Angelina Jolie Has to Miss 'Unbroken' Premiere Because She Has Chicken Pox

Pin It
Poor Angelina Jolie! After working for two years on her directorial debut in Unbroken, she will be unable to attend the premiere due to a mild bout of chicken pox.

"You have to laugh at the timing," Angelina said in a video for Universal Pictures. "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."

Given that chicken pox is highly contagious, Angie is taking others' well-being into consideration as she decided to bow out of the big night.

"We all wish Angelina a speedy recovery and look forward to her returning to her work very soon," Universal said. "She is in very good spirits, considering after two years of hard work, she will not be there the night it finally premieres."

The A-lister will still be there in spirit as husband Brad Pitt and their children attend the premiere on her behalf.

Get well soon, Angie!
