Angelina Jolie has coyly admitted she is rooting for Barack Obama to win the forthcoming U.S. presidential elections - because his administration would be "nice" for her multicultural family.
The campaigning actress, who has adopted three children from impoverished countries, believes the Democratic hopeful will put an end to injustices in the developing world.
And although the actress won't divulge who she is planning on voting for at the ballot box next month (Nov08), she insists she will not choose a future president because of his "roots".
She tells the German edition of Vanity Fair, "Obama fights for international justice, he wants to militarily intervene in cases of genocide, and close Guantanamo Bay. These are the things that could move me to vote for him, not his roots.
"Naturally, an American president like Barack Obama would be nice for my family."
Jolie, who has children from Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam, apparently doesn't share similar political views to her actor father Jon Voight - he is a staunch John MCCain supporter.
