The strain of a divorce and custody battle is squarely on Angelina Jolie’s shoulders, but she continues to pile on the work by signing on to Maleficent 2 and The One and Only Ivan. She is also lobbying to be the director and star of an upcoming biopic about wildlife conservationist Jane Goodall.
Are friends of the 42-year-old afraid she has taken on too much and as a result is heading for a complete physical meltdown?
According to In Touch, pals have urged the mother of six to slow down, but that’s not how the Oscar winner does things.
“She feels like she needs to be everything to everyone: a full-time mom, human rights activist, UN spokesperson, glamorous actress, director, and producer,” a source shared.
A couple of years ago the actress suffered from hypertension and Bell’s Palsy – a temporary facial paralysis. But now, in the wake of her split from Brad Pitt, sources say she is not eating enough or taking care of herself like she should.
And, with taking on so much work, everyone is worried that a serious breakdown could be in her near future.

Multiple tabloids have reported that Jolie has been in the driver’s seat when it comes to her current custody arrangement with Pitt, even refusing him to spend time with their children during the holidays.
But the couple is reportedly close to finalizing their divorce and coming to a permanent custody agreement, and it looks like Jolie has softened a bit towards her ex and won’t shortchange Pitt when it comes to spending time with his kids.
In the meantime, Jolie is attempting to pass on her passion for humanitarian work to her children. She took daughters Zahara and Shiloh with her on a UNHCR trip to the Zataari refugee camp in Jordan last week, and they met with Syrians who fled violence from the civil war in their country.

Both Zahara and Shiloh asked to join their mom on the trip, while their younger twin siblings, Knox and Vivienne, stayed back in France with their big brothers Pax and Maddox.
Jolie and her six kids have been in Paris this past week, and cameras caught them enjoying their time at The Louvre before Jolie visited the Guerlain store.
The family is staying at Le Meurice Hotel, and Jolie dramatically posed for photographers in an eye-catching red dress on top of the hotel while holding up the design’s cape-like sleeves.
In the sure-to-be beautiful photos, Angelina Jolie wore her hair pulled back tight and rocked some bright red lipstick.
