Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt opened up about her cancer scare during a rare interview with the couple on the Today Show Monday morning.
Two years after undergoing a double mastectomy, Jolie revealed that she had a cancer scare in March and underwent surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes.
“Every woman is different when they go through menopause, and…I didn’t know emotionally how I would feel,” Jolie told Tom Brokaw.
“I knew the breast would be a bigger surgery and physically changing. The ovaries is more, your hormones changing and your emotions changing, but it’s different. You feel different.” (RELATED: Angelina Jolie Has Cancer Scare, Undergoes Surgery)
“I knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn’t something where I was gonna feel less of a woman because my husband wasn’t gonna let that happen,” Jolie added.
Pitt said his wife was very “mature” throughout the ordeal, and that there was “no vanity” to her approach.
“I was out in France, and Angie called me and I got straight on a plane to return,” Pitt said.
“Seeing my wife have to be her strongest and knowing that it’s the scariest news is terribly moving. And not being there is a horrible feeling.” (PHOTOS: This Hot Woman Who Looks Exactly Like Angelina Jolie Has Everyone Scrambling)
