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!!!

Filed under: Angelina JolieInspirationHealthCancer

Taking inspiration from Angelina Jolie, CNN's Zoraida Sambolin spoke up and announced that she too needed a mastectomy, and that she had just been diagnosed with breast cancer!

Here's what she originally announced:

"For a while I have been struggling because I was diagnosed with breast cancer about three weeks ago and I was trying to figure out how do I share this story, how do I tell the viewers that I'm going to be gone for a while, because I have chosen to have a double mastectomy. Angelina Jolie's story really hit home."

Now, after having had her mastectomy, we're getting a CNN update from Zoraida herself!

This is so fab — it sounds like she's really doing well, taking it all day-by-day! We can't even imagine having to go through this, but she's being such a badass about it!

Feel better soon, Zoraida!!

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Bring Pax And Maddox To World War Z Premiere!

brad pitt and angelina jolie bring pax and maddox to world war z premiere

There's nothing like a good old fashioned family movie night!

This weekend, Angelina Jolie made her first public appearance since her mastectomy to support her man Brad Pitt at the London premiere of World War Z!

But Brangelina didn't celebrate the occasion alone! They brought along their kiddies Pax and Maddox to watch their pops kick some serious zombie booty!!

The four looked like a perfectly happy family as they walked the red carpet together, and is it just us or are they boys definitely inheriting Brad's sense of style??

We guess going to movie premieres is just one of the many perks of having super famous parents, but hopefully Pax and Maddox didn't have any zombie related nightmares!!
