Angelina Jolie’s Political Ambitions

'The Normal Heart' New York Premiere

Angelina Jolie is a longtime humanitarian and Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations.  She was even promoted to Special Envoy in 2012 – where she officially represents the organization to governments and diplomats.  It wouldn’t be too far of a stretch to think she might have some political ambitions in her future.  She was recently asked by George Stephanopoulos about it during an appearance on Good Morning America.

The anchor recalled the Maleficent star telling him in 2005 that she had too many skeletons in her closet.

“I wonder if by now my skeletons are out?” Jolie said laughing. “They’re probably all out. I don’t know if I have any left!”

The mother of six with longtime partner Brad Pitt does admit to having interest in holding office, but only in the right conditions.

“If I thought I’d be effective, I would,” she continued. “But I’m not sure if I’d ever be taken seriously in that way and be able to be effective.”

I agree that her sexpot image and history as an actress would make it hard to take her seriously as an actual politician.  That said, she sure has done a heck of a lot more than most people in showing a legitimate concern, care and knowledge for refugees around the world.  I also agree that any leftover skeletons in her closet would hardly shock the masses at this point.

I would also- like to superficially state for the record that I am NOT a fan of Brad Pitt’s current look.  I also think it’s fair to state that normally flawless Jolie has a bit of a makeup ‘miss’ in these pics.

Angelina Jolie doesn’t feel that privileged moms should complain

Angelina Jolie doesn't feel that privileged moms should complain

Angelina Jolie is busy promoting her new Disney movie “Maleficent”, but has opened up about the stresses of motherhood. In her statement, she is self aware enough to know that she is privileged and doesn’t feel that she has a right to complain about the hardships associated with being a mother.

She said, “I’m not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day. I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food. My kids, they’re here upstairs.”

With regard to having time off, she said, “When I feel I’m doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that’s why I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it.”

When speaking of her schedule, she said, “I can say I can only get into the (editing) room after the kids are in school, and I have to be back for dinner, and they’re coming for lunch.”

She added, “I actually feel that women in my position, when we have all at our disposal to help us, shouldn’t complain. Consider all the people who really struggle and don’t have the financial means, don’t have the support, and many people are single raising children. That’s hard.”

Angelina Jolie pregnant with “miracle baby”

Angelina Jolie pregnant with "miracle baby"

Angelina Jolie could have all of her reproductive organs completely removed and “Star” magazine would still be making the claims that she’s having some sort of “miracle baby”. Perhaps they have tired themselves of falsely claiming that Jennifer Aniston is knocked up for the 700th time?

The actress appears on the cover of the latest issue of the magazine and she’s apparently pregnant again. Is she really feeling “blessed”? We doubt it. We highly doubt that Angie and Brad want a seventh child…isn’t six enough?

Where do they get that Angelina has gained twelve pounds? We just don’t see it. Perhaps she had a photo taken of her with a cheeseburger baby, felt it was a slow news week and decided to run with it.

What do you think?

Angelina Jolie talks Brad, the kids and her health in ‘People’

Angelina Jolie talks Brad, the kids and her health in 'People'

Angelina Jolie covers this week’s edition of “People” magazine and inside she talks about her fiance Brad, their six children together and her health.

She said that the kids may have some input on their wedding day. She revealed, “We are discussing it with the children and how they imagine it might be. Which is verging on hysterical, how kids envision a wedding. They will, in a way, be the wedding planners. It’s going to be Disney or paintball – one or the other.”

The Oscar winner, who briefly shares the screen with daughter Viv in Maleficent, out May 30, also opens up about how parenthood has transformed her relationship with Pitt, 50.

“You’re not lovers or boyfriend and girlfriend as much as you are a family,” she says.

The actress, who underwent a preventive double mastectomy last year, also discusses the impact of that decision.

“I’m really happy about the choices I’ve made,” she says, “and I feel even more connected to other people, especially women.”
