Angelina Jolie has been candid about her health struggles, including a double mastectomy and removal of her ovaries and fallopian tubes, which shifted her into early menopause. Now, she’s revealing a new condition she’s faced: Bell’s palsy.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Jolie said that last year she developed both hypertension (aka high blood pressure) and Bell’s palsy, which caused one side of her face to droop.
“I can’t tell if it’s menopause or if it’s just been the year I’ve had,” she said, adding that she’s also noticed more gray hairs and dryer skin. “Sometimes women in families put themselves last until it manifests itself in their own health.” In the past year, Jolie, 42, separated from Brad Pitt and says she and her family are “healing” in the wake of the couple’s divorce
