Cambodia’s prime minister today offered Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie Cambodian citizenship in recognition of her nature conservation work in his poverty-stricken country.
Jolie, who adopted her Cambodian son Maddox two years ago, said Prime Minister Hun Sen made the citizenship proposal during a meeting today.
“He did mention giving me Cambodian citizenship, and I would be honoured and thrilled. So I’m sure I’ll be moving forward to actually receiving that,” she said.
Jolie, 29, is giving a Cambodian community development organisation €1.5m for its environmental protection efforts in remote parts of the country’s northwest.
Cambodia allows dual citizenship.
