In a recent analysis of Brangelina, all four children were picked apart and defined by their age. But what about the heads of the household?

Specifically, Angelina Jolie and her recent weight issues?

James Haven says that his sister has lost her famous curves because she is still mourning the death of their mother, who passed away in January.

“Angie has become very thin because she’s grieving,” Haven told the British publication The Mail on Sunday. “It’s even difficult for her to eat. I keep saying to her, ‘Don’t forget to eat.'”

Marcheline Bertrand provided stability in her children’s lives after separating from Jon Voight in 1976, shortly after Angelina’s birth. As a result, her passing has been particularly hard on Haven and Jolie.

“But you know she doesn’t pay much attention to food anyway and she’s been going through a process of grief like me,” Haven said.

“She has not wanted to eat, nor has she been able to.”

We know it sounds like he was referring to Keira Knightley, but Jolie is still the focus here.

Part of the reason for the new mom of Pax Thien has a loss of appetite may stem from the fact that she associates cooking with her mother’s memory.

“There was very much that home feeling when we came back from school,” Haven said. “Angie and I would walk in and comment on how we could smell things cooking and baking in the kitchen.

“Or she’d be in the middle of cooking and pick up a carrot and teach us about the vegetable or the fruit so that it was visual as well. Angie is now the same with her kids.”

Indeed, you’ll never be able to fool Maddox or Shiloh Nouvel into thinking a cucumber is a watermelon. Just go ahead and try it.
