brad pitt comments on angelina breast cancer

Real love shines today!

As you know, Angelina Jolie decided to reveal her choice to have a double mastectomy in her preventative fight against cancer — the disease that took her own mother.

It obviously wasn't easy for the actress/all-around goddess, but she made the right choice for herself and her family.

Brad Pitt took some time to release his own thoughts on the matter, proudly supporting his life partner, saying:

"Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie’s choice, as well as so many others like her, absolutely heroic. I thank our medical team for their care and focus. All I want for is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children. This is a happy day for our family."

We're tearing up!!

Thank goodness Angie has such a strong support team behind her in her hubby-to-be and those beautiful, beautiful children!

    she made the decision and I support that. I think she felt this was what she needed to do, but I can't say I agree with her. It seems very drastic to do this on a chance that she'll develop cancer. I wouldn't do the same. However, I did not watch my mother die in her 50s and I don't have 7 kids, so I guess she weighed that, but a percentage chance, even 87% doesn't mean she'd ever have contracted cancer. However, good luck to her and I hope she has a good recovery.

    I don't know I would call it heroic. It was more of an intelligent choice.

    I love Brad Pit and Angelina Jolie. But I find you completely hyprocritic saying "true love" rings true when other actors (leean Rhymes and Eddie whats his name) came togther in the same way as brad and angelina and Tori and Dean. But you give attention to Brandy has been fake model and give others shit for decissions they made years ago. Angelina is smart amazing. Maybe being a bigger star gives her more leeway in your eyes for taking a married man.

    Heroic? I'd do the same thing if I had health insurance and/or millions of dollars. Heroic indeed…

    im proud of angie to make such a wise desicion. since im a big fan, this news realy shocks me, but im also proud of her for being that strong. if i were her, i would do the same thing. i mean, what i wouldnt do to be with my children as long as i can. and brad, youre amazing for taking care of angelina. im proud of you. i wish the best for the family, angelina, brad, and the 6 lovely children. Angie has so much things to do and her mission to save the world is still going on. I also think this mastectomy doesnt make her any less of a woman. she's still perfect to me. perfect mother, perfect actress, perfect humanitarian, just a perfect human being.

    Good for her but she is still a homewrecker.

    Honestly don't get how this is heroic. Not to bash her, but I know two women who've done the same thing. It's common sense.

    So if she has 50% chance of ovary cancer does that mean she had to have her ovaries removed? Or how does that work? Removing the breasts stops the ovary cancer part?



  13. 13

    I love them together! True love knows NO BOUNDS…

    Re: Amanda – I'm sorry, I didn't realize Brad isn't an adult. Here I was thinking the breakdown of his marriage is really the fault of him AND HIS WIFE! Jen is not some sweet little angel. Brad has said that he was unhappy with himself and the marriage so blaming Angie is REALLY junior high. grow up!



  15. 15

    Re: IzzyLizzy – no but removing your ovaries cause a whole other set of problems. They aren't just chunks of fat like breasts, they affect your entire system. For one thing, she would need to take hormones for the rest of her life, which I hope is a long, long time.



  16. 16

    Oh please. This drip will say anything she wants him to; it's been known for years that Pitt get all of his personality through his women. Jolie is not heroic, she's an ignorant, self-indulgent asshole of a whore. I don't see her as brave or particularly smart, and the decision to mutilate herself is sad. With diligent monitoring she could have saved a ton of money, her own body parts, AND her life. And you liberal twats who are applauding her are retarded.

    YOU PEOPLE ARE SO SAD!!!! You take EVERYTHING Angelina does to say something about Jennifer Aniston and vice versa, that happened almost 10 years ago, get over it.
    Angie is happy with Brad, and Jen is happy with Justin. STOP IT

    I guess the 'heroic' is a little over stated. As Many here said, given financial possibility many of us would do it, especially with a strong history of this particular ailment in one's family. Nothing heroic about it. Intelligent attitude perhaps, but not heroic.
    Now, lets see… So, no breasts now? Hmmm… I am sure I read somewhere that Pitt has some weird tastes (like a skeletal looking women) and that makes me wonder if a mutilated skeletal body is his latest thing? :D How long will it be before he will realise it's totally awful? I think Miss Jolie should embrace herself for a nasty surprise. And please, I ask you all politely, don't harp to me about eternal love.

    Its a bit of a slap in the face "telling her story". What about the millions of MEN and women who have watched mothers suffer through breast cancer and could have the same possibilites as her. Millions of people cant afford double mastectomies and perfect medical teams and new breast implants. Millions of men and women suffer the experience and live with awful scars. Next time she's in africa why not eat a steak in front of starving children

    I've never liked either of them and found her globetrotting "Aid" work problematic in many ways, but her decision to make her decision public has completely changed my view of her. What a brave, eloquent woman. She' put her image and her career at risk as the biggest star in an industry which thrives on body fascism in order to benefit other women who might face the same hurdles and choices she has. Pitt's response is also lovely. I'm very impressed and even moved.

    I've just read through the other comments, and yes it's true that many others can't afford the excellent care that she's had but that's not her fault. That's the fault of people who don't want equality when it comes to health care access. I live in a country in which we do have nationalized health care, and that thought never crossed my mind until now, because we can have great health care if we need it. Instead of blaming angelina jolie, start learning about and fighting for proper health care.

    It's self preservation, not heroic, and the woman can certainly afford to have it done.
    After women have had kids, surgeries don't seem so scary. She has kids to get grown.

    I'd more call it absolute pragmatism, based partly on a sad personal experience with her own mother dying young from breast cancer…and Angie has the BRCA1 gene mutation.



  24. 24

    i still find it hard to beleive they werent screwing before the marriage break up… its sad her mother died and its sad she had to do this but doesnt take away all the evil twisted things she did…brad has no personaity at all its like he has had a personality removal ..

    why we love angie #inspiration #humanitarian #causes

    Surprise–Celebs have problems just like the rest of us…Smart decision, yes, but not worthy of the 'hero' medal the media wants to pin on her. I'd rather pin it on the unsung everyday heroes who are undergoing cancer treatment and still have to hold down a job or raise their kids while bearing the financial burden that cancer brings.



  27. 27

    We all would do the same if we had the money…..But I do have 1 question has she stayed the same size with her new breasts or has she become noticeably larger. I think there is more to it than the risk of Breast Cancer.
