Christina Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 because of a mutation in a gene passed down from her mother, also a breast cancer survivor.

To make sure she'd be disease free, she had a double mastectomy.

While she's come to terms with being a cancer survivor she still knows things are different, saying:

"I miss my exquisite breasts sometimes."

That's a reference to a line in her movie Anchorman! Ha!

But she did actually have a pretty tough time, dealing with something so personal so publicly.

She said:

"The good thing is that we got the information out, but talking about the facts of the disease, I didn’t have to see what was going on with me. I think when it slowed down, all that came crashing down."

She said her family, friends, future husband Martyn LeNoble and a spiritual advisor helped her overcome a "total emotional collapse."

We're so glad that she's healthy both in mind and body!

What a strong lady!
