Is Angelina starving herself for a reason?

Angelina Jolie sure has been looking skinny lately … and by lately we mean for the past several years. Now one tabloid claims it’s not just due to narcissism — it’s part of her philanthropic spirit.

When visiting suffering people around the world as part of her U.N. goodwill ambassador duties, the Oscar winner “puts herself on fasts to make statements for the children she visits,” a source explains to Us magazine.

“She says, ‘If they can’t eat, I can’t eat,’” relays the source, and “does different cleanses from around the world. It’s very dramatic, but that’s how she gets.”

Meanwhile, Brad Pitt, baby daddy of Angie’s six kids, allegedly frets about her frame.

“He’s worried about her and has made her see a zillion doctors, but they keep telling her she’s fine,” the source confides.

We doubt this story is actually true, but as fabricated tabloid tales go, it’s relatively convincing. Leave it to Angelina to disguise a typically unhealthy Hollywood-actress weight obsession as a statement about global poverty!

Chemistry alert

Despite buzz that they were seriously flirting at the premiere of their new film “New Year’s Eve,” Lea Michele confides that she was originally intimidated by playing Ashton Kutcher’s love interest, deeming the newly single “Two and a Half Men” star “out of [her] league.”

When asked by director Garry Marshall which actor she would like to spend much of the film stuck in an elevator with, the “Glee” star “didn’t mention Ashton’s name just because, I gotta say, I kinda felt like he was a little out of my league,” she confesses to New York magazine.

“You know, this guy’s like, the hottest guy, and then when they called and said that Ashton was doing it, I was really freaked out,” Lea admits. “I thought I should have picked someone else and said, ‘You have to use this person!’ so I wouldn’t have been nervous. But I’m so glad, because he challenged me, and it was a really great pairing, I think.”

Apparently. Mind you, the movie was filmed a year ago when Ashton was still (relatively) happily married to Demi Moore … but did we mention that thing about them flirting at the premiere?

Bieber & bride?

The rumor mill is abuzz with talk that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez may be engaged! Huh? The teenybopper couple have been going strong for months, even in spite of a lawsuit — since dropped — alleging that he fathered a groupie’s baby. But are they actually ready for marriage?!

When Selena touched down in Mexico for her bridesmaid gig at a pal’s wedding, the “Wizards of Waverly Place” star was sporting a sparkler on her left ring finger, sparking rumors of a betrothal to the Bieb.

However, the “Baby” singer’s rep flatly states to E!, “There is no ring and no engagement,” while Selena’s flack confirms to Us magzine, “She’s NOT engaged.”

Well, that’s a relief! They have their whole lives ahead of them, so there’s plenty of time to decide if this relationship is meant to last forever. (Plus, if you were wealthy enough to throw an epic wedding party, wouldn’t you want to wait until you were old enough to drink? Just saying.)
