Angelina was found to have the defective BRCA1 gene which greatly increases the risk of developing cancer, and announced she had undergone the preventative surgery in a piece published in the New York Times.
"My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer," she wrote.

She is reportedly planning further surgery to remove her ovaries, as the faulty gene means she has a 50% chance of developing ovarian cancer, which killed her mother back in 2007.
