She looks beautiful to us, but since having children, the star has the same worries about her figure as anyone else
Angelina Jolie‘s one of the world’s most gorgeous women but like most of us, it seems that the 33-year-old is plagued by insecurity when it comes to her looks.
She is struggling to come to terms with her post baby body after having twins Knox and Vivienne last July.
Despite appearing to have snapped back into shape when she went out in public again three months later, Angelina feels she’s changed.
‘After giving birth to Shiloh nearly three years ago, Angelina was so overwhelmed and happy that her body was the least of her worries. She was still happy with the way things looked and felt,’ a source close to the actress tells Now. ‘But since having the twins, she’s found it impossible to ignore the insecurities that keep rising to the surface.
‘The biggest issues for her are her breasts – which she says are smaller and not as firm as they were before she breast-fed three children – and her stomach, which she’s described as “saggy”. She’s frustrated because no matter how much exercise she does, there’s still some skin that wrinkles.’
Angelina may have appeared her usual, gorgeous self on 30 January when she was pictured in a figure-hugging dress in Tokyo to promote Changeling, but she doesn’t always feel that glamorous on the inside.
Lucky for her then that, as well as being able to afford personal trainers and chefs, Angelina has another secret weapon in the fight to overcome her issues: her partner Brad Pitt, 45. Sources say Brad supports Angelina 100 per cent in everything she does, except when it comes to listing her flaws.
‘Brad won’t hear her put herself down,’ says one insider. ‘He listens and tells her to do what she needs to do to make herself happy. However, he also tells her he likes her body and thinks she looks more beautiful than ever. Brad adores the fact that they’ve created life and she’s nurtured it with the body he loves.’
