Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt has praised his wife Angelina Jolie, for sharing her double mastectomy story with the World. Brad says that Angelina could have kept the whole thing quiet and nobody would have known, but she knew how much of a difference she could make, by telling the World about it.
Giving his views on the situation to USA Today, Pitt explained, "I'll tell you, it's such a wonderful relief to come through this and not have a spectre hanging over our heads. To know that that's not going to be something that's going to affect us. My most proudest thing is our family."
He added, "She could have stayed absolutely private about it, and I don't think anyone would have been none the wiser with such good results. But it was really important to her to share the story, and that others would understand it doesn't have to be a scary thing. In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger, and us stronger."
The double mastectomy has dramatically lowered the chances of Angelina Jolie getting cancer but the star is not done there. It was recently reported that Angelina Jolie will also have her ovaries removed, in a bid to lower the chances of her getting cancer even further.
