"I went through heavier, darker times and I survived them," Jolie explains. "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."
She declines to go into detail, saying: "You just ... too many times where you came close to too many dangerous things, too many chances taken too, too far."
But has she lost her edge?
"I still have that side of me ... it's just in its place now ... it belongs to Brad. Or ... our adventures."
The CBS news show talked to Jolie on location in Budapest, where she filmed her upcoming Bosnian love-and-war film "In the Land of Blood and Honey." With that creepy kissing-brother, vial-of-blood, Billy Bob Thornton-phase behind her, Jolie has focused on balancing career and family -- now that she's got six children with Brad Pitt. The glamorous Earth parents recently visited Vietnam so adopted son Pax could see his biological grandmother and get in touch with his roots. But, naturally, everyone's talking about how Jolie should be force-fed a pizza.
