The video entitled “A Message from Universal Pictures About Angelina Jolie,” was published by Universal Pictures and it shows Angelina with almost no makeup whatsoever, showing signs of red marks on her skin.

Itching & Missing Everyone

“I just wanted to be clear and honest about why I will be missing the “Unbroken” events in the next few days,” said Angelina. “I found out last night that I have chicken pox, so I will be home itching and missing everyone.“

The actress also added that she was quite devastated with the turn of events as she was really looking forward to the premiers.

“I can’t believe it because this film means so much to me. I can’t believe it. But such is life, there it is. Send everyone my love and hope that everything goes well.”

We wish her a fast recovery and hope she will indeed soon be unbroken.
