Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie is hinting that she may consider running for US President in 2020.

The actress and human rights advocate is refusing to rule out a leap in her political career with a presidential run.

During a British radio show, Jolie revealed that her own campaign for 2020 is not beyond the realms of possibility.

Speaking during an interview on the BBC’s Today program in London, Jolie said she would have dismissed the idea of political ambition 20 years ago but would now go where she felt she was needed.

In a wide-ranging interview with presenter Justin Webb, she discussed US politics, social media, sexual violence, and the global refugee crisis.

When asked whether she would consider getting involved in politics, she said: "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."

"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."

According to the Breitbart, the 43-year-old, who is a special envoy to the U.N. Refugee Agency, was the guest editor of the show on Friday when she made the revelation.


After hinting that she would consider a run in 2020, she added that “for now,” she would stay quiet, leaving open the possibility for a tilt further down the line.

She continued:

"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 so I’m pretty open and out there.

"I honestly will do whatever I think can really make change, and right now I am able to work with a UN agency that is the most in the field of all the UN agencies, to do a lot of work directly with the people in need."

Jolie has been a critic of President Donald Trump’s policies in the past,  saying his 2017 executive order temporarily suspending the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program is like “playing with fire” and will “worsen” America’s war against terrorists.
