Angelina Jolie has to miss her Unbroken premiere because she has chicken pox

Angelina Jolie has chicken pox — and the itchy, miserable red spots will be keeping her away from the premiere of Unbroken.

Jolie directed and produced the film, which tells the story of real-life American Olympic runner Louis Zamperini, who was held as a Japanese prisoner of war during World War II.

"I can't believe it, cause this film means so much to me," Jolie says in a video posted to Universal Pictures' YouTube page. "I will be home, itching and missing everyone….I just can't believe it, but such is life, there it is."

Take it from someone who suffered through a pretty terrible bout of chicken pox as a kid, Angie: Oatmeal baths and lots of ice cream, that's the stuff.
