Angelina Jolie made honorary Dame by the Queen
Angelina Jolie has been included into an honorary Dame by Queen Elizabeth for her dedication to campaigning against sexual violence and the use of rape as a weapon of war.
The 39-year-old Oscar winning actress said that to receive an honor related to foreign policy meant a great deal to her, as it was what she wished to dedicate her working life to, Contactmusic reported.
Jolie said that working on PVSI (Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative) and with survivors of rape was an honor in itself and she knew that succeeding in their goals will take a lifetime, and she was dedicated to it for all of mine.
Jolie won't be entitled to use her new royal title because she is not a British or Commonwealth citizen.
Three-time Oscar winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis received a knighthood for services to drama.
