Angelina Jolie has revealed she is “very happy” with her decision to undergo a mastectomy last year.
“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,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
“I feel very, very close — much closer — to other women, and women who are going through the same thing. Wherever I go, usually I run into women and we talk about health issues, women’s issues, breast cancer, ovarian cancer,” she added.
“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.”
Sadly, the star also revealed that she must undergo further surgery: “There’s still another surgery to have, which I haven’t yet,” she explained.
“I’ll get advice from all these wonderful people who I’ve been talking to, to get through that next stage.”
