Top Hollywood actor, Angelina Jolie once admitted there was a time she actually wanted to kill herself after developing suicidal thoughts. She is quoted as saying that she actually gave in to those thoughts and contacted a potential hitman to help her end her life.
According to the “Externals” star, she didn’t want her close relatives to think they could have done something to prevent it, citing that a murder would have taken that guilt away. She said –
“With suicide comes all the guilt of people around you thinking they could have done something. With somebody being murdered, nobody takes some kind of guilty responsibility.”
However, after contacting the person that will do the job, he allegedly gave her a month to think about what she was asking him to do.
“This is going to sound insane but there was a time I was going to hire somebody to kill me. The person spoke very sweetly to me, he made me think about it for a month. And after a month other things changed in my life and I was surviving again” she said to IMDB in 2001 at a promo campaign for “Tomb Raider” where she starred as Lara Croft.
It’s safe to say that the world would have been deprived of a very wonderful actor and mother if she had carried out her wishes in those dark moments of her life.
