Black-and-White Photos of Angelina Jolie as a Teenage Model

Angelina Jolie had a leg up in show business due to her famous parents, actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. If that wasn't enough of a head start, Angelina's godparents are Jacqueline Bisset and Maximilian Schell. While many would assume her connections ensured that her young life was fairly easy, that wasn't the case. Jolie struggled with problems such as an eating disorder, self harming by cutting, drug abuse and other troubles. At age 24 she had a nervous breakdown and had a brief stay in a psych ward. Jolie says what ultimately turned her around and gave her stability was adopting a child. She told USA Today, 

"I was just being a young girl who was experimental, bold and a bit nutty. I was absolutely self-destructive. I think a lot of young people in this business lose their way. You don't know what is of value. You don't know where you are. And you know something's wrong, because it isn't life as it actually is. It's like living in some warped reality. I knew once I committed to Maddox, I would never be self-destructive again."

Jolie may not have had her life together at the time this collection of thirty black-and-white photos of her as a young model were taken, but she obviously had the beauty thing cornered.

Just because you do not like her look is no reason to insult her. Slim women with large breast deserve respect and acceptance just like everyone else.

She had the facial beauty thing cornered for sure, but she was so skinny she looks nearly cadaverous in some of them. How this emaciated look ever became established in our society as something beautiful to be aspired to is absolutely beyond me. These models that look like skin and bones are just disturbing - there's nothing sexy or desirable about them whatsoever.
