5 Stars Who’ve Considered A Move Into Politics

It may be a completely different world to their glamorous Hollywood lives, but these 5 stars are all considering a move in to politics at some point in the future. Realizing they can make a real difference to the world and work on issues that are really important to them, these stars have at least thought about launching a political career of their own, and could get involved at some point when the time is right for them.

Angelina Jolie


Angelina can see that there is good she could do by entering politics: “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. 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.”

Ashley Judd

Ashley was considering running for Senate last year but decided to drop out of the race: “After serious and thorough contemplation, I realize that my responsibilities and energy at this time need to be focused on my family. Regretfully, I am currently unable to consider a campaign for the Senate.”

Ben Affleck

Ben’s wife Jennifer hinted that he may get involved in politics in the future: “Right now [Ben] feels like he can do more good for people politically from outside the system … Would I be surprised if one day he did go into politics? No. But not now.”

George Clooney

A source close to George revealed that the actor would love to join a political party: “He has big ambitions and aims to get into politics imminently. He wants to do more humanitarian work and hopes to join the Democrats’ 2016 election campaign.”

Will Smith

Will’s wife Jada once revealed that Will would love to go into politics sometime: “Will is thinking about going into politics. He once said he could imagine becoming a U.S. president. He wasn’t joking, he was quite serious about it.”
