LOS ANGELES: As Americans went to the polls for mid-term elections Tuesday, Angelina Jolie revealed that she is open to a possible role in politics, diplomacy or public service.

The A-list star, who is already known for her humanitarian work on various causes, wondered aloud whether she would better achieve her aims as an actress or in another role.

"When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered," she told Vanity Fair in a cover story.

"Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility," she added, before saying: "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."

Asked directly if she could pursue a life in politics, diplomacy or public service, she replied: "I am open." She gave no more details.

Since 2012 Jolie has traveled on more than 40 missions around the world as a special envoy for the United Nations Refugee Agency. Last year Jolie was awarded an honorary Oscar for her humanitarian work.

End.
