Angelina Jolie’s former caregiver reveals star’s disturbed childhood
Cis Rundle who watched Jolie for eight years revealed she “carried” her to the hospital when she struggled with Anorexia
Angelina Jolie suffered from anorexia and self-harming during her teenage years in Los Angeles, her former caregiver said, speaking on record for the first time ever, Radar Online website reported on Thursday.
Cis Rundle, the family friend who watched after Jolie for eight years, revealed that she “carried” the superstar to the hospital when she was struggling with Anorexia, in one of her extreme self-harming episodes.
“It was one of her stages. She didn’t stay, it got worked out.”
Rundle claimed the 39-year-old had a tendency towards self-harming behaviors as a child. She told Radar Online that Jolie loved to dip her fingers in candle wax.
“She just liked that little bit of pain. She liked that edge,” Rundle explained.
Rundle claimed that Jolie was socially awkward during her high school years.
“She didn’t really like Beverly Hills High School. They used to call her ‘Ubangi Lips.’
“They made fun of her because of her lips and the girls were mean to her. She has these broad shoulders and long legs, she moved like a gazelle.”
In addition, Rundle explained Angelina’s scandalous kiss with her brother Jamie at the Oscars in 2001.
“The day she kissed Jamie at the Oscars, it was the first day [their mother] Marcheline was treated for cancer. They left the hospital together and got ready together,” she said.
“They only ever had each other. They had a very tight relationship with each other and their mother.”
Marcheline died of ovarian cancer at age 56 in January 2007.
Jolie married her long-term boyfriend and father of six Hollywood actor Brad Pitt in France in late August. The power couple tied the knot in a secret wedding, to which Angelina’s father Jon Voight was not invited.
