The outpouring of support keeps coming for Angelina Jolie following her revelation that she underwent a preventative double mastectomy. The latest words of approval comes from her future mother-in-law.
Jolie's brother, James Haven, also gave a statement to the magazine, saying, "My sister, like our mother, always put her children first."
Later, in a written statement to Piers Morgan, Jolie's father Jon Voight commented, "I fully understand Angie's decision. What a magnificent woman she is and so brave. I also feel she will be an inspiration to all women who may be vulnerable to a similar situation."
The 37-year-old Oscar winner made the announcement in an op-ed piece for The New York Times. In the article, Jolie explained that she carries a gene that gives an estimated 87 percent chance of getting breast cancer.
"Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could," Jolie wrote. "I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy."
Later, Pitt released a statement, saying, "Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie's choice, as well as many others like her, absolutely heroic. I thank our medical team for their care and focus."
