Angelina Jolie admits that she got too thin this year while mourning her mother, but is still disappointed in the media for focusing on her weight.
“The thing that’s disturbing is that instead of people saying, “This looks like a person that’s actually dealing with something, probably from emotions,’ they say, “Does she fit into skinny jeans and look thin?’” Jolie said.
“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,” she said.
That kind of loss is something I am not ready to understand. Everyone deals with heartache in different ways. Thankfully for Angelina, she had someone to help her through it. Here she is recalling how wonderful Brad Pitt was during that trying time.
“He is just a great friend and when my mother passed, he was so great,” she said. “He sat with me and held [my mother's] hand. After she passed away he spent the night asking me and my brother about our mother and got us to tell funny stories about her.
“He focused on all the love and joy we were fortunate enough to have had,” Jolie said. “He was extraordinary.”
