Angelina Jolie talks about global refugee crisis, sexual violence, hints at move into politics

The state of the world we are all living in, with so much instability and the numbers rising on refugees, we are at 68 million people displaced, the actress said.

Hollywood mega star Angelina Jolie discussing the U.S. politics, the global refugee crisis, sexual violence, and social media on a British show hinted at moving into politics.

The 43-year-old actress, known for her warrior and dangerous roles, is a special envoy to the United Nations Refugee Agency. She was guest editor at the programme on Friday.  

Jolie had expressed her wish to join politics in 2014.

She has been living in different parts of the world since 2012 and helping people in need on humanitarian grounds.

Replying to a question, Jolie said, the state of the world we are all living in, with so much instability and the numbers rising on refugees, we are at 68 million people displaced.

How do we get to the core of what is happening and who are the different people that are offering solutions, she added.  

When asked whether she would enter politics, she said, if she was asked this question 20 years ago, she would have laughed but now she could go where needed.

She said, “I am able to work with governments and I am also able to work with militaries, and so I sit in a very interesting place of being able to get a lot done.”  

When the programme host, Justin Webb, asked, could she be on the list of 30, 40 Democrats running for the party’s presidential nomination, she replied “thank you.”
