Video of Angelina Jolie on heroin surfaces

Before Angelina Jolie was a goodwill ambassador, a 17-minute video was made of her just after she took a hit of heroin. describes the video (see below), which was first released to the National Enquirer, as showing a “thin, ragged, and sore-covered Jolie paced the floor of her squalid NYC apartment, picking at her pock-marked skin and chattering frantically after scoring a delivery of heroin and cocaine.”

According to The Daily Mail, convicted drug dealer Franklin Meyer says he shot the video in 1999 with Angelina’s consent after she contacted him, requesting that he bring heroin and cocaine at her Manhattan home. Meyer added, “At the time, I had just bought a video camera and decided to bring it along. When I arrived, I just gave her the drugs and then she gave me the money.”

While speaking worriedly on the telephone to her father, Jon Voight (from whom she was estranged for years), the gaunt and sickly-looking actress can be overheard saying, “You know, I don’t want this to ruin our relationship.”

    Oh man I want to see this! I bet she looks even hotter back then!

  2. steve c • July 10, 2014 @ 3:20 AM

    i think you guys might not want to say she’s on heroin,just because some drug dealer says she is. and pacing because she seems worried is no proof,either. you should retract that before you get sued.

    I think everyone of us has made some bad choices in our youth or done things we are not proud of but Angelina has totally turned her life around and is doing great and admirable things now. I think it is really disgusting to bring up past garbage from years ago just to make a few bucks or grab some headlines!

  4. Connie • July 10, 2014 @ 9:42 AM

    If it is true then that was then this is now and the woman does so much good for the world lets just put it in the past. She has moved on.

  5. Arlene • July 10, 2014 @ 9:47 AM

    So what??? I did more drugs than Charlie Sheen in my early twenties. I don’t understand why we as humans enjoy going back into peoples’pasts.
    If Ms. Jolie was doing drugs now, AKA Rob Freaking Ford, then I would have concerns being an ambassador for the UN.

    Seriously, who cares….

  6. Adrienne • July 10, 2014 @ 9:48 AM

    Every one of us has a past, and she is no different. She has admitted to drug use before, and on more than one occasion. This drug dealer is looking for his minute of fame, and using her to get it. She has changed her life around, and done a lot of good for a lot of people in this world. This information is irrelevant to the person she is today.

  7. Shirley • July 10, 2014 @ 10:14 AM

    I hope Angelina sues the pants of everyone involved! What a scumbag that Meyer. He admitted he gave her the drugs so he ‘s a drug dealer……can’t they put him in jail for this?
    We can’t see very much of her apartment but it’s not a squalid apartment. Meyer is a piece of trash.
    It’s what people end up doing with their lives that counts and Angelina made a few mistakes in her youth like a lot of people, especially in show business, but she has done so much and she ‘s still quite young!

  8. dana • July 10, 2014 @ 10:22 AM

    Get prepared for a lawsuit. She paces and talks on the phone, I do it often and never did any drugs. She is in a normal apartment that in NO way resembles a drug den, she is in NO way frantic. I am unsubscribing from your trash because of this slander. She is a mother, shame on you Tribute. Pathetic attempt with no evidence of anything.

  9. andrea • July 10, 2014 @ 10:45 AM

    I agree with Dana on July 10. She could be tired, scattered and who knows, maybe she took something. But this isn’t a drug den, nor do we know what the situation is. It is a pathetic attempt to slander a person who prefers privacy and who has grown up to be the person she aspired to be, probably.

  10. Sandy • July 10, 2014 @ 10:46 AM

    So refreshing to see everyone coming to Angelina’s defense! I am not going to bother watching the video, I have so much respect for her and what she does in the world, this kind of sensationalism belongs in the gutter.

  11. Julie • July 10, 2014 @ 10:53 AM

    This is just awful. She’s having a personal phone conversation and pacing. I don’t see how we can assume she is on drugs. Everyone in my family paces on the phone.

  12. Samantha Lauzon • July 10, 2014 @ 10:53 AM

    Angelina has made no secret of her “troubled” past. It’s one of the reasons I’ve admired her so long. She admitted to drug use saying it started around the time she did Gia. I’ve always admired and respected her for her openness, her honesty and her bravery. I can only hope this isn’t hidden from her children and she uses it as a reason to have an open and honest discussion with regards to drug use and the likes.

  13. Maureen Hylton • July 10, 2014 @ 11:29 AM

    She’s done so much for the world.
    Don’t turn back her courtain.

  14. lol • July 10, 2014 @ 11:43 AM

    I also pace when I talk on the phone. Oh no! I must on coke and heroin!

    If we’re going by wiki knowledge, heroin would make you stay in one spot since it calms you down to such to the point of almost not moving at all.

    Someone’s gonna get sued big time. Have fun in court!

  15. Laura Burke • July 10, 2014 @ 11:57 AM

    So what if she took part in self-injurious behaviour. She didn’t hurt others in any way. And the last 15 years have proven her to be a remarkable woman. Perhaps she had to go through that dark time to become the person she is today.

  16. nei • July 10, 2014 @ 12:39 PM

    come on plse! and if you look real close you Rob Ford in the background

  17. janet • July 10, 2014 @ 1:06 PM

    I can not believe how low people stoop to post this! This is not news. it is history.. and it is a gross encroachment of her privacy. The person that taped this and sold it should be jailed and Tribute/TMZ etc. should NEVER pay for this shit or show it on TV or their sites.. makes me sick. She or anyone does not deserve this. just because she is a celebrity does not make it OK. disgusting!

  18. Trevor • July 10, 2014 @ 1:47 PM

    I’m not going to watch this video either, I agree completely with “Sandy on July 10, 2014 10:46 AM”. Based on what I’ve read in the comments it sounds like the headline has sensationalized the video and made it sound worse than it is. Why let the trash that made this video try to bring a good person down with something they did 15 years ago.

  19. Lola • July 10, 2014 @ 2:31 PM

    Not news! Everyone has a past. If Angelina didn’t go through what she has, she probably wouldn’t be the amazing humanitarian she is today. Leave her alone and focus on the positive! Sad and pathetic that this is your “breaking news”. And paying such huge fees for this kind of garbage is only promoting more harassment of celebrities and the famous. Unforgiveable. Going to unsubscribe to your trashy newsletter.

  20. Rob • July 10, 2014 @ 3:06 PM

    Just goes to show everyone’s human. She looks like anyone else without makeup. She also never stops talking (or moving around). Whoever is on the other end doesn’t get to talk at all.

  21. ashlee • July 10, 2014 @ 3:10 PM

    i wish some celeb would hire an investigator to go through the lives of enquirer employees and did up their pasts.

  22. Mary • July 10, 2014 @ 3:14 PM

    Not happy with Tribute bringing up old Garbage. What she represents today is far more important.

  23. Dirk johnson • July 10, 2014 @ 6:25 PM

    What a great young lady ! Behind the Scenes of someone who is normal , cares., paces the floor like the rest of us does! And chats on the phone in a private moment.

    No is going to turn their back on this great lady and husband

    Sorry. For you and I think there should be a major lawsuit against your trash

  24. Rodney Newton • July 11, 2014 @ 2:04 AM

    I noticed that it is not a dirty drug den like others. I do not have Showtime network that I can watch Golden Globe winner, Jon Voight in Ray Donovan. The movie GIA covered the same problem as Angelina Jolie apparently had in her personal life. The religious Americans of the United States did not stop Washington State criminals from destroying the justice system this week. Colorado has been selling marijuana to citizens in that state for months. United States is now a banana republic of no importance, like Syria and lawless Iraq.

  25. Ashley • July 11, 2014 @ 6:29 AM

    OK she has already admitted to doing heroine and cocaine etc…

    So this video is just kind of boring.

    Why are people so mad about the video being put out there though lol. It is not going to turn anyone against her.

  26. Lida • July 11, 2014 @ 9:52 AM

    Who cares? I don’t really care for Angelina Jolie anyway, so I don’t care what she did in the past and I don’t care what she does now. There is no one on this planet who has lived a perfect life and has never made mistakes (especially in their youth). The reason why these stories get around is because people like dirt (because THEY are dirt), and the news/tabloids/gossips have an audience. If people stop watching/reading/talking about this stuff, it will stop. START now to STOP!

  27. Dianne • July 11, 2014 @ 6:20 PM

    I call BULLSHIT on that. Angelina doesn’t look stoned. She doesn’t look any thinner then she usually does. She isn’t ragged looking or sore-covered, nor was she picking at pock-marked skin that she does NOT have and she wasn’t chattering frantically. And so what if she didn’t live in a palace at the time. Wow, what a load of bullshit.

    That is a whole of slander going on here and I hope she sues the pants of these creeps.

  28. Louise • July 13, 2014 @ 11:33 AM

    Gone is the past. The future is bright, don’t let anybody try to take it away from you, even for a few minutes. Angelina, you have all my support.

  29. Nora • July 15, 2014 @ 1:58 PM

    You know, it seems to me, the guy filming her conversation was higher than Angelina might have been. He had a strange obsession with filming that sony whatsit so it had that “eternity effect”. He was also strangely interested in the water glass, tape dispenser and other random objects. I think the guy filming was the one shooting up that day.
    I’m not a huge fan of Angelina — but don’t dislike her, either… but I think this video is a just sixteen minutes and fifty-two seconds of pointless intrusion on her personal life.

  30. Brigitte Gholar • August 9, 2014 @ 3:41 AM

    He without sin cast the first stone. In other words check your own skeletons and leave other people’s skeletons alone. One one in this world is perfect we all make mistakes we learn from them on go on living life. That guy is a serious low down scum bag to do something like this. I hope she sues him and TMZ.
