Both unbroken: The emotional moment Angelina Jolie embraced breast cancer survivor who also had to have a double mastectomy

A brave Australian woman who underwent a double mastectomy like Angelina Jolie was lucky enough to meet the Hollywood director at the world premiere of her film, Unbroken.
Sydney's Krystal Barter is BCRA1 positive, which means she is has a high risk of developing breast cancer, and had the preventative procedure to reduce the chances of getting the disease.
The 30-year-old was one of just people who were personally greeted by the star and her actor husband, Brad Pitt, on Monday night.

'It was incredibly overwhelming. Angelina was absolutely humble and beautiful,' Ms Barter told Daily Mail Australia.
She was one of six inspirational Australians Jolie wanted to meet at the premiere of her film.
'She chose inspirational Aussies to walk the red carpet with her (including burns survivor Turia Pitt). We’re incredibly honoured and she gave us the spotlight for a night to showcase what we stand for – it’s a testament to the type of person she was,' Ms Barter said. 
'Angelina is not only someone that a lot of people look up to, but she's someone who has been through so much personally. 
'She spent quite a lot of time with all of us before the premiere... it is a moment I will always cherish and remember.'

On Monday night, Jolie also met inspirational Australian Turia Pitt, who survived burns to 64 per cent of her body after being caught in a bushfire in 2011, and since recovering from the ordeal has gone on to be a motivational speaker and author.
Turia, 24, shared the incredible moment she and her boyfriend Michael Hoskin came face-to-face with Angelina and husband Brad Pitt on the red carpet with her Instagram followers.
'What a privilege to meet this extraordinary couple,' she said of the encounter.


Angelina Jolie says POW film helped with motherhood

SYDNEY Mon Nov 17, 2014 4:49am EST

(Reuters) - "Unbroken", a film Angelina Jolie directed about the plight of an American Olympian turned World War II prisoner, helped her tackle motherhood, the Oscar-winning actress said on Monday.
Hundreds of fans crowded outside a Sydney theater to welcome Jolie to Australia for the world premiere of her second directing effort.
Based on a best-selling book by Laura Hillenbrand, the film tells how Louis Zamperini, an Olympic sprinter, spent 47 days on a life raft after his plane crashed into the Pacific, and was then held for two years by the Japanese.
"I think as a human being, as a mother, as someone who works internationally, I needed desperately to know a man like Louis Zamperini in my life, to know that there is hope," Jolie said.
Jolie was able to show Zamperini an early cut of the film, shot in Australia, before his death in July, aged 97.
"The strength of a strong heart and an indomitable will is valuable and it's worth something," she added.
"We have to remember that and hold onto that because that's what will pull us through and it's what has always pulled people through dark times."
Jolie was joined on the red carpet by her husband, the actor Brad Pitt, and Jack O’Connell, who plays Zamperini.
The mother of six told Vanity Fair magazine this month she was open to pursuing a life in politics, or public service.
Jolie's first film as a director, "In the Land of Blood and Honey", was set during the Bosnian war and released in 2011.
