    She will show people that they can have informed choices and power over their own lives.

    Angelina is by far and away the most overrated actress in Hollywood. I really don’t understand why people and the media worship the grounds she walks on. She could take a dump in the middle of Times Square in New York and the media would hail her as “brave” for showing the world that you can go to the bathroom in public. Get real!

    Yes she did a brave thing but millions of other people do it too. Not just the surgery but even adopting. She’s got the $$$ to afford it while most peoples insurance doesnt cover it. People would need to give up their life savings to get that done. People in regular life who do it while struggling, where is their Time magazine cover. Nothing against Angelina, I like her but making her into Mother Theresa and giving her mag covers for something which women have been doing for years in unnecessary.

    I commend her for being so open…she is drawing awareness to cancer and I don’t care if she can act, dance or sing she is bring a discussion to an issue that most women are not comfy with. Breast and Ovarian Cancer runs in my family and the women in my family look at it as a taboo as do many woman in the world especially when it comes to taking away a body part. Most parts of the world especially the country I am from look down on it and feel like you;re loosing your femininity…that your no longer a woman. For her to be open about it and knowing that her voice counts then this will open the discussion that many of us are afraid to have with our doctors and family members.

    No offense but where was that “Angelina Effect” when The Tourist came out. She boosts adoption rates but not the box office sales.

    There was not a lot of publicity when Christina Applegate had it done and other stars that have had it done. Such a big deal over Jolie. The majority of women cannot afford to even have the test done, let alone the surgery. They just have to take their chances. If Jolie could get it fixed that all women can have this test free and help in paying for the surgery, then it would make a difference.

    This is a ridiculous. She had a mastectomy! She took a test that cost $3,000! She was able to afford it and that’s that! She didn’t cure cancer for goodness sakes. She wasn’t even dying! She took a preventative measure and she shouldn’t be on the media 24/7 for this kind of thing. Many women die because they can’t afford this test excluding the fact they would have to get a second opinion and find out too late. Many women survive. Where the hell is their cover? that’s because they’re nobodies and Angelina – a movie star is sooo important…

    Give me a break. Thumbs down all you want because I know this site worships her but I just wanted to give my 2 cents.

    I love her and welcome any and all positive attention on the real Angelina. I find it amusing how so many haters are suddenly backtracking their previous negative opinions on Ange. The rest of us have seen her true, heartfelt goodness from the get-go. We’ve always known both she and Brad don’t do anything unless it comes from the heart. Bless her!!

    Beauty, Compassionate, Talent, Brains and so much more!

    She is a TRUE class act!

    So much for the been there done that sex symbol Ange used to be, thats riri and miley, etc now. This chick in her older years wants to become a tatooed, ex-slvtty, ex-junkie, ex-cutter Mother Teresa. And its working. Her agent is fvcking brilliant!!

    She’s brave and genuine. I love the fact she accepts she’s famous and try to do something good with it, getting attention to good causes.

    @Ellen: I disagree. Putting a face to this is necessary. While there are women and men who have had this procedure, many more have no knowledge of the BRCA gene, or the steps taken. Now that a public figure has come forward, those who may have a family history can arm themselves with this knowledge and approach their family doctor. Angelina did address the issue of cost in the New York Times article.

    STOP HATING ON ANGIE BECAUSE SHE CAN AFFORD THE TESTS. SHE HAS WORKED HARD SINCE SHE WAS 16 YEARS OLD. SHE PURSED HER DREAMS AND MADE IT HAPPEN. FAMILY INVESTED IN A GREAT INSURANCE POLICY. PLEASE DONOT HATE, WHAT MOST OF YOU ARE ABLE OF DOING YOURSELF!

    @Tina: Angelina did address the issue of cost especially regarding those with low income in the New York Times article.

    @Ellen:

    It is isn’t just the money that she has that made the treatment successful. Please consider the following:

    - proactive thinking and the DECISION to get tested
    - research and weighing all the options of what is best for her and her family
    - courage to go through with the recommended treatment
    - team of top rated doctors
    - having a loving, supporting family there by your side
    - having an intimated partner who reassures you that his love will only deepen, encouraging you along the way in case fear or doubt grip you
    - getting tested early enough to minimize risk
    - getting tested BEFORE diagnosis of breast OR ovarian, uterine or cervix cancer
    - great love for your children, not wanting them to live without a mother
    - great love for your spouse, a reason to grow old together

    Angie had a concert of persons on her side and by her side. She did not go through this alone. She is a very blessed woman.

    Brad and Angie really do have a deep love for each other. Love is such a beautiful thing.

    It seems like a drastic measure that should be a last resort.
