The year that saw Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s parting away was not only a hard one in terms of their relationship things, but it emerged as a difficult one for the actress’ health too.

What is Bell’s Palsy?
Bell’s palsy is facial paralysis that occurs on the half of the face and affects the muscles too. Other effects can be there on hearing and taste also. The impact is so worse that the affected side of the face even sees the stoop after some time.
