Steroids are often used as a treatment method and most people get better in around six months.

While the exact cause is unknown, it is thought to be caused by inflammation, and viral illnesses could be triggers.

In the seven years since they went their separate ways, Angelina has been hard at work on multiple film sets, while also building up her new fashion business, Atelier Jolie.

However, she is wary of taking projects that keep her away from her family for long periods.

‘We had to heal,’ the Oscar-winner continued. ‘There are things we needed to heal from.’

Although she didn’t touch on what those things were, she revealed that she is hoping to leave LA and her glitzy Hollywood life behind, as she ‘lost the ability’ during the split.

‘It’s part of what happened after my divorce. I lost the ability to live and travel as freely. I will move when I can,’ Angelina shared, explaining that she doesn’t have much of a social life and isn’t on the dating scene – instead choosing to spend her time with her children.

‘They are the closest people to me and my life, and they’re my close friends,’ she added. ‘We’re seven very different people, which is our strength.’

Angelina’s comments come after a post that her son, Pax, previously shared on social media was unearthed, in which he slammed Brad as a ‘world-class a**hole’.

The mom-of-six adopted the 20-year-old when he was a child, in 2007, with her now-ex following suit a year later.

However, a post Pax shared on Instagram on Father’s Day in 2020 has raised eyebrows, after he took aim at the Bullet Train star.

‘Happy Father’s Day to this world-class a**hole,’ he wrote across a photo of Brad winning an Oscar for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, via the MailOnline. ‘You time and time again prove yourself to be a terrible and despicable person.’

‘You have no consideration or empathy towards your four youngest children who tremble in fear when in your presence.

‘You will never understand the damage you have done to my family because you are incapable of doing so.’

‘You have made the lives of those closest to me a constant hell. You may tell yourself and the world whatever you want but the truth will come to light someday.

‘So Happy Father’s Day, you f**king awful human being.’

Brad and Angelina have yet to speak out publicly over the resurfaced image.
