LOS ANGELES, May 23 (UPI) -- Actress Angelina Jolie said she would consider running for political office if she could be effective, but thinks she wouldn't be taken seriously.

Jolie is no stranger to politics. She has pushed Congress to address humanitarian issues around the world. Jolie said she wouldn't rule out running for office, but she would need to be able to create change.

"If I thought I'd be effective, I would," Jolie told George Stephanopoulos in an interview on Good Morning America. "But I'm not sure if I would ever be taken seriously in that way and be able to be effective."

The Maleficent actress is a U.N. special envoy for refugees and the co-chair of the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict with Foreign Secretary William Hague. The summit will occur next month in London.
