Brad Pitt: It’s ‘Business As Usual’ For Angelina Jolie, As ‘She’s Doing Great’

It’s been “business as usual” for Angelina Jolie, who’s been “doing great” since speaking about her double mastectomy publicly, her partner Brad Pitt told George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America Monday.

As we previously reported, Jolie last month revealed she’d undergone a double mastectomy earlier this year, after learning she carried a gene that left her with an extremely high chance of breast cancer.

Pitt, 49, said the Tomb Raider beauty, 38, has received many well wishes and kind thoughts since her brave admission in via a New York Times piece.

“When she wrote her piece, we had already come out the other end and we’re feeling really good about it,” Pitt said. “We’re really surprised and moved by how many people are dealing with the same issue, or wondering about the same issue.”

Pitt said Jolie’s “idea was that if someone could learn from her story, then she would love to share that … but it’s just been a beautiful thing to watch and her focus now is that all people have access to the testing and know what they can do about it.
