Angelina Jolie Told To Gain Weight For Her Latest Movie Role

Angelina Jolie has reportedly been told to gain up to 28 pounds for her latest film role.

The bosses of ‘The Thomas Crown Affair 2’ – who she also worked with on her last movie ‘Wanted’ – are said to be asking for the weight gain because they are desperate to avoid her fainting on set as she did while filming the assassin thriller.  A source said:

“Ideally they want Angelina to put on 28lbs for the role. It is going to be very physically demanding, which is why they want her to carry the extra weight.

“They don’t want a reprise of what happened with ‘Wanted’, where she was fainting and they had to take her costumes in. She was also slated for being too skinny to portray an action woman, and for ‘Thomas Crown’ they want a convincing female lead.”

Angelina – who gave birth to twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline earlier this month – is due to play the leading lady opposite Pierce Brosnan, who reprises his role as billionaire art thief Thomas Crown.

Brosnan will also produce the movie.

Gosh, 28 lbs is a lot for her.  I doubt she even gained that with being pregnant with the twins..
