Everyone is speaking out about Angelina Jolie’s preventative double mastectomy. Her fiance, Brad Pitt, handfuls of celebrities, even Dr. Oz. Now Brad Pitt’s mom, Jane, has spoken out in support of her son’s future wife.
After she revealed she underwent a preventative double mastectomy, Angelina Jolie’s family members are voicing their support.
“We’re so very proud of Angie, this means so much to our family especially our grandchildren. We love her dearly,” Brad Pitt’s mother, Jane Pitt, says in a statement.
Jolie’s brother, James Haven, also spoke out about her decision to undergo the procedure.
“My sister like our mother always put her children first,” he says in a statement. “I am so grateful to be her brother.”
In a New York Times op-ed piece, Jolie describes her difficult choice to have surgery after genetic tests showed her to have a high risk of developing the disease. Her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died of ovarian cancer at 56 in 2007.
Jolie, 37, also expressed how much she leaned on Pitt, 49, whom she described as “loving and supportive,” and there for her “for every minute of the surgeries.”
Pitt released a statement of his own on Tuesday, saying, “Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie’s choice, as well as many others like her, absolutely heroic. I thank our medical team for their care and focus.”
There’s another story swirling around this afternoon, saying that Brad is dying to marry Angelina sooner than later. A source told The Mail, “Angie is keen on a wedding and the kids are clamouring for a marriage and keep asking Brad and Angie when it’s happening. Brad has been caught up in production turmoil with his new film World War Z, so there’s been no wedding planning as a result, but Angie has said it will happen sooner rather than later. They are all for all intents and purposes married, but it’s become clear that it’s important to them to make it official.”
That would be great if they tied the knot!! I want pics!
It was also revealed today that Angelina was going to have her ovaries removed. I wonder if she’s going to freeze any eggs – or if she’s done having kids?
