From the birth of North West to the end of Robsten, Hollywood kept the world buzzing this year. So before we say hello to 2014, take a look back at the biggest celeb stories of 2013.Angie's Shocking SurgeryAngelina Jolie went under the knife this year: She had a preventive double mastectomy to lower her chance of developing cancer. The actress, whose mother died of ovarian cancer in 2007, has a mutated BRCA1 gene that's known to raise a woman's risk of breast and ovarian cancers. She broke the news to the world in a New York Times op-ed on May 14, less than a month after her final surgery. "I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy," she wrote. "But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don't need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer."
