During her recent sit-down with Ann Curry on NBC’s Today, Nadya Suleman captivated the world when she spoke out for the first time about her 2-week-old octuplets. But almost more remarkable than her interview was her eerie physical similarity to celebrity mom of six Angelina Jolie – who sat down with Curry in May 2007 to discuss her own growing brood. Surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn (who has not treated Nadya) tells Life & Style that the mom of 14 appears to have undergone surgical procedures to augment her lips and perfect her nose — making her resemble Angelina. “The similarities between Nadya and Angelina are uncanny,” Dr. Youn notes.
“They have the same hair and big lips, and Nadya is quite tall too,” Sally Ramirez, one of Nadya’s neighbors in Whittier, Calif., tells Life & Style. “She would sometimes giggle if anybody mentioned the likeness to Angelina.”
But the similarities between Nadya and Angelina are more than just physical. Angelina has admitted to being a loner who had trouble forming friendships before she adopted her first child, eldest son Maddox, in 2001, then began raising him as a single mom. Similarly, Nadya — 33, the same age as Angie — confesses to initially wanting children for companionship. “There was always a dream of mine to have a large family, a huge family, and I just longed for certain connections and attachments with another person that I really lacked growing up,” Nadya, who was raised as an only child, told Curry.
