ANGELINA JOLIE HINTS SHE MAY CONSIDER A SHIFT TO THE POLITICAL

And in December, the actress even hinted at the accession to the realm of politics in an interview on the BBC Today.

“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.

Jolie also 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’m going to sit quietly,” she added.

The “Salt” star 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.
