Is Angelina Jolie Running for political office? The beautiful brunette Mom said she would consider running for political office.

In addition to being an Oscar winning film star and mother to six children, the actress is a notable humanitarian - supporting a number of children's charities, lobbying the US government with human rights interests and being a special envoy for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) - and says one day she could possibly run for office.

Speaking on 'Good Morning America' she said: ''You know, if I thought I'd be effective, I would. But I'm not sure if I would ever be taken seriously in that way, and be able to be effective.''

The 38-year-old star also took the brave decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy last year, and says that decision has helped bring her both closer to people and raise awareness, which has had a very positive effect.

She added: ''I wasn't worried about it, but I didn't expect there to be so much support. And I was very moved by it... It's connected me so much to other families, other women.

''And you know, and now when I meet people, we don't talk as much about films, but we talk about their children, or women's choices, or their wives. It's been a really beautiful journey.''
