Angelina Jolie is an actress, director, producer, writer, activist, and mother but she might be adding politician to her resumé.
During an interview with the BBC on Friday, Jolie, who is a special envoy to the U.N. Refugee Agency, was asked about making a move into politics and she did not shoot the idea down.
“If you asked me 20 years ago, I would’ve laughed,” Jolie said. “I always say I’ll go where I’m needed. I don’t know if I’m fit for politics. But then I’ve also joked that I don’t know if I have a skeleton left in my closet.”
She continued, “I honestly will do whatever I think can really make change and right now I am able to work with a U.N. agency that is the most in the field of all the U.N. agencies to a lot of work with the people in need. I’m also able to work with governments and I’m also able to work with militaries, and so I sit in a very interesting place of being able to get a lot done without a title and without it being about myself or my policies.”
This idea is not completely out of left field. Our sources say when Jolie split with Brad Pitt, she brought in two public relations experts who specialize in politics because she was concerned with how the split might affect her work with the U.N.
During the interview, Angelina Jolie also discussed her family and their relationship with social media and disclosed that none of them are on Facebook.
“We’re the last family that hasn’t gone on Facebook!” she joked.
