Brad Pitt: Angelina Jolie Mastectomy "Absolutely Heroic"

by at . Comments

The morning after Angelina Jolie published an op-ed in The N.Y. Times that revealed her decision to have a double mastectomy, Brad Pitt has issued a statement.

One in which he praises his life partner in no uncertain terms.

"Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie's choice, as well as many others like her, absolutely heroic," he told London's Evening Standard.

"I thank our medical team for their care and focus."

"All I want is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children," said Pitt, with whom she has six. "This is a happy day for our family."

In her op-ed piece, Jolie described her difficult choice to have surgery because genetic tests showed her to have a high risk of developing the disease.

Her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died of ovarian cancer.

Bertrand was only 56, which resonated with Jolie, 37.

She also expressed how much she leaned on Pitt, 49, whom she described as "loving and supportive," and there for her "for every minute of the surgeries."

We wish her a speedy recovery and admire her courage!

You can change your name, but your attitude is easily recognizable. I thought you went away, it was a nice break, this website returned to it's intended state of humor and light-hearted gossip. You should troll elsewhere, you don't fit in here.
