How Brad Really Feels About Media Attention
Reports were running rampant last week that Angelina Jolie already was pregnant with Brad Pitt's second biological child, as the skinny star was snapped sporting a little lump in Venice. But apparently it's more bloat than bump. "Angelina’s low body weight looks to have caused some malnutrition," observed a doctor who does not treat the star. "This often causes bloating in the stomach region."
A buddy of the couple wouldn’t confirm any possible pregnancy but told Pop Tarts that "another child is definitely on their radar." And don't believe front-page stories in the tabloids proclaiming that Brad and Angie are on the rocks. Brad recently got a tattoo of her birthday etched into his arm.
Brad said of the reports on him and his family: "I still get amazed at the media attention that follows fame; it seems to be at an all-time high. There’s so much competition out there, so many different outlets for it and such a hunger for the best pictures or the best stories. I don’t quite understand why everybody cares so much, especially when so much of what is printed and reported has such a negative focus. I don’t find it particularly healthy — for any of us."
