Some have wondered, though, whether Jolie will ever run for political office herself, and speaking to People, the 43-year-old actually leaves the door open to the possibility.

“Never say never,” she says, “[but] right now I am looking to others for leadership.”

At the moment, Jolie is a UNHCR Special Envoy, helping refugees fleeing from dangerous and war-torn countries, and also works with the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative.

“I try to speak for what I believe in,” Jolie says of her efforts.
