Angelina Jolie Autobiography Book Offers Reportedly Up to $50 Million (VIDEO)
Angelina Jolie's autobiography looks to be in the works. They have been all the rage recently Morrissey's Autobiography releasing very successfully and Courtney Love and Jennifer Lopez announcing theirs are on the way as well.
Jolie's autobiography isn't the big news, as we know that many fans around the world would be interested in her story, it is the money being rumored that is offered that is making the WOW factor.
There is a bidding war underway for the publication rights for Jolie's story rumored of upwards of $30 to $50 million according to the The Daily Star.
At least three US publishers are battling for the rights to her autobiography with one source saying: "Whoever gets her will be sitting on a gold mine. "Her book is guaranteed to top the bestseller lists in virtually every country on the planet and even an advance of that size would be recouped within weeks."
A close friend of Jolie said: "She has always wanted to do this and believes the time is now right." The friend added that since Jolie announced she had undergone a double mastectomy in February "she has never known such peace and fulfilment in her life. There are demons in her past but she is in a place mentally and spiritually where she feels comfortable enough to write about them honestly and put them in context. "No issues - apart from those that might damage her children's privacy - will be taboo."
The book would have to sell ALOT of copies to recoup that kind of money, but clearly the publishers think it can happen.
