Angelina Jolie has always been at the center of some controversial situations, especially when she was younger. She may have revamped her personal and public life to that resembling a saint, but she was anything but a saint when she was younger. And for the first time, her former caretaker Cis Rundle is revealing everything about Angelina’s childhood – the dark secrets, the incest rumors, the drug habit, and the self-harm.
Rundle [who started helping out with Angelina when she was just three years old at the behest of Angelina’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand] spoke to Radar and revealed that Angelina would indulge in dipping her hands in hot wax at a very young age, explaining, “She just liked that little bit of pain. She liked that edge. She was a wild child. I knew she was always going to be a force to be reckoned with.”
Um, I’m all for crazy Angelina stories, but she was a kid and liked playing with hot wax – is that such a big deal? Many kids do crazier things on a regular basis.
However, Rundle also gives some insight into Angelina’s teen years, saying that she didn’t fit into Beverly Hills High School because of her looks. She explains that at one point, she even took Angelina to the hospital because of her ‘anorexic stage’, explaining, “I carried her into the hospital. She was in that anorexic stage…it was one of her stages. She didn’t stay, it got worked out. But Marcheline got scared that she wasn’t eating.”
Rundle also explains away the incest rumors that started when Angelina famously kissed her brother, James Haven, at the Academy Awards when she won Best Supporting Actress. Rundle reveals that day was actually the first day that Marcheline was being treated for cancer, and that James and Angelina had spent all day at the hospital with her. She explains, “Nobody in the world knew that they spent the day in the hospital. It was like, ‘Look where we’re at now.’ But the world saw something incestual. It was meant to be ‘Here we are.’ They only ever had each other. They had a very tight relationship with each other and their mother.”
Rundle claims that she’s incredibly ‘proud’ of Angelina and honored to get to know her, but does she think Angelina will be pleased to know that she’s gone blabbing to the tabloids about her past? She explained away the incest rumors, but accusing her of self-harm and anorexia isn’t exactly in her best interest, is it? She comes off as someone looking to make a quick buck, which is unfortunately what most of the people in Angelina’s life have also tried to do.
