Addressing rumours that she is on the hunt for a property around London, Angelina Jolie has said that she might be discouraged after Ed Miliband's proposed mansion tax.

Speaking to Channel 4 News, Jolie said, reported The Telegraph: "They kind of do say that often with us wherever we land. They've [the media] figured out that I'm quite fond of England. I have lived here before and in the future it would be very nice to have a foothold here for work. Some kind of an office I think would be nice."

Jolie further said, "I'm quite responsible about money", however, Miliband's proposed plans to levy tax on properties worth more than £2m "could put me off" from purchasing a property in the UK.

If rumours are to be believed, Jolie recently viewed a £25 million, five bedroom, penthouse in Marylebone, London.

Peter Rollings, CEO of estate agency Marsh & Parsons had predicted something similar.

"Labour's mansion tax proposals would not only injure London's international reputation and prestige as a city open for business and investment, but would lumber the capital's homeowners with an even weightier tax burden and potentially stifle the market," said Rollings.

Miliband's controversial mansion tax has attracted a lot of criticism with some calling it "bizarre" and "arbitrary".
