Angelina Jolie reveals she could copy Trump and run for political office
28th December 2018

The Hollywood megastar suggested she could end up becoming a politician in an echo of Donald Trump's career transformation.

She vowed to "do whatever is needed to make change" and joked she's so well-known that nobody would be able to dig up dirt on her.

Ms Jolie even refused to rule out running for US President as she guest-edited the BBC's Today programme.

Presenter Justin Webb pointed to her history of activism over issues such as refugees, saying: "Are you moving in a direction of politics?"

Angie replied: "Honestly if you'd asked me 20 years ago I would have laughed – I really don't know.

"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 have a skeleton left in my closet so I'm pretty open and out there.

"I can take a lot on the chin, so that's good."

The actress added: "I honestly will do whatever I think can really make change and right now I am able to work with a UN agency to do a lot of work directly with people in need.

"I sit in a very interesting place of being able to get a lot done without a title and without it being about myself and my policies.

"So for now I'll sit quiet."

When Mr Webb said she'd put her on the list of potential Democratic challengers to Mr Trump in 2020, Ms Jolie responded "Thank you."

The Oscar-winning star is a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

She worked closely with William Hague when he was Foreign Secretary to end sexual violence as a weapon of war.
