(Newser) – In her latest cover interview, this one for Vanity Fair, Angelina Jolie dishes on her recent marriage—and a possible future political career:

  • On marriage to Brad Pitt: "It does feel different. It feels nice to be husband and wife."
  • On the vows their children wrote for them: "They did not expect us never to fight, but they made us promise to always say, 'Sorry,' if we do. So they said, 'Do you?,' and we said, 'We do!'"
  • On the wedding as a family affair: "We were all going to have a wedding," Jolie said, according to E!. "There was no cake, so Pax made a cake. The kids made little pillows for the rings and Knox practiced [being a ring bearer] with an acorn that kept falling off the pillow. Brad's mom [Jane Pitt] went and picked some flowers and tied them up."

  • On whether politics are in her future: "When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered. Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility. But I honestly don’t know in what role I would be more useful—I am conscious of what I do for a living, and that [could] make it less possible." (Later, asked directly if she sees herself going into politics, public service, or diplomacy, Jolie says, "I am open.")
