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.
