Jolie's model-slim figure was a hot topic even while she was pregnant. Tabloids printed close-ups of her skinny arms and claimed that doctors told her she wasn't gaining enough weight. (She allegedly had put on just 12 pounds by her sixth month.) It wasn't so surprising, then, that she was back to her slender self in record time after the birth of daughter Shiloh in May 2006.
How she did it: She reportedly took a lot of prenatal yoga classes to stay fit (son Maddox even tagged along), so she may not have had much weight to lose from the start. Jolie stuck to her yoga routine after Shiloh was born; rumors floated that she relied on African gingerroot-and-garlic tea and nursing to get slim.
