London, July 24 (ANI): Angelina Jolie has been told to put on two stone for her role in the new film The Thomas Crown Affair 2, it has emerged.

The bosses of the film, which will be produced by Pierce Brosnan, don”t want a repeat of what happened when the actress made action flick Wanted (the super-skinny Jolie fainted on set), say sources.

“Ideally they want Angelina to put on two stone for the role. It is going to be very physically demanding, which is why they want her to carry the extra weight, the Mirror quoted her, as saying.

“They don”t want a reprise of what happened with Wanted, where she was fainting and they had to take her costumes in.

“She was also slated for being too skinny to portray an action woman, and for Thomas Crown they want a convincing female lead.

“Hopefully, she will take them up on it - a few extra pounds wouldn”t hurt her, the source added. (ANI)
