Brad Pitt talks 'World War Z,' says Angelina Jolie is 'doing great'
Brad Pitt appeared on "Good Morning America" on Monday, June 17, and while the 49-year-old actor was there to talk about his upcoming zombie thriller "World War Z," the conversation turned toward his fiancee Angelina Jolie and her health.
In May, the 38-year-old actress revealed in a New York Times Op-Ed that she had undergone a double mastectomy as a preventative measure against breast cancer.
When asked by "Good Morning America" co-host George Stephanopoulos how Jolie was doing, Pitt replied, "Business as usual. She's doing great." Video of his interview can be seen below.
"When she wrote her piece we had already come out the other end and we're feeling very good about it," he added. "We're really surprised and moved how many other people were dealing with the same issue or wondering about the same issue."
Stephanopoulos asked Pitt, "You didn't expect it?"
"No," the actor said. "She just -- her idea was that someone could learn from her story and she would love to share that, but it's just been a beautiful thing to watch ... her focus now is that all people have access to the testing and know what they can do about it."
He later added, "I've been moved by it from every stage of this thing, especially now, and it seems to be a galvanizing moment for people dealing with this."
During the interview Pitt also revealed that his sons sort of sparked the idea for him to do "World War Z."
"My boys love these things, so they were the first impetus to start exploring," he said.
Pitt and Jolie have been seen together at several "World War Z" premieres across the globe in locations like Berlin and London. He told Stephanopoulos their next stop was Russia and they had four or five countries left before the family takes a break.
"World War Z" is based on the acclaimed novel "World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War." Pitt plays a retired United Nations employee who leaves behind his family to find a cure to stop the zombie pandemic.
