Angelina Jolie's former bodyguard claims she's "totally psycho."

The man - who would only be identified as Bill - worked for the Oscar-winning actress at the start of her relationship with Brad Pitt and insists she's nothing like her do-gooder image.

He said: "Angelina has a public and a private persona. In my opinion, the real Angelina is self-centred and a control freak. She has no patience at all. She doesn't do things out of the kindness of her heart. And she's totally psycho ... she screams and yells a lot, then walks away."

Bill also alleged Jolie - who raises 6 children with Pitt - would take her anger out on her partner and their kids, the number of which was unknown when Bill was working for them.

He told In Touch Weekly magazine: "She would disappear into her suite for hours leaving the staff and Brad to deal with the children. She would punish them with silence. I think she could be abusive at times in a mental way."

While Pitt and Jolie - who officially got together in 2005, soon after his split from ex-wife Jennifer Aniston - enjoyed "spontaneous sex" at the start of their romance, their relationship has allegedly fallen apart so much they often sleep in different bedrooms.

Bill blames their faltering romance on the fact Jolie doesn't really trust Pitt and always needs to find out what he's been up to.

The bodyguard added: "She'll call him from the set to interrogate him. His face goes white, and he just stares at his feet. When Angelina's yelling becomes unbearable, Brad will put her on speaker and walk away from the phone. Angelina will hang up and continue calling until one of the staff picks up."
