Angelina Jolie Has Chicken Pox, Sends Fans a Video Message

Angelina Jolie has a mild bout of chicken pox and has been forced to cancel her appearances at upcoming events to promote her movie Unbroken.

“I just wanted to be clear and honest about why I would be missing the Unbroken events in the next few days, which is that I found out last night that I have chicken pox,” the 39-year-old director says in a video message. “So, I will be home itching and missing everyone and I can’t believe it because this film means so much to me. I just can’t believe it, but such is life. There it is. Send everyone my love and I hope everything goes well!”

Here is the official statement that Angelina released via Universal Pictures: “You have to laugh at the timing. I was sure nothing could stop me from supporting Unbroken. I am heartbroken to miss our premiere, most of all the chance to be there with Louie’s family, Phil’s daughter Karen, veterans and all the guests who are coming.”

    Universal Pictures today confirmed that Angelina Jolie will be withdrawing from public events scheduled over the coming days due to a mild bout of chicken pox. She intends to resume her schedule and press engagements at the earliest opportunity.
    “You have to laugh at the timing,” the director commented. “I was sure nothing could stop me from supporting Unbroken. I am heartbroken to miss our premiere, most of all the chance to be there with Louie’s family, Phil’s daughter Karen, veterans and all the guests who are coming.”
    Universal Pictures said: “We all wish Angelina a speedy recovery and look forward to her returning to her work very soon. She is in very good spirits, considering after two years of hard work, she will not be there the night it finally premieres.”
    Monday night, her children and Brad will attend to represent her. Brad’s family has flown in for the occasion, and are all looking forward to seeing the film.

    Poor Angie :(

  • bbm

    she’s amazing!!!!

  • shoes4life

    This is probably a good thing because she has been running like crazy. Rest is truly needed because I heard Chicken Pox is not anything you want as an adult.

    I know Brad and the children will take good care of her.

  • gemdiamond

    Tough luck. But we get to see Brad and their kids at the premiere. Wonder who’ll accompany Brad? I think the big ones. Miss Vivi might not go cos Mum is not going

  • Myskina

    Minimally talented actress lolz

  • JPFamily

    Rest is the best thing, as it really drains you if it hits as an adult.
    She will need to take it much easier, no matter how hard it will be for her.
    Brad and the kids will make sure she does and will be terrific carers, God bless her.

    This is just a troll, she might not even be a fan of you know who, she just wants attention. Please ignore her.

    ………………………………………………………………….
    I’m with you, JPF. Hope she gets better real soon. I, too, had the bad luck of having chicken pox as an adult. Very, very bad for adults to get it! It was much, much itchier than when kids get it.

    Also I hope and pray that Angie’s skin will stay smooth and flawless after the bout of chicken pox!

  • happy666

    Sweet, calm and relaxed… She looks wonderful in every video shot.

  • bap

    You have evil ways! She is sick and you have no empathy!

  • bap

    You are so right! She needs rest.

  • changeling

    I am more concerned about Angie. I had chicken pox when I was little and it took almost two weeks to disappear completely. I wish Angie a speedy recovery and I am overwhelmed by the love and support she is getting from Brad’s parents and his family. This is the time they are all rallying around her. They love her. And for Brad and his children to be walking the red carpet…omg, I would love to see them.

  • Anonima

    I caught it too at exactly same age. You only can get it once in a lifetime. Her immune system must have been low. It does exhaust the body for 3 days. Speedy recovery!

  • snakeskin

    At least she will get some rest.
    Get better soon AJ

  • Tweet Angie

    in adults chicken pox can manifest itself in a very dangerous way.

  • Joann

    Love you beautiful lady.Take care.Get plenty of rest.God Bless You and Your Beautiful Family.

  • changeling

    As long as she does not scratch them, my doctor told me when I had them, that it will not leave scars or blemishes. They will heal by natural process and her skin will be as clear as ever.

  • JPFamily

    Hear hear, must have been tough for you too.
    We just want her to get healthy and strong again, and back to her old self as soon as possible.

  • bap

    You mean if high fever occurs. She is tough, she will recover through rest.

  • Susan

    Chicken pox is contagious, most likely she caught it from someone.

  • changeling

    Brad’s parents would probably stay to help with the kids as chicken pox is highly contagious. Angie might need to stay in isolation away from the children until the virus is gone. It is some kind of a form of viral infection that causes rash and blisters. She’s under the care of very good doctors I am certain Brad will take care of that.

  • teri

    So honest and so gorgeous even with chickenpox and no make up!

  • Anonima

    Lots & lots of sleep and drinking water helped me recover within a week. Had absolutely no itching. If she does, calamine lotion helps.

  • teri

    I certainly hope she gave it to the woman at Sony for being such a two-faced brat.

  • Susan

    Superficial.

  • Myskina

    LOL

  • bap

    fever also!

  • Anonima

    Yes, airborne. But ifthe immune system is run down due to fatigue, we’re more susceptible to viruses.
    Maybe a kid she hugged…anyway, she’ll be fine.
    Beautiful lady. Talented & modest.

  • Deanne

    Yikes, I hope she gets better soon. Adult chicken pox can be pretty rough.

  • GingerGirl

    You have mental problems, right?

  • bap

    Always honest!

  • teri

    You are so gorgeous Angelina there is no wonder why Brad fell head over heels in love with you even without makeup.

  • Susan

    Maybe the kids are vaccinated for chicken pox.

  • CLINIQUA

    I know re the no makeup…she’s flawless and stunning, barefaced and sick….I hope her doc is taking good care of her. Wonder which JP kid had the CPs?

  • wika

    She’s so pretty despite being sick it’s unbelievable. I hope she gets a speedy recovery, chicken pox is nasty…poor Angie!! Oh well, take good care pf your healths, JP fans!

  • teri

    Said by a racist pig

  • Bwest

    No cry…Great and brave Dame! Brad will take care of that. Speedy recovery! I love you!

  • Tweet Angie

    If the immune system is weakened can bring complications, especially pulmonary and neurological. I know what I am speaking because I am a nurse.

  • pi

    Get well soon Angie! I love you so much <3 Take a good rest and don't be sad, you've done an incredibe work!

  • Pamela S

    Shaking my head…..Well, you needed a rest. Save the smack down for later. :)
    Watch your fever.

  • lurker

    she was close to people last couple of weeks

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    Even sick without make up she still looks gorgeous. So damn jealous.
