A topless picture of a carefree Angelina Jolie posing with a white horse is expected to sale for a staggering £35,000 when it goes on auction.

The never-before-seen image, taken by renowned photographer David LaChapelle, shows the then 25-year-old Hollywood actress playing with the animal while showing off her array of tattoos.

She is seen with her eyes closed throwing her head back as the horse nuzzles into her breasts.

Her infamous 'Billy Bob' tattoo, which paid homage to her former husband, is clearly visible. It has since been removed.

The image will go under the hammer as part of the Wild Side of Photography sale at London auction house Christie's next month.

Also included in the collection is a black and white photograph of the Mr and Mrs Smith star posing as husband and wife alongside her fiancé Brad Pitt for Steven Klein in 2005.

The image which appeared in W magazine before the couple were officially an item is expected to raise £8,000-12,000.
