Angelina Jolie’s Shocking Health Struggles Over the Years


Angelina Jolie has always been a mega-babe and respected actress in Hollywood, but celebrities are just like us — they have health struggles and issues in life that the rest of us have to put up with, regardless of being insanely wealthy and recognized in every household around the world. Jolie herself has quite the impressive list of accomplishments under her belt, and while it seems from the outside like she can do it all, the actress has suffered some health scares that have changed her life forever.

Unlike some stars who keep this info under the radar, Jolie is open about it, and able to spread awareness on it. Her own mom died from ovarian cancer at only 56 years old, and since Angie is a mom of 6 herself, she’s prioritized herself.


Here are all the health issues that this seemingly perfect A-lister has had to deal with over the years, and how she’s inspired her community and the rest of us.

In 2013, Angelina wrote a guest essay for the NYT opening up about the double mastectomy surgery she had, and how it was a major way to prevent breast cancer. It involved multiple procedures that took three months to complete. Dropping cancer risks to under 5%, but many women with the same “faulty gene” as Angie put it in her essay, are scared to undergo this. The gene is known as the BRCA1 gene, which puts women at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer.
