When Angie wasn’t busy censoring reporters recently, she did speak up about why she looks so thin. I thought she looked slim and elegant, as an accomplished actress, UN delegate-type, and global candidate for sainthood should!
At the NYC premiere of A Mighty Heart Wednesday night, Jolie, 32, told reporters that the reason she’s been shedding pounds is because she’s been grieving over the death of her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died of ovarian cancer in January.
“I’ve always been lean and this year I lost my mom and I’ve gone through a lot,” said the actress, who is currently in New York with boyfriend Brad Pitt, 43, and their children, Maddox, 5, Pax, 3, Zahara, 2, and one-year-old Shiloh.
“I have four kids and I finished breastfeeding – it’s been hard to get my nutrition back on track.”
Jolie also said that people assumed it was vanity and because she was trying to fit into her skinny jeans. How come this didn’t happen to me when my father died? Dude, I didn’t gain or lose weight – I remained at the same level of pudge I had always been at. I want an emotionally devastating experience to make me starve myself so I can wear black stovepipe jeans and a punky belt and a striped t-shirt and an asymmetrical haircut so I look like a hipster from Brooklyn. They get all the hot ass. I look like your fat retarded brother got mainstreamed and gets a discount from stocking shelves at night at Target.
