Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has hinted that she is considering a move into politics in the future.
She said she would have dismissed this 20 years ago but would now go where she was needed.
Jolie, who is a special envoy to the UN Refugee Agency, was the guest editor of the Today programme on Friday.
She is an active campaigner on a range of issues, including refugees, sexual violence and conservation.
In a wide-ranging interview with presenter Justin Webb, she discussed US politics, social media, sexual violence and the global refugee crisis.
When asked whether she would consider getting involved in politics, she said: "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."
