Angelina Jolie: How I avoided a horrible life
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

Angelina Jolie has revealed how she escaped the "shallow" life many Hollywood stars live in a candid new video.

The 36-year-old actress also discusses how she stays grounded in the clip, saying she constantly reminds herself that her family is the most important thing.

Angelina has undergone a complete transformation since she shot to fame in the 1990s.

She was once in the headlines for all the wrong reasons — passionately kissing her brother, wearing a vial of blood around her neck and openly talking about drugs and sex.

But in the past 15 years, Angelina has become Brad Pitt's doting partner, a mother of six, a United Nations ambassador and a great philanthropist.

Brad and Angelina raise six children, Maddox, nine, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

They are not married, but have spoken of their intention to tie the knot soon to keep their kids happy.

Your say: Do you think Angelina Jolie has succeeded in living a "normal" life?
