During the course of her long, illustrious career, Angelina Jolie has accomplished a ton in her new career. She’s starred in blockbuster films like Mr. and Mrs. Smith and television films like Gia. In addition, she’s earned an Emmy Award for her work in George Wallace and an Academy Award for her work in Girl, Interrupted. More recently, she’s picked up a Golden Globe nomination for her film, First, They Killed My Father. As she enters into the second decade of her career, Jolie’s focus could take a shift in the future.

During a recent guest spot on BBC Radio, Angelina Jolie took time to further her humanitarian work. Throughout her time as a “guest editor”, Jolie spotlighted refugee issues in the Middle East. Jolie also took time include Chinese artist Ai Weiwei and Nobel Peace Prize winner Denis Mukwege.

While on the show, Jolie spoke about the possibility of transitioning from humanitarian work to politics. As it pertains to a future in politics, Jolie said, “She can take a lot on the chin.” She later added, “If you asked me 20 years ago, I would’ve laughed.” She ended by saying, “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.”
