Angelina Jolie has decided to open up about her life following the separation from her famous husband, Brad Pitt. Angelina revealed that being single is not something that she wanted and she claimed that everything has been very hard for her.
“It’s been difficult. I don’t enjoy being single,” the Hollywood star said during an interview with the Sunday Telegraph. “It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard. Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together, but really I am just trying to get through my days,” Angelina went on to add.
However, Angelina did not only have to deal with the divorce. The star also went through some difficult moments because of her declining health. The famous actress revealed that this past year has been very hard for her. “Emotionally, it’s been a very difficult year, and I have had some other health issues. So my health is something I have to monitor,” she said.
Angelina is known to have had some serious health issues in the past. The star decided years back to undergo a double mastectomy, an intervention aimed at preventing the development of cancer. At that time, Angelina said that her husband had been by her side, offering her the support she needed. She recently revealed that she was also diagnosed with Bell’s palsy. “I am so happy I don’t have cancer, and that if I do get it, it will be delayed for a few years. The exchange for that peace of mind is quite good,” she said.
Angelina also claimed that she wants to focus on the good things in her life, like her children. “I think now I need to rediscover a little bit of the old me. I think we lose our way a bit. I have had a lot happen in my life, from certain people passing to health issues to raising the children. And it’s been a very good time to absorb and develop and grow,” she also said.
The divorce of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt is yet to be officially finalized. The formerly married couple shares six children, Maddox, who is 16, Pax, who is 13 years old, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, who is 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, who are 9 years old.
