This is going to shock and appall: Angelina Jolie used to do DRUGS. Yes, so shocking. It’s not like she made multiple references to her drug usage over the years, or how she was openly cracked-out for several years in the last 1990s. Personally, I think of those self-harming early years as part of what makes her current incarnation so striking and so inspirational. She was a second-generation Hollywood wild child, a drug user and a mess. And she turned it around when she began traveling the world and working for the UNHCR. And the final death blow to her old drugged-out ways was when she adopted Maddox.
But before all that, Angelina was just a cracked-out wild child in 1998, pacing the floor of a scuzzy “drug den” and talking to her father on the phone. Radar and the National Enquirer have been teasing images taken from this 1998 “drug den” video for more than a week, and now they’ve finally released the old video. Angelina looks rough here, but I don’t think she seems all that cracked-out here. And it doesn’t really seem like a drug den either. According to Radar, this phone call video happened just after her dealer delivered some heroin and cocaine to her. Her dealer is the one who shot the video. Sixteen years ago.
Granted, I’m a Brangeloonie, but all this made me think is, “I miss Angelina as a blonde – she pulled off that hair color.”
