Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Open Up in 'Today' Interview (Video)
The 40-year-old actress and directer discussed how she used the same doctor to remove her ovaries who previously treated her late mother Marcheline Bertrand, who passed away in 2007.
“We had some of the same nurses, some of the same doctors,” Angelina said. “So, the doctor that did my ovary surgery was my mother’s doctor. And apparently my mother had said to her, ‘Promise me you will take Angie’s ovaries out.’ So when we kind of got together, we both had a big cry, and she said, ‘I promised your mother, and I gotta do this.’”
During the interview, Brad praised his wife’s bravery and courage.
“There was no vanity to my wife’s approach,” Brad said. “It was mature. ‘This is our life and we’re gonna make the best of it.’ There was a strength in that. It was just another one of those things in life that makes you tighter, and she was doing it for the kids, and she was doing it for her family so we could be together.”
