Angelina Jolie Hints That She Might Get Involved in Politics!

Angelina Jolie is opening up about her potential political career!

The 43-year-old special envoy the UN Refugee Agency sat down for an interview as a guest editor on BBC’s Today on Friday (December 28).

“If you asked me 20 years ago, I would’ve laughed…I always say I’ll go where I’m needed, I don’t know if I’m fit for politicsโ€ฆ but then I’ve also joked that I don’t know if I have a skeleton left in my closet,” she said.

“I honestly will do whatever I think can really make change…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.”

She then added that she would stay quiet “for now,” but also did not say no to the idea of being put on a list of potential presidential nominees in 2020.

    Angie has plenty of time to run for office if she wants to.
    Times are changing and many women are stepping up to make a change.
    It will be interesting to see where she is in 10years time.

    Kanye, Oprah now Angelina. With all due respect to Angelina’s work with the UN she hasn’t spoken about US domestic policies or laws. I thought the US media learned from Trump to stop raising people up to become president just because they are famous.

  • Leopardโ€™s skin

    Angelina or any American can run for presidency if they wish. Just because they havenโ€™t shouted the laws, policies and what have you from the rooftops doesnโ€™t mean they are incapable. Thatโ€™s what campaigning is about.

    The star is the limit Angelina ๐Ÿ˜

  • Nan

    I think she happy what she is doing now, her work with the U.N. agency is very important as she do lot work directly with the people in need and give them voice.

  • MayaUK

    She wonโ€™t run as she has more power without an official position. She is not hampered by politics or has to satisfy certain groups as an independent/neutral party.

  • Orianna Petroy

    Exactly,girl!BTW i’m still mad with you from yesterday๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜˜

  • Orianna Petroy

    ITAWY!!!!๐Ÿ’•

  • plez

    First Trump shows us that it does mean they are incapable. Plus anyone who truly knows how much work Angelina puts into her UN work would know she would not step into a candidate role without doing the hard work on laws and policies.

  • Orianna Petroy

    Don’t you worry!She is doing just fine from where she is now.But just by putting this possibility on table,made her haters to lose their mind….and this is funny…

    Her โ€œpowerโ€ and โ€œinfluenceโ€ are nonexistent. She has no,power to effect change. She just likes having her ego stroked by idiots at the UN
