Angelina Jolie suffered Bell’s palsy after her divorce from Brad Pitt
After being married for five years, the marriage between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt unexpectedly cracked in 2016.
From glory to separation
In front of the media the two actors appeared to be an ideal couple who went on to have five children, half of whom are adopted.
However, it later transpired that a character incompatibility had arisen and Jolie was the one who filed for divorce, a legal process that still fails to materialize.
In this sense, the Hollywood star confessed to Vanity Fair magazine that due to the emotional wear she developed a disease known as Bell’s palsy.
“Sometimes women who have families put themselves last, until it manifests itself in their own health,” she said.
It should be noted that Bell’s palsy is a disorder of the easy nerve or seventh cranial nerve that causes the affected person to be unable to contract some muscles of the face.
It can even affect saliva, tears, hearing or the ability to perceive flavors and, as its name indicates, it causes paralysis of the face.
Symptoms that people with Bell’s palsy may experience include: a feeling of stretched skin, difficulty closing one eye, eating, drinking or smiling.
In the case of Angelina Jolie, it is not known what type of symptomatology her case presented and also the treatment she underwent, but she claims to have been a victim of stress.
The truth is that, for several years, the appearance of the actress looks a little worn out in relation to the state that her physique showed during the years she lived with her ex-husband.
On the other hand, Brad Pit has not been the same since their divorce began to be aired, especially because Jolie had forbidden him to live with their children.
