Los Angeles: Hollywood star Brad Pitt feels his partner Angelina Jolie is an "incredibly strong" women for undergoing double mastectomy.

The 49-year-old is least surprised that Jolie took the decision to go public about her surgery, reported E! Online.

"That`s who I fell in love with from the very beginning. The person that you see now is the person that I`ve always known and she`s heroic and incredibly strong and will attack any problem head-on and make it work," Pitt said.

Jolie made her first public appearance after the operation at the premiere of Pitt`s film `World War Z`.

Last month, Jolie had both of her breasts surgically removed to reduce her chance of contracting breast cancer.
