    Angelina Jolie has proven that she can pretty much do it all. She stars in hit blockbusters, directs critically acclaimed films, serves as a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN, raises six children and looks flawless every time she steps out of the house.

    In fact, we’ve actually started wondering if she has super powers. But while we may think her talents are limitless, there’s one role she’s not convinced she could conquer.

    In an interview with Good Morning America, the Maleficent star, 38, was asked if she’d consider running for political office. After all, she’s devoted loads of time and effort into global humanitarian issues and has many friends in politics. But Angie isn’t convinced she’s the woman for the job.

    ‘You know, if I thought I’d be effective, I would,’ she said. ‘But I’m not sure if I would ever be taken seriously in that way, and be able to be effective.’

    Come on, Angie. If Arnold Schwarzenegger can be taken seriously enough to be elected Governor of California, surely you can, too!

    Jokes aside, Angelina has proven that she’s passionate about human rights issues – and she’s clearly very clever and hard-working. But she may have a point. Could people ever stop seeing her as a glamorous A-list actress and take her seriously in a position of leadership?

    What do you think? Should Angie consider running for political office in the U.S.?
