Though the world may now know her as an angelic — and sane — mother of six, In Touch has learned that, behind closed doors, Angelina Jolie is just as strange as ever. “She tries to hide it, but she has a crazy side to her that’s beyond just being quirky,” an old friend reveals. “In the end, she just can’t hide the crazy.”

Though she’s no longer cutting herself the way she used to as a troubled youth, the friend says that Angelina is still fascinated by blood. “When Angelina’s kids get cuts and scrapes, she saves their discarded bandages in a large jar,” the friend reveals to In Touch. “She thinks she’s being edgy and artistic, but to others, she just seems weird.”

Also weird is Angelina’s often compulsive behavior. “She locks herself in the basement every day and exercises for hours,” the employee shares, adding that she uses those endless workouts as a way to escape her family. “No one is to bother her during that time.”
