During her recent sit-down with Ann Curry on NBCÃ¢â¬â¢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 Ã¢â¬â making her resemble Angelina. Ã¢â¬ÅThe similarities between Nadya and Angelina are uncanny,Ã¢â¬Â Dr. Youn notes.
Ã¢â¬ÅThey have the same hair and big lips, and Nadya is quite tall too,Ã¢â¬Â Sally Ramirez, one of NadyaÃ¢â¬â¢s neighbors in Whittier, Calif., tells Life & Style. Ã¢â¬ÅShe would sometimes giggle if anybody mentioned the likeness to Angelina.Ã¢â¬Â
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 Ã¢â¬â 33, the same age as Angie Ã¢â¬â confesses to initially wanting children for companionship. Ã¢â¬ÅThere 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,Ã¢â¬Â Nadya, who was raised as an only child, told Curry.
