Angelina Jolie recently made an appearance on the red carpet in promotion of her newest movie, Kung Fu Panda 3. While the actress was all smiles during the premiere, her alarmingly skinny body has sparked new speculation regarding a possible eating disorder. Is Jolie anorexic? Is there another motivation behind her drastic weight loss?
In the photographs released by the Mirror, Jolie wore a short black dress during the event, exposing her ultra-skinny arms and slender frame. Jolie did not wear a whole lot of makeup for the red carpet appearance and instead decided to go with a plain look.
In speaking to the media after the premiere, Jolie admitted that she hadn’t prepared much for the event. The result of which has led to speculations that Jolie might be battling an eating disorder.
Based on a report by Celeb Dirty Laundry, Jolie’s weight has gotten so out of control that her husband, Brad Pitt, has asked her to gain some weight. That being said, is there another reason behind Jolie’s recent weight loss?
According to Health Aim, Jolie’s work with starving women may be contributing to her own drop in weight. Apparently, Jolie has a lot of sympathy for these struggling women and has starved herself in order to bring more attention to their cause.
That being said, Angelina Jolie has been known to lose weight when preparing for a role, making it possible that her recent weight loss is due to an upcoming part. When the Tomb Raider star was working on Unbroken, her co-star, Miyavi, who portrayed a camp guard in the film, admitted that Jolie intentionally starved herself for the sake of her character.
“She was so determined. I was also surprised how skinny she got. You know, she was not eating much. I felt so bad I was the only one who got fat during filming,” he stated.
Whether or not this is true has not been confirmed by Jolie. Whatever the truth behind Jolie’s weight loss, the actress is definitely not looking her healthiest. Regardless of the cause, fans can only hope that Jolie begins to take her own health into consideration and starts to gain a little bit of weight.
Meanwhile, Jolie’s appearance on the red carpet for Kung Fu Panda 3 was not solely about her. In fact, the movie marks the first time some of her children have appeared alongside her on a major movie project. For their parts, Jolie and Pitt’s children, including Pax, 12, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, 9, and Knox, 7, provided animal sounds for the film.
“They were kind of shy. They don’t really want to be actors, but I didn’t want them to miss the opportunity. They came in, and they had a lot of fun with it,” Jolie shared.
While Jolie was alone on the red carpet, her thoughts were not far from Pitt. In fact, the actress went on to discuss her husband’s recent success and Oscar nomination for his part on The Big Short.
“I’m always proud of him because of all the work he does, and how he balances his family life and work. I love him, I’m proud of his film. I’d be proud either way, obviously,” she stated. “It’s lovely for him, it’s lovely for the film, it’s an important film – I don’t need that [Oscar recognition] to be proud of him.”
At the same time, Celebuzz is reporting that Jolie is currently working on her newest project for Netflix, titled First They Killed My Father. The movie is scheduled for a 2016 release and is currently finishing up production in Cambodia.
