Angelina Jolie's Freakiest Parenting Habits: She Saves Used Bandages & More

You won’t believe how Angie’s parenting is affected by her crazy obsessions: exercise, shopping — and blood!

The public already knows that Angelina Jolie is “eccentric,” but a new report from In Touch literally portrays her as “crazy” — at least in terms of her parenting habits. And her former assistant Ana Charlotiaux, who filed a wrongful dismissal suit against Angie and Brad Pitt, is just one of the ex-staffers spilling the Hollywood mom’s darkest secrets.

She’s fascinated by blood: “When Angelina’s kids get cuts and scrapes, she saves their discarded bandages in a large jar,” a friend tells the mag. “She thinks she’s being edgy and artistic.”

She’s an online shopaholic: The friend also reveals that Angie is known to spend hours at a time shopping online for “thousands of dollars worth of clothes and jewelry.”

She hides in the basement: “No one is to bother her” while she’s exercising in her basement, an employee reveals. “She locks herself [down there] every day and exercises for hours.” The employee adds that Angie uses her excessive regimen as an escape from her family.

She leaves the kids alone: While on a recent trip to London, Angie and Brad reportedly left their entire brood locked up in their hotel room — with supervision — and went out drinking. A second report claims the Jolie-Pitt kids stayed on an entirely separate floor from their parents during their stay in Budapest.

Wow! HollyMoms, which of Angie’s obsessions do YOU think is craziest?
