Actress Angelina Jolie has said that she plans to have additional cancer-preventing surgery less than a year after the actress underwent a preventative double mastectomy.
“There’s still another surgery to have, which I haven’t yet,” Jolie told Entertainment Weekly. “I’ll, you know, I’ll get advice from all these wonderful people who I’ve been talking to, to get through that next stage.”
Jolie underwent her double mastectomy in May 2013 after learning that she was at a heightened genetic risk for breast cancer. Jolie’s mother died of breast cancer aged 56, and upon learning Jolie was a carrier of the “faulty” BRCA1 gene, she opted for the procedure. The actress detailed her experience in a New York Times op-ed titled “My Medical Choice,” in which she wrote that her doctors put her chance of developing breast cancer at 87%, and ovarian cancer at 50%.
“Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could,” Jolie wrote in the Times. “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.”
Ovary removal is common among women with Jolie’s particular heightened genetic cancer risk. The actress has not confirmed what her upcoming surgical procedure will involve.
Jolie, 38, is engaged to actor Brad Pitt. The pair have six children – three adopted and three biological.

Whenever a famous actor appears opposite one of their own children in a movie, it’s usually because the child is being groomed to carry on the family legacy.
But as Angelina Jolie reveals in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, her daughter Vivienne was not cast in Maleficent in order to jump start her acting career at a ridiculously early stage. Rather, Vivienne was the only 3-year-old in the world who was’t terrified of Jolie in her creepy villainess costume and make-up.
“We think it’s fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That’s not our goal for Brad and I at all,” Jolie says. “But the other 3- and 4-year-old [performers] wouldn’t come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv.”
According to Jolie, the costume was so terrifying that even Pax, who is five years older than Vivienne, freaked out when he first saw it.
“When Pax saw me for the first time, he ran away and got upset—and I thought he was kidding, so I was pretending to chase him until I actually found him crying,” Jolie says. “I had to take off pieces [of the makeup] in front of him to show him it was all fake and not freak out so much.”
Later in the interview, Jolie describes the outpouring of goodwill that she received after she penned an op-ed in the New York Times describing her double mastectomy.
“I feel very, very close—much closer—to other women, and women who are going through the same thing,” she says. “Wherever I go, usually I run into women and we talk about health issues, women’s issues, breast cancer, ovarian cancer. 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. … The reason that I wrote it was to try to communicate and help and connect with other women and other families going through the same thing. And…I was very, very moved by all the support and kindness from so many people.”
Although the decision to undergo the operation wasn’t easy, Jolie says that she’s glad she made it, and that she’s glad she had a project like Unbroken (which hits theatres Dec 25) to focus on to help her through her recovery.
“I’m great! I’m very happy I made the decision. I was very fortunate to have great doctors and very, very fortunate to have a good recovery and have a project like Unbroken [the World War II survival story she is directing] to have something to be really focused on, to be getting healthy for, and to be able to just get right back to work.”

Chef Jolie! Angelina Jolie learned how to cook from her personal chef while in Australia directing Unbroken, a source tells Us Weekly in the Mar. 10 issue.
The gorgeous movie star mom, 38, recently overcame her kitchen-phobia, after learning a few healthy tips and culinary tricks from the pro, the insider tells Us. This will be a big lifestyle swap for the children, who are the “worst eaters,” according to the source. And feeding six kids with different food preferences is no simple task: The Jolie-Pitt kids “want to eat different things at different times,” the source adds.
Jolie, who once famously admitted that son Pax, 10, was a better cook than her, decided it was time to take control. The source tells Us that the mom is “very proud” of her new skill. (Back in 2011, Jolie boasted that she and fiance Brad Pitt cooked their own Thanksgiving turkey. “We were very successful and very proud of ourselves,” she joked to Anderson Cooper in an interview.)
Learning how to cook, however, was not the toughest task tacked by the star.
Jolie confessed Tuesday, Feb. 25 that it was a challenge getting producers to sign on for her upcoming movie Unbroken, which tells the true story of World War II hero and Olympic runner Louis Zamperini. “This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” she told Tom Brokaw on Tuesday’s Today show episode. “I pitched my butt off.”
Jolie, who up until early February had been filming Unbroken since late 2013, was joined by her six kids on the Gold Coast.
Pitt, 50, who was busy filming upcoming movie Fury in London, oftentimes flew over to spend time with his beautiful brood. But after months apart, the family has reunited in full and returned back to the West Coast ahead of the Oscars.
“Since Sydney, everyone is in sync,” another insider told Us of the Jolie-Pitts.
