Brad Pitt appeared on Good Morning America on Monday and spoke today about Angelina Jolie's recovery from her double mastectomy earlier this year.
“Business as usual. She’s doing great. When she wrote her piece, we had already come out the other end and we’re feeling really good about it. We’re really surprised and moved by how many people are dealing with the same issue, or wondering about the same issue,” Brad told George Stephanopoulos. “Her idea was that if someone could learn from her story, then she would love to share that. But it’s just been a beautiful thing to watch and her focus now is that all people have access to the testing and know what they can do about it. And she has certainly shown if you do your research and make your decision, what’s best for you, it doesn’t have to be a scary thing.”
Jolie revealed her that she had underwent the preventative surgery last month in a New York Times article titled "My Medical Choice." The Oscar winner's mother died of ovarian cancer at the age of 56 in 2007 and her maternal grandmother also had the disease, and Jolie is a carrier of the BRCA-1 gene, which gave her an 87% chance of developing cancer.
