Angelina Jolie may not marry Brad Pitt; ready for hysterectomy

The actress underwent a double mastectomy last year

Angelina Jolie is in no rush to get married.

The 38-year-old actress, who got engaged to Brad Pitt in April 2012, admits they still don't have any concrete plans to tie the knot despite previously claiming they were under pressure to wed from their six children, Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

The 'Maleficent' star told 'Good Morning America' today (21.05.14): "We don't have a date, and we're not hiding anything, but we really don't know. We talk to the kids about it once in a while -- and one of them suggested paintball. And we thought, 'Well, different.'"

The Oscar-winning actress also hinted that she and Brad might never actually marry, even though they are madly in love.

She said: "You know, I think the important thing is that whatever we do it's that the kids do have a great time, and we all -- you know, take seriously the love, and the connection between all of us. But also just get silly and do something memorable."

Angelina was previously married to British actor Jonny Lee Miller for three years until 1999 and Billy Bob Thornton for three years until 2003.

Shortly before he proposed, Brad, who was previously married to Jennifer Aniston, admitted he was eager to make Angelina his wife.

Asked if they would marry, he said: "We'd actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to do it till everyone can. But I don't think we'll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment."

Jolie is "getting ready" to undergo a hysterectomy

Angelina Jolie is "getting ready" to undergo a hysterectomy.

The 38-year-old actress - whose mother Marcheline Bertrand died of breast and ovarian cancer in 2007 - underwent a double mastectomy last year after discovering she carried the BRCA1 gene, giving her a high chance of contracting both the types of cancer which her mother suffered from, and is now preparing to have another operation.

She said: "My mother had breast and ovarian cancer so I have that lingering... I'm getting ready for that one [a hysterectomy] at some point."

Angelina - who raises children Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with fiancé Brad Pitt - is proud her decision to reveal she had had the double mastectomy has made more women come forward and get tested for cancer genes, and he enjoys hearing other people's stories.

She told Stylist magazine: "I've gotten so many beautiful letters from women who've gone in for the test.

"The most moving are the women who have found out they got checked just in time. But they are home now with their kids and they're fine.

"I feel so happy to be a part of that.

"At least there are things we can do to try and prevent eventually getting cancer. And anything we can do to prevent it, we have to."
