Fans of Angelina Jolie have been worried about the actress for months as she looked very skinny in recent outings. As it turns out, their concerns might not be unfounded after all.
According to Aceshowbiz, the “Maleficent” star may be suffering from osteoporosis, and her actor husband Brad Pitt is upset about the toll Jolie’s busy schedule may be having on her health. Additionally, Jolie may also become “anorexic” as she now only weighs 79 pounds.
The “World War Z” actor expressed fears that simple house activities like playing with the kids at home could lead to a fracture for Jolie.
Pitt’s concerns are not exactly baseless, as Jolie previously underwent an operation in 2013 to remove one of her breasts in a process called “double mastectomy” to reduce risks of contracting breast cancer. She then had an 87 percent chance of developing the disease which she blames on a “faulty gene.” Her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, passed away from breast and ovarian cancer in 2007. Her grandmother also died of cancer.
Gossip Cop earlier refuted a report that Jolie’s skinny physique may be caused by a “hunger strike” she initiated for herself to raise awareness about the starvation that Syrian refugees are experiencing in the Middle East and Europe. As a UN Ambassador, Jolie is very passionate about major humanitarian issues and is doing her best to bring problems related to the refugee crisis into the mainstream.
The news of Jolie suffering from osteoporosis and anorexia also comes after weeks of speculation that the “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” co-stars are mulling over filing a divorce.
Jolie will be busy in the coming months as she has taken on the role of visiting professor in the prestigious Centre for Women, Peace and Security at London School of Economics. She will be joining former Foreign Affairs Secretary William Hague in the institution, where she will be helping students gearing for their Master’s degrees.
