Angelina Jolie Says She Has Not Ruled Out Going into Politics

Posted on

Angelina Jolie is well known. We know her from her beauty, her Hollywood film roles, her charitable work, and her marriage to Brad Pitt, but we have yet to know her because of politics.

This could change as the actress and U.N. envoy said to BBC radio that she has not ruled out a move into politics.

She said she “can take a lot on the chin” and when asked if she is moving in the direction of politics, the Oscar winner said, “I honestly will do whatever I think can really make change.”

.43-year old Jolie has made many headlines over the last year as she filed for a divorce from her actor husband Brad Pitt. The two had been in a custody battle that recently was settled between the two.

“Brad and Angelina will have joint physical and legal custody of the children,” a source close to Pitt told Us Weekly in November. “Over a period of the next six to eight weeks, the monitored visits will come to a conclusion. The children will immediately begin to have overnight visits with their father. The monitors will be in place for those first overnight visits, and this was done at Brad’s request. Brad recognizes this is going to be a change from what the norm had been and wants to make the transition as smooth as possible.”

Speaking of the children, Jolie said on BBC’s Radio 4’s Today, “[My kids] all have a good rebellious streak that is wonderful and curious. I don’t want them to be perfectly behaved little people that just say what’s absolutely appropriate because I say so. … They have to find themselves.”

“Children can do two things,” Jolie noted. “They can make you grow up, and you do, and they also add a sense of wild themselves.”
