Brad Pitt has praised his wife’s decisions to undergo a double mastectomy and have her fallopian tubes removed in an effort to prevent cancer.

Brad Pitt opened up to the Today show about his wifes recent health battles saying “There was no vanity to my wife’s approach,”  “It was mature … she was doing it for the kids, and she was doing it for her family so we could be together.”

Angelina had a double masectomy in 2013 when tests showed she had the mutation gene. Then earlier this year, another test showed signs of ovarian cancer so she underwent removal of her ovaries and fallopian tubes. Angelina then suffered an early onset of menopause.

She never feared any of it would make her less of a woman, thanks to her husbands support.

Angelina has raised great awareness for women’s health and we truly admire her.

  • Our health is of the most important.


  • She has dealt with difficult situations with Grace.


  • thats a really fantastic interview. I admire that couple.


  • For someone whose livelihood depends a lot on her appearance, she is very brave to take this step. And to then share it with the world, awesome. Yes, there are worse sufferings in the world, but Angelina can help by sharing her story. Well done Ange!


  • Angelina is one amazing inspirational woman/mum. She works extremely hard for her family. Brad is a strong resilient husband. When I heard Angelina had a genes test for bra a 1 & 2. I made the same enquiry because my father and 2 cousins had breast cancer. Only to be shocked to find out the cost is anywhere between $500- $2,000. The Australian government needs to step in and help woman get this test done


  • yeah def’ hard thing to go through but she has handled this well and shown how she has handled this with a level head.


  • Such a lovely couple. Dont we all deserve to be loved in such a way?
    Its just very beautiful to say a couple that truly love and adore each other.


  • Selfless. A rare quality in a lot of people unfortunately.


  • i think she is just amazing, and a great ambassador and inspiration for women world wide -yeah she has money, looks and an adorable husband and beautiful family – but deep down she is just strong and we should all find our inner strength


  • Angelina is an amazing woman and an amazing mother. Selfless really. And I can see their bond is just stronger for what she’s gone through. She is an example to us all.


  • I fully support her as she is helping to create future good health for herself. All the best to her and her family.


  • What a brave woman and such a supportive husband


  • She is so amazing to have the guts to go ahead and do that, and he is so wonderfully supportive.


  • I’m not sure that having a double mastectomy was actually the way to go. I have fear that too many women unnecessarily removed one or both breasts.
