Angelina Jolie's presence in "In the Land of Blood and Honey," a film she directed but wisely chose not to star in, is both a gift and a curse. On the gift end, it's a megawatt star bringing some serious attention to an incident in our recent history that has either been glossed over, underreported, barely acknowledged or forgotten about completely – the atrocities in Bosnia and Herzegovina that brought ethnic cleansing back to Europe for the first time since World War II. Conversely, there will be those who claim, since Jolie is fabulous and wealthy and drop-dead sexy (besides being a U.N. ambassador and outspoken human rights advocate), that she has no business portraying what is still an incredibly raw part of the very recent past. For the most part, though, Jolie tells a compelling, tragic story, framed inside of an unlikely romance, and pulls it off without pulling any punches.

With a new movie to promote, Angelina Jolie took a rare in depth, on camera interview with "60 Minutes" this weekend and the results were mostly of the vague comment variety that celeb blogs love to speculate on about endlessly. We learn the startling revelation that Jolie was "chubby" as a kid (JUST LIKE REGULAR PEOPLE) and had "big lips." She also alluded to her earlier "heavy, darker times" without explaining any of it (not even that weird vial of blood she wore around her neck circa Billy Bob Thornton). Oh yeah, and she claims "I'm still a bad girl." Riveting. But amongst the mostly empty piece, the folks over at CBS did manage to get one interesting morsel of news out of their interview.
