Angelina Jolie put a whole bunch of her critics to rest this week when she wrote a personal essay for The New York Times, in which she revealed she had a preventative double mastectomy after doctors discovered a faulty gene in her body.

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.

How do you top that? Well, you don’t. But nine other celebrities did have some pretty interesting things this week, ranging from public apologies to one actor who finally admitted that, yeah, Your Highness really did suck.
