Actress Angelina Jolie is open to a political career, if that’s the best way to change the world. She said that today on BBC Radio 4.
Over the past years focused the ‘Maleficent’star, especially on humanitarian work as special envoy of the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), the refugee organisation of the UN. They built this relationship with all sorts of world leaders.
During an interview on BBC Radio 4, she was asked the question whether they have a political career would consider. Jolie stated that they will be open to the idea. “If you give me that 20 years ago had asked, I laughed”, she said. “I don’t know if I’m for the politics, but I am an open person and can do a lot of conventions, so that’s all good.”
The 43-year-old Jolie is (still) not ready to get on the bandwagon of the presidential elections to jump, but indicates that they are “all considering to really have to change the world”. “I can be with governments, UN agencies, and militaries to work together, and is therefore in a privileged position for many ready to play without that around myself or my policy runs. I will so for now trying to lay low.”
