Angelina Jolie has not ruled out a move into politics - and has joked that she might be tough enough to take the rough and tumble that comes with it.
The American actress and UN envoy told BBC radio she "can take a lot on the chin" - a possible reference to her bitter divorce from Brad Pitt.
When asked if she is moving in the direction of politics, the 43-year-old Oscar winner said, "I honestly will do whatever I think can really make change."
"If you asked me 20 years ago, I would've laughed... I always say I'll go where I'm needed, I don't know if I'm fit for politics. but then I've also joked that I don't know if I have a skeleton left in my closet".
"I'm also able to work with governments and I'm also able to work with militaries, and so I sit in a very interesting place of being able to get a lot done," she added.
Jolie is a special envoy for the UN refugee agency.
The actress used her slot as a "guest editor" on the BBC to highlight refugee issues in the Middle East.
She also included Chinese artist Ai Weiwei and Nobel Peace Prize winner Denis Mukwege on the show.
