Hollywood star Angelina Jolie will miss upcoming events related to her film ‘Unbroken’ as she is down with chicken pox.

The actress-filmmaker shared the news in a video, saying she will not be attending the premiere of her upcoming directorial venture ‘Unbroken’ because of chicken pox.

Jolie, 39, who was diagnosed on Thursday night, said in the video she would be ‘home itching’ instead of walking the red carpet.

“I just want to be clear and honest why I will be missing the ‘Unbroken’ events in the next few days, which is that I found out last night that I have chicken pox,” Jolie said in a video released by Universal Pictures on YouTube.

“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,” she added.

‘Unbroken’, starring actor Jack O’Connell, revolves around Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who was tortured in a Japanese prisoner of World War II camp.

The film premieres in Los Angeles on December 15 before its release on the Christmas Day.
