Angelina Jolie not jolly with single life
Angelina Jolie has found it "hard" being single. The 42-year-old actress filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September 2016 after a two-year marriage and 12-year romance.
But the brunette beauty has admitted she never wanted to not be in a relationship, and although she appears to be coping with the break-up she has admitted she is simply putting on a brave face.
The Lara Croft: Tomb Raider star told The Telegraph newspaper: "Sometimes it appears I'm pulling it all together, but really I'm just trying to get through my days. Emotionally, it's been a very difficult year.
"I don't enjoy being single. It's not something I wanted. There's nothing nice about it. It's just hard."
And the movie icon, who recently underwent a double mastectomy and had Bell's Palsy on her face, has admitted since the break-up she has had to "monitor" her health.
She added: "My health is something I have to monitor."
Although Angelina - who has six children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and nine year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - managed to treat the condition, which causes temporary weakness or paralysis in the face by using acupuncture, she didn't treat the ailment for a long time because she was so focused on putting her family first.
