Young Angelina Jolie: 16-Year-Old Angie Loves Fencing, Boxing, Swords

Posted: Updated:

Before Angelina Jolie was raising kids with Brad Pitt and writing powerful, conversation-changing op-eds in the New York Times about her preventive mastectomy, she was a teenager. A teenager who loved fencing and boxing.

BuzzFeed dug up this awesome old footage of teenage Angie discussing her boxing and fencing skills, and she is adorable. We learned that she boxed but never got in the ring because she didn't want to "get [her] teeth knocked out." Also, she "could never do team sports" and collected swords she found frequenting antique shops with her mom.

Aww, 16-year-old Angelina Jolie! How were we not friends?
