Angelina Jolie’s food habits have fascinated the tabloids for years. In 2011, In Touch Weekly claimed the actress’ bizarre diet includes food “obsessions.” Allegedly, the Tomb Raider star eats just one low-calorie food, such as soup or green tea and nuts, for days on end. At other times it’s just red wine and small portions of protein. Looking at her super lean frame, it’s clear she probably doesn’t eat enough. Not the role model you should be looking at.
