(Newser) – How did Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie manage to keep her double mastectomy a secret for so long? By making early morning doctor's appointments and not driving their actual cars to any of them, according to People. So what type of cars did they use? The New York Daily News calls them "untraceable cars," while Radar goes with the more conventional "rental cars."

"Brad did everything he could to keep things secret and protect Angie," says a family insider. "They really wanted Angie to be able to recover and rest before they shared the story." PopSugar notes that Pitt even did an interview with Esquire during this time period and didn't reveal anything, though he did call Jolie "the best person" and revealed that he has "very few friends" outside of his family. (Angie has expressed a similar sentiment before.)

You do realize that drinking and smoking and whatever crazy things they did has nothing to do with why she had to get a double mastectomy, right? It's genetic. Her mother and grandmother died of breast cancer, and she had to go through this to prevent herself from the same fate as them.

I wish it were still a secret Evann. It's her private business in my books and besides I have no need to know.
