“I feel like to comment on somebody else’s decision and their motivation and to criticise it in any way feels really inappropriate for me. And I bite my tongue because Angelina is not a personal friend and I can’t speak about her experience, but doing something electively to avoid greats odds that you can have a fatal disease, not only is it brave, but I think it’s pretty intelligent.” Actress-turned-reality TV star Brooke Burke Charvet, who underwent treatment for thyroid cancer last year (12), reprimands breast cancer survivor Melissa Etheridge after she insisted Angelina Jolie’s decision to undergo a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing the disease was more “fearful” than “brave”.
