Jolie has more surgery ahead

London - Angelina Jolie hasn't completed her preventative cancer surgery.

The 'Unbroken' director underwent a preventative double mastectomy last March after finding out she was at high risk of getting breast cancer, and while she's “very happy” with her decision, her treatment isn't complete yet.

She told Entertainment Weekly magazine: “There's still another surgery to have, which I haven't yet. I'll get advice from all these wonderful people who I've been talking to, to get through that next stage.

“I'm very happy I made the decision. I was very fortunate to have great doctors and very, very fortunate to have a good recovery and a project like 'Unbroken' to have something to be really focused on, to be getting healthy or, and to be able to just get right back to work.”

The 38-year-old star - whose mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died of ovarian cancer - said the brave decision to announce her mastectomy in an article has helped her connect with many new people.

She added: “Wherever I go, usually I run into women and we talk about health issues, women's issues, breast cancer, ovarian cancer.

“I've talked to men about their daughters' and wives' health. It makes me feel closer to other people who deal with the same things and have either lost their parents or are considering surgeries or wondering about their children.” - Bang Showbiz
