Washington, Feb 8 : Angelina Jolie has hit back at admirers of super-thin celebrities, asking people not to compliment underweight women.
The Tomb Raider star was herself praised for her emaciated frame, after she shrank several dress sizes, following the death of her mother Marcheline Bertrand, last year.
The 32-year-old, who is reportedly pregnant once again with partner Brad Pitt's baby, said that she would rather be criticised for losing weight, in order to stop young girls following suit.
"People think it is a compliment to say to someone, 'You're thin.' But it really isn't," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
"In fact, I like it better when people say I'm too thin. Then I think, 'Good, good, tell everyone and let it be a criticism.' I do not want to be too thin, because it's not healthy," she added.
