Angelina Jolie on If She'd Run for Office: 'Never Say Never'

Angelina Jolie on If She'd Run for Office: 'Never Say Never'

Would Angelina Jolie ever become a politician?

“Never say never,” the 43-year-old actress, director, and humanitarian told People. “[But ] right now I am looking to others for leadership.”

She also said of her activism, “If you look across the world, there are far too many women and girls who are not only not seeing progress, their rights are slipping away from them.”

She wants new laws drawn up, but that’s not all “We also have to enforce them. So one of the things we are putting forward now is a proposal for a permanent international body to investigate war crimes, including mass rape and other sexual and gender-based violence.”

“The second UN mission I went on, to Cambodia, I met two women from England and France, Katie and Mimi, who were working with UNHCR. Loung was there as well, and we did a UN and HALO mission,” Angelina said of making lifelong friends during her missions. “We have all been friends ever since, for coming up on twenty years now. I feel very blessed in my work to have the opportunity to meet so many extraordinary people who spend their lives dedicated to others.”
