She’s been called “the most beautiful woman in the world,” and has often been a magnet for controversy, but Angelina Jolie remains at the top of her craft.
Restless in her role as a movie star, the 36-year-old has turned to directing with a film she wrote about the Bosnian War, In the Land of Blood and Honey.
In a recent interview airing last night, Angelina spoke to 60 Minutes‘ Bob Simon about her career, her family, and the “darker times” she’s put behind her:
“I didn’t know it was going to be so sensitive,” she said of her directorial debut, which details a love story between a Muslim woman and a Serbian jailer.
She also talks about her dream of being a funeral director (seriously), but the obligatory soundbite that will get the most people talking came a bit later.
Discussing her many humanitarian efforts, she admitted that her “dark side” has not fully receded. It’s just dormant. “I’m still a bad girl,” the star says.
“I still have that side of me. It’s just, it’s in its place now. It belongs to Brad. Or it belongs to our adventures.” Read into that however you like.
