Angelina Jolie recently revealed that she underwent a preventative double mastectomy to reduce her chances of getting breast cancer. The news shocked not only her fans, but Hollywood as well.

While on the red carpet for Niecy Nash’s, It’s Hard To Fight Naked, book signing party, HipHollywood caught up with some of Hollywood’s leading women to get their reaction on Angelina’s announcement. “Angelina Jolie is a phenomenal woman, and I think her family comes first, and any decision after that or any decision that she makes because that’s the first thing that she thinks about, she has my support” Brandy shared.

“You know that she probably made the best choice for herself as a woman, and what a hard choice it must have been … it’s a preventative measure but I think about that and think wow, she did what I try and ask every woman to do, put your own mask on first, save yourself, so that you’re able to save everybody else … she’s a beautiful warrior,” Sheryl Lee Ralph explained.

As for New Jack City’s Vanessa Williams, she admitted she would have taken another approach. “It’s shocking. Its a very allopathic kind of approach to healing and I’m more holistic and more homeopathy … I wish her the best,” Williams shared.

    Some encouraging remarks except for the very stupid, Vanessa Williams who used the universal moron term holistic when discussing medicine. And genuinely advocated that fake treatment, homeopathy for cancer. Such dangerous advice not only makes her an idiot, it makes her a potentially dangerous idiot.

    That had to be a hard decision to make.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

on

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
