The superstar Angelina Jolie will be heading once more to the Golden Globes as a nominee, this time for her directorial debut of her foreign-language film, "In the Land of Blood and Honey." But before she was a U.N. ambassador and mother of six, the Golden Globes winner caught notice for her wild streak.

Back in 1999, the actress won the Golden Globes award for best supporting actress for her title role in the HBO production of "Gia." The 24-year-old continued to make a splash, literally, at an afterparty by jumping into the Beverly Hills Hotel pool in her sparkling Randolph Duke gown -- and dragging a reporter in with her.

The native to Los Angeles later commented, "What's funny to me is that everyone wasn't jumping into the pool. It's one of those events, and the people in the room are supposed to be free and wild, but everyone is so tame and careful."

Nobody would accuse Jolie of being tame or careful in those days. In 2000, the actress scored a well-deserved Academy Award for best supporting actress for her performance in the film "Girl, Interrupted," and then things got weird.

She kissed her brother, James Haven, on the lips, and further shocked people with her acceptance speech, declaring herself to be "in love" with her sibling. Haven later called that moment "amazing." But he added, "It was totally misconstrued."

Don't expect any such behavior at the coming awards show. The 36-year-old, who has been with A-lister Brad Pitt for six years, said she knew things would change with the adoption of her first child: "I knew once I committed to Maddox, I would never be self-destructive again." She added, "Now I have five more [kids], so I have to behave."
