Stars, they're just like us!
In mid-December, Angelina Jolie planned to attend the highly anticipated LA premiere of her new film, 'Unbroken,' but was suddenly unable to appear on the red carpet when she came down with a case of chickenpox!
"It was so absurd," the 39-year-old actress told Al Roker in a new interview with 'Today.'

"What was even stranger is during the day before I was trying to do interviews and kept thinking, 'What's happening?'" she said of contracting the unexpected illness.
Thankfully, Angelina's 51-year-old husband, Brad Pitt, and three of her six children — Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, and Shiloh, 8 — were able to stand in at the premiere in her place!
"It was really fun that my kids took the mantle. They took it very seriously when I said, 'You've got to represent mom. You have to do this for me.' They were excited about the mission." she said.
