Remember that brief but colorful marriage to Billy Bob Thornton? The matching vials of their blood?
Today, after six children and a loving, stable relationship with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie has come a long way from her days as a Hollywood wild child.
"I went through heavy, darker times and I survived them," the Oscar winner, 36, tells 60 Minutes in a show airing Sunday.
"I didn't die young, so I'm very lucky. There are other artists and people who didn't survive certain things."

Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter, Amanda Brumfield, was sentenced to 20 years in prison Thursday after being convicted of aggravated manslaughter of a child in May, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
In October 2008, Brumfield was babysitting her goddaughter, 1-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia, who died while in her care in central Florida.
Brumfield, 32, was initially charged with murder in the child's death, but was found not guilty.
"I miss Olivia just as much as anybody does," she said at Thursday's sentencing before breaking down, according to the Sentinel.

While Casey Anthony's murder trial played out in front of the nation last week, another, quieter case involving a dead child was being tried in the same Orlando courthouse.

How did a baby – Brumfield's goddaughter, no less – die while in her care on that day in October 2008?

The estranged daughter of Billy Bob Thornton had been convicted of aggravated manslaughter in the death of a friend's baby daughter, but was found not guilty of first-degree murder.
The verdict was handed down last Friday to Amanda Brumfield, 32, in the same Orlando, Fla., courthouse where Casey Anthony is being tried for the murder of her daughter, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Brumfield had claimed the death of 1-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia, while in her care as a babysitter one night in October 2008, was an accident – and that she had simply fallen a short distance out of a playpen.

Jimmy Kimmel did the same thing a Canadian radio host did – dared to call Billy Bob Thornton a movie actor – only this time the reaction was much less caustic.
During an interview earlier this month involving Thornton's band, The Boxmasters, Thornton mumbled answers to host Jian Ghomeshi and insulted Canadian audiences, comparing them to "mashed potatoes without gravy." The band got boos and catcalls when it appeared in Toronto as the opening act for Willie Nelson.
During Tuesday's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host asked: "Billy, is it OK I mention that you're an actor? I don't want to get off on the wrong foot here."
Thornton explained he got rankled in Canada because the interviewer, Jian Ghomeshi, wasn't supposed to discuss Thornton's acting. "If they look you in the eye and say, 'We promise,' then that's the deal," he said. "If I tell some guy who lied to me, in my face, to not say something, it doesn't make any sense to me."

Don't call Billy Bob Thornton an actor! That is the lesson learned by a Canadian radio host during an interview earlier this week.
Thornton, who has appeared in more than 50 films and won an Oscar for writing Sling Blade, became combative during an interview on CBC radio while promoting his band Boxmasters with his bandmates.
The star mumbles answers to host Jian Ghomeshi and gives nonsensical responses. A rep for the actor tells PEOPLE that Thornton reacted out of displeasure with the line of questioning: "He simply elected not to engage the interviewer because of the direction of the interview from the onset," Thornton's rep says."The tour is going great."
