Curriculum vitae for the role of visiting lecturer at LSE

Name: Angelina Jolie Pitt

Age: 40

Profession: Oscar-winning film star, director and political activist


  • Oscar-winning film star

Notable credits including playing action hero Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider film series, Mr & Mrs Smith, Maleficent – and last but not least voicing the tigress in the Kung Fu Panda series.

Won an Oscar for Girl, Interrupted, and also boasts a clutch of other awards including three Golden Globes.

  • Special envoy to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees

First joined as a goodwill ambassador in 2001, after witnessing the humanitarian crisis in Cambodia while filming for Tomb Raider.

Made a special envoy in 2012, having clocked up more than 50 trips to publicise the plight of refugees and displaced people.

  • All-round political activist

If it's a worthy cause, Jolie is there - from buying a house in hurricane Katrina-ravaged New Orleans, to personally buying up land for conservation projects and founding a school for girls at a refugee camp in Kenya.

Key skills:

  • Compelling - a woman named among the world's most desirable stars will always have the attention of her students

  • Multi-tasker - if you can juggle a starring role in a blockbuster with a clutch of humanitarian roles then teaching should be a piece of cake

  • Conflict resolution - she's been involved in some of the world's humanitarian disasters so minor squabbles will be no problem

  • Direct classroom experience - negligible....but surely students can't be worse than a crowd of rowdy extras when the canteen coffee's run out
