Angelina Jolie Is 'Open' to Running for Office
The actress also talks about the vows she and Brad Pitt's children wrote for them
Ambassador Jolie? Senator Jolie? President Jolie?
Don’t count it out, because she’s not – though Angelina Jolie does admit to being conflicted about her political aspirations.
“When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered. Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility,” she tells Vanity Fair for its December issue, on newsstands Nov. 11, when asked about seeking office one day.
Yet the 39-year-old actress, who is a celebrated humanitarian and United Nations special envoy for refugees, isn’t sure if she could switch to politics full-time.
“I honestly don’t know in what role I would be more useful – I am conscious of what I do for a living, and that [could] make it less possible,” admits Jolie, whose film Unbroken, which she directed and starred in, comes out on Christmas.
Her bottom line on a possible future in politics, diplomacy or public service? “I am open,” she says.
She also speaks about the adorable vows the couple’s children wrote for their wedding day.
“They did not expect us never to fight,” she says. “But they made us promise to always say sorry if we do. So they said, ‘Do you?’ And we said, ‘We do!’ ”
