Read the latest article from ExploreTalent.com, called "Angelina Jolie Opens Up About Her Own Mom." Here are clips from the article:
Angelina Jolie opened up about her own mom, Marcheline Betrand, in a New York Times Op-Ed piece, "My Medical Choice," in which the 37-year-old revealed that after finding out she carried the BRCA1 breast cancer gene, she had a preventative double mastectomy. The mother of six with fiance, Brad Pitt, wrote that she lost her mother in 2007 to ovarian cancer; she was just 56-years old.
Betrand, who passed away in 2007, "held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms. But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was," Jolie wrote.
"We often speak of 'Mommy's mommy,' and I find myself trying to explain the illness that took her away from us," Jolie continued. She then discussed her decision to undergo a double mastectomy to prevent herself from getting the horrible disease.
