Angelina Jolie has lived a life of contradictions. Now a goodwill ambassador and one of the world's most celebrated actresses, she's blessed with six beautiful children (and one Brad Pitt), but she was once also a heroin addict from a shattered home who went on to steal other women's husbands. This -- and so much more -- according to the forthcoming bombshell tell-all about the actress, 'Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography,' by the master of such celebrity dirt-fests, Andrew Morton.

Leaked excerpts from the book are fueling so much hype that publisher St. Martin's Press has moved up its release date from Aug. 3 to July 31, says USA Today.
