Salma Hayek Would Get a Double Mastectomy

If faced with cancer, Salma Hayek says she would do the same as Angelina Jolie did. In a recent interview with Univision’s El Gordo y la Flaca, the Grown Ups 2 star said she would also opt for a double mastectomy.

Earlier this year, Jolie caused what felt like a worldwide frenzy after revealing that she underwent a preventive double mastectomy in an opinion piece in The New York Times, titled “My Medical Choice.” Doctors told Jolie that she “had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer” due to a mutated BRCA1 gene. 

After Jolie revealed that part of her life, many people commented on the life-altering decision Jolie made for herself, including actress Zoë Saldaña and Colombian superstar Shakira (and our own Latina.com readers).
