Angelina Jolie ‘open’ to a political run


Angelina Jolie says she’s “open” to a career in politics but doesn’t know if she would be “more useful” as a candidate or as an entertainer.

The “Maleficent” star and United Nations special envoy for refugee issues tells Vanity Fair during an interview in its Nov. 11 issue, “When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered.” The magazine released excerpts of the interview Tuesday.

“Because if you really want to make an extreme change,” the 39-year-old actress says, “then you have a responsibility.”

The mom of six, who tied the knot with longtime beau Brad Pitt over the summer, didn’t elaborate on whether she had any plans to give up blockbuster movies for the campaign trail. When the magazine asked whether she sees herself pursuing a life in politics, diplomacy or public service, Jolie simply replied, “I am open.”
