Could we one day see Angelina Jolie running for public office?

“Never say never,” the 43-year-old actress and U.N. special envoy told People magazine in a new interview published on Wednesday.

“[But] right now I am looking to others for leadership," she noted.

ANGELINA JOLIE HINTS SHE MAY CONSIDER SHIFTING FROM ACTING TO POLITICS

In her role with the U.N.'s High Commission for Refugees, Jolie recently urged nations to deploy more women peacekeepers in order to prevent sexual violence against refugees.

“I try to speak for what I believe in,” Jolie said, adding that "we have to change laws that treat women as second-class citizens."

“If you look across the world, there are far too many women and girls who are not only not seeing progress, their rights are slipping away from them,” she explained.
