In an interview with NBC, Brad Pitt has opened up about his wife Angelina Jolie’s very serious and scary operations.
Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy in 2013 and had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in March this year.
Jolie lost her mother and grandmother to ovarian cancer and her aunt to breast cancer.
After extensive testing, it was discovered the Jolie too carried the gene that predisposes her to the same illnesses.
She then went forward making the preventative decisions and Pitt was completely supportive.
“Whatever’s got to be done to keep the family together and keep the family together as long as possible is gonna be done … This was her charge, no question. It’s a scary decision. There’s many things that can go wrong and many different directions” he said.
Jolie also spoke about how grateful she was for her husband’s support saying “I knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn’t something where I was gonna feel less of a woman, because my husband wasn’t gonna let that happen. I made the choices I made because I believed they were right for me”.
