In a harrowing, real life drama that rivals any of her movies, Angelina Jolie, admits to News of the World that authorities in a foreign country she won't name uncovered an elaborate plan to abduct the actress.

"It was in a small village. I won't say where, or with whom, but some gangsters planned to kidnap me and extort a massive ransom, " Jolie confesses to the British paper. "I was warned at the last minute, and managed to escape, luckily."
