Angelina Jolie ‘often forgets to eat’
Always-svelte Angelina Jolie has been snapped looking particularly thin recently, and reports say it’s because she “often forgets to eat.”
“Angelina has been known to start her day with little more than a spoonful of coconut oil and a handful of cereal,” a source tells the magazine. “The worrying thing is that she is so busy, she often forgets to eat. Sometimes she’ll skip lunch altogether or will just grab a few almonds and some gummy bears while she’s on the go, or will have a protein-based shake rather than anything more substantial. Then dinner could be something like a lean steak and a glass of red wine.”
The source further says that friends and family are worried about Jolie. “She simply loses her appetite,” the source says. “Everyone has been begging her to eat more and she is trying not to get any skinnier, but unfortunately she just doesn’t seem to be putting on any more weight.”
Jolie has spoken out about shedding pounds during stressful times in the past. In 2007, after her mother died, Jolie appeared frail and responded to rumors that she was overdoing her dieting.
“I have always been lean, and this year I lost my mum and I’ve gone through a lot,” she said. “Instead of people saying I look like a person dealing with something emotionally, they assume it’s because I want to fit into skinny jeans. I want people to understand who I am as a person is not somebody that’s trying to look thin, but just trying to work through a very difficult year.”
It’s unclear if Jolie is currently in a “difficult year.” Perhaps the compounded stress of raising six children while anticipating the release of her directorial debut is enough. Jolie’s Bosnian War love story, “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” opens in theaters on Dec. 23.
