The huge impact Angelina Jolie has on men is well known and it is documented in a new book. It seems as an exaggeration but the truth is that Angelina's hypnotic effect drove Mick Jagger to obsession and had him "virtually sobbing" over her!

Author Christopher Andersen reveals that the Rolling Stones frontman would continuously bombard Jolie with calls begging to see her and it was all encouraged by her mother Marcheline Bertrand.

If you wonder how Mick Jagger's obsession with Angelina started, here is the answer: Mick fell for Jolie when she played a stripper in one of the band’s music videos in 1997 and in spite of being married at the time to Jonny Lee Miller and having an affair with her "Playing God" co-star Timothy Hutton, Bertrand "loved Mick for Angie… and felt that he could teach her about fame," the late Angelina's friend Lauren Taines claims in the book.

In excerpts of "MICK: The Wild Life and Mad Genius" of Jagger printed in "The New York Daily News", Mick went after Angelina hard and was infatuated by her wild side even admitting that: "She scares me a little. I like that."

At the time Angelina "used hard drugs, had a fondness for S&M and was a self-confessed cutter."

The book reveals that Jolie initially refused to return Mick’s calls which did little to deter him and only served to make him pursue her more.

"Angelina, it’s Mick. Will you please, please call me?" "Miss Jolie, why aren’t you returning my calls?""Angelina, I have got to speak to you. Call me," were some of the incredibly desperate message left.

The chase continued between them for several years and Taines added that she was amazed at how Jolie was "messing with Mick’s head" and he was "virtually sobbing" on the phone trying to get her to spend time with him.

Even when Mick was ending his marriage with Jerry Hall in 1999, he was still in hot pursuit of Angelina and presented her with a $5,000 pair of earrings. The book alleges that by this stage Angelina was juggling Tim Hutton, future husband Billy Bob Thornton, Nicolas Cage and Russell Crowe.

Unbeleivable story, isn't it?
