Before she was the other half of Brangelina, a superstar actress, loving mother, or the passionate humanitarian that we know Ange to be today, the Oscar winner went through some pretty dark times.
This footage was recently released for the first time worldwide.
Convicted drug dealer Franklin Meyer claims he shot the 16-minute footage with Jolie’s consent in 1999 after she called him round to her Manhattan home to re-supply her with heroin and cocaine.
Jolie has since described it as a ‘dark’ and ‘dangerous’ period of her life which she was lucky to survive.
In the video, first released the video to The National Enquirer, the Maleficent star paces back and forth in a dingy apartment as she talks frantically on the phone.
The television is on in the background as Angelina appears to be in a state of distress as trash bags and soda cans litter the floor and coffee table.Meyer told the Enquirer: Angie was a client of mine for several years. I sold her heroin and cocaine. One day she called me up and wanted me to drop by her place. That was her way of telling me she wanted me to bring her drugs,’ […]
Meyer claims in the same interview that he would see Jolie two or three times a week when she was in the city, meeting either at her flat or at the hotel. Each time, she would generally spend around $100 on heroin and cocaine, he said.
According to Meyer, she would take the drugs in front of him. ‘It didn’t seem to matter to her who was there.’ On one occasion, he claimed, she was high on coke during a high profile TV interview to promote the 1999 film Girl, Interrupted for which she won an Oscar.
Meyer said Jolie, who at the time was seeing the actor Billy Bob Thornton, her future husband, was also startlingly open with him about her debauched sex life, including Thornton’s sexual prowess, her love of sado-masochism and her lesbian urges.
Ange openly admits she is lucky to have survived this dark time when she was into too many dangerous things and taking risks.
Quite the transformation!
