Life is truly hard for Angelina Jolie. Like any new mother she faces the demands of a needy newborn or two, and she isn’t coping too well it would appear, despite the fact she has untold millions in the bank, is married to Brad Pitt and has to tolerate living in a massive French chateau.
Well, don’t know how she’s coping at all. Even her husband has had to pop off to his arduous work, appearing arm in arm with George Clooney at the famously arduous Venice Film Festival (it’s hardly nipping off to the coalface for a 14-hour shift, is it?), leaving Angelina all alone at home with a multitude of children to look after. A source (who may be connected in some way to Jolie and seeking sympathy and some extra publicity) said:
“She’s in tears up to three times a day and so tired that Brad’s found her collapsed asleep in the bath twice. She’s been working around the clock, breast-feeding the babies and trying to get them to sleep. But as soon as one of them drops off, the other wakes up for another feed. She’s also not eating very much right now and blames that on being busy. The doctor says that she needs more calories to gain strength and ensure that her breast milk is healthy.”
Poor thing! Let’s hope she manages to work out some way in which to begin coping. Oh yes, she could ask her battalion of nannies to pull their weight a bit more, an option that most new mothers don’t have up their sleeves – yet they seem to manage without running whining to the press.
Of course, money doesn’t solve everything but for some people a nice healthy dose of publicity certainly helps.
