Brad Pitt Emerges For The First Time Since Praising Angelina's "Heroic" Health Choice
Brad Pitt appeared to be in good spirits as he arrived at Paramount Studios in LA today. It has likely been an emotional couple of days for the actor and his family, as news of his fiancée Angelina Jolie's preventative double mastectomy was revealed earlier this week. Angelina's heartfelt and honest op-ed for the New York Times was published on Tuesday, and she spoke candidly about her decision to undergo the procedure after learning that she was at high risk for developing breast and ovarian cancers. Angelina will also reportedly be planning to have her ovaries removed as well.
Shortly after Angelina's article was published, Brad released his own touching statement to a UK newspaper, and spoke to USA Today about Angelina's brave and empowering decision, saying that "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."
Brad will also be back in the spotlight soon when he steps out to start promoting World War Z — he'll be in Australia next month — ahead of its June 20 release.
