While Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are all smiles in front of the cameras, a new report suggests life’s tougher behind the scenes. According to Life & Style magazine, the couple’s joy over the upcoming additions to their family is tempered by Angelina difficult pregnancy.
“Angelina’s having a very hard time, and it’s making her miserable,” a friend revealed to L&S. “The babies are heavy, and she’s exhausted from the weight. The pressure can make it hard for her to breathe at times, and she tires out very easily.”
With Angelina’s jet-set lifestyle and hectic work schedule, the affects of low-energy catch up with quickly. “It’s taking a toll on her — she feels exhausted when it’s time to get up,” the close source said. “She and Brad tried a special foam-rubber mattress cover, but nothing helped.”
Allegedly, exhaustion isn’t the only problem Angie’s facing. “Angelina’s been feeling weak and nauseated,” the pal added. “She’s upset and disappointed that her nausea returned after going away in the second trimester. And she needs to be very careful about nutrition since she’s been diagnosed with high blood sugar. It’s a very frustrating time for her.”
Director chimes in on LiLo’s struggleLindsay Lohan has a friend in Garry Marshall. After hearing about LiLo’s latest wagon-slip, the veteran writer-director came to the actress’ defense and shared his concerns with OK!.
“It’s hard for her,” Garry explained to the magazine. “All these young kids are having trouble, but I truly think she’s a great actress and talent will win out. Soon she’ll get it together and everybody will leave her alone and let her act. But it might take a moment because she’s very young.”
In the past, Garry could be counted among Lindsay’s harshest critics. Frustrated after she missed days on the set of “Georgia Rule,” he prompted Morgan Creek Productions chief James G. Robinson to pen a tough-love letter to the star in 2006. The missive characterized Lindsay’s behavior as “discourteous, irresponsible and unprofessional,” and stated that she “acted like a spoiled child.”
“I try to be (a mentor to these young girls),” Garry told OK!. “I used to do a joke where I’d try to get young people on their way up and before rehab. There’s a little window in there, and you can really make 'em cook! But it’s not so much a joke sometimes. I really try to mentor these young kids.”

“How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris has an eye for oddities. “I have a two-headed cow fetus in formaldehyde in my garage,” the actor admitted in a quote posted to ContactMusic. “I love carnival, circus, freak show stuff. I bought it in a jar from a man in New Mexico.” ... In a new book entitled, “Thanking the Monkey: Rethinking the Way We Treat Animals,” Karen Dawn targets serial accessory-pet shoppers Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. “We've already seen Paris go through dogs faster than mojitos, and I bet nobody warned Britney that California might soon force drivers to keep dogs safely restrained in vehicles — like babies,” the author said in an excerpt of the book published in Page Six. “An impulse purchase of a companion for the next 15 years? ... Nobody expects them to have the dogs much longer than 15 months.”
