Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie Seeking Namibian Citizenship - Report

Angelina Jolie is in talks to become a citizen of Namibia so she can use her new title from Britain's Queen Elizabeth Ii, according to a U.K. report.

The Tomb Raider actress was named an honorary dame in the monarch's Birthday Honours List last week (ends15Jun14) for her humanitarian work, but she cannot use the title officially because she is not British or a Commonwealth citizen.

However, Jolie could be formally addressed as a dame if she is granted dual citizenship with Namibia because it is a Commonwealth country, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper. She already has ties to the African nation because her daughter Shiloh was born there in 2006 and has a Namibian passport.

A source tells the publication, "Angelina was blown away when she was made a dame. She thinks it will add gravitas to her in her humanitarian work."

A spokesperson for the Namibian Embassy says, "We would welcome Angelina Jolie to make an application for citizenship, just like anyone else."
