Angelina Jolie: I'm bad for Brad

Angelina Jolie says she still has a dark side - but nowadays she reserves it for Brad Pitt.

"I'm still a bad girl. I still have that side of me," the actress told CBS News, of the wild child image that defined her youth. "It's just in its place now ... it belongs to Brad."

Angelina, 36, opened up on her past in an unusually candid interview with the network's 60 Minutes show, to be broadcast this Sunday.

"I went through heavy, darker times and I survived them," she said. "I didn't die young, so I'm very lucky. There are other artists and people who didn't survive certain things."

The mother-of-six declined to go into further detail, saying: "I think people can imagine that I did the most dangerous and I did the worst, and for many reasons I shouldn't be here. You think of those too many times where you came close to too many dangerous things, too many chances taken too far."

As the daughter of actor Jon Voight, Angelina hit the spotlight early. She appeared in a provocative photo shoot when she was still a teen (above, third photo) and quickly developed a reputation for being a bit of a rebel.

For her first marriage to actor Jonny Lee Miller in 2000, she wore black leather trousers and a t-shirt with his name written across it in her blood. The Changeling star marked her subsequent union with actor Billy Bob Thornton by wearing a vial of his blood around her neck and having his name tattooed on her arm. She is also rumoured to have had a fling with Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger in her youth.

These days, however, Angelina is more preoccupied with being a full-time mum to her ever-expanding family, as well as concentrating on her movie career and prominent role as a UN ambassador.

But she insists her inner bad girl is not gone forever and still surfaces for Brad and "our adventures."
