In addition to the double mastectomy that Angelina Jolie underwent in February, we learned in her New York Times op-ed, she also plans on having an oophorectomy — ovary removal surgery, a procedure recommended for high-risk women before the age of 40. Without this, her BRCA1 gene still places her risk of ovarian cancer at 50 percent.


The surgeries have strengthened her bond with Brad Pitt, who made his own statement: "Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie’s choice, as well as many others like her, absolutely heroic. I thank our medical team for their care and focus." And brangelina's wedding might now be happening sooner rather than later, reports a source in the Daily Mail. "Angie is keen on a wedding and the kids are clamouring for a marriage and keep asking Brad and Angie when it's happening."

Her estranged father, Jon Voight, who found out at the same time as the rest of America, says: "I was as surprised as anyone and deeply moved by the way she’s handled this. She’s a very extraordinary person. The way she examined it and what she shared." [People, NYDN]
