    Smart move. She’s lucky she can afford to get reconstructive surgery afterwards. They should offer reconstructive surgery to all women who need it.

    I have such deep respect for that woman. She contributes to the world in so many ways through her actions and her dedication by bringing awareness to actual issues.
    She has all my support, may she recover very soon.

    @amy: Some country such as France does offer reconstructive surgeries for the women who undergo this procedure. It’s a shame that a rich and “developed” country such as the USA has such an individualistic health care policy.

    Gabby Says:

    Absolutely amazing of her to publicize something like this. Breast cancer kills so many women every year. It takes a lot of courage to undergo a double mastectomy and it takes even more to be so open about it. I really do commend her and all the other women who have undergone the procedure, as well as, all the women around the world who are fighting breast cancer.

    I think she is paranoid for doing it, and of course she has to make it public to gain some sympathy

    tinamarie Says:

    @Annie: While I don’t like her as a person or an actress I do commend her for this. It was a very hard and brave thing to do. It’s a very touching thing and for her to talk about it should be very moving for any women.

    Been getting caught up on the theread and just have to laugh at the trolls. They’ve been wishing Angie ill for over 8 years. Now they’re claiming that we’ve done the same to Ticky and other celebs when that is in fact a bold-faced lie. At no point since I first clapped eyes on Ticky’s harline adjustment have I ever wished her ill or dead. We have wished her to go away, to grow up, get over herself, to move on, to expand her world, to get a life, to stop saying she wants kids when she doesn’t, to go somewhere other than Meh-hee-co, to stop stalking Brad and Angie, to stop lying and admit that she’s more than 2% to blame for her marriage imploding, to find something to talk about in interviews other than her hair, diet and excercise routines, to close her thighs and not say yes to every dirtbag in the world, to stop fronting like Squiggy bought that engagement ring, etc., etc., etc.
    .
    AT NO POINT HAVE WE WISHED TICKY ILL OR DEAD. There are Angie haters who have wished her ill or dead for almost 9 years and felt no remorse or shame and can’t bring themselves to admit to even 1 gram of sympathy or empathy for Angie and the situation she found herself in. I refuse to stoop to the trolls’ level and wish ill on Ticky. I still want her to go away or STFU…but I don’t wish her ill and I never have. The fact that Angie’s fans take the high road in this regard underscores what bottom-feedling lowlifes the haters are. Haters hate on. One day it’ll come back to bite you in the ass. Too bad we’ll probably never hear about…

    Angelina is a strong woman, she is not only thinking about herself but also gives awareness and support to other women. Her family must be so proud of her and so are her devoted fans. You are a true Hero!!!

    This is unusual for Angie to reveal something like this. It makes her more human.

    hm Says:

    yeah, and let’s not forget the women who aren’t famous that go through this procedure alone or who develop cancer and can’t afford it — strong women aren’t just the ones you read about on a blog or magazine!!

  22. 22
    hm Says:

    ..but i hope women don’t take what she did so literal & go out and do the same thing because they think they MIGHT have cancer 40 yrs down the road — strangely enough this could become a fad and that scares me a little..

    Lara Says:

    Her penchant for self-mutilation in the past, including disfiguring tattoos, self-distructive addiction, risky sexual behavior and now this….hmm …it does enter the mind. (all cries for help)
    The benefit of the doubt goes to her and I do wish her well .
