US actress gets Cambodian citizenship
font size    

US Hollywood star Angelina Jolie was granted a Cambodian citizenship recently by King Norodom Sihamoni, an NGO official said on Friday.

King Sihamoni signed a royal decree approving Jolie's citizenship on July 31, said Suwanna Ganntlett, country director of WildAid.

The reward is for Jolie's grand environmental work and assistance done to Cambodia, Suwanna Ganntlett said, adding that the movie star has provided 1.5 million US dollars to assist wildlife reserves in Cambodia's remote northwestern provinces.

She also adopted a Cambodian boy in 2002.

During Jolie's stay here last July, Prime Minister Hun Sen mentioned to offer her citizenship. After meeting with Hun Sen, Jolie said that she was very proud and honored that Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen would give her a Cambodian citizenship.

Jolie often visits Cambodia and has been campaigning on environmental issues. She fell in love with Cambodia when shooting the famous movie "Tom Raider" in Cambodia in 2001.
