The Celebrity Rehab expert said that he felt "an obligation" to pass comment on Jolie's figure following the frenzy over her Oscars leg pose.
"I'm tired of keeping quiet about this stuff," Dr Drew said on yesterday's (March 2) edition of The View. "When I was quiet about prescription drug use and then everybody starts dying, now I feel an obligation to speak up, she's malnourished. She has the stigmata of malnutrition.
"I just see malnutrition for some reason there, and we shouldn't look at that as an ideal of beauty. She's a beautiful woman, but she needs to be better nourished."
Jolie's appearance has been praised by her father Jon Voight, who said after last weekend's Academy Awards ceremony: "She comes out and does this pose and waits until people get it, it was so great. The audience responded so wonderfully too, [with] whistles and everything."
The Descendants writer Jim Rash, who mimicked Jolie's stance after collecting his 'Best Adapted Screenplay' Oscar from her, insisted this week that he wasn't "mocking" her.
"She chuckled when she stood like that, and I thought she was sort of just owning that dress and rocking it and selling it, so I thought, I should do that with my own stance to be proud of this moment," he explained.
