Angelina Jolie lied in a recent interview about taking cooking classes for her kids? That’s the claim being made a website, but Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.
The actress admitted in her Vanity Fair cover story last month that she struggles with some household duties, but is trying to become a more domesticated mom. “I’m just wanting to make the proper breakfast and keep the house,” she told the magazine. “That’s my passion. At the request of my kids, I’m taking cooking classes.”
RadarOnline now alleges Jolie was lying about her new hobby, insisting her comments were “all a facade — and the super thin actress actually loathes the kitchen!” The repeatedly discredited site goes on to quote a supposed “source” as saying, “She says she’s taking cooking lessons but the truth is she can’t cook and doesn’t want to. She fed people this line a few years ago. Angie can’t even fry an egg or cook pasta and she burns toast.”
The outlet’s dubious insider continues, “Angie often usually leaves the cooking to the housekeeper or does takeout. She really doesn’t even like food.” The questionable source concludes, “Remember when Angie cooked and ate bugs in Cambodia for a news segment. She thought she was top chef but she should think again. People were grossed out. No one wants to dine at her house.”
Of course, Jolie herself acknowledges that she’s not the greatest chef, but the site’s assertion that the actress is lying about trying to improve her cooking skills is simply untrue. A source close to the actress assures us she did in fact take cooking lessons, and the webloid’s accusation otherwise is “false.”
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time RadarOnline has baselessly questioned the actress’s parenting abilities. Gossip Cop recently busted the site for falsely claiming Jolie was “miserable” with her kids at the Renaissance Faire. We also called out the webloid for wrongly speculating Jolie was adopting more kids simply because she was spotted with a group of children at Disneyland. This latest article is equally unfounded.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
