Brad Pitt got back to work earlier today following his soon-to-be wife Angelina Jolie's announcement that she underwent a preventative double mastectomy.
The actor headed to Sony Studios to get back to business. He currently has two films, The Counselor and Voyage of Time in post-production. His apocalyptic flick World War Z hits theaters on June 21.
Jolie wrote a New York Times op-ed today admitting that she ended three months worth of treatment on April 27. Her doctors had estimated that she had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer. Jolie's mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died of breast cancer in 2007 at the age of 56. Brad, her future mother-in-law Jane, and her brother have all expressed pride today.
"Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie's choice, as well as so many others like her, absolutely heroic," Brad told The London Evening Standard. "I thank our medical team for their care and focus. All I want is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children. This is a happy day for our family."
Jolie also paid tribute to her fiance in the article for his undying support during the strenuous time.
"I am fortunate to have a partner, Brad Pitt, who is so loving and supportive," she wrote. "So to anyone who has a wife or girlfriend going through this, know that you are a very important part of the transition. Brad was at the Pink Lotus Breast Center, where I was treated, for every minute of the surgeries. We managed to find moments to laugh together. We knew this was the right thing to do for our family and that it would bring us closer. And it has."
