BREAKING: Angelina Jolie reveals she had a double mastectomy.

Angelina Jolie has revealed she had a double masctectomy in a piece titled, My Medical Choice written exclusively for the New York Times.

The 37-year-old wrote that she has a “faulty” gene, BRCA1, which increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer which is the reason why opted for a preventative mastectomy and finished the three months of medical procedures on April 27.

“Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy.

I started with the breasts, as my risk of breast cancer is higher than my risk of ovarian cancer, and the surgery is more complex,” Jolie wrote.

7. Must-listen: drunk BBC radio presenter’s final shift.


BBC Radio Stoke’s Paula White had a few too many before presenting her final radio show, she lasted 40 minutes before she was taken off air.

Slurring her words and generally sounding incoherent, she told listeners, “It’s a P.A.R.T.Y. because I said sooo.”

“Some people will say, ‘Oh, thank goodness she’s gone.’”

“Other people will go, ‘How will I get the dog to sleep?’ because I know that people actually play this show out for their dogs. How lovely.”

“I’ve had a couple of drinks, I’m not drunk. I’m sad…”

Another radio presenter eventually took over saying, “Unfortunately Paula’s not feeling quite well with it being her last show and she’s gone home.”
