“Up All Night” beauty and breast cancer survivor CHRISTINA APPLEGATE opens up about her ordeal.  

In a candid sit-down, Christina  revealed her emotional duress after enduring a double mastectomy for breast cancer in 2008.

“I miss my exquisite breasts sometimes,” Applegate told More magazine, referencing a line from the 2004 comedy “Anchorman.”

Christina said she suffered “total emotional collapse” when first being diagnosed with the life threatening disease.

“It all came crashing down.

 “I was just shaking and then also immediately, I had to go into ‘take-care-of-business-mode’ which included a change to a more healthy diet.

Christina has since had a full recovery after surgery.

Her mom is also a breast cancer survivor.
