Brad Pitt was spotted wearing all black (a trend of late) while leaving a meeting in Los Angeles, California yesterday (May 15, 2013).
Brad’s fiancee Angelina Jolie recently underwent a double mastectomy because the actress has a genetic variant that puts her at high risk for ovarian and breast cancer. The actor released a touching statement regarding Angelina decision.
How is Pitt feeling?
“I’m quite emotional about it, of course,” the World War Z star told USA Today. “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.”
Back at home, he and their six children devised a way to make recovery fun. “We set up our own little post-op recovery that became pretty fun. You make an adventure out of it.”
Overall, Pitt called it the experience “an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months. And 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. This isn’t going to get that.”
There is a lot of love going on there. Kudos to Brad, Angelina and their kids on pulling together for this.
