Bet you didn’t see that headline coming, right? So it turns out Angelina Jolie — who has never shied away from talking about anything, even a double mastectomy — has found a new facet of womanhood to promote and take the stigma away from, and it’s the change. “I actually love being in menopause,” the 40-year-old actress and director tells the Telegraph.
And if you think 40 is a bit young, she explains that her surgeries to prevent ovarian and breast cancer caused physical changes that triggered it early. “I haven’t had a terrible reaction to it, so I’m very fortunate. I feel older and I feel settled being older. I feel happy that I’ve grown up. I don’t want to be young again.” We get it, Angie. There isn’t anything out there you can’t be cool with.
