The report also indicates that the exhaustion is causing Angelina Jolie to act irrationally. A source revealed: “Her mood swings have been hard on the entire family.”

The source also dishes the scoop: Although the 33-year-old actress “tries to control her emotions around her older children, she has been staying in bed most of the time, all she does is sleep. She has little energy and has to force herself to remember to eat because she is still breast feeding.
