Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie hinted that she was open to making a splash in the political domain.

Jolie, 43, appeared on the BBC Today guest editor Friday and getting into a discussion about politics, she didn’t rule the idea out.

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

“So I’m pretty open and out there,” she said. “I can do a lot on the chin so that is good. But I honestly will do what I think can really change.”

Jolie noted that her years working in the U. N. has allowed her to work with other governments and armies.

“I’m also able to work with the authorities and I am also able to work with armies, and so I’m in a very interesting place of the human being able to get a lot done, without title, and without that it is about me or my policies. So for now I will be quiet,” she continued.

She was appointed as special envoy for the U. N. Refugee Agency in 2012. Before she was a special envoy, she was a Goodwill Ambassador, according to the U. N. website.

The “Changeling” star laughed when the host suggested she could be on the list of Democratic nominees considering a presidential run.
