Brad Pitt has spoken about Angelina Jolie’s decision to have a double mastectomy, calling it a ‘heroic’ choice.
The 49-year-old World War Z actor added that it’s a ‘happy day’ for the couple and their six children:
”Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie’s choice, as well as so many others like her, absolutely heroic,” he told The London Evening Standard. “I thank our medical team for their care and focus. All I want for is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children. This is a happy day for our family.”
What’s interesting though is the timing of the NY Times article’s publication – Us Weekly, In Touch, Life & Style and Star all go to print early on Tuesday morning (the final copy is usually approved at around 3-4am NYC time for their issues to hit newsstands in New York on Wednesday and the rest of the country Friday).
So they won’t be able to cover Angelina’s mastectomy in their print editions until next week which’ll stretch coverage out to two weeks – a lot for one story.
But People magazine’s print deadline is Tuesday lunchtime, meaning they should have had time this morning to change up their cover for tomorrow, guaranteeing them a huge boost in sales.
I wonder if they (Brad and Angelina) negotiated an extra amount for the American rights on the wedding photos then in return for this favour if that’s the case?
Because the nuptials are definitely happening at Chateau Miraval this summer - I guarantee you – and they’ll be determined to make as much money as they can out of it.
For charity, of course.
With one carefully-written op-ed, the world’s interest in Brangelina getting a happy ever after has gone from a shrug to millions of people across the globe being positively excited about it.
Apart from (presumably) one person, that is.
I really, really hope that Jennifer Aniston’s wedding to Justin Theroux isn’t happening this weekend.
