(b. 1975)
Actress, humanitarian, and all-around beautiful person Angelina Jolie is a previvor. She has not had cancer but, after learning she carried a BRCA1 mutation, she decided to take her destiny into her own hands. She had a double mastectomy—a bold choice given her life in the public eye, but one that ensures she will never develop breast cancer. Like Applegate, she used her fame as an advantage, writing two op-eds in the New York Times that brilliantly communicated how knowledge of your genetic inheritance leads to superpowers. Or for her, more superpowers.
