    Angelina Jolie says she developed high blood pressure and Bell's palsy last year.

    The actress-director tells Vanity Fair that she credits acupuncture for her full recovery from the paralysis, which was caused by nerve damage and led one side of her face to droop.

    Jolie also opens up about her divorce from Brad Pitt in the magazine's September cover story, which was released online Wednesday. Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016.

    She says they care for each other and for their family and are "both working toward the same goal." She says she does not want her six children to worry about her and that "it's very important to cry in the shower and not in front of them."
