so right about Angie, she has nothing to hide. She tells it like it is, you either take it or leave it. We know Anuston has a lot of skeletons in her closet, that’s why she has her PR team to protect her 24/7 but they cannot protect her for ever. Sooner or later, the truth will come out and when they do, it will come with a BIG BANG. Just look at Demi and Ashton world, all their little secrets are coming out now. Secrets are not hidden for ever.

  • ha ha


    she is not human, as much as these freakin people on here are nasty as s hit, real people are human, celebs are not. she fools all of you into believing she is

    I guess that is the part of the interview that pushed them (oops just the ONE nut that is ) over the edge.. Wonder why.. Wonder why..

    gracie, I’m waiting for David Arquette to get drunk one day and spill some juicy titbits. LOL. Or who knows, when the inevitable break up with Cheater boy happens, we may get some doozies.

  • csw

    She is a survivor and thankfully so . Angelina certainly has moved on and affect many lives in a positive way. Thank you Angelina for your humanitarian work and your courage for owning your past but use it to empower you on your journey.

    Just to remind those who constantly take a shot at her appearance the next time you need to criticise her slim frame take a good look at Sarah Jessica Parker.

  • ha ha

    @Methe second:

    ewwwwwww, i never freakin said i was a fan of that ass hole either she s a bogus bi tch, fake as monopoly money, cant stand her and her ugly squiggy looking b/f! y do people assume if you say criticize one you have to like the other?
    I dont even dislike angelina, people here are just ignorant! she is not the first celeb to have a drug past, thats all I freakin said. why doesnt she focus on her movie which is at least work related, tired of all the bragging these celebs do about their dark past just to show how bad ass they are! pul eeeze kno your facts!

  • Jones

    To ha ha @ #182 – What are you bangin’ on about?! Angie is not bragging about her past. She’s being interviewed by Bob Simon of 60 Minutes you idiot! HE’S asking the questions and Angie has agreed to sit down and answer them. Have you ever watched this news program before?! Anyone who agrees to be interviewed on this show is NOT in control of the interview. The interviewer is. In this case, it’s Bob Simon. That’s how 60 Minutes rolls. Get your head out of your azz and get YOUR facts straight.

    I have always admired Angelina Jolie for her compassion, her sincerity, her inner strength and most of all, for her honesty. Angelina Jolie has always been forthcoming about her life choices, even though she does not need to explain to anyone what she has done in her past. I think she does this to show others that may be going through their own personal darkness; that their is hope and light for them.

    For those who have continue to bash her, those who seem to be on a mission to campaign against her as if they are threatened by her courage, and her frankness. Its a sad waste of energy to put this wonderful caring woman down, when she has done so much good for so many, In a world of billions there are millions and millions whom have been blessed by the good heart of this wonderful lady’s kindness. whose lives she has touched and helped and are also lucky she is alive .

    I am honored to have been here as a devoted fan for almost 20 years now, and still find something new about her that i learn from, especially the parts that make her most human and not some shell of an actress that most celebrities become when famous. Through the years I have seen how much she has grown and have seen all the positive things that she continues to do but I am sure there are many many more whom Angelina has gone out on a limb for, and who all went on to help others for this type of goodness has had a domino effect and is contagious and needed in a world that can be so unforgiving and cold..

    Angelina has never been someone who needs to hide behind a HW image and be what others think she should be in order to sell tickets to her next movie. She doesn’t need PR gimmicks to come to the aid of others and she is a lady who doesn’t just talk the talk, but walks the walk in every way. To me she is flawless even if she has scars to show for the darker times. To me and many fans, this shows true inner beauty in everything she is about . She is a true Angel here on earth and truly is deserving of all the love and support and blessings that continues to find their way to her and her family.

    Okay forgive me for my lesbiancrush because I can not help my imagination and love to envision her wild side in ways that might even shock Angelina but am glad that she can share this with her true love and man, Brad Pitt. I think this and the combination of everything else, it makes Angelina Jolie even more beautiful than ever!!

    Okay so maybe next to Angelina Jolie and her beautiful children, maybe Mr. Brad Pitt is after all the luckiest, that Angelina is alive, for he has changed into a real hero in every way. As Angelina has blossomed into who she is and is still becoming, her imprint is on her man Brad and has etched deeply into his soul. How lucky he is for knowing her true self and having her by his side through everything!! He also gets to live out the dream in every way, so I envy him most

    I am so proud of Angelina Jolie and I wish I could thank her beloved mother for raising her to be such a grounded and inspiring woman to so many. I bet her brother James is just as interesting and the JP children,are learning from the best of the best!.

    May many many Blessings continue to flourish for the lovely Angelina Jolie and to the JP’s and to their family and fans!!

  • Just Saying

    One never brags a dark past.
    Fault-finders are people who have difficulty accepting, loving, and forgiving themselves. They are always aware of how imperfect they are.

  • ha ha

    @Just Saying:

    celebs do for street cred. Read interviews with ANY celeb and they will just happen to bring up their drug past. i’m not against drugs but I find it annoying when people brag about them esp. their addiction to it because it looks really cool. I have yet to read an interview where a celeb didnt metion how much drinking or drugs they do/did.
    Ange is no different, she should think about her kids when she shares this info with the world, but of course, its HER bad ass image thats important isnt it?

    To ha ha @ #192 – Angie doesn’t need street cred. She’s a global icon, loved by millions around the world. You’re thinking of Ticky, one who lies in interviews about throwing chairs at film directors, is now sporting a tattoo and is running around in all-black ensembles with motorcycle boy. All in an attempt to lose her good girl image. That’s who you should be calling out. So do us all a favor and STFU.

  • sweetness

    She is still incredibly beautiful. Wow with minimal make-up and her hectic’s unbelievable how stunning she is.

  • mmsic

    How sweet it is when Angie mentioned Brad’s name.Music to my ears.Oh la la!

  • Jones

    To Laranjen @ #199 – At least their combined ages equal twice your IQ. Both Brad and Angie were asked about their past in interviews and they answered the question. This usually happens in interviews. Especially since both their lives have changed in a big way for the better. Angie has become a citizen of the world and Brad has found his causes as well (Make it Right Foundation) loves Angie, has the family that he’s always wanted and is a contented man. Sure beats sitting on a couch getting high and hiding out from his former dull life and marriage. Sounds like to me they’ve both moved on just fine. Maybe you should consider doing the same.

  • gracie

    Ha ha, you sound like a sour puss. The tabs talk about her life 24/7, 365days in a year and she doesn’t have the right to set the record straight after all the lies written about her? You better get used to hearing the truth. Angie is right. She can shout it from the roof top if she wants, a lot of lies are written about her life everyday and she has never responded to them, this is the only time she talks to her fans and the public, what better way to let those gullible trolls/haters hear the truth from her. She is telling all the haters out there, yes, I have done a lot of things to myself when I was younger, even though, I never hurt anyone but myself, I have pulled myself through and I’m in a better place in my life now. That is a remarkable achievement coz not everyone is that honest or can achieve all that she has accomplished after all she has been through. Look at Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Anuston etc, some in their 40s and 50s and if they’re not into drugs it is alcohol, these people are still making the same mistakes over and over. Angie should be commended for her honesty and for her achievements and not hate on.

    ha ha @ 11/22/2011 at 8:12 pm

    Geezz braindead she was asked about her past life and she answered honestly. Do you think people like you and the haters will like it when she’ll avoid that question then you would have another reason to talk non stop about her denying her former bad image in HW.. so stop your s t u p i d and r e t a r t e d comment!!! You don’t like AJ but you are going from site to site looking for her thread what a crappy life you got!!

  • anustin

    while Maniston is forgotten,brad’s baby momma busy helping and lookin delicious.

  • k

    I admire her ,she used to be very unhappy when she was younger because of her family issues but she managed to turn all that pain into something beautiful by giving all her love to those who needed it like her kids. she is an inspiration


    Lol, Fanistons are just jealous. Maniston can’t talk about her stupid pygmea gigolo of a boyfriend cause first he doesn’t inspire those lovely thoughts and second, that nasty homewrecker shut her trap cause she is too scared Heidi will unleash the true about those two losers.

  • lurker

    jared what happend to my comments,this is crazy useless trolls are allowed to write vile shi* but fans comments are missing

  • She is so real…

    What I admire about her is that she comes across so real in interviews. I think when you are honest and not trying to pretend, it shows. She answers so intelligently without “one liners” and cliche words. Of course, there are those who follow the Enquirer mentality that will never forgive and forget. If Lindsay Lohan finally wakes up and turns her life around, those people would never let go of her past either.
