Kelly Osbourne Reveals She Also Has The Cancer Gene

Kelly Osbourne Reveals She Also Has The Cancer Gene

Like Angelina Jolie, Kelly Osbourne has revealed that she also has the cancer gene BRCA1 and plans to take preventative measures.

“I actually do have the cancer gene,” Osbourne, 30, said on Tuesday’s episode of her cancer survivor mother Sharon‘s chat show, “The Talk.” “My mom made all of us go and get tested after she found out she had it and got her double mastectomy.”

Jolie, 39, also underwent a preventive double mastectomy two years ago.

Regarding preventive measures, Osbourne said, “I agree with this one hundred percent. I know one day I will eventually have to do it too. If I have children I want to be there to bring them up.”

“I have been the child a child of a cancer survivor and being on that end as well has been really hard to deal with,” Osbourne said. “I’m so lucky to have the brave mother I have.”

Scary!

Angelina Jolie Had Her Ovaries Removed

Angelina Jolie Had Her Ovaries Removed

Angelina Jolie has had her ovaries removed. How brave of her to undergo surgery like that so that she can be around to meet her grandchildren in the future.

Two years ago, the actress underwent a double mastectomy and after a doctor detected a possible early sign of cancer, she decided to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed.

She wrote all about her experience in a New York Times op-ed (via People).

“I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt,” Jolie, 39, writes. “I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren.”

Jolie called her husband, Brad Pitt, who was on a plane within hours. “The beautiful thing about such moments in life is that there is so much clarity. You know what you live for and what matters. It is polarizing, and it is peaceful,” the mother of six writes.

That same day Jolie went to see the surgeon who had treated her mother Marcheline, who died in 2007 of ovarian cancer.

“She teared up when she saw me: ‘You look just like her,’ ” Jolie writes. “I broke down.”

She waited another five days for test results that would reveal whether there was cancer somewhere in her body. “I passed those five days in a haze, attending my children’s soccer game, and working to stay calm and focused.”

Finally the results came and she learned that the tumor test was negative. “I was full of happiness, although the radioactive tracer meant I couldn’t hug my children,” she writes. “There was still a chance of early stage cancer, but that was minor compared with a full-blown tumor. To my relief, I still had the option of removing my ovaries and fallopian tubes and I chose to do it.” It was no small decision on her part because removing her ovaries would push her into forced menopause.

Kudos to her for facing a scary problem head-on.

Chloe Sevigny Praises Angelina Jolie; Shades Jennifer Lawrence

Chloe Sevigny Praises Angelina Jolie; Shades Jennifer Lawrence

Chloe Sevigny gave an interview with V Magazine and inside, she praised Angelina Jolie, shaded Jennifer Lawrence and talked about her movie with Vincent Gallo, Brown Bunny.

On the topic of marketing and movie stars, she said, “So much is about marketing and selling the product. They’ll have a really preppy funny girl on the talk show rounds, and everybody adores her and loves her and wants to be her or f**k her, and then so many more people want to watch the movie or TV show.”

She continued, “I understand that star quality, how much value that carries. I love when a movie star is a great movie star. I think Angelina Jolie is a great movie star. I don’t think I can be that, or just be an actor. I don’t think I have the charisma. Which is probably why I never reached another level. I like Emma Stone. Whenever she’s herself, she’s really cute. Jennifer Lawrence I find annoying. Too crass.”

On the subject of Vincent Gallo and Brown Bunny, she said, “When Brown Bunny came out, there was a real puritanical press onslaught. They dragged me over the coals. Doing something transgressive like that, it was kind of inevitable, starting off with Kids. I love Vincent as an artist. We’re not friends anymore, which kind of makes me sad. Maybe we will be again one day. Now that I’m getting old, though, it’s hard to see people you haven’t seen in a while because everybody ages so much and I don’t want him to see me as older. But yeah, other than that, people love to say that snide, ‘She’s so indie, cooler than cool’ stuff. I don’t take offense to any of it.”

I’m not sure if she can really call anyone out for being crass, considering the fact that she gave Gallo a beej in their movie. I’d say that was pretty crass, but that’s just me. What are your thoughts on the matter?
