“When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered,” Jolie told the magazine. “Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility.” She quickly added: “But I honestly don’t know in what role I would be more useful. I am conscious of what I do for a living, and that [could] make it less possible.”

The actress and director has a prolific history of political activism. In October, Queen Elizabeth II made Jolie an honorary dame for her work against sexual violence in war zones and her services to British foreign policy.
