    Angelina Jolie Named Honorary Citizen of Sarajevo

    Angelina Jolie Splash News

    Angelina Jolie has long been a citizen of the world. And now she has the honorary citizenship to prove it.

    The actress and humanitarian has been celebrated by the capital of Bosnia, after being named an honorary citizen as a result of the good she did while filming her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, in the nation last year.

    Sarajevo authorities made the announcement today, saying that the 36-year-old was being recognized for the stellar job she did maintaining "the truth about the war" in Bosnia in her film.

    Brad Pitt's fiancée will be formally honored for her good deed in a ceremony held in the capital city on May 3, though it's unclear as yet whether the star will attend the event.

    What is clear is that the nation holds a dear place in her heart, as earlier this year she broke down in tears onstage while her film premiered in the war-torn nation.

    "I care so deeply for all of you in this country," she said at the time. Clearly, the feeling is mutual.
