Angelina Jolie Might Write A Tell-All Memoir (& We Can't Wait)

Angelina Jolie is probably one of the most fascinating women alive, partly because she manages to be simultaneously famous and mysterious (oh, and gorgeous). But, all that may change soon, if rumors about an upcoming memoir are true. According to "friends" close to the actress, Jolie is set to sign a $50 million deal to write a juicy tell-all.
What will be covered (assuming it actually happens)? Virtually everything. There are several publishers vying for the book, but according to L.A.-based media analyst Mike Raia, in order for it to be successful, "they'll have to believe she isn't pulling any punches and is being honest about her checkered life."
And, that means baring all — her short-lived marriage to Jonny Lee Miller, her bizarre relationship with Billy Bob Thornton, her thoughts on Jennifer Aniston, and even her relationship with Foxfire costar Jenny Shimizu, of whom she once said, "I would probably have married Jenny if I hadn't married Jonny." Nothing, aside from things that might be harmful to her children, would be off the table, according to sources.
Jolie has yet to publish anything close to a memoir, but in 2012, she wrote the foreword to her ex-husband Billy Bob's memoir, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts. Jolie's tried to keep her personal life fairly private, so we'd be surprised if this rumor panned out — though we'd certainly be first in line to pick up a copy. (Oh No They Didn't)
