Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Talk Family, Work, and Health

Genevieve Fish

It’s no secret that we’re in awe of the relationship between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. They have such a strong partnership, and their love for one another and their six children is inspiring, to say the least. But in the last couple of years, we were especially blown away by Jolie’s decision to have a double mastectomy and her ovaries removed, as well as her choice to make the invasive procedures a public matter.

Her New York Times article last spring shows how the actress, humanitarian, and mother is an honest depiction of female strength and vulnerability. “I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt,” writes Jolie. “I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren.”
