Angelina Jolie is in mourning after her mother MARCHELINE BERTRAND lost her battle with cancer on Saturday (27JAN07). The former actress died on Saturday afternoon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. In a statement released by Jolie yesterday (28JAN07), the Tomb Raider star revealed she, her partner Brad Pitt and brother JAMES HAVEN were at the hospital when Bertrand, 55, passed away. Bertrand, who was partly of native American descent, appeared in movies like LOOKIN' TO GET OUT and THE MAN WHO LOVED WOMEN, but gave up her acting career to raise her kids as a single mum, after divorcing their father, actor Jon Voight, in 1978. She always stayed on the fringes of Hollywood and produced star-studded documentary TRUDELL in 2005. Jolie confirmed her mother was battling ovarian cancer last month (DEC07), but confessed she expected her to win her fight with the disease. In a TV interview with CNN talk show host Larry King, the actress revealed her mother was "doing good", adding, "She has fought for six years and she's a remarkable woman, she's very, very strong and her spirit remains unbroken."

it's very sad! i was very close to my mom when she passed away with cancer in the summer of 2005. it took me awhile to accept her death. she's always in my heart even if i have moved on. my heart goes out to angie and james. they are going to need a lot of emotional support! i am glad brad is with angie to give her that support. brad's parents will need to give that support too if they are truly christians, after all, she is the mother of their grand children. i hope that this experience will only make angie and brad's relationship stronger and not let this tragedy worsen what they have. brad needs to be strong and be that man in the family for angie and kids! angie, with the death experience of mom, i understand what you are going through, but hang in there!!!!!!!
