Today's Nepotism News

What famous actress who is the daughter of another famous actor recently offered this anti-drug message according to the UK Mirror?

“I remember taking LSD before I went to Disneyland. I started thinking about Mickey Mouse being a short, middle-aged man in a costume who hates life. Those drugs can be dangerous if you don’t go into it positively - I gave them up long ago.”
It's Angelina Jolie! As most people know, Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie (Girl, Interrupted, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) is the daughter of Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight (Midnight Cowboy). Her brother James, who caused consternation when he and Angelina kissed each other on the mouth at the 2000 Oscars, is also an aspiring actor. Their mother, Marcheline Bertrand, was also an actress, appearing in films such as The Man Who Loved Women and Lookin' To Get Out.

According to the Mirror (a very reputable source), the always-charitable and ever-adopting Angelina says the one drug she hated the most was marijuana, because it made her giggle too much.
