Angelina Jolie may be raising a family now, but her extracurricular activities weren't always wholesome. In a preview of a '60 Minutes' interview airing this Sunday, Jolie reveals to correspondent Bob Simon that she went through some difficult moments early in her life. "I went through heavier, darker times and I survived them. I didn't die young ... So I am very lucky. There are other artists and people that didn't survive certain things ... people can imagine that I did the most dangerous, and I did the worst for many reasons, I shouldn't be here ... too many times where you came close to too many dangerous things, too many chances taken too, too far."

Jolie didn't get into the specifics of what went on during that dark period, but she did add that those days aren't completely behind her: "I still have that side of me ... it's just in its place now ... it belongs to Brad. Or ... our adventures."

Jolie's last role (not counting the voice work she did in this year's 'Kung Fu Panda 2') was in 'The Tourist' in 2010. On Dec. 23, she'll make make her directorial debut with 'In the Land of Blood and Honey,' which tells the story of a romance that takes place during the Bosnian War.

The full '60 Minutes' interview will air this Sunday night.
