Vanity Fair’s December cover star is none other than actress and director Angelina Jolie, looking particular striking in a simple, white button-down shirt and with her piercing blue eyes front and centre. In the issue, the humanitarian activist and UN Special Envoy opens up for the first time about her summer marriage to long-term partner Brad Pitt, and the fact that she’s "open" to taking her passion for global goodwill to the next level with a career in politics.
The Oscar winner said of married life that “it feels nice to be husband and wife,” and the couple’s honeymoon is a clear indication that they’re on the same page. Angelina and Brad are celebrating their nuptials in Malta shooting the film By The Sea together, with Angelina also in the director’s seat.
The film, written by Mrs. Pitt, is the couple’s first joint venture since the 2005 movie that set their romance ablaze, Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
But Angelina, whose hugely successful acting career includes Oscar wins and a foray into directing, admitted that she could leave the film set in order to pursue a career in politics – if her Hollywood career didn’t get in her way.
“When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered. Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility,” the Maleficent star said.
“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 mother-of-six, who is known for her extensive humanitarian efforts and as a prominent United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, then stated that she is "open" to the idea.
