Speaking to BBC in a recent television interview, Hollywood movie star Angelina Jolie indicated that she is not totally against running for politics in the future.

When asked by reporter Justin Webb whether she would be getting involved in politics, Jolie replied that it would have been a no 20 years ago but the answer today is more complicated:

“If you asked me 20 years ago, I would’ve laughed. 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.”

She added: “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.”

When Webb suggested that Jolie could run as a Democrat contender in the 2020 presidential election, all Jolie would say is “Thank you.”

Besides being an actress and director, Jolie has been serving as a special envoy to the U.N. Refugee Agency and has campaigned on various issues like refugees, sexual violence, and conservation.

Unlike several celebrities in Hollywood, though, Holie is not a registered Democrat. She said in 2008: “I think people assume I’m a Democrat. But I’m registered independent and I’m still undecided. So I’m looking at McCain as well as Obama.”
