Angelina Jolie is shedding pounds like a madman, according to a new tabloid report, and unlike many anorexic, waifish celebs, it has zero to do with vanity.
It's all about making a political statement, says a source.
The 36-year-old U.N. goodwill ambassador, who travels the globe meeting the poor, "puts herself on fasts to make statements for the children she visits."
"She says, 'If they can't eat, I can't eat,'" the source adds. "She does different cleanses from around the world. It's very dramatic, but that's how she is."
Angelina Jolie: Wasting away to nothing?
The actress, currently promoting her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, has Brad Pitt worried about her health, according to other insiders.
"He's worried about her and has made her see a zillion doctors," the alleged experts say, but despite the concerns of some, "they just tell her she's fine."
So ... is she really starving herself in that case?
Probably not. But she can't hide the fact that she's looking thinner these days ... and she certainly can't hide the crazy, according to made-up nannies.
