The uk makes Angelina Jolie an honorary dame

LONDON: the uk has made the Oscar-winning Hollywood celebrity Angelina Jolie an honorary dame for services to united kingdom (uk) foreign policy and her campaigning to finish sexual physical violence in battle zones.
Jolie, who's special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), was amongst 1,149 people to get an honor for their contribution to British society in the annual Queen's Birthday Honours list published on Saturday.

The list features a posthumous MBE for teenage cancer tumors sufferer and fundraiser Stephen Sutton and a knighthood for actor Daniel Day-Lewis.

Jolie, 39, co-founded the stopping Sexual Violence Initiative with international Secretary William Hague in 2012 and was one of the speakers at a major meeting on the subject in London recently.

Since she is not a British citizen she cannot be addressed as Dame, but receives the award on an honorary basis.
