These Facts About Angelina Jolie Are So Unbelievable. Can’t Believe She Have Done That Before!

Everybody knows who Angelina Jolie Pitt or simply Angelina Jolie is. Jolie is a super successful actress and filmmaker. She is also known as a humanitarian who already adopted three children from different country.

Before reaching great success and marrying Brad Pitt, Jolie struggled a lot in life and few people know that story. Here are few of the many emotional battles and struggles Jolie encountered during her younger years.

As a teenager, Jolie found it difficult to emotionally connect with other people, and as a result she self-harmed, later commenting, "For some reason, the ritual of having cut myself and feeling the pain, maybe feeling alive, feeling some kind of release, it was somehow therapeutic to me."

She struggled with insomnia and an eating disorder.

At age 20, Angelina Jolie had used "just about every drug possible," particularly heroin.

Jolie suffered episodes of depression and twice planned to commit suicide—at age 19 and again at 22, when she attempted to hire a hitman to kill her.

At age 24, she experienced a nervous breakdown and was admitted for 72 hours to UCLA Medical Center's psychiatric ward.

Jolie has had a lifelong dysfunctional relationship with her father, Jon Voight, which began when he left the family when she was less than a year old.

We all go through a tough time, what separates us is how we deal with our issues during those times. I think she really had a rough life and who could blame her. Part of growing up is having supportive parents which I don't think she had. What matters is she made it out and is doing a lot better now.
