However, the premiere for the anticipated film left some stars with major health concerns as it was confirmed that both Angelina and Salma had to cancel all in-person appearances after a potential COVID-19 exposure.

The pair, along with Eternals co-star Gemma Chan, were unable to attend the Elle Women in Hollywood event on Tuesday after Disney confirmed they were pivoting to virtual appearances.

"Earlier today we were made aware of a possible exposure to COVID-19, and while all of our talent have tested negative, out of an abundance of caution, we are pivoting to virtual appearances rather than in-person events," a spokesperson for Disney shared on Tuesday.
