The Hollywood actor is elated with the honour conferred upon her

Actress Angelina Jolie has been made an honorary Dame by Queen Elizabeth.

The Maleficent actress was among the stars recognised in Queen Elizabeth’s list of Birthday Honours for her dedication to campaigning against sexual violence and the use of rape as a weapon of war, reports contactmusic.com.

The 39-year-old Oscar-winning beauty, who is the co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PVSI), said: “To receive an honour 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.”

Jolie, who cannot be addressed as Dame because she is a foreign citizen, was in London with her fiance Brad Pitt this week, leading a global summit on the issue.
