Angelina Jolie might join Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Hollywood A-listers who embarked on successful political careers, as the actress, in a new interview, leaves the door open for an entry into the world of public service.

Speaking with December’s Vanity Fair, Jolie said, “I am open” to pursuing a career in the field, after years as an ambassador for the United Nations.

“When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered,” The Tomb Raider star told the magazine. “Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility.”

The 39-year-old said she’s unsure of the exact role she would have in Washington, D.C., admitting that her career in show business could “make it less possible” she’d be elected to a high position.

I am conscious of what I do for a living,” she said.

Brad Pitt’s new bride also told the magazine “it does feel different” to be married to her longtime partner, after a decade together.

“It feels nice to be husband and wife,” she said, less than three months after their nuptials in France.


The Oscar-winning actress said that her six kids (Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, Knox and Vivienne, 6) all pitched in to the long-awaited event.

“There was no cake, so Pax made a cake,” she said. “The kids made little pillows for the rings, and Knox,” in his role as a ring-bearer, practiced “with an acorn that kept falling off the pillow.

“Brad’s mom went and picked some flowers and tied them up.”

All of the kids wrote the marital vows for the couple, Jolie said.

“They did not expect us never to fight,” the Maleficent star said, “but they made us promise to always say ‘sorry’ if we do.

“So they said, ‘Do you?’ and we said, ‘We do!’”
