London, Mar 3 : Angelina Jolie admits that she's had a few close calls ever since taking on the role of UN goodwill ambassador.
The 'Mr and Mrs Smith' star revealed that she has used some desperate tactics while paying a visit to danger spots the world over as part of her work for the UN.
"I've had close calls. I've been in countries where people tried to take my passport - I've had to hide in a room because there were people outside who were dangerous," the Daily Express quoted her, as saying.
The actress also opened up about her political activism, insisting she was privileged to be able to work for a good cause.
"As for political activism, I've been educating myself on things that are happening around the world," she adds.
"It's a privilege to be able to do it. I feel motivated to say or do something because I'm in a position to do so."
However, she is clear that even her work as a UN ambassador and acting have to take a back seat when it comes to her children.
"Obviously my priorities are my children. They are growing up. I'll be doing even less work because that's what I prefer to do," she said.
"I'm a mom first. I don't know if I'm as much an ambassador as I'm a citizen of the world. I just want to learn about the world and its cultures. Lastly, I'm an actress."
Jolie is currently said to be expecting twins with partner Brad Pitt. The couple have one biological child Shiloh, and are three adopted kids - Maddox, Pax and Zahara.
