Angelina Jolie's Topless, Post-Mastectomy Painting Will Be Sold For Charity!

angelina jolie topless portrait to be sold for charity

Angelina Jolie's double mastectomy CONTINUES to help others, but not in the way you might be thinking!

Swedish artist Johan Andersson has recently unveiled a painting he did depicting the actress posing topless just weeks after her surgery!

Although some people seem to find the beautiful piece of art controversial, the painter says this piece was very personal for him:

"My Mother had aggressive breastcancer when I was 15, the thought of her having to have a mesectomy really scared me and she was fortunate enough to have surgery without the masectomy. The recent news about Angelina stirred an anxiety within me leading me to paint this portrait."

Johan is now saying that he plans on putting his painting to good use, as he will be selling it for charity!

All of the proceeds will go towards the Falling Whistles campaign for peace in the Congo, a project that is very close to Angelina's heart. It's reported that the portrait is expected to bring in around $22,000!

We have to give Johan some MAJOR props here! Not only did he create a beautiful piece of art, but he managed to use it to help out others!

    How many times did that guy say "me" in his statement? My first thought when I read this article was. . .was this approved by Angelina?! Nowhere does it say that Angelina posed for this painting, knows about this painting, or is cool with his depiction of her, post-surgery. If she had nothing to do with this, then I'm completely offended and outraged. He could've done the same painting with a faceless woman. Why specifically Angelina? She's not the first, nor will she be the last woman who has a double mastectomy. Have some respect!

    Who would pay for such a horrible painting! It is one thing if she actually sat for the painter. But I doubt it.

    He forgot the two scars that go across each breast and the concave breast area. She still has small breasts in this painting. At least get it right. I know this from experience.

    Trying make money off of someone elses misfortunate is despicable. By the way, he is artistically challenged.

    It seems AJ really HAS become a saint….St Angie. Michael K's been saying it for years! I love Ange, but I can't understand all this 'brave hero' talk; I can't understand all the publicity…schmaltzy at best. I cry for all those 'brave' women who have never even been acknowledged, not in the least those well known celebrities like Sharon Ozborne, Christina Applegate, etc who barely got a mention in the mags. This procedure is not so uncommon now. It's something that probably ANY mother would do, if she wants to live to see her children grow up. Good on you Ange! But I wonder if there isn't a tad of publicity seeking here. I wonder…why all the hype?

    It's a beautiful piece of art! Not only this raise awareness on cancer but it also raise funds for those who are in need. Great job!

    In wonder how she feels about him using her likeness. It's interesting, but her face is from 15 years ago.

    He is not a talented artist, and I highly doubt that Angelina posed for him, let alone paid him to do this. Whoever painted this has clearly never studied art. It is not well-done, it's awful.

    All he did was smear out the nipples. It's rude and incorrect. I don't think people realize the real sacrifice anjie made.. huge scars.. etc…

    5 A Re: Dee Dee – So her aunt just died of breast cancer so I guess that was for publicity too uh? She makes a movie every 5 or 6 years but I guess that's publicity too uh? The only thing you or anybody else can bring up is her past or what she so call did in her past. But I guess you have never made mistakes uh?
