Brad Pitt: I'm Emotional Over Angelina Jolie's Double Mastectomy

Brad Pitt has spoken in an interview about his partner Angelina Jolie‘s decision to go public with her double mastectomy surgery, which she wrote about earlier in the week in an op-ed piece.

“I’m quite emotional about it, of course,” the 49-year-old World War Z star told USA Today. “She could have stayed absolutely private about it and I don’t think anyone would have been none the wiser with such good results. But it was really important to her to share the story and that others would understand it doesn’t have to be a scary thing. In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and us stronger.”

Brad added that during the process, Angelina traveled to the Congo, London, and New York. “This was during Stage 2 [when the double mastectomy was performed],” he said. “Literally it was just weeks after she’d had truly major surgery.”

He also chatted about how he and Angie‘s children, Maddox, 11, Pax, 9, Zahara, 8, Shiloh, 6, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 4, dealt with the process. “We set up our own little post-op recovery that became pretty fun. You make an adventure out of it.”

SO HAPPY SHE HAS HIM IN HER LIFE. HE’S A GREAT GUY!! Having an aunt who I adored die of Cancer was a horrible thing for my family and especially her children. Wish we knew back then about this, we could have had her longer in our lives. THANK YOU Angie and Brad for getting this out to woman/men and making them aware of the choices one has in their own destiny.

@Rich Girls: yes but the question is why do if for his lame **** movie instead wait until maleficent comes out in a years time when she’s really fully healed. It is because she is on percocets and not thinking clearly, I would not be surprised if he wrote the article for wwz.

No she really did it but my issue is why is every other story about this? Raises suspicions about her agenda. The woman is not sqeemish. She has had fake boobs, plastic surgery, did needles and cut herself. She doesnt mind mutilation anyway.

Stop whining and skip posts you don’t like. There are plenty of other choices. It is so wonderful and generous that the JPs are willing to share their story. Anybody who has been through tnis or knows someone that has been through this is painfully aware how scary & lonely it can be. Once again, the JPs send good into the world.

Brad is good, good man!

troll in pain @ 05/15/2013 at 11:44 am

fat tick old manny embarrasses herself AGAIN and troll is in pain- so much pain they must spew lies about the sweet JPs. What a very sad life and your clearly bad karma will come back to bite you if it hasn’t already.

For those who fell off put by Angelina making the decision. NBC Today Show piece today on Angelina’s decision. In the segment, they talk to a pregnant mother of two toddlers who made the same decision as Angelina to have preventive surgery.

why bother ur azzz coming and posting on JPs thread???? get the h2ll out of here…plain and simple

she’s had so much plastic surgery, this was a cake walk

@Rich Girl & Just Terrible: first of all Angelina only wrote one article and Brad only wrote one statement about the whole issue. It’s the media who is splitting the articles into several pieces and publish it separately.

Next to Just Terrible – what an ugly person you are inside. Not everyone is like Jennifer Aniston to say something personal whenever she has a movie out. WWZ will be a success without this because Brad Pitt is famous and very famous outside USA.

Both of you have showed me that there still people out there who are ugly inside that they simply cannot even sympathise with someone who is going through a terrible ordeal. The only thing I can say is that Karma is a *****

@anustin:

This is what a “comment and share” section is for. It doesnt say “POSITIVE comment and share” so anyone could write whatev their opinion is, so you could get the H out of the thread if you cant deal.

@Rich Girls:

She made her comments. The MEDIA is the one mentioning every chance they can, so get over yourself already. Go read a book and stop being so damn negative.

I am so happy Angie has Brad in her life and helps her through everything.

Brad is the most amazing man ever.

@Sara:

I save my sympathy for peeps with no money and healthcare, who have no nannies to help with young children, who dont have a luxirious hospital room with docs and nurses waiting on thrm 24/7 in their mansion. Yea I m such a bad person that I dont really care about Queen Angelina, but real peeps in need.

Walk the walk.. and talk the talk our Beautiful drop dead gorgeous Iron Lady Angelina Jolie<3
She is so positive that makes others be stronger than she is. She has a goal that is ahead of her humanitarian. Nothing can prevent what she wants to be…. God bless you Angie, Brad and your six beautiful children's…
Good morning to all JPs fans around the World :)))

Now will announce it constantly! to take the focus off of the failure that he and World War Z had.
