Angelina Jolie reveals health diagnosis in latest interview
The actress has revealed her diagnosis in her latest interview.
Angelina Jolie has revealed that she has been diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy – a condition that’s a result of damaged facial nerves.
The mum-of-six told Vanity Fair that the condition caused one side of her face to droop.
Jolie has struggled with health issue over the last number of years.
In 2013, the actress underwent a double mastectomy before opting for a hysterectomy in 2015 after learning she was at a high risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
The 42-year-old also spoke about life after her split from Brad Pitt last year and the effect that also had on her health.
“Sometimes women in families put themselves last… until it manifests itself in their own health.”
While divorce negotiations are ongoing, the mum-of-six says that she is still healing all the while trying to protect her children.
“We’re all just healing from the events that lef to the filing. I do not want my children to be worried about me.
“I think it’s very important to cry in the shower and not in front of them.
“They need to know that everything’s going to be alright, even when you’re not sure it is.”
