NEW YORK (AP) — Brad Pitt says it was important for his partner, Angelina Jolie, to share her story about having her breasts removed to avoid cancer “and that others would understand it doesn’t have to be a scary thing.”

In an interview published Wednesday in USA Today, the actor said: “In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and makes us stronger.”

Pitt called the experience “an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months.”

He added: “It’s such a wonderful relief to come through this and not have a specter hanging over our heads. To know that that’s not going to be something that’s going to affect us. My proudest thing is our family. This isn’t going to get that.”
