As a preventive major, Jolie went through a preventive double mastectomy after the knowledge that she might have inherited her mother's disease. She opened up about the procedure in a candid op-ed published in the New York Times in 2013.
As a supportive friend, Jolie introduced the film at the premiere held in the Museum of Modern Art. She referred to Nourry’s decision to document her journey as an act of generosity.
The actress said,
“I’m honored to be here to support my dear friend, Prune Nourry, and to introduce a unique, brave and mesmerizing film. A tribute to the spirit of a woman, and a journey into the mind and soul of a true artist.”
“I think in the process, she helps all of us to feel a little more brave, more connected to our bodies and to each other, more willing to accept our own scars, and better able to understand that these things too are part of life, and part of what it is to be a woman. Cancer is a word that still strikes fear in us,"
“But fear often comes from not knowing what our choices and options are. Even if it can’t always be conquered, fear can be met head-on with the support of others.”
She shares her six children with ex Brad Pitt, including 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The former couple went through a heated custody battle post-divorce.
Although the Salt actress filed for divorce back in September 2016 they only reached a truce in December 2018. However, the details of their understanding have not paved its way to the public as they hired a private Judge for the case. In addition, they also maintained that they didn't reveal the details with the children's well-being in mind.
