Support is pouring in for Angelina Jolie, who revealed Tuesday in a New York Times piece that she recently underwent a preventative double mastectomy.

In the op-ed, the 37-year-old actress opens up about having both breasts surgically removed after finding out she had an 87 percent chance of developing breast cancer.

Jolie isn't the first celebrity to have the surgery. Christina Applegate, Sharon Osbourne, Wanda Sykes and Giuliana Rancic have all undergone double mastectomies in the past.

Rancic, along with Sheryl Crow, who both battled breast cancer, are among the stars speaking out. Check out their words of support below:
