Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Open Up in 'Today' Interview (Video)

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are opening up about their lives in a rare interview with legendary journalist Tom Brokaw, which aired on The Today Show on Monday morning (November 2).

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.”

Angelina Jolie sits down for an interview with legendary news anchor Tom Brokaw during the Angelina Jolie: Unbroken special airing on NBC on Tuesday (December 9).

The 39-year-old actress was asked about directing the movie, a job that many people turned down as they thought it would be too tough.

“I was reminded of that thing that I think we all know but don’t often listen to, which is that if you really follow your true self and you do something for the right reasons and you give it your best, that that counts,” Angelina said. “And I didn’t know if I was the best director for this, the right director for this. I didn’t have the skill set going in to handle all of the things that it would take to make this film, but I was going to learn because I really, really cared, and that matters.”

Tune in for the special tomorrow night (December 9) at 10/9c on NBC!
