Angelina Jolie covers the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, and while she talks all about her new Disney flick Maleficent, she also revealed that she has plans to get another preventative procedure to ensure that she doesn't get cancer.
Jolie famously went public with her decision to get a preventative double mastectomy last spring because she was at a very high risk of developing breast cancer, and she tells the mag, "There's still another surgery to have, which I haven't yet. I'll, you know, I'll get advice from all these wonderful people who've I've been talking to, to get through the next stage."
Jolie didn't confirm what the procedure might be, but she previously revealed that she has a 50% chance of developing ovarian cancer, so it's speculated that the surgery might be something having to do with that. But maybe she's planning on having another kid with fiance Brad Pitt? We can't think of any other reason why she'd be waiting...
The Oscar winner says she's happy with her decision, adding, "I was very fortunate to have great doctors and very, very fortunate to have a good recovery and have a project like Unbroken to have something to be really focused on, to be getting healthy for, and to be able to just get right back to work."
"I feel very, very close—much closer—to other women, and women who are going through the same thing," she continued. "Wherever I go, usually I run into women and we talk about health issues, women's issues, breast cancer, ovarian cancer. I've talked to men about their daughters' and wives' health. It makes me feel closer to other people who deal with the same things and have either lost their parents or are considering surgeries or wondering about their children...The reason that I wrote it was to try to communicate and help and connect with other women and other families going through the same thing. And...I was very, very moved by all the support and kindness from so many people."
