Angelina Jolie: 'I'm kind of a closet geek'

altShe may be considered by many to be the essence of elegance and the queen of Hollywood glam, but Angelina Jolie has an admission: she’s really just a “closet geek.”

The Academy Award winning actress brought her A-list status to Washington on Tuesday, for the D.C. premiere of her film directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”

The big-screen drama follows a romance during the Bosnian War.

Appearing in a long, fitted gray jacket alongside Brad Pitt at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, Jolie, 36, revealed that politics makes for a frequent topic of conversation in her household: “I travel to a lot of places and I come home quite chatty about something I’ve witnessed, or something I’ve experienced, or something I’m angry about. I’ve gone a few times to the [International Criminal Court], to The Hague, to just sit and witness the trials. I’m kind of a closet geek so I talk about a lot of different things.”

The uber chic “geek’s” partner, Brad Pitt, said the couple gabs about government “all the time” and debates “how to get things done.”

A seemingly relaxed Pitt strolled down the line of reporters at the premiere with the help of a cane since injuring his leg in a recent fall while holding his daughter. The “Moneyball” star, 48, is wishing to ditch the walking stick rather than make it a new fashion accessory, telling ITK he’ll have the cane, “Not for long, I hope.”

But sounds as if local fans of the superstar duo shouldn’t hold out hope that the globetrotting celebs, who are parents to six children, will make the District their new home anytime soon.

When we asked Jolie if she’d ever consider making the move to Washington, the entertainer replied, “I don’t know. I don’t know how well I’d fit in!”
