About Angelina Jolie's 'semi-crusty phase' in Tompkins Square Park



As Scoopy writes in this week's issue of The Villager:

We were surprised to learn, recently, ... that none other than Angelina Jolie also went through her own semi-crusty phase, hanging out in the park and smoking pot ... During the L.E.S. Slacktivists/veterans' "adoptathon" outside Christodora House last month, Lara Mascara ... told us how she used to run with the young Jolie. "We were friends of the band Sick of It All," she said. "We called ourselves the Alleyway Crew." The members each had a Sick of It All dragon tattoo. "Angelina Jolie was skinny, no figure — just straight, she had no boobs — hair in her eyes," but did sport her trademark big lips even back then, Mascara recalled. "Her dad didn't pay child support. ... She was just not going to high school, like all of us. She was known as Angie."

She was kind of cute back then...

Look at her now and I just can't imagine her listening to Sick Of It All. I'm sure she "grew out of that phase". Too bad.

And she had the tattoo(s) removed. I found some bikini/modeling shots of her at age 16. I thought about posting them. You know, to increase traffic!

First noticed her in the film Hackers. Saw that for free, courtesy of Village Voice when they were still handing out free movie passes on a Tuesday before their latest issue comes out (yeah, I was one of those people who would line up outside the Voice building for the free movie passes. good times, good times.)

As for increasing traffic, i can understand that, much like that tumblarity thingy. Speaking of which, I'm back tumbling -- couldn't resist, fallen out of the wagon. Apologies for being inconsistent.

Hackers! A fine 3 a.m. film to rival, say, Johnny Mnemonic.

Glad you're back Tumbling...

She does have tats still..a chinese dragon on her arm, some weird phrase on her back or something, and i think some other crap. I'm not too surprised by her "crusty days"..she seemed kinda nuts before she started adopting all the kids and becoming "brangelina." That whole vial of blood thing with Billy Bob and all..Plus, she was a little too convincing as Gia the junkie super model.
I've decided to invite her to the St. Marks Church for a brewski! ANGIE! ANGIE!

She strikes me as if she's still a little nuts...But maybe in a good way.

Eden Bee said...

Yeah, I agree. I kinda WANT to hate her and Brad Pitt just because of who they are in the media..but they are probably somewhat cool and strike me as the types that sit around with all their money, smoking a bunch of weed in between adopting kids and making movies. Brad Pitt has been consistently pretty damn good in almost everything i've seen him in.
