If you think the past week has been hard on you -- between the bills being due, that idiot giving you a cold and your [insert something valuable] breaking -- then cheer up, because the most popular actress in the world is probably having a tougher go at things right about now. Angelina Jolie, best known for being Angelina Jolie
(among other things), is probably hoping next week turns out a little more swimmingly after dodging more than one controversial bullet earlier this week.
For starters, her old drug dealer finally got out of jail and decided to cash in on being Angelina Jolie's old drug dealer by talking to the media about how Jolie used to use cocaine and heroin right in front of him, and how he knows she was high on coke when she sat down for a Charlie Rose interview promoting Girl, Interrupted. Watch the interview and let us know if you think she's particularly ... speedy. The larger interview with Jolie's old drug dealer will appear in the newest issue of Life & Style, though there's no word on whether they'll be going with the title, "Things That Happened Years Ago That We Already Know About," or the alternate (which I like more), "Yeah, So What?"
The Jolie madness does not stop there, though, because while ex drug dealers harass the actress, security guards in far-away countries are scamming her out of thousands of dollars. Yup, according to reports, Jolie was conned out of almost $3,000 when she made a deal to shoot her latest Bosnian movie in a certain building with a security guard posing as a building owner. Problems arose when it turned out he wasn't the owner, and that the lease he presented was fake. Further reports speculate that the security guard and ex drug dealer are teaming up for a reality show on Fox next season, but that just might be in our imagination ... for now.
