Fast food fightback! Angelina Jolie hits back at criticism of her shrinking frame by pulling up to a McDonald's drive through

By Daily Mail Reporter

Fast food nation: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt order some food from the McDonalds drive-through earlier today

Just yesterday, Dr Drew Pinksy labelled her ever-shrinking frame as looking 'dangerously malnourished,' during a TV appearance.

But today, Angelina Jolie perhaps went some way into proving her critics wrong by pulling up to a Hollywood McDonald's today for some fast food.

The star sat in the passenger seat alongside partner Brad Pitt as they ordered several bags of food from the drive-through.

The celebrity couple had twins Vivienne and Knox in the back of the car.

However, despite Angelina helping Brad order several bags of food, there was no actual photographic evidence of her tucking into a burger herself.

Dr Drew Pinksy appeared on U.S. show The View yesterday where he discussed the now infamous photograph of a slim Angelina Jolie baring her right leg in a black Versace gown at the Oscars last weekend.

As the picture was flashed up on a screen behind him, he warned that women should not regard the actress as an ideal of beauty on account of her remarkably skinny figure.

'She's malnourished,' he claimed, before reiterating: 'I just see malnutrition.

'We should not look at that as an ideal of beauty, even though she might be a beautiful woman,' he added.

His comments came after he expressed the same verdict on her 'dangerously' skinny frame during his own, self-titled show earlier in the week.

Fox presenter Bill O’Reilly is another who has weighed in on the matter.

'Is it just me or is she looking mighty slim these days? Emaciated even? I was kind of taken aback. Look at the arms on her,' he said on The O’Reilly Factor the day after the Oscars.

Back in November Grazia magazine reported Angelina survives on as little as 600 calories a day, which is the equivalent of two bowls of cereal with milk.

'Angelina has been known to start her day with little more than a spoonful of coconut oil and a handful of cereal,' a source told the publication.

'The worrying thing is that she is so busy, she often forgets to eat. Sometimes she'll skip lunch altogether or will just grab a few almonds and some gummy bears while she's on the go, or will have a protein-based shake rather than anything more substantial.'

Angelina's fluctuating weight has been well documented, with her slim frame becoming painfully thin during difficult emotional times in her life.

The actress was forced to defend her waif-like frame in 2007, when her weight plummeted following the death of her mother Marcheline.

At the time, she said: 'I have always been lean, and this year I lost my mum and I've gone through a lot.

'Instead of people saying I look like a person dealing with something emotionally, they assume it's because I want to fit into skinny jeans.'

Meanwhile, in a new interview, Angelina discusses how she used to be the tougher parent to she and Brad's six children and mentions how Brad and their ten-year-old son Maddox share a special bond.

She told British OK magazine: 'I used to be the tougher parent but since the birth of the twins, Brad's had to play bad cop more often.

'It also depends on which of the children we are talking about. Brad has always had this incredible bond with Mad, who's very smart, and Brad loves teaching him about history and art and culture – it's an amazing thing to watch them together.

'I think I'm a little closer to the girls, maybe, but he's always making them laugh. The children are usually very well-behaved though.'
