Angelina Jolie on Friday would not rule out a future in politics, saying she will "go where I'm needed."

The Oscar-winning actress and current special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency added that she does not know if she is "fit for politics," in an interview with the BBC.


"If you asked me 20 years ago, I would've laughed," Jolie said when asked whether she would consider a move into politics.

"I always say I'll go where I'm needed. I don't know if I'm fit for politics ... but then I've also joked that I don't know if I have a skeleton left in my closet.” 

"I'm also able to work with governments and I'm also able to work with militaries, and so I sit in a very interesting place of being able to get a lot done,” she continued, before adding that she would stay quiet “for now.”

When the interviewer pressed on if her answer could mean that she could enter the 2020 race for the White House, Jolie did not say no, responding, “Thank you.” 

Jolie, who has served in the envoy role since 2012, will also be serving as an executive producer of a new current affairs program on BBC for children that will be released in 2019.

Jolie said the project aims to “help young people in different countries to be connected to each other and to have greater awareness and understanding of the news on an international basis."
