Hollywood star Brad Pitt’s mother Jane was influential in Angelina Jolie’s decision to take the test that led to her preventative double mastectomy. Jane asked the 37-year-old to take the test, which led to her finding out she carried the BRCA1 cancer gene, that gave her high chances of developing breast and ovarian cancers.

“Basically, Brad’s mom helped save Angie’s life. When Angie told Jane that she was considering having genetic testing, Jane said to do whatever she thought was best for the children’s sake,” a source said.
