Angie's back – and she looks better than ever.
Angelina Jolie, 38, has been laying relatively low since revealing in May that she underwent an elective double mastectomy three months earlier, but on Monday she emerged looking slim, strong and confident as she scouted locations for her next film project in Oahu, Hawaii.
Wearing her signature black – in this case, a Saint Laurent black tank top, pants and sun hat – Jolie looked all business while preparing to direct her second film, Unbroken, on the island.

With Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as his parents, it's no surprise Maddox Jolie-Pitt has caught the acting bug.
On Monday, Pitt and the 11-year-old celebrated the U.S. premiere of World War Z – Maddox makes a cameo in his dad's film as a zombie.
After Pitt walked the red carpet, the pair attended the Samsung Galaxy-sponsored after-party at Catch restaurant, a Meatpacking district hotspot.

Angelina Jolie may not have been at Brad Pitt's side at the New York premiere of his World War Z Monday night – like she was at the London opening – but she wasn't far from his mind.
"She's getting ready for World Refugee Day" this Thursday, Pitt told reporters on the red carpet, while Jolie was in Los Angeles.
Asked to describe his feelings about Jolie after she publicly announced her decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy, Pitt replied: "She has always been the brave, bold individual that I fell for – and sexy as ever."

Breast cancer survivor Melissa Etheridge says she doesn't agree with Angelina Jolie's recent decision to undergo a preventive double mastectomy after discovering she had the BRCA gene mutation that often leads to the disease.
In a new interview with Washington, D.C.-based LGBT newspaper the Washington Blade, the rocker reveals that she, too, has the same gene mutation, but calls Jolie's decision "not something I could believe in for myself."
"I wouldn’t call it the brave choice," Etheridge, 52, says. "I actually think it's the most fearful choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer. My belief is that cancer comes from inside you and so much of it has to do with the environment of your body. It's the stress that will turn that gene on or not."

Having memorably played a tough but warm-hearted Harvard Law professor in Legally Blonde and sassy mom Evelyn Harper on Two and a Half Men, veteran actress Holland Taylor is now up for a Tony Award for Broadway's Ann, her one-woman show in which she plays the late, feisty Texas Gov. Ann Richards.
Doubly remarkable is not only that Taylor stars in the show, but she wrote it herself. (The Tonys air live on CBS Sunday at 8 p.m.)
And while the Emmy winner has enjoyed career success, life has not been entirely glamorous for the 70-year-old, who opens up about her own personal challenges – including a long struggle with depression – in this weekend's Parade.

When Angelina Jolie went through her recent double mastectomy, she and Brad Pitt didn't keep it from their six children.
"We have a policy in our family, no secrets," Pitt, 49, told Extra at an after-party for World War Z. "I mean, there's an age of understanding, so you've got to present it in a way that is age appropriate, but we know our children very well."
The film's London premiere Sunday marked Jolie's first public appearance since revealing she had had surgery.
