Angelina Jolie has done it again - something outlandishly bizarre and rather extreme. Five years after she had her breasts removed and three years after having her ovaries removed over cancer fears, the Maleficent Actress has had a colostomy

The former flame of Brad Pitt, in an interview with John Smith of Celeb Magazine, had this to say:

"Look, I know what you people are going to say. "Angelina is only trying to bring attention to herself. What the hell was she thinking?" But the fact of the matter is that I have a history of cancer in my family. In addition to which, apart from possessing the BRCA 1 gene which can leaves me with a 70% chance of getting breast cancer, for which I have already taken preventative measures to avoid, I also have the MSH2 gene which also leaves me with a 70% chance of getting colon cancer. That's why I had to do what I did. It was a precautionary measure."

She continued:

‘I didn't want to wait until something serious actually happened to me then to act. Sometimes you have to be proactive. Cancer is not something that one should play with."

Asked about how her children were affected by the news, Jolie replied:

"I haven't told them as yet but I will soon enough."

On how the procedure will affect her acting career, Jolie said:

"I'm not bothered one bit. Even if I don't get major roles in movies again, I can do other things like direct or do voice overs in animated films. Besides, my health is more important than my career."

Questioned further on how she'd be looked at by young girls who see her as a role model of sorts and who my think that she is disfiguring herself, Jolie responded:

"Of course not. I am not disfiguring myself at all. In fact, I think that young girls can see what I have done as a form of empowerment. It's about taking the right measures for the sake of your health regardless of how extreme it may seem. If young girls want to do what I have done I would feel so proud because I would have helped to make a positive difference in their lives."

Asked if she thought that she was somehow mocking people who have actually suffered with the disease, Jolie replied:

"When I played Marianne Pearl in A Mighty Heart some years ago, was I mocking her and what she went through? The thing about it is that you are not a celebrity John. You are just an ordinary person so you would never understand."
