Last night, Harper’s Bazaar US revealed Angelina Jolie and their December cover star. In the candid interview, where she talks about parents, dealing with her emotional scars and moving on, she also touches on life as a teenager, where she revealed she “wasn’t popular”.
“At school I wasn’t that popular person; I was a punk. I loved leather, PVC, and fishnets,” she says in the interview. “Those were my three favourite fabrics in my early 20s. I remember the first time I wore PVC pants. I was waiting for an audition, sitting in the sun in L.A. By the time it was my turn, my pants had fused together. I didn’t get the part. But I loved those pants.”
The Maleficent star, who lives a notoriously private life, also went on to talk about her Cambodian home.
“When you have a loud mind, as I do, you go to places that quiet you, and I find that in the desert, or in the jungle in Cambodia,” Jolie explains. “When I first went to Cambodia, I thought people would be hardened by having experienced so much war and suffering. But in fact it was the opposite. I found them to be full of grace and fight and life. It’s a home and a headquarters for my foundation. There were physical challenges, though. We had to clear nearly 50 land mines before we could live there.”
