Knifeplay in Bed
Angelina has always had a fondness for knives with a bit of history, but she has also disclosed how knives worked their way into her first sexual relationship. "Nothing ever felt real and honest enough. And so because I had knives around... early on in my first sexual relationship, I got knives out and had a night where we attacked each other. It didn't hurt, it was cold, and it felt so primitive and it felt so honest."
Angelina has admitted that, throughout her life, she has had an intense dislike of being hugged. She has said, "Growing up, I had a thing about people hugging me, even my mother...I'm holding my breath now just talking about it."
Signed in Blood
Angelina wed Billy Bob Thornton in 2000, and the couple made a rather baffling pair during the entirety of their public union. Alarmingly open about most details in their relationship, one nugget that can't go overlooked is the couple is said to have signed their wills in blood in 2001.
Locked and Loaded
Angelina has admitted to not being the stereotypical gun-control celebrity. She has said, "Brad and I are not against having a gun in the house, and we do have one. And yes, I'd be able to use it if I had to. I could handle myself."
In 2012, 'The Sun' reported that Brad bought Angelina a $400K shooting range as a wedding present, because "Ange clearly finds shooting an aphrodisiac." Although Brad denied the rumor, he did make sure to say "she's a really good shot by the way."
Angelina and S&M
Angelina has had a fascination with S&M, likely dating back to the early sexual encounters with knifes in bed. She has said, "You're young, you're drunk, you're in bed, you have knives; s--t happens."
Angelina was also filmed in a weird video that hit the internet in 2008, in which she explains the beauty of a S&M relationship and how "it comes from that real place."
Years before she ever got engaged to Brad Pitt or married to Billy Bob Thornton, Angelina wed her 'Hackers' co-star Johnny Lee Miller in 1996. In lieu of a bridal gown, Angelina chose to wear black leather pants and a white shirt emblazoned with the groom's name in her own blood.
Angelina has stated that seeing a funeral at a young age greatly affected her, and it led her to have future aspirations as a funeral director.
“When I was younger, I went to a funeral, and I didn’t think it was enough of a celebration of the life of the person. I thought I could do better. I wanted to study, so I got a home course when I was about 14. I did a mail-order degree.”
Angelina and her older brother, James Haven, have somewhat of an oddly close relationship. Most memorably, Angelina and James locked lips at the 2000 Academy Awards, a moment that the public deemed "Worst Celebrity PDA" in a MSN.co.uk poll in 2013.
To drive the weirdness home, James has gone on record to call Angelina the "perfect woman in (his) life." “Any woman has to go through two filters, me and then my sister. I’m a perfectionist by nature. Then, because I’m so close to Angie it’s like I’ve already got the perfect woman in my life and it’s hard for anyone else to live up to that.”
Space Is the Place
Angelina has reportedly bought a seat on Sir Richard Branson's planned Virgin Galactic trip to space. Leonardo DiCaprio has gained the most print for his role in the unthinkable Virgin Galactic mission, but Angelina, Ashton Kutcher and Branson are all said to have paid up to make the maiden voyage as well.
Speaking of high-flying adventures, Angelina is a licensed pilot. She is limited to a single-engine plane and can only fly clear skies, but she can still pilot an aircraft.
During her time shooting 'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider' in Cambodia, Angelina fell in love with the people and the land of the Southeast Asian country. After serving the nation with dedicated social work, the Prime Minister of Cambodia granted Angelina honorary citizenship in 2004.
The seven lines of numerical tattoos on Angelina's left arm depict the longitude and latitude coordinates of the birthplaces of Brad and her six children. She added the seventh line, 35° 19′ 38″ N / 96° 55′ 30″ W, to signify Brad's birthplace of Shawnee, Oklahoma.
Father and Daughter
Angelina's famous father is the legendary actor Jon Voight, although their relationship has been strained throughout much of Angelina's life. Voight went public with concerns of his daughter's mental heath in 2001, after she adopted her son Maddox from Cambodia and while she was married to Billy Bob. In 2009, after eight years of estrangement, Angelina reconciled with her father thanks to the support of Brad.
They may be the most high-profile and fashionable couple in the world, but Angelina told 'Total Film' that her family with Brad Pitt and their six children is a "very normal, very grounded home." Dismissing any misconceptions about celebrity glamour, Angelina said, ''The great thing about having a bunch of kids is they just remind you that you're the person who takes them to go poop!''
Greatest Hits of Angelina and Billy Bob
An entire scroll of wild Angelina facts could be chalked up to her relationship with Billy Bob. Among the greatest hits are:
The couple often wore lockets around their necks containing each other's blood.
Upon divorcing, 'The Sun' reported that Angelina demanded the return of five vials of her blood, so Billy Bob couldn't curse her.
Angelina surprised Billy Bob with a grave plot as an anniversary gift.
Billy Bob disclosed, "I wear her underwear a lot when we're away. And she wears mine."
During a televised red carpet interview, the couple revealed that they had just had sex in the limo on the way to the awards show.
