Angelina Jolie is the latest star that's been asked to gain weight, joining celebrities like Megan Fox and Victoria Beckham. The Thomas Crown Affair 2 directors said they would like to see the once voluptuous Angelina add a few extra pounds to her now lithe frame.
Angelina, 33, gave birth to twins earlier this month, but shedding baby weight should be the least of her worries. In fact, the actress was criticized for not having but on enough weight during her pregnancy. In addition, it's rumored that she fainted on the set of Wanted to do being undernourished.
However, delving into boxes of Krispy Kreme and downing caramel Frappucinos aren't exactly the solutions on the doctor's prescription list. Nope, producers want Angelina Jolie back, with the muscular, toned and sexy body only a healthy diet and regular fitness sessions can develop.
"Ideally they want Angelina to put on two stone for the role," a source told the UK Daily Mirror. That's 28 lbs!
"It is going to be very physically demanding, which is why they want her to carry the extra weight.
"She was also slated for being too skinny to portray an action woman, and for Thomas Crown they want a convincing female lead.
"Hopefully, she will take them up on it - a few extra pounds wouldn't hurt her."
