Angelina on being an actor in Hollywood

Speaking with The Wall Street Journal Magazine in a new interview, Angelina said: "I wouldn’t be an actress today. My body reacts very strongly to stress. My blood sugar goes up and down. I suddenly had Bell’s palsy six months before my divorce. When I was starting out, it wasn’t as much of an expectation to be as public, to share so much. I’ve just been around so long and there’s been everything said."
