People is reporting that Angelina Jolie is coming back for that once-lost Sainthood. Remember when she previously teased us with the potential that the world would one day be making un-ironic “Angelina For President” posters? Well she’s back on that tip. Angie spoke with People for their latest issue all about the work she does around the world to help push forward women’s rights, and during the convo she threatened us with more of her political ambitions.
Angie is busy at work trying to save the women of the planet from corruption and evil. Angie is a UNHCR Special Envoy. She helps refugees fleeing war-torn countries and has used being a famous actress who cares to become big business in the world of philanthropy and being a good person… well being a good person to people you aren’t divorcing, at least. She works with the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative, which tries to stop the use of rape as a weapon in war and among the refugees who are running from it. While speaking to People about all this work she’s doing, she casually mentioned some political moves of her own, but thankfully it seems it won’t be happening soon:
“Never say never… [But] right now I am looking to others for leadership.”
Apart from that political tease, Angie got seriously into the nitty-gritty of how she wants us to save the women of the planet from being “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.”
Well if Angelina does ever decide to throw her hat into the political ring, she’ll be fighting with a lot of other high-class choices. Can’t wait to see what kind of a messy Presidential debate there will be between Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, Kanye West and Oscar Del La Hoya. It will really speak to people from all walks of life: wealthy actors, wealthy television hosts and entrepreneurs, wealthy musicians and wealthy former boxers. Really represents the American people well, don’t you think? With that being said, maybe Angie is perfect for politics since she can play dirty during a messy, messy battle.
