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.”

    JP fans, wouldn’t we want to hear Anuston brag a little about her past including when exactly she stole mr stumpy from Heidi, all the family members she never talks about and what she really feels about her mom? What she does with fugly CH when stumpy is not around and with other bffs. How many bottles of vodka she drinks a day. Lots of skeletons there. She will need lots of courage to speak out without her PR team protection but since she is chickeeeeeeen and scares easily, I’m not holding my breath.

  • ha ha

    ange has made no mistakes, i never said she did, like i said ,you dick heads should just get your facts straight! doing drugs arent a mistake but they are used to make someone look cool when they talk about them. then for more melodrama she adds she shouldnt be alive! none of you d ouches see its bragging for street cred even tho she has it already, so she has money already, does that mean she doesnt want to make more? Dumbasses, dont attack me for being sharp and onto her!

    I think you are absolutely breathtaking.
    Please come around more often, we miss u.
    Too much hiding out.
    America loves you.

    The usual suspects will try and make something negative about this story even though it should be used as a lesson to all of young Hollywood. Look at her life now. She is amazing and doing amazing things but sites like Huffington Post and Hollywood Life and rags like In Touch and L& S and Star can not and will not ever let it go. They are so negative and such hens that it is sad. Angie is the best and we JP fans know it. She looks amazing and Brad is a lucky man.

  • QQQQ

    AJ GLOWS in the video. Hopefully, the majority of the interview will be about her writing and directing instead of on her past that everyone already knows about. But “journalism” is DEAD, so I don’t have much hope.
    Can’t wait to read the Clintalina interview though!

  • Lurker

    To ellie,

    Who made you judge and Jury. Whatever happens to live and let live. Why are you so concerned with what Angie and Brad do in their own bedroom? Is it because you wish you were as bold as Angie? Green is definitely not your color. Angie is not into fooling anyone. She has always been honest about her past, if you can’t handle it , that’s your problem not hers.

    If anything Angie talking about her past is inpiring to any young girl struggling with their own demons. Angie was able to overcome a troubled past and become a well loved and respected partner, actress, humanitarian. Can’t say the same about you now can I? You still the same vile, bitter woman who after 7 years is still upset over a divorce that was not yours.

  • wfb

    Awww, trolls are having a breakdown. Poor, poor trolls NOT

    Angie’s soooo beautiful in that interview.

  • Dakota

    Love this woman! I can’t wait to watch this interview.

  • Brad

    Will you marry me?

  • lurker

    Angelina worked her way up,like any other person,i doubt her father did a thing,trolls need better materials

  • lurker

    poor pathetic troll,so tabs and losers like you can talk about her but she has no right to talk about how she grew up from the past,this hen is really losing her mind lol,stay away from the computer

  • lurker

    hope fans who will be at the taping on the 5th will give us an update

  • mmsic

    @ellie’: You think Angie is losing sleep because you wouldn’t believe her interview? Get real woman!!! She doesn’t know you,and she no cares about you.Jared put up Angie’s interview for her fans not for some demented,shallow defender of the elongated chin woman like you.

  • lurker

    ellie seems so angry…becareful dear..take medicine…and go to sleep…

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    I think the trolls would prefer MANiston to talks about her yoga & pilates.

  • QQQQ

    PT.. Just saw the match. Roger was just bringing it. ButttDigger didn’t know what to do. I am surprised he didn’t call for the trainer. Uncle Tony or Sebastian was trying to coach him but that didn’t work.

  • Andamentothat

    Lovely Angie! She is eloquent, honest, caring and is true to the causes she support. Adore her :)

  • MJ

    @ha ha: You misunderstood what Angie said. She did not say she shouldn’t be alive because of what she did in the past, she meant that some people like you thinking that she shouldn’t be alive because of her past. Anuston fans are angry about Angie talking about her past when they are the one who always bringing her past thinking it was just yesterday. It’s good that Angie talking about her past, maybe it will help those kids who have the same problem as she had, that it’s not too late yet to turn their lives to good. You, Anuston fans can learn from Angie being a mature woman not on your idol Anuston whom who still acts like a little re-tarded girl. Grow up people.

  • lylian

    Although I agree with all the fans’ comments that Angelina is the ONLY celebrity made to talk about her “dark” past, I think the fact that it is brought up actually is GOOD for Angelina.
    For a start, it immediately makes her more relatable to ordinary people. Great or small, which of us haven’t taken stupid self destructive acts to ourselves? Which is quickly followed up by a WOW moment – when we say, “look how far she’s come”. Her past is emphasised because of her achievements built from that.
    Sure, many spiteful people will want to tear people like her down. It is sanctioned now, to speak our most mean thoughts through the anonymity of the internet. Some call it an outlet, some call it humour. But the truth of what Angelina does and what she represents is understood by all – she represents HOPE.

  • mmsic

    @ellie’: First off all,Angie was asked questions during an interview session,she answered honestly.Secondly,you are here mouthing off how Angie is a bad example for the young and for those who did the same thing.Obviously,you did not comprehend what she said.I guess,it’s hard to understand anything when your brain has shrunk to a level of an idiot’s brain,and add to that stupidity as well.This is my only respond to TATA!!!

  • lylian

    I’m not going to ask anyone NOT to respond to Ellie. But I’d like to tell you that Ellie is quite insane. If you’ve never interacted with someone who is quite insane, you’ll find out what that’s like when you interact with Ellie!! Do not expect logic, or rationality. Just lots of rants and wild flailings of the mind.

  • Evie

    Angie you are in my heart. I love you!

  • dianad1968



    Calm down ellie, you sound jealous of the horse. LOL. I know that pic is ten times sexier and more provocative than naked Ticky sitting like a dog. When you’re boring, you are just BORING. Don’t you see how happy Brad always looks? LOL

  • irene

    @ha ha:
    Michale K practically has something for EVERYBODY, including old tv hasbeens, I do not need to post his funny articles here nor anywhere. Anybody who has read him knows this, he is like a blog comedian. Now, if you sy that your peeps are the posters in dlisted, well, now you already described yourself, cray-cray.

  • Nora

    She articulates with so much eloquence, even her dark times seem not too dark.

  • dianad1968



    lylian, ellie is so cray cray, that she inadvertently provides lots of comic relief. I LMAO just at the mental image of this idiot becoming madder every second, frothing at the mouth,and poundingaway at the computer keys. She may soon smash it, because Angie said that her “bad self” is for Brad. Isn’t life grand? LOL

  • dianad1968

    @ha ha:


    Who gives a f*ck what MK has to say? Do you think Angie’s world is going to stop this bully makes fun of her on a blog? I am 99.99% sure Angie doesn’t know who MK is or care about what he says about her. She is freaking Angelina Jolie. She leaves that to Ticky to accost celeb bloggers in parking lots.

  • miho

    i love Angie

    I don’t understand some of the people posting here. If you don’t like Brad and/or Angie, why waste your time to come here and post?

  • ab

    jen in christmas break up with justin
    and justin come back to girlfriend for jen is boring
    angie and brad still together and big family

  • irene


    cannot stop saying this about this ellie person…
    she claims not to be obsessed with AJ, and s/he has lots of posts in her threads… more than many fans who come and go.
    Weird. She, like other haters probably does not have much of a satisfactory busy life. Time to look for another hobby when you love to come to a site where
    1) you are not welcome, but you actually entertain us.
    2) you are expressing only your negativity, not that’s sad.

    ellie and other haters:
    I haven’t been in a ticky thread for ages, even if I am curious to read the comments, I do not like to go and read them much, there is no point, she is boring, her appeal is he triangle stuff, and her fans can’t even keep her threads alive for long.
    It is kind of masochistic of you but if, after all you decide to stay here, you are welcome, since your activity provides more traffic to the JPs.

  • irene

    I love thumbing down the mean/aggressive posts

  • dianad1968

    @ha ha:

    The last time I visited MK’s zoo, was over a year ago, and the bullies were nasty then , and I can’t imagine it’s changed in any way shape or form. Like attracts like. Those people, during their childhoods were the bullies who terrorized kids at the playgrounds and in their schools. They are now terrorizing people on the internet. They are unhappy, vicious little people whose lives give them no happiness. They wouldn’t recognize objectivity if it bit them on the a*s. But of course you would fit right in there…you and them are the dregs of society.

  • Inspirational

    First off, this woman is the most beautiful woman inside and out! Angie’s story reminds me of x factor tonight when Simon was telling this male singer how he inspired thousands of people by sharing his story of a similar situation to Angie’s and coming out of it stronger. If he inspired thousands, than Angie has inspired millions with being never ashamed or afraid to share her story. Not to forget the millions she has helped through her various charities like Jolie-Pitt foundation and her humanitarian work. Angie, you show the world what it truly means to be both human and superhuman at the same time. A beautiful inspiration!

  • http://n/a angierocks

    awww Angie you are unique and special and you deserve all the best.She has found her soulmate,love of her life in Brad.

  • RachelSun

    I am so sick of that characterization of her kiss w/ James.Tthere was nothing sexual or “intimate” about that kiss. Only Americans think a kiss on the lips is always sexual. Many cultures family member’s kiss on the lips. There is nothing sexual or incestuous about it. Both Angie and her brother have full lips which they pressed together. I witnessed that kiss.There was no tongue or even an open mouth. Yet, I knew there would be a controversy because of the sexual hangups Americans have. Here it is almost 10 years later and even 60 minutes thinks it was “intimate”. This characterization is total bullsh$it.

  • tish

    hahaha so are we going to reply to a couple of hundred hens when Angie answers the rest of the interview Sun night.. NADA Please.

    If Angie was hated like the hens think why do her and Brad have a full house
    with Fans lined up 3 blocks away screaming like Elvis Presley came back from the dead. Obviously they have alot of Fans .

    When is Ticky going to stop hiding or when seen with weedyck or
    Justin Theroux who was Heidi Bivens man for 14 yrs ontill Ticky
    offered up her loot and JT fcuked Ticky and Heidi at the same time .???
    Whats up with Ticky (Anustin) being allowed to lie and fcuk another
    womans man??????? It’s not all right to do that. Ticky is a sleaze.
    JT or little dyck is just a little fa.r.t in the mitt going nowhere fast.

    LMFAO..did you see wee-dycks pic in Peoples mag?
    Ticky (Anustin) paid big bucks so ppl could say who the eff is that little sh1t????????…As if….. Sexiest man alive..Give me a break LOL



    Too true Rachel. Being Angelina’s fan is rewarding but ts also frustrating, there are agendas people have with regards to her, to present her in a certain light, to call up a ‘past,’ that really isn’t much of one as Hollywood starlets thru the years go (see drew Barrymore, Melanie Griffith, Lindsey lohan, Demi lovato, etc) I would hope they give time to her vast accomplishments, her humanitarianism, her world influence, her Oscar winning career, her record smashing box office, etc. I have to tell you, it’s quite sad that, while thrilled initially at the 60 minutes piece, I don’t have faith that even a news,magazine as esteemed as they are, will forgo the faux sensationalism. ..and praise the real woman.

    Yeah, the bagel surprised me, too, but I’ll give BDB credit for not claiming injury or sickness. He got his ass kicked and said as much.
    “Today he played too good for me, and that’s what happened,” Nadal said. “Just accept that.”
    There hadn’t been a 6-0 set between the two former No. 1s since Nadal routed Federer 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 to win the French Open final in 2008 for his 12th win on clay in the series.
    “Sometimes it just derails for you, like it derailed for Rafa today and it did for me at the French Open,” Federer said. “Everything you try doesn’t work for the guy who is down; for the one who is up, he’s taking more and more chances, all of that is working.
    “Next thing you know, you’re facing a debacle.”
    (ROTFLMAO! This would be the 2008 French Open final where Roger got skunked 6-3, 6-1, 6-0…)
    An interesting side note – the series now stands at BDB 17, Roger 10. 12 of BDB’s wins have been on clay. 4 of Roger’s wins have been indoors, 2 have been clay. But…BDB’s never been Roger indoors. Subtract the clay matches and Roger leads 8-5. That kind of says it all about BDB – get him off the red dirt and he’s very beatable.

    Ignore the troll. MK rags on everybody about everything. Hell, he’s ragged on the Pope before…and yes, I laughed… Earlier in the day he had another post on Angie making fun of a UK tabloid story that said she only ate 600 calories a day. I notice the troll didn’t share that though.

  • Linda,Use to be Lynnl

    I can not believe these haters. I am reading the same article as you guys and I did not read anywhere of her saying that she was into drugs. Growing up Angie was involved in many activities. We do know she graduated from Beverly Hills High at the age of 16. I also know she got involved in learning how to be a boxer, took fencing lessons, She certainly knows how to handler a bad HARLEY, I do believe she knows how to fly an airplane and I do mean a real airplane and the girl is a #1 A List actress and they dont come any badder she is #1. The girl also went to college in new york and she is taking classe in International Law even now. I admire her because she will tell you what she is all about and I think she is very proud of who she is today. I think Angie always knew where and what she wanted to do or be but had to find it for herself. She was nothing like Lohan. I dont ever remember reading of her being arrested, having and accicent driving her car or out in clubs drinking. The only thing we know about this young lady is what she has told us. Some of it could have been bragging to make people think she was so tough, like we all did in high school. cannot not wait to see the interview. When is it? I dont want to miss it. Goodnite all and Happy Thanksgiving.

  • divagirl715

    Oh my gorgeous amazing Angelina, what a web you have weaved sweet girl. The sheer reality of your expanding existence shocks, motivates…and even scares some people. I hope this interview helps that odd group of people, whom clearly never understood you (therefore hating you), to see you are just a girl with a “dark” side…who takes risks. In my world, this is so common I find it hard to find the words to describe this “odd group” or how to even relate to what it is they are so desperately trying to find through disliking, or even hating, you.

    You are simply magnificent. As are all of your true fans; as strong, independent, fearless women are what truly scares and intimidates most people. Thank you Angie, for giving us strong women a beautiful loud voice. Brad Pitt is the luckiest man that ever lived.

    Some people are so obsessed with Angelina Jolie. This proves the great power she has that she makes some people stay up late just to watch her again.
