Healthy shape: A slightly fuller-framed Angelina back in 2007
gasps from the crowd when she appeared on the red carpet during a Hollywood awards ceremony last week.
Even by her own super-slim standards, the A-list actress looked positively waif-like in a black Jenny Packham gown that highlighted her bony physique when she attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards with long-time partner Brad Pitt. Last night, a source who worked with Ms Jolie, 36, said that the mother of six often forgets to eat – and when she does, she survives on little more than a handful of nuts and berries.

During a recent photoshoot, the Tomb Raider star ate just a few almonds and picked on fruits including acai, goji, blueberries and chokeberries.
The source said: ‘She requested bowls of the berries, and that is all she ate during the day, even though there was a full buffet lunch on offer.
‘She said she was so busy with the kids that she forgets to eat, and that when she does sit down she prefers all her fruits and vegetables to be organic. She particularly likes exotic berries and was talking about how they were packed with nutrients.’
Acai berries are the latest fad in Hollywood as they are said to boost the metabolism and promote weight loss.
