(CBS News) Angelina Jolie isn't the only "A-list" star who has decided on double mastectomy surgery in an effort to avoid cancer. Sharon Osbourne, one of the women at the table of CBS' "The Talk," underwent the 13-hour surgery in 2012. She said on "CBS This Morning" that it wasn't a difficult decision for her to make once she learned she carried the gene that can indicate a predisposition to breast cancer.

Appearing on "CBS This Morning" Wednesday, Osbourne said, "I didn't want to take the pressure of every time I would feel a pain or anything, I would be 'this is it, this is it!' And when you have the gene, you have to have mammograms more, so it's like, 'No, I can't take it'."

Of her breasts today, Osbourne said, "Mine are fabulous! Mine aren't even teenagers yet!"

She acknowledged that age can be a factor in making the decision. "It does (matter), Osbourne said. "At my age when I had it done, it's like, 'Really? Just do it. Come on, just get it over and done with.' But with somebody like Angelina who is -- I mean, she is just a vision. She is magnificent. She's a magnificent woman. And I'm sure that, you know, she went through so much to make that decision. But the right decision."
