Angelina Jolie is NOT on a “hunger strike” to raise awareness about starving Syrian refugees, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this rumor. We’re told it’s “not true.”

Jolie is obviously a dedicated humanitarian, but according to the National Enquirer, she’s now taking extreme measures to help with the refugee crisis. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Angie’s trying to save the world, but she can’t seem to save herself. She told us, ‘If they can’t eat, I can’t eat.'”

The tabloid’s seemingly phony insider adds, “The only thing her frightening weight loss is calling attention to is her health, not the unfortunate people she’s trying to help.” The magazine then goes on to allege that Brad Pitt is intervening in his wife’s supposed weight issues, quoting an alleged “pal” of the couple as saying, “Brad’s trying desperately to make Angie understand the dire straits she’s in.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Jolie, who exclusively assures us the actress is not “starving herself to death,” as the tabloid alleges. We’re further told the magazine’s entire story is simply “not true.” Similarly untrue are the Enquirer’s countless claims that Jolie is suffering serious health problems, a fabrication Gossip Cop has repeatedly debunked.
