She may not be spoilt but Angelina Jolie is certainly a spotty as she's revealed she has the chicken pox and will be unable to attend the premiere and upcoming promotional events for her film Unbroken.

A video was released, which was issued by Universal Pictures, showing a very spotty Angelina.

Ange appeared upset but in good spirits as she revealed the news she will not be able to be there to represent the late Louis Zamperini, who the film is based on.

In the video message the 39-year-old said: “I just wanted to be clear and honest about why I would be missing the Unbroken events in the next few days, which is that I found out last night that I have chicken pox.

“So, I will be home itching and missing everyone and I can't believe it because this film means so much to me. I just can't believe it, but such is life. There it is. Send everyone my love and I hope everything goes well.”

Also via universal the Hollywood actress said: “You have to laugh at the timing. I was sure nothing could stop me from supporting Unbroken.

“I am heartbroken to miss our premiere, most of all the chance to be there with Louie’s family, Phil’s daughter Karen, veterans and all the guests who are coming.”

Universal Pictures 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.”

Ange clearly posted the video to show she was actually unwell as opposed to letting people think she wasn’t attending to avoid awkward questions about the recent Sony email threads leaked claiming she is a ‘minimally spoilt brat’.

The Email threads were sent between Sony Pictures co-chairperson Amy Pascal and movie producer Scott Rudin.

They were leaked and published by Gawker claiming Ange is a ‘minimally talented spoiled brat’.

Although seemingly a bit of a harmless comment, it’s VERY awkward. Especially when the person being targeted is one of the most famous actresses in the world.
