Us Weekly, a medical journal sold in grocery stores, has published a photograph of Angelina Jolie post-mastectomy, calling attention to Jolie's "still ample cleavage":

Wearing a low-cut camisole and black pants, Jolie revealed her stunning post-mastectomy body and still-ample cleavage. She kept her eyes hidden behind a pair of sunglasses and beneath a wide-brimmed black hat, but her smile was unmistakable.

The story even provides a "zoom-in" feature enabling viewers to gawk at Jolie's chest and marvel at the results of her double mastectomy and reconstruction, which she announced in a New York Times Op-Ed in May.


Of the decision, which actor and partner Brad Pitt called "brave," Jolie wrote: "I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity."
