Joining the media backlash against Octuplets mom Nadya Suleman, Angelina Jolie says she is "totally creeped out" by Suleman.

And although Suleman says she doesn't give a hoot about Jolie ("I have never thought of Angelina Jolie except the last time I saw one of her movies. I think that was years ago. It is so far away from the place I'm in right now, to think of any celebrity"), friends and family of Suleman say the mother of 14 secretly envies the Oscar winner.

    The Southern California woman who gave birth to octuplets on Jan. 26 had the embryos implanted at a Beverly Hills clinic run by a controversial doctor, it was revealed Monday. Here, Dr. Michael Kamrava is shown performing an ultrasound on a pregnant Nadya Suleman in 2006. In addition to the octuplets, Suleman has six other children, ages 2 to 7.

    Suleman is shown with two of her children in 2006. The single mom told NBC's 'Today' show that she was "fixated" on having children. She said all 14 of her children were conceived through in vitro fertilization with sperm donated by a friend. She said she used the same doctor for all her pregnancies.

    Suleman looks at an ultrasound of her unborn twins in 2006. She told NBC that she is not "living off the taxpayers," but she has accepted food stamps. RadarOnline.com reported that she is living in a hotel room, although it's not clear who is paying for the room.

    NBC's 'Today' broadcast footage Monday of Suleman visiting her octuplets in the California hospital where they were born Jan. 26. There are six boys and two girls.

    Suleman did not disclose the name of her doctor, but she said on 'Today' that she went to the West Coast IVF Clinic in Beverly Hills. Its director is Kamrava, shown being followed by reporters Monday. Kamrava, 57, would not comment, but told reporters outside his clinic on Rodeo Drive that he had granted an interview to one of the television networks.

    Kamrava enters his office Monday. Some fertility specialists have questioned his methods. "He's tried some novel techniques and some of those methods have been controversial," said Dr. John Jain, founder of Santa Monica Fertility Specialists. Ethicists have questioned the decision to implant so many embryos in Suleman, saying the health of both the mother and babies were at risk.

    Without identifying the doctor, the Medical Board of California said last week that it was investigating Suleman's physician to see whether there may have been "a violation of the standard of care." The board said Monday it has not taken any disciplinary action against Kamrava in the past.

    This is the building where Kamrava's clinic is located. Many have questioned why a doctor would help a single woman with six young children and no visible means of support to conceive more babies.

What's more, a source close to Jolie (mother of six) says it's not just reading about Suleman in the media that triggers her irritation. Apparently Suleman has reached out to Jolie several times over the past year, sending her fan mail congratulating her on her humanitarian efforts. .

Says the source: ''At least she wasn't a total crazy...like the stalkers who try to actually meet Angelina and follow along with the paparazzi. It is clear this woman needs psychological help. It's one thing to clip out a celebrity's photo from a magazine and ask your [hair] stylist to copy that cut. Who hasn't done that? But to have a nose job, have collagen injections in your lips and start talking like Angelina -- that's over the top.''

Let's go over the similarities between Suleman and Jolie.

•Both are age 33 and famous for being a mom.

•Both wanted to be single mothers.

•Both have strikingly similar features -- Suleman has been accused of having plastic surgery on her lips and nose to resemble the actress.

•Suleman agreed to sit down with Ann Curry for her first interview with the media. Curry has long been Jolie's most consistent interviewer, flying around the world with the star throughout the years.

Sure, I am just speculating but the resemblance is striking. What do you think?
