Angelina Jolie says she's always been naturally slim.

The stunning actress - who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt - insists she doesn't really need to work out because she's been blessed with fortunate genes.

She said: "I really don't work out. I've always been kind of slight and I've always loved to run and jump around and be physical so action roles are not a huge challenge for me. I enjoy them."

Angelina is often voted one of the world's most beautiful women and her slender figure is admired by millions of women.

When Angelina filmed the first 'Tomb Raider' movie, she had to change her diet to take on the role of Lara Croft and admitted she never felt better.

She said: "It was such a challenge physically. A special diet also helped me shape my body. I ate steamed sea bass or steamed beef and vegetables, and I had no sugar and only drank soy milk.

"I'm all for curves on a woman, and feeling sexy and I never felt healthier or stronger than during the filming of this movie."
