Angelina Jolie has opened up about her plans to undergo more surgery to prevent the chances of her developing cancer.
“There’s still another surgery to have, which I haven’t yet,” the 38-year-old Maleficent actress told EW in their latest issue. “I’ll, you know, I’ll get advice from all these wonderful people who’ve I’ve been talking to, to get through the next stage.”
“I’m great!…I’m very happy I made the decision. I was very fortunate to have great doctors and very, very fortunate to have a good recovery and have a project like Unbroken to have something to be really focused on, to be getting healthy for, and to be able to just get right back to work,” Angelina added.
“I feel very, very close—much closer—to other women, and women who are going through the same thing,” Angelina continued. “Wherever I go, usually I run into women and we talk about health issues, women’s issues, breast cancer, ovarian cancer. I’ve talked to men about their daughters’ and wives’ health. It makes me feel closer to other people who deal with the same things and have either lost their parents or are considering surgeries or wondering about their children…The reason that I wrote it was to try to communicate and help and connect with other women and other families going through the same thing. And…I was very, very moved by all the support and kindness from so many people.”
Angelina bravely underwent a double mastectomy last year.
