Starving for love...

It’s believed the on-going love triangle between Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston is taking its toll on Ange who’s weight has further plummeted since Brad betrayed her by publically acknowledging his “hilarious” and “incredibly loving” ex-wife, Jen.

Since Brad gloated about his ex, which no doubt left Ange devastated, the Tomb Raider star has thrown herself into her UN work. Leaving her kids with Brad, she’s been concentrating so hard on her efforts as a UN ambassador that it also appears the stress is causing her to forget to eat with the star recently snapped looking her most frail and skinny yet.

Broken hearted...

Since her hubby, Ashton Kutcher, was accused of cheating on her, with a girl half her age, on their sixth wedding anniversary, Demi Moore has drastically seen her weight plummet as the strain of her marriage breakdown becomes too much to handle.

Since rumours surfaced of Ashton’s alleged infidelity Demi has struggled to maintain her usual lifestyle with nutritionist Dr Majid Ali revealing that he believes Demi has been spending “too much time in the gym and too little time at the dinner table.”

A shadow of her former self, the actress shocked fans when she attended the recent Five premiere looking skinny, tired and sporting incredibly muscley arms.

With the Two And A Half Men actor rumoured to have cheated on her with a 22-year-old it’s Demi’s former body insecurities that have resurfaced with the actress who once said, “I had an extreme obsession with my body. I made it a measure of my own value,” thought to be on the ‘heartbreak diet’.

Doesn’t want to be the next Lilo...

Since leaving The OC, which catapulted her to the A -list, Mischa Barton has struggled to maintain that level of fame. As such, the actress seemed to find comfort in food and was rumoured to have gained 20 kilos since her failed comeback attempt in The Beautiful Life.

Pals insisted her lifestyle was to blame as she partied all night, then ate junk food when hungover. “She’s a regular at [NY club] Antik,” spilled a pal. However, with the party lifestyle taking its toll on the star’s health and career it seems she has done a complete 360 in order to avoid being the next Lindsay Lohan. 

Though, perhaps in a desperate attempt to revive her career the actress has gone to the extreme, recently stepping out with friends looking gaunt and frail. A source said, “Mischa’s cheeks looked hollow, and the fuchsia stain slicked across her lips did little to flatter her porcelain complexion.”

Trying to reclaim her youth...

Friends and family are reportedly concerned at Katie Holmes’ alarming weight loss, with the star following a rigorous dance routine that has seen her shed significant and noticeable pounds over the last few months.

Despite the actress finally starting to step out from beneath husband Tom Cruise’s shadow, with her career falling back on track with roles in upcoming movies thriller The Son of No One and comedy Jack And Jill, it seems she is trying too hard to regain her Dawson’s Creek figure that made her famous in the first place.

Yet, sources insist the strict regime has had the opposite effect, making her look older than her 32 years. “Some think that Katie has gone too far,” claimed an insider, “and that her severe weight-loss and strict diet had aged the star.

A pal added, “She’s so gaunt. We’ve said to her, ‘Katie, you look so much older; you need to put flesh on your bones.’”

There’s also speculation that Katie’s new addiction to dance class is an attempt to forget her rumoured on-going marriage crisis.


Despite declaring, “I’m not anorexic or bulimic,” LeAnn Rimes’ devastatingly thin figure is still causing a stir in Hollywood.

Although she complains about the press constantly commenting on her boney frame the star continues to regularly post images of her tiny figure on Twitter, which has led many to believe she is doing it all for attention.

In spite of the singer claiming she wishes everyone concentrated more on her career than her looks, her constant narcissistic posts have actually detracted attention away from her new album.

Initially LeAnn’s weight loss seemed like an attempt to look more like her new husband Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville, yet the pounds have continued to drop off.

The 29-year-old is thought to be obsessed with exercise admitting,”I’m serious about my exercise. I don’t just doodle around. I see people at the gym talking on their cell phones. If they think their bodies are really going to change ... I mean, you’ve got to put in the effort!” Sadly, however, it seems she’s gone too far, so much so that it’s claimed she’s too thin to get pregnant!

Single and lonely...

Rumour has it that Sandra Bullock’s recent dramatic weight loss is down to her heartbreak after ‘close pal’ Ryan Reynolds rekindled his romance with Blake Lively. It’s thought that Ryan and Sandra, despite their protestations, were an item with the actor even bonding with her adoptive son Louis.

Ever since news broke that Blake and Ryan had hooked-up, a once blooming Sandra has stepped out in public looking withdrawn, sad and extremely thin. It seems Ryan was the first man she trusted since her divorce to Jesse James who cheated on her.

“The loneliness and doubt that Sandra feels now that Ryan’s moved on could have led to feelings of insecurity about her body,” said a source, citing medical experts, who speculate that her alleged sadness has triggered the “dramatic       weight loss.”

An insider spilled, “She is stressed-out  and can’t stop losing   the weight.”

Another source added, “Bullock’s chest bones are showing and her face is gaunt. Her arms are veiny and too muscular. She has undergone a radical transformation.”

Her recent appearance is far cry from the strong female character that made Sandra famous, even gaining many female admirers after severing all ties with her cheating ex. Perhaps Ryan’s alleged betrayal was a push too far.
