On Monday, Nov. 2, the Today show will feature a Brangelina interview like no other. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie opened up about their lives to NBC News Special Correspondent Tom Brokaw in an interview that will air on Monday. It's rare for these two to sit down together and give a joint interview, so if you're a fan of the couple, then you won't want to miss it. Their conversation with Brokaw will include talk about their marriage, family, and their new film By the Sea. Moreover, they will discuss Jolie's medical procedures and how Pitt dealt with the emotional time. For now, some preview quotes from the interview have been released that tell viewers what to expect.
Viewers will see Pitt open up about Jolie's decision to get a double mastectomy in 2013 to prevent cancer and her preventative surgeries to remove her fallopian tubes and ovaries in 2015. So, how did Pitt see his role in all of this? As he told Brokaw,
Support. Whatever's got to be done to keep the family together, and keep the family together as long as possible is gonna be done. This was her charge, no question. It's a scary decision. There's many things that can go wrong and go many different directions.
Jolie wasn't surprised by her husband's support and is grateful he was there through the difficult moments. "I knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn't something where I was gonna feel less of a woman, because my husband wasn't gonna let that happen," she revealed to Brokaw.
As for her double mastectomy, Brokaw inquired about her thoughts on people's reactions to her decision to prevent breast and ovarian cancer, the latter being something that both her mother and grandmother died from at a young age. "You never know what a reaction is — you have to just make the choices you make in life," she answered. "I made the choices I made because I believed they were right for me."
More will be revealed when the interview airs Nov. 2, but there's no doubt that just these few excerpts prove Jolie and Pitt's marriage is filled with deep strength and love.
