If the acting thing ever falls to the wayside, maybe Angelina Jolie will reconsider a former goal: Becoming a funeral director.
The 36-year-old Oscar winner told CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday that she had a plan in place if she couldn't find her way in Hollywood.
"It sounds like this very strange, eccentric, dark thing to do but in fact I lost my grandfather and was very upset with the funeral," she said in the interview. "This whole idea of how somebody passes and how family deals with this passing and what death is should be addressed in a different way. If this whole acting thing didn't work out, that was going to be my path."
But Jolie did find herself on a darker path, personally. Before she became known as Hollywood's globe-trotting, Oscar-winning mom of six, it was her wild side that drew attention (blood vials and Billy Bob Thornton, anyone?).
The star says that's now all in the past...unless her partner Brad Pitt's around.
“I went through heavier, darker times and I survived them. I didn’t die young. So I am very lucky," she reveals. “There are other artists and people that didn’t survive certain things...people can imagine that I did the most dangerous, and I did the worst," says Jolie. "For many reasons, I shouldn’t be here."
These days, the actress is more likely to be found toting around tots - or stepping behind the camera for directorial work, as she did with December's "In the Land of Blood and Honey" - than engaging her wild side.
But there's still one person who gets to see it.
“I’m still a bad girl,” Jolie admits. “It’s just in its place now. It belongs to Brad. Or it belongs to our adventures.”
I'll always remember when she was in "Gia". I think that's by far her best movie
Jolie is like a fine red wine. She gets more beautiful everyday. Even with noticable recent weight loss, her beauty is stunning. But put back on a few pounds Angie.
She has grown into a beautiful woman
Angelina is one of the best actresses around....enough of the negative gossip paid for by Aniston's public relations people! Angie can do more than toss her hair!

Can't bury what's already dead and turned to dust. Even when you were living, those last 5 years you had a limp noodle.
