Angelina Jolie continues to struggle with her weight loss. After months of speculation, recent photos show that Jolie’s weight has dropped to a frightening new low. Will Brad Pitt be able to intervene before it is too late?
Photos released by OK! Magazine feature the Maleficent star on a recent outing in London. Jolie wore layers of grey while she went out for dinner, hiding the majority of her body. Experts, however, looked at the photos and claim that the actress is around 79 pounds.
As fans will recall, Jolie had a double mastectomy three years ago after discovering she was likely to develop cancer. According to Radar Online, Jolie’s mom, Marcheline Bertrand, died in 2007 from a long battle with breast cancer.
Shortly after her mother’s passing, reports surfaced that Jolie had lost an incredible amount of weight. In fact, Jolie addressed her rapid weight loss and admitted that she lost weight because she was dealing with a lot of different issues at the time.
“I have always been lean, and this year I lost my mom and I’ve gone through a lot. 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,” Jolie explained. “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 is unknown if Jolie’s current weight loss was sparked by anything tragic in her life. However, if the experts are right and Jolie is down to 79 pounds, then she will need to turn things around quickly before it is too late. Can her family convince her to change and start living a healthy life?
So far, it appears as though family efforts have not paid off. According to Celebrity Health Fitness, even Jolie’s estranged father, Jon Voight, has tried to talk to Jolie about her weight. Unfortunately, Jolie has refused to talk to her father about her personal issues.
Even Jolie’s husband has tried to scare her into changing her eating habits. However, the threat of a divorce has been unable to convince Jolie to get the help she desperately needs.
Considering Angelina Jolie’s rapid weight loss, there is a strong possibility that she suffers from anorexia. While this has not been confirmed, a former babysitter of the Jolie-Pitt household has since revealed that Angelina was treated for anorexia as a teenager.
Despite the anorexia rumors, Jolie has yet to officially address the weight loss scandal. Instead, she has repeatedly stated that she is healthy and tries her best to remain healthy for the well-being of her kids.
Jolie and Pitt first met each other on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The two dated for several years and officially exchanged vows back in 2014 in a gorgeous wedding in southern France. Recently, the two stars appeared together on the big screen in the movie By the Sea, which she wrote and directed.
When she opened up about her marriage after working together on the film, Jolie admitted that she tries to be a good wife by learning new skills.
“We have more moments where I say, ‘I’m going to be a better wife,'” Jolie explained. “‘I’m going to learn to cook.’ And [Pitt] says, ‘Oh, honey, know what you’re good at.’ But I do like, ‘No, no, no, I’m going to get this wife thing down.'”
Jolie and her family are currently living in London while Pitt works on his newest project, an untitled WWII spy drama. As far as Jolie is concerned, the actress is getting ready to star in Disney’s Maleficent 2. A release date for the film has not been set.
