Actress Angelina Jolie is the latest in a string of celebrities to criticize proposals for a so-called "mansion tax" in the U.K. that the Labour party has said it would introduce should it win a general election in 2015.

The actress told Channel 4 News on Tuesday that the party's plan to tax houses worth more than £2 million ($3.1 million) "could put me off" buying a home in the U.K. "I'm quite responsible about money," she told Channel 4 News.

The details of the controversial "Mansion Tax" proposals have not been revealed by the opposition Labour party but the plan has already attracted criticism from well-known U.K. personalities including TV presenters Myleene Klass and Griff Rhys Jones.
