Angelina Jolie is many things. Oscar-winning actress. Acclaimed director. Mother to six and wife to little-known character actor Brad Pitt.
But down the road — well, maybe she'll be something else…
Jolie, 39, spoke with Vanity Fair about a whole host of topics, including whether or not she thinks politics may play a part in her future. While she continues to serve as director and special envoy for the United Nation's High Commissioner for Refugees, she may be up for more work in that arena, saying she is "open" to a life in politics, diplomacy, or public service.
Jolie explained that her role with the U.N. has opened her eyes to what's possible, but she's also aware that people will likely always see her as a movie star first and foremost.
"If you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility," she told the magazine.
"But 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."
Would that mean calling in quits with Hollywood? Jolie isn't saying? But seeing as she has been a success in just about every endeavor she's tackled (we'll give her a pass for the Cinemax-esque thriller Original Sin), and has an otherworldly talent for juggling commitments, we wouldn't be surprised if she were to go full on into politics while continuing to dominate the box office.
Hey, if Arnold can do it….
Jolie also spoke about her life as a newlywed. She tells Vanity Fair that despite having been in a committed relationship to Pitt for years, things have changed since they tied the knot in August. "It does feel different," she said. "It feels nice."
Her second directorial effort, Unbroken, the true story of Olympic runner and World War II prisoner of war Louis Zamperini, will hit theaters this Christmas
Jolie's full interview will be available online on Thursday.
