BREAKING NEWS: Angelina Jolie undergoes preventative double mastectomy – what would you do?

Angelina Jolie has undergone a preventative double mastectomy. The actress revealed the news herself in an article she wrote for The New York Times titled ‘My Medical Choice.’

Angelina explained that she underwent the breast removal procedure because he has the mutated BRCA1 gene, which is known to increase a woman’s chance of getting both breast and ovarian cancers.

Angelina, 37, explained her decision in the article (which you can read in full here):

My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman.

Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy. I started with the breasts, as my risk of breast cancer is higher than my risk of ovarian cancer, and the surgery is more complex.

On April 27, I finished the three months of medical procedures that the mastectomies involved. During that time I have been able to keep this private and to carry on with my work.

My own process began on Feb. 2 with a procedure known as a “nipple delay,” which rules out disease in the breast ducts behind the nipple and draws extra blood flow to the area. This causes some pain and a lot of bruising, but it increases the chance of saving the nipple. CONTINUE READING (SHE OPENS UP ABOUT BRAD PITT) AFTER THE JUMP! More »

Brad Pitt named the face of Chanel No. 5!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are making tons of money as the faces of fashion and beauty campaigns. It was reported last year that Louis Vuitton paid Angelina Jolie millions to be the face of their “Core Values” campaign. Among other contracts, she is one busy woman! Now we learn that her fiance, Brad Pitt, is also getting into the beauty biz.

E! News reports that Brad has been named the face of Chanel No. 5, which is a woman’s perfume!

Yes, it’s a scent for a woman, but if ever there was a man pretty enough to render that particular point moot, it’s Brad Pitt.

Proving yet again that his musky appeal knows no bounds, E! News has exclusively learned that Angelina Jolie’s better half has signed on as the new face of Chanel’s signature No. 5 scent.

Reps for neither Pitt nor the perfume house have commented on the new partnership, but a source tells E! News that the actor will be shooting his firstperfume ad in London sometime this week (the superstar family has set up their most recent homestead in the UK).

And for his endorsement troubles, Pitt will be bringing home some serious bacon for the Jolie-Pitt clan, with his paycheck for the spot somewhere in the seven-figures. The Chanel No. 5 ad will be released overseas sometime later this year. Makes scents to us.

All I have to say is – let’s see the ads!

FIRST LOOK! Angelina Jolie’s Marie Claire January 2012 cover!!

Angelina Jolie graces yet another magazine cover, and this time it’s Marie Claire! The stunning beauty is busy promoting her new movie, “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”

Angelina looks beautiful in a blue sweater, staring into the camera with her trademark bee-stung lips and brandishing a gold statement ring.

In the interview, Angie comments on the different styles of her super cute twins, Knox and Vivienne:

Knox is very much a dude. Very physical, tough. He loves dinosaurs and swords. She [Vivienne] is so elegant and delicate. Vivi will pick flowers from the garden and put them in her hair. She likes to get her nails done and collects stuffed animals. It’s very funny for me to have to buy all things pink and watch princess movies!

Angelina Jolie’s 10 minute Louis Vuitton commercial released!

Angelina Jolie is the new face of Louis Vuitton. A couple months ago we saw her print ad, and here we have the “commercial” which is a whopping 10 minutes long.

In the video she talks about Cambodia, and elephants and land mines. And I’m really struggling to figure out what this has to do with Louis Vuitton. Maybe they just figured they wanted her to talk a lot – so they gave her a subject she’s passionate about? They are, after all, paying her $10 million for the campaign, they need to make it worth their while!

This video is quite strange…you’ve been warned.
