Angelina Jolie’s friends are not worried about her health and weight, despite yet another tabloid story attacking the actress’s physical appearance. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we’ve exclusively learned the truth.
“Shrinking Angie: Thinner Than Ever!” blares a headline in the latest issue of Star. The accompanying article alleges Jolie is at her all-time lowest weight in the wake of her divorce from Brad Pitt. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “After she split from Brad, she threw herself into work, plus she has six kids to look after. She says she will forget to eat and often ends up having just a few hundred calories a day.”
The outlet’s questionable source goes on to claim Jolie’s diet consists primarily of “hot water and lemon” and “grapefruit and strawberries,” adding, “She smokes to cut down her appetite. I doubt she’s getting enough nutrients.” The seemingly phony insider concludes, “Angie has definitely been putting her body on the back burner. She’s a beautiful woman, but she could afford to gain a few pounds.”
Of course, the actress has in fact a had a stressful year, and she’s also been very open about her past health issues, but the tabloid’s take on the situation isn’t accurate. Jolie isn’t barely eating, nor does her inner circle fear her health is deteriorating. Gossip Cop checked in with a mutual pal of ours and the actress, who exclusively assures us the magazine’s story is “false.”
It’s worth noting, this bogus narrative about the actress’s well-being isn’t new. Gossip Cop recently busted Star for wrongly reporting Jolie’s friends feared she was suffering a “cancer crisis.” We’ve also called out the magazine’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, for alleging on several occasions that Jolie is dying. This latest article concerning the actress’s physical condition is equally untrue.
