I have to say I love that Angelina Jolie doesn’t give in to the typical uber liberal Hollywood BS that is about political correctness and being supposedly progressive and tolerant and fair and whatever other bullsh*t there is on the liberal spectrum. To disclose, I am an independent and obviously think conservatives who believe gays cause hurricanes or rape isn’t rape if the woman gets wet are idiots, but this is about Hollywood which is super liberal.
Anyway, when asked about gender equality and having a female president by Christiane Amanpour, here’s Angelina’s reply:
Amanpour asked Jolie what her perspective is on one of the last great bastions of gender equality in America; is the United States due a female president and is the woman for the job Hillary Clinton?
“Of course it would be wonderful to see her run… I think it should be the best person for the job regardless”, Jolie stated.
“I think it’s certainly time but that shouldn’t be the reason to vote for someone either”
Love it! She could have pulled an Eva Longoria who is basically an idiot who just parrots stupid liberal beliefs, in which case the correct answer would be along the lines of “Yeah it’s terrible there’s no woman president, blah blah, this is an injustice worse than the Holocaust.”
Jolie also made the politically incorrect statements of being completely in favor of guns, stating in 2008 to the DailyMail:
“I bought original, real guns of the type we used in Tomb Raider for security. Brad and I are not against having a gun in the house, and we do have one. And yes, I’d be able to use it if I had to…If anybody comes into my home and tries to hurt my kids, I’ve no problem shooting them.”
