Actors and actresses who make it big in Hollywood are usually well known around the world. Their movies get translated into numerous languages and their fans span the globe.
One of the most well-known Hollywood celebrities is Angelina Jolie. The actress and philanthropist recently shared some somber news in an interview with Vanity Fair.
The news comes as Jolie deals with her divorce from Brad Pitt. The couple had been separated for months and Jolie says she has been focused on making the best of her life and becoming the best mom she can be for her many children.
The actress also dropped a bombshell on reporters and fans when she opened up about a recent paralysis diagnosis. No one expected Jolie to announce she has Bell's Palsy. The condition affects muscles on one side of the face and they become weak or paralyzed. It usually causes it to droop or become stiff on that side. Watch the video below to hear her deliver the news in her own words.
Jolie is no stranger to stress and health issues. She has also recovered from a double mastectomy in years past. Now, Jolie is showing an intimate side to herself as she combats the stress of motherhood, Hollywood, and being divorced. In the interview, she also opened up about being a strong role model for her children.
“I think it’s very important to cry in the shower and not in front of them,” she said. “They need to know that everything’s going to be all right even when you’re not sure it is,” she said.
