The world is talking today about Angelina Jolie's decision to have a double mastectomy.

Jolie made the announcement in an op-ed piece she wrote for today's New York Times called "My Medical Choice." She revealed that she has completed three months of surgical procedures to remove both breasts this year.

Why did she do it? A test indicated she carried a gene that would cause her to have a high risk of developing breast cancer. Her mother died from cancer in 2007.

Take a look at how Hollywood stars, some of them breast cancer survivors, are responding on Twitter to Jolie's decision:
