New footage of Angelina Jolie has revealed the disturbing extent of her past heroin and cocaine addictions.

The National Enquirer obtained never-before-seen footage of Angelina's "dirty drug den", pictured on the US newspaper's cover above.

The 16-minute video shows the Maleficent star visiting her former drug dealer in New York during the late '90s. The dealer, now 68-year-old Franklin Meyer, filmed the actress, apparently with her permission.

"I sold her heroin and cocaine," Meyer told the Enquirer. "One day she called me up and wanted me to drop by her place… At the time, I had just bought a video camera and decided to bring it along.

"When I arrived, I gave her the drugs and then she gave me some money. Her face looked gaunt and she had needle marks all over her arms!"

In the tape, Angelina reportedly confessed secrets about her sex life with then-boyfriend (and future husband) Billy Bob Thornton, revealing that he was "as big as a horse".

"I'm sure she still thinks about Billy Bob's privates to this day," Meyer added. "And if I were Brad, I wouldn't be too happy about it!"

Another tape from 1998 features Angelina rambling: "I've done coke, heroin, ecstasy, LSD, everything. I gave them up long ago."

This isn't the first time Meyer has dished the dirt on his former client. In 2010, Meyer told Life & Style magazine that Angelina was "high on coke" during her 2000 interview with US interviewer Charlie Rose. Watch below to see Ange's skittish behaviour...

Angelina has previously spoken of her battles with drug and alcohol abuse without going into much detail.

"I think people can imagine that I did the most dangerous and I did the worst. For many reasons I shouldn't be here," the 39-year-old told 60 Minutes in 2011.

The Oscar-winning actress has left that wild life far behind, reinventing herself as an award-winning United Nations ambassador, film director and mother-of-six with fiancé Brad Pitt.
