Could this woman be any more perfect? Seriously, she’s gone from borderline gothic sexpot to Mother Teresa in the course of a decade and, in all honesty, she has earned the respect of millions. Forget the tabloid fodder that her relationship with Brad Pitt was turned into (at least in the beginning), this woman is a dedicated mother and civil servant, ambassador and talented beauty who has captured the eyes and hearts of the entire world. Now, Angelina has come out with something very private and inspiring. You can read her whole write up here. By coming forward about her decision to have a double mastectomy, Jolie has shed light on a subject that many women are afraid to discuss and has hopefully made the subject more accessible, less taboo and ultimately more preventable. Sure, she is only one woman, but it takes one person to make a big difference.
