I am right with you there, especially in the case of angelina jolie.
Her life has been mythic so far has it not?
From what I've gleaned over the tabloids over the years, troubled childhood, drugs at a young age, bisexual when it was not hip to be so, married some old dude and hung a vial of his blood about her neck, then got humanitarian and adopted kids from all around the globe, stole an extremely famous sex symbol movie star from another extremely famous sex symbol movie star and then proceeded to have three presumedly superior-gene-pool children with him, all the while getting mystical mythical tattoos marking the importance of each adoption/bloodletting/tattoo. Can u get a tattoo to mark the importance of the last tattoo that you got?? I dunno but I digress,
with angelina jolie's "mythic" life the lopping off of her super-sexy breasts is just another chapter. Boob job? Dunno about that. She's on her way to super-duper legendary cronehood IMO(which, means nothing, btw). :)
The fact(IMM) *in my mind* is that with each "celebrity" that comes out and says, "Got this done, my doc recommended it, it's gonna save my life" , it makes it all the more acceptable for the rest of us proles.
