Angelina Jolie made her first public appearance Sunday since announcing she had undergone a double mastectomy in an op-ed she wrote for The New York Times. Jolie appeared with Brad Pitt at the premiere of “World War Z” in London. Jolie, whose mother and aunt have died of breast cancer, wrote in her op-ed that she had her breasts removed after discovering she had a high risk of having breast and ovarian cancer. Jolie told reporters she was feeling great and she was “very happy to see the discussion of women’s health expanded” since her announcement.
