In a new interview in the September issue of Vanity Fair published Wednesday, #AngelinaJolie opened up about the "difficult" year she had after splitting with husband #BradPitt. Pitt and Jolie separated in September 2016.
She said she suffered from Bell's Palsy, a type of temporary facial paralysis. She had also been diagnosed with hypertension, or high blood pressure.
"I can’t tell if it’s menopause or if it’s just been the year I’ve had. Sometimes women in families put themselves last until it manifests itself in their own health," the mother-of-six said. "I actually feel like more of a woman because I’m being smart about my choices, and I’m putting my family first, and I’m in charge of my life and my health."
She has received acupuncture treatment and is in full recovery now.
Jolie's film #FirstTheyKilledMyFather will be released on #Netflix this year.
