Washington (ANI): As rumours of Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie breaking-up picks momentum, a handwriting expert has said that an autograph the actress recently gave a fan shows she is under stress. The couple appeared more affectionate than usual at the Directors Guild of America Awards on January 30, but expert Sheila Lowe has revealed that the long extended final stroke of Jolie"s last name in the autograph “can add up to feeling pressured, with a need to protect oneself".
“Hers has always been an extremely simplified signature, and this one is even more so. It"s like shorthand. It could be a result of stress, the need to keep things on the surface and simple," Us magazine quoted Lowe as saying. “The extremely long, rightward ending stroke is symbolic of holding others at bay. Think of an outstretched arm: Stand back!" she said, adding that signatures can be more difficult to decipher when written quickly.
Similarly, Patti Stanger of Bravo"s Millionaire Matchmaker, recently said that Jolie “shows possessiveness and a desire not to lose Brad...but defensive [body language] in case she does". Bart Baggett, creator of the Handwriting Wizard, says Jolie"s signature has “large beginning letters, which indicates confidence and a healthy ego".
He compared her signature to one from 2006, toward the beginning of her relationship with Pitt. “She has learned the art of compromise and has more humility than before," he said. “The angles, the analytical, masculine qualities are less. She has more feminine, supportive handwriting. It is more of a mother trait than a demise in the relationship. Her ego is still strong," Baggett added.
