But running the country isn't so bad...

New Zealand's Prime Minister missed out on a role in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Jacinda Ardern has confirmed reports she auditioned for filmmaker Peter Jackson and she still has no idea if he knew he turned down the chance to cast his country's future leader.

"I don't know that I've ever had that conversation with him," she said during a recent interview with U.S. late night TV host Stephen Colbert.
