Angelina Jolie ( 42) revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair that she had been diagnosed with Bell’s palsy, ” a condition in which the muscles on one side of your face become weak or paralysed. […] [affecting] one side of the face, Bell’s palsy leads one side of the face to droop or become stiff on the particular side.”
In an interview article with Vanity Fair,( click here to view Angelina’s cover story with Vanity Fair ) Jolie opened up about her ‘difficult’ divorce with her former partner of 10 years Brad Pitt, alongside insight on her current film she is working on ” First They Killed My Father”. The film is extremely personal and close to Jolie’s heart, yet has brought tension to the table due to a method used in order to cast children for the upcoming Netflix film.
It was mentioned by many sources that casting directors ” set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism [in which ] they put money on the table and asked the [children] to think of something they needed the money for, and then to snatch it away”
This method of casting in order to find children with ” raw emotion” has been deemed controversial by many different online media sources, and magazines. Jolie was quoted by Vanity Fair regarding the casting where she mentioned, ” Srey Moch [the girl who was ultimately chosen for the part] was the only child [ who had ] started at the money for a very, very long time. She was forced to give it back [ and became ] overwhelmed with emotion. All these different things came flooding back”
Jolie later mentioned with a heavy heart that Srey Moch had wanted the money for the funeral of her grandfather who had recently passed.

An insider speaking to Page Six a celebrity news site mentioned, ” The company wants the magazines to promote each other’s stories that are newsworthy. However, releasing another publication’s piece prematurely ” especially a cover story ” would be considered ” a major screw-up”.
