Hollywood beauty Angelina Jolie is opposed to the idea of U2 frontman Bono becoming the new WORLD BANK boss - she is championing former US Secretary of State COLIN POWELL.

The Lara Croft: Tomb Raider actress, who recently visited Washington DC as a goodwill ambassador for the UN, is a big fan of the VERTIGO singer but she thinks Powell's experience makes him the perfect candidate.

Jolie, 29, says, "I've met Bono and I think he's a great guy, but my choice for the World Bank would be Colin Powell."
