In a New York Times Opinion piece released today, superstar philantropist, actress and Rosebud Magazine cover star Angelina Jolie revealed that she has undergone a double mastectomy.

Baffling the media with her clandestine surgery, Jolie wrote in detail, describing the three-month-long series of operations, which were completed April 27, with the hope that other women with a genetic pre-disposition to breast cancer would seek medical advice.

Jolie made the decision to have her breasts removed after discovering an 80% risk of developing breast cancer due to an inherited gene mutation, BRCA1. Jolie's mother, Marcheline Bertrand, passed away from the disease in 2007.

While Jolie described the decision as "not easy", she cited husband Brad Pitt as "very important" source of support throughout the surgeries noting that the ordeal has brought her and her family closer together.
