Angelina's Mom Dies

In December, Angelina Jolie told Larry King that her mother was winning her long battle against ovarian cancer, saying "She's doing good" and "She's very strong and her spirit remains unbroken."

Sadly, 56-year-old Marcheline Bertrand lost her battle over the weekend. When she passed away at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, she was surrounded by her kids, Angelina and James Haven, as well as Angie's BF, Brad Pitt.

Marcheline trained to be an actress under the famous acting coach Lee Strasberg, but put her career on hold to start a family with Jon Voight. The couple split shortly after having their two children and Marcheline raised them on her own. She had been battling cancer for over seven years.

So sad.
