March 2015: Jolie Had Her Ovaries Removed
Jolie Pitt revealed in a New York Times op-ed that she preemptively had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed after learning the risks she ran of getting ovarian cancer. "I called my husband in France, who was on a plane within hours," she wrote. "The beautiful thing about such moments in life is that there is so much clarity. You know what you live for and what matters. It is polarizing, and it is peaceful."
