Many have applauded Angelina Jolie for her strength since announcing her double mastectomy last month, so we were more than a bit surprised when Melissa Etheridge spoke out and said the decision was made out of fear and not bravery.
Brad Pitt was recently made aware of the singer's comments, and understandably he couldn't help but disagree.
The World War Z actor said:
If there's one thing Brad Pitt knows, it's kids!
So when the proud father of six heard Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had given birth to their first child this weekend, he offered some valuable advice for the new parents!
Brad was walking the red carpet at the New York premiere of World War Z when he told the mommy and daddy in training you can never have too many kids:
Sam Riley, you are officially on our radar.
This British import is about to blow up in the US, first starring in Disney's Maleficent with Queen Jolie, THEN a film with Michelle Williams!!!
Riles has officially joined the cast of Suite Française, a World War II drama based on a novel by Irene Nemirovsky about a young woman (Lucille Angellier aka Williams) in Nazi-occupied France who falls in love with a German officer.
The actor will play the role of French soldier, Benoit.
Oui oui cannot wait to see!!!

Brad Pitt is just the PERFECT family man.
The actor flew out to New York for a quick stint on Good Morning America. Interviewing to garner attention for his upcoming film World War Z, the hunky actor revealed that his sons were the ones who had influenced his decision in taking the movie role.
Though, more importantly, he dished on his wife Angelina Jolie’s decision to opt for a double mastectomy given her BRCA1 gene. He said:
"We were really surprised and moved by how many people were dealing with the same issue.”
He then added:
“Her focus now is to make sure that all people have access to the testing and know what they can do about it… If you do the research and do what's best for you, it doesn't have to be a scary thing, it can be an empowering thing.”
Ch-ch-check out his interview…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
You shut your mouth when you say things like this, Melissa Etheridge!
We’re kidding! But wow did this catch us off-guard!
Angelina Jolie’s choice to undergo a preventative double mastectomy has been lauded as extremely courageous, but this singer doesn’t feel that way.
Etheridge, who beat breast cancer, said:
She. Is. A. Saint!
We’ve been inspired by Angelina Jolie’s choice to preventatively undergo a double mastectomy, and she just keeps on surprising us!
Brad Pitt revealed that his lady love was able to find out about her BRCA gene mutation thanks to tests, but not everyone has access to them. The World War Z star revealed:
While most people were busy freaking out about Facebook introducing hashtags, the Supreme Court was busy making what some are calling a "landmark ruling" against companies putting patents of human genes!
Angelina Jolie is one of the many people excited about the huge decision as it ties directly with her recent decision to get a double mastectomy!
