Angelina Jolie recently revealed that she underwent a preventative double mastectomy to reduce her chances of getting breast cancer. The news shocked not only her fans, but Hollywood as well.
While on the red carpet for Niecy Nash’s, It’s Hard To Fight Naked, book signing party, HipHollywood caught up with some of Hollywood’s leading women to get their reaction on Angelina’s announcement. “Angelina Jolie is a phenomenal woman, and I think her family comes first, and any decision after that or any decision that she makes because that’s the first thing that she thinks about, she has my support” Brandy shared.
“You know that she probably made the best choice for herself as a woman, and what a hard choice it must have been … it’s a preventative measure but I think about that and think wow, she did what I try and ask every woman to do, put your own mask on first, save yourself, so that you’re able to save everybody else … she’s a beautiful warrior,” Sheryl Lee Ralph explained.
As for New Jack City’s Vanessa Williams, she admitted she would have taken another approach. “It’s shocking. Its a very allopathic kind of approach to healing and I’m more holistic and more homeopathy … I wish her the best,” Williams shared.
