Since falling in love with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie has settled down – a bit. The 36-year-old beauty no longer draws attention to herself for her outlandish deeds, but more for her large brood of six kids and her good works on humanitarian projects. And while gone are the days when Jolie wore a vial of blood around her neck or drew attention from the media by kissing her brother James Haven too intimately on the mouth in public, she reveals on Sunday’s “60 Minutes” that she is still a bad girl.

“I still have that side of me… It’s just in its place now… It belongs to Brad. Or…our adventures,” she tells correspondent Bob Simon.

The Academy Award winner sat down with Simon in Budapest on the set of her new film, “In the Land of Blood of Honey,” and addresses the attention-getting events of her youth, her life now, and her first time as a director of a feature-length film.

“I went through heavy, darker times and I survived them,” Jolie tells Simon. “I didn’t die young, so I’m very lucky. There are other artists who didn’t survive certain things.”

When pressed as to what those things might be, she says, “Nothing I want to go into a lot of detail about, but people can imagine I did the most dangerous and I did the worst and for many reasons I shouldn’t be here.”

“You just think there’s too many times where you came close to too many dangerous things, too many chances taken too, too far.”

In the video clip released by CBS News, Jolie doesn’t elaborate, so fans of the actress will have to tune in to find out what else she reveals about her life.
