Angelina Jolie has said she would consider a career in politics "if I felt I could really make a difference".
Speaking to ITV News' Julie Etchingham she also strongly criticised the international response to crises such as the Syrian civil war, saying "we simply aren't doing enough".
Jolie is currently promoting her latest film, Unbroken, which she directed. The film stars young Brit rising star Jack O'Connell as the late Louis Zamperini, a Second World War hero and athlete who ran in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
The Hollywood star has travelled to the Middle East to visit refugees from the Syrian conflict, which has seen thousands killed and millions displaced.
On the domestic front, she said she might consider buying a "foothold" in London, saying she had "so many colleagues" in the capital and she "loves working here".
But she said reports suggesting she was planning to move her family to the UK were "made-up stories".
Jolie also said she could see herself doing more directing in future.
"I simply say there are a few more roles I would like to play. My children will be in their teens soon and there is more i want to do, so I am sure acting will take a back seat at sometime."
