Angelina Jolie to Miss ‘Unbroken’ Premiere Due to Chicken Pox

In a video posted Friday, “Unbroken” director Angelina Jolie explained that she will not be attending upcoming events for the film, which would include its L.A. premiere Monday, due to what she said is a case of chickenpox.

Jolie’s name has been in the press the past week after leaked Sony emails revealed nasty exchanges about the director and actress between producer Scott Rudin and Sony co-chair Amy Pascal, and again after her film was completely shut out from Golden Globe nominations.

Unbroken” opens in theaters nationwide Dec. 25.
