Photo: Angelina Jolie Covers Time Magazine After Double Mastectomy Announcement

TIME is summing up Angelina Jolie’s big week with three words on the cover of its latest issue: “The Angelina Effect.”
The powerful cover image was revealed on Wednesday, one day after the Oscar winning actress revealed that she had a preventative double mastectomy earlier this year. 
The magazine’s cover story focuses on how far the star’s influence has gone in past cases: her adoption of a baby (her daughter Zahara) in Ethiopia and her name choices for daughter Vivienne and son Maddox. Now, with Jolie's actions, doctors are expecting a "stampede of women" who will request to be tested for the breast cancer-related BRCA1 gene.
