They’re both famous mothers of big broods, but when it comes to Nadya “Octomom” Suleman and A-list actress, Angelina Jolie, Nadya claims Angie’s got nothin’ on her!
In an exclusive new interview and photo shoot with In Touch, Octomom admits of her idol, “I’ve been compared to Angelina,” and “I admire her”—but that doesn’t mean their lives are one and the same.
While Nadya does a mean Lara Croft: Tomb Raider pose (see above)— taking after Angie’s famous 2001 flick— she admits “I don’t think I look anything like her.” And she doesn’t share her lifestyle either.
