Brad Pitt on Melissa Etheridge’s Comments About Angelina's Double Mastectomy
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway caught up with Brad Pitt at the NYC premiere of “World War Z” and asked Pitt about comments singer Melissa Etheridge made on Angelina Jolie's double mastectomy.
The singer, who is a breast cancer survivor, spoke with the Washington Blade and said, “I have to say I feel a little differently. I have that gene mutation too and it’s not something I would believe in for myself. I wouldn’t call it the brave choice. I actually think it’s the most fearful choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer.”
Pitt, who had not heard the comments, responded, “Oh, I didn’t know, I haven’t seen her… Melissa is an old friend of mine, so I’ll have to give her a call.”
The actor added that Jolie is doing great. Watch more of the red carpet interview!
“World War Z” swarms into theaters Friday.
