Angelina Jolie Won't Attend 'Unbroken' Premiere Because of Chickenpox (VIDEO)

Angelina Jolie has a message for us all: she will not be attending the Monday premiere of her WWII film Unbroken -- and her reason has nothing to do with being called a "spoiled brat" by a certain movie producer. The 39-year-old actress has reportedly contracted a mild case of the chickenpox, which you figure is going to happen when you have 6 children. She wanted to be crystal clear about her decision to send husband Brad Pitt and her kids in her place to the Los Angeles premiere of the epic biopic she directed -- so she made a quickie video explaining her decision.


Universal Pictures released the video of Angie explaining that she "will be home, itching and missing everyone. And I can't believe it, because this film means so much to me ... but such is life."

In a statement, Universal 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."
