Britain makes Jolie an honorary dame

Angelina Jolie has been made an honorary dame in Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday honours list released, as Britain paid tribute to the Hollywood star for her efforts to combat warzone rape. The American actress, who US Secretary of State John Kerry described as “a fierce and fearless advocate”, leads a list of film idols, sports stars, authors and designers recognised for their services to the United Kingdom.
Daniel Day-Lewis receives a knighthood, while his fellow Oscar-winning film star Dame Maggie Smith — the star of TV period drama “Downton Abbey” and the “Harry Potter” films is made a companion of honour.
Jolie was given the female equivalent of a knighthood for her services to British foreign policy in her campaign to end sexual violence in conflict zones.
She co-hosted a four-day global conference in London on the issue with British Foreign Secretary William Hague, during which Kerry suggested she had played her most lasting role, “the role of fierce and fearless advocate”.
