Angelina Jolie‘s always been the perfect fit for politics, considering her interest in humanitarian issues and her worldwide fame. However, she’d always denied her intent to participate in the past, claiming that she preferred to stick to movies and working in refugee aid. But alas, it seems like Mr. Jolie might have changed her mind recently, since she hinted at a possible career in politics in December’s Vanity Fair issue.
She explained, “When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered. Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility.”
It’s certainly coincidental timing, considering that she’s an Oscar hopeful for Best Director [Unbroken], and she’s also promoting the movie at the same time. She’s definitely not going to go out of her way to rush this possible start on politics, but Angelina’s very accurate about what she says. Arnold Schwarzenegger realized it, and I have a feeling that Angelina Jolie would be a lot more adept at it than the Governator.
Plus, Angelina Jolie’s intentions regarding politics are not in the least bit selfish, and she’s only thinking about it to further aid her humanitarian efforts. Someone like that deserves praise, even though all this politics and office talk might be a tad bit too early. I’m sure Angelina Jolie will direct a few more movies and possibly act in a few more movies, before she retires for good and moves into politics.
