Salma Hayek Criticizes Angelina Jolie’s Double Mastectomy Choice – Ignorant or Arrogant?

Salma Hayek Puts Down Angelina Jolie’s Double Mastectomy Choice - Ignorant or Arrogant?

Salma Hayek has been busy promoting Grown Ups 2, and for some reason, she was asked about her thoughts on Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy.

Well, to be fair, the question was whether Salma would get rid of her, ahem, assets if she had to make the choice of getting a mastectomy. Salma’s reply was, “To save myself, of course! I don’t know if I would have done the same [as Jolie] so quickly, perhaps I would have had more faith, thought more positively that nothing was going to happen to me. But you know, I don’t know, it’s not fair to put yourself in that situation when you haven’t been in it. I respect her decision a lot, of course. Plus, she looks great.”

Well, at least she was diplomatic about her disagreement, which is more than we can say for most people who have spoken out about the issue. A lot of people have very differing [and strong] opinions on gene testing and getting a double mastectomy, and the issue’s already caused a lot of disagreements between the various factions. Of course, this has also managed to open up discussion about sensitive topics that were previously swept under the rug, and that’s always a good thing in my book.

What do you guys think about Salma’s comments? She didn’t bring it up herself, but she also didn’t shy away from expressing her views. And what she said certainly rings true for a lot of people – how do you make this kind of decision without being in that position? It’s hard to imagine yourself in that situation, and I don’t think anyone can really say one way or another without first-hand experience. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    Clearly Angie’s old implants had expired and she needed to replace them. With so many implants over the years, scar tissue was bound to have built up, so I’m speculating she had the scar tissue removed and new implants put in. In other words, not a double mastectomy but extensive implant replacement surgery. How could a double mastectomy pt. lift heavy weight? fly for hours in high compression aircraft? visit foreign villages where bacteria was likely that could cause severe and possible life threatening infection in the surgery site? No, it was a boob job.

    To me it’s so sad she did this :( i had a double mastectomy b/c i was in the 3th stage.And i had to wait for over a year to get my surgrey and went to a deep depression.B/c if you don’t have the money like her i had to wait!And it makes me mad and sad that she goes around so proud when she didn’t have to do it yet! I wouldn’t want my daughter to do it I would want her to keep getting check every year b/c she might not get it!I agree i think it was time for new boobs!!she just use this excuse for it!Angie is not a good model for this!!Sorry to say this but it’s true.Bet if she didn’t have this money she would wait.

    I think she had natural breasts, but after three babies, they probably needed some work. But don’t hate on her for that.


    Salma does not know WTF she is talking about… if you’ve got BRCA1 positive and you don’t get a mastectomy, you’ve got a 30% chance of dying within 3 years… she is a complete idiot to criticize Angelia …
