    Default Angelina Jolie and Daniel Day-Lewis are on Queen Elizabeth's Birthday Honours List

    Angelina Jolie Made an Honorary Dame by Queen Elizabeth II! | Just Jared




    Angelina meeting with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and foreign secretary William Hague on Thursday (June 12) at Clarence House in London, England.

    Angelina Jolie has been made an honorary dame by England’s Queen Elizabeth II for her work combating sexual violence in war zones. Angelina will not be able to use the title of “dame” before her name though as she is not a British or Commonwealth citizen.

    Previous United States citizens have received honorary knighthoods include director Steven Spielberg, former President Ronald Reagen, and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

    “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,” Angelina said (via Associated Press). 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.”

    Her commitment seems to come from a genuine place, can't hate her for that. She does do a lot on her own without the cameras present.

    Although it's unfortunate we do live in a culture of celebrity and it does bring attention to the issue at hand. Don't hate the player, hate the game

    I don't like her, and I don't want President Jolie-Pitt and First Lady Brad.

    ^^Although arranged like that, the idea is definitely more palatable than "President Pittstain and First Lady Holie-Shitt."

    Actor joins Angelina Jolie and more than 1,100 other names on honours list

    Multi-award-winning actor, and Wicklow resident, Daniel Day-Lewis is to be knighted.

    He is one of more than 1,100 people from the UK and beyond to be recognised in Queen Elizabeth’s Birthday Honours list.

    The holder of three Oscars, four Baftas (all for best actor) and many other awards, Day-Lewis’s roles include Christy Brown in My Left Foot, Abraham Lincoln in the eponymous film, and Gerry Conlon in In The Name Of The Father.

    Angelina Jolie, another Academy award winner, is to receive an honorary damehood for her fight against sexual violence in war zones. She co-chaired the End Sexual Violence in Conflict global summit this week and is special envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

    Her name is included on the overseas and diplomatic list.
    Fashion designer Zandra Rhodes is also among those to become a dame.

    Also honoured is Stephen Sutton, the internet campaigner and fundraiser (19), who died from bowel cancer last month. His MBE was awarded before his death on May 14th.

    Prof Thomas Kibble, senior research fellow and emeritus professor of theoretical physics at Imperial College London, receives a knighthood for his work on the Higgs boson particle.

    Judith Gillespie, former PSNI deputy chief constable, is to get a CBE. She already has an OBE.

    Northern Ireland Tourist Board chairman Howard Hastings received an OBE. Dr Hastings is also managing director of Hastings Hotels.

    There are 95 names on the Northern Ireland list.

    Northern Ireland-born born Kelly Gallagher, the first Briton to win a skiing gold medal at the paralympics, receives an MBE.

    Warren Gatland, British and Irish Lions rugby coach, gets an OBE while Laura Davies, star of British and Irish golf teams, becomes a dame.
