Angelina Jolie joined her fiancé Brad Pitt in London today at the premiere of his new film World War Z. It was the 37-year-old’s first public appearance since she revealed that she recently underwent a double mastectomy.
Wearing a custom Saint Laurent black gown, the mom of six smiled as she waved to the crowd and told fans that she was “feeling great.”
Angelina decided to undergo a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction after learning that she carried the BRCA1 gene, which gave her an 87 percent chance of contracting breast cancer. She wrote about her decision to have the preventative surgery in an article for the New York Times and said toady that she was “proud” of the response to her decision to go public. “If it did some good then I’m pleased,” she told a reporter.
