Growing up as a wild child, Angelina Jolie began experimenting with drugs at an early age. By the age of 20, she confessed to doing "just about every drug possible, cocaine, ecstasy, LSD and, my favorite, heroin." She credited her first husband, British actor Jonny Lee Miller, her co-star in 1996's "Hackers," for helping her give up drugs.
