Angelina Jolie has been made into an honorary Dame by Queen Elizabeth II. The A-list actress was chosen for recognition in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours for her campaigning work against sexual violence and the use of rape as a weapon of war.
Since Jolie is a foreign citizen, she cannot be addressed as Dame, but receives the award on an honorary basis.
Angelina reportedly said, "To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to. Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honour in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine."
