Oh, that Dr. Drew, what a scoundrel! He has quite the habit of upsetting people by talking about celebrities and their problems without ever actually meeting them, doesn’t he? Whether you love him or hate him, we’ll get to that in a minute, but for now, let’s hear what he has to say this time about Angelina Jolie:
Dr. Drew Pinsky took to “The View” (weekdays on ABC) on Friday to speak out about Angelina Jolie, who he believes, from watching her at the Oscars, is “malnourished.”
“I’m tired of keeping quiet about this stuff. When I was quiet about prescription drug use and then everyone starts dying, now I feel an obligation to speak up: She’s malnourished. She has the [physical signs] … of malnutrition,” he said.
Dr. Drew went on to speculate as to what may be going on with Jolie’s health. He cited an US Weekly report that claimed she may have been depriving herself of food in order to “make a statement about the kids in Africa that she was working with that didn’t have a chance to eat,” according to Dr. Drew. “I just see malnutrition for some reason there, and we shouldn’t look at that as an ideal of beauty,” he continued. “She’s a beautiful woman, but she needs to be better nourished.”
I’m sure there’s going to be a number of people who are upset by this, but Dr. Drew doesn’t get it, and honestly, I don’t really get it either. I mean, check out what Angelina Jolie looked like during the Oscars one more time:
I could say that she looked malnourished, and I seriously doubt anyone would call me out on it, let alone get seriously upset about it, but Dr. Drew is different. It’s because he’s an actual doctor, right? Then why does no one get all up in arms when a plastic surgeon speculates on the work some celebrity has had done without ever treating them personally? Is it because he usually discusses deeper things than lip injections and nose jobs? Really, I’m actually curious about all this.
But yeah, I wouldn’t be too surprised if Angelina actually was malnourished, would you? Girl’s got to get some meat on them bones in the worst way.
