Angelina Jolie's decision to have a preventative double mastectomy in February probably wasn't the easiest decision (we're sure it was as difficult as they come), but it was the right decision as Angelina revealed she had an 87% chance of getting breast cancer due to a genetic predisposition.
It's true that she kept it quiet, but we're positive she had the support of those closest to her! Now, we're hearing about all the support from her peers now that she's spoken publicly about what she's had to go through!
Here's some of what the celebs are saying on Twitter!
