More than one staffer has whispered about Angelina Jolie’s odd eating habits, which go far beyond Hollywood dieting. According to one employee, Angelina, 36, becomes obsessed with certain foods — sometimes eating only one type for days at a time. “She became obsessed with soup,” the employee recalls to In Touch. “Light soups that didn’t have a cream base — that became the constant request.”

Rather than following a balanced diet — if only to set a good nutritional example for her children — Angelina seems intent on doing just the opposite. “Her daily diet varies,” another family insider whispers. “Sometimes it will be just green tea and nuts. Other days, it will be red meat and red wine, and then, back to tea and some tiny portion of protein.”

Angelina even has a house rule: Leftovers always get thrown out! Her bizarre — and unhealthy — diet upsets Brad, 47, who fears that the kids may imitate their mom’s behavior. But, as the insider reveals to In Touch, Angelina doesn’t care. It’s just one of many bizarre character traits that Brad — and the household staff — have simply had to get used to. As those close to her know, if you want to live with Angelina, you’ve got to keep an open mind about most of her behavior. “She was an odd duck, even as a child,” shares the friend, who confides that in high school, Angelina once wore the same shirt every day for nearly two months. “And she’s still strange.”
