'Dangerously malnourished': Dr Drew's verdict on Angelina Jolie's rail-thin frame
Her turn on the red carpet at the Oscars on Sunday made headlines across the globe.
Almost a week on, THAT picture of Angelina Jolie's jutting right leg is still generating talk – but now for different reasons.
Dr Drew appeared on The View today where he said Jolie looks dangerously malnourished in the eye-catching image.

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.'
His comments came after he expressed the same verdict on her 'dangerously' skinny frame during his own, self-titled show earlier this 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.
O’Reilly went on to say Jolie, in his opinion, was sending out the wrong message to her fans with her rail-thin physique.

'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.
'Then dinner could be something like a lean steak and a glass of red wine.'
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.'
