Angelina Jolie’s turn on the red carpet at the Oscars last week made headlines across the globe.
Almost a week on, picture of Angelina Jolie’s jutting right leg is still generating talk – but now for different reasons.
Dr. Drew appeared on The View yesterday where he said Angelina Jolie looks dangerously malnourished in the eye-catching image.
As the picture was flashed up on a screen behind him, Dr. Drew warned that women should not regard the actress as an ideal of beauty on account of her remarkably skinny figure.
“She’s malnourished,” Dr. Drew claimed, before reiterating: “I just see malnutrition.”
“We should not look at that as an ideal of beauty, even though she might be a beautiful woman.”
Dr. Drew’s comments came after he expressed the same verdict on her “dangerously” skinny frame during his own, self-titled show earlier this week.
Fox presenter Bill O’Reilly is another who has weighed in on the matter.
“Is it just me or is she looking mighty slim these days? Emaciated even? I was kind of taken aback. Look at the arms on her,” he said on The O’Reilly Factor the day after the Oscars.
Bill O’Reilly went on to say Angelina Jolie, in his opinion, was sending out the wrong message to her fans with her rail-thin physique.
“Something’s going on here,” Bill O’Reilly said.
“She is slight. Let’s hope it’s nothing unusual.”
In November 2011, Grazia magazine reported Angelina Jolie survives on as little as 600 calories a day, which is the equivalent of two bowls of cereal with milk.
“Angelina has been known to start her day with little more than a spoonful of coconut oil and a handful of cereal,” a source told the publication.
“The worrying thing is that she is so busy, she often forgets to eat.
“Sometimes she’ll skip lunch altogether or will just grab a few almonds and some gummy bears while she’s on the go, or will have a protein-based shake rather than anything more substantial.
“Then dinner could be something like a lean steak and a glass of red wine.”
Angelina Jolie’s fluctuating weight has been well documented, with her slim frame becoming painfully thin during difficult emotional times in her life.
She was forced to defend her waif-like frame in 2007, when her weight plummeted following the death of her mother Marcheline.
At the time, Angelina Jolie said: “I have always been lean, and this year I lost my mum 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.”
