Amanpour told Oprah Winfrey in an interview that Rubin was "the poster child for good husbands."

"Jamie is a true hero," she told Oprah.

"He was in the Clinton administration, and when that ended in 2000, my husband, a Democrat, didn't have an administration to work for.

"I'm telling you this in the interest of transparency. But in truth really mostly as a shout out to early diagnosis," she said.

"To urge women to educate themselves on this disease to get all the regular screenings and scans that you can, to always listen to your body, and of course, to ensure your legitimate medical concerns are not dismissed or diminished." 

The star reporter is CNN's chief international anchor of the award-winning, flagship show Amanpour, which also airs on PBS in the US.
