‘Bored with Hollywood’ Jolie ‘eyes White House’ for fulfilmentJune 23rd, 2009 - 12:26 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 23 (ANI): Angelina Jolie is reportedly bored with the Hollywood industry and is considering turning to politics to make a difference in the world.
The actress, who has been highlighting the plight of refugees and victims of war and poverty while serving as a UN goodwill ambassador for the last eight years, is allegedly keen on entering the White House.
“Ange has admitted she’s getting bored with Hollywood. She said she’s now got her sights set on Washington,” The Daily Express quoted a friend as saying.
“She is passionate about people’s rights, war and justice and thinks she can get more hands-on and make even more of a difference by getting into politics. She admires Obama and thinks she could make a big difference too if she were in his position,” the pal added.
The 34-year-old may follow in the footsteps of fellow stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger with her increased interest in extending humanitarian work.
The friend added: “I would place a huge wager on her becoming the first female president in the next 20 years. When Ange sets her mind on something, she goes all out to do it.
“She’s very determined and gets very stirred by her UN work. She is well respected for her humanitarian work and I’m sure she would make as many waves if she moved fully into the political world.”
Jolie, who shares six adopted and biological children with partner Brad Pitt, recently piped Oprah Winfrey as the world’s most powerful celebrity in a list put together by Forbes magazine. (ANI)
