"The King signed the legal paper and that means she now has Cambodian citizenship," Toun Siphan, director of the government's international relation department, told Reuters. The actress, who adopted her son Maddox, from Cambodia, has agreed to donate $5 million dollars over the next 15 years to set up a wildlife sanctuary in a former Khmer Rouge stronghold in the northwestern province of Battambang.
