Seems odd to me that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would land their second cover of PEOPLE Magazine in a row – and there’s not even one new quote from them in the entire interview. I get that they’re still trying to sell magazines, but enough already.
This week’s cover is all about Brad Pitt supporting Angelina during and following her double mastectomy surgeries.
Talk about teamwork. In the weeks surrounding Angelina Jolie’s preventive double mastectomy and subsequent reconstructive surgery, her fiancé, Brad Pitt, served as her No. 1 support.
At the bustling home they share with their six kids in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, “Brad did everything he could to keep things secret and protect Angie,” a family insider tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.
Using early morning appointments and rental cars to avoid discovery, “They really wanted Angie to be able to recover and rest before they shared the story,” says the insider.
The actress’s medical ordeal only deepened the bond between Jolie, 37, and Pitt, 49, a couple for seven years. Those close to them say the pair’s teamwork is always on display, in public and private.
“They are very loving and inspiring to each other, exchanging ideas,” says Jeremy Kleiner, a longtime exec at Pitt’s Plan B production company and producer on his upcoming movie World War Z.
On-set, “He would light up when his family showed up. It’s just a very cool thing to see.”

Wonder when Angelina will opt to have her ovaries removed. Will she give it some time? Has she already done it?
