A series of unseen images of Angelina Jolie modeling as a 16-year-old have emerged, and they prove that even the renowned actress and burgeoning director has a cringe-worthy past.
The pictures have been unearthed by the Mirror, and they show the mother of six wearing a scarf and trying to look alluring while posing with a headdress, and in a bikini, too. In fact, the Oscar-winning actress even adopts a rather awkward pout while posing for the camera, too.
Jolie posed for this photoshoot all the way back in 1991, and the man who snapped her was celebrity photographer Sean McCall. You can check out an array of these pictures below.

This isn’t the first time in recent weeks that photos of a young Angelina in awkward poses have emerged from her past. In fact, towards the end of last year, a variety of images of Jolie from 1994 promoting her role in the film Hackers were found and then promoted across the internet. These pictures showed a 19-year-old Angelina Jolie in a leather skirt, and even posing topless with her back to camera.

Jolie has previously admitted that she suffered numerous problems during this period of her life. When she was just 14-years-old, her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, allowed her older boyfriend to move into their home.
Meanwhile she also suffered from depression, and in the past she has explained, “I had that problem early on when I couldn’t feel a bond with another human being. Mostly it was all about trying to connect.”
Jolie was estranged from her father, legendary actor Jon Voight, while she also dropped out of several schools, including the renowned Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute.
Despite these issues, Jolie has since managed to forge out an impressive career as both an actress and filmmaker. This has included winning an Academy Award for her performance in Girl, Interrupted, while she has also received two Screen Actors Guild Awards and three Golden Globe Awards.
More recently she has turned her hand to directing, overseeing the likes of In The Land Of Blood And Honey and, more recently, Unbroken. And rather than being scoffed at, these pictures are a stark reminder that even the most glamorous of stars have to start somewhere.
