Over the weekend, the world was shocked (shocked!) to see Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt hanging out in Venice with Angelina’s dad, Jon Voight. Voight and Jolie had been estranged for nearly eight years, although Angelina had claimed in numerous interviews over the last few years that she and her dad have been engaged on their factors. It appeared that we had photographic proof that the hatchet was buried, or irrespective of, and folks of us (me) who’ve been cautious of Voight for a while merely decided to bide our time, prepared for him to f-ck up as soon as extra. What’s that? Oh, certain. You see, Jon Voight loves to discuss his daughter and her life, even doing so as soon as they’ve been estranged. Voight loves to discuss each half, in truth, and the particular person is type of crazy (one factor about apples falling from timber, et cetera).
So Voight is once more inside the US, and naturally he’s talking. Nevertheless he made a valiant effort to keep up from weeping hysterically on digital digicam, or saying dramatically that Brangelina will undertake any minute, or sputtering out one factor about “Shakira”. When paparazzi approached him at LAX, he only said that the journey was “improbable” and saying one factor about “each half Brad does is terrific.” Then Grandpa Voight muttered “I don’t want to talk about it rather a lot.” Rattling. Empress Zahara ought to have been like “Preserve your crazy in study, Gramps.” However, you probably can’t tamp down Voight’s need to discuss his fragile reunion collectively together with his daughter! He gave an distinctive interview to Us Weekly on Wednesday, and he carried out it out like a maestro:
They’re family! In an distinctive phone interview from Venice, Italy, Jon Voight raved to UsMagazine.com about his “trip” collectively along with his daughter Angelina Jolie, her companion Brad Pitt and their six kids.
“It’s good to have one factor that’s constructive!” Voight, 71, suggested Us of getting collectively Sunday in Venice collectively together with his once-estranged daughter. He says their boat expertise down the normal metropolis’s Grand Canal was “fairly…the local weather wasn’t so harmful for the journey. It’s a very pretty journey. A number of pleasing.”
And amongst his half-dozen grandkids, one blonde, blue-eyed magnificence stood out: “I’ve baby footage which is likely to be very resembling of Shiloh,” he well-known. “I don’t discover out about all the resemblances, nonetheless clearly there are some as a result of genes.” (Shiloh, three, is Jolie and Pitt’s first natural teen; her siblings are Maddox, eight, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 19 months.)
The actor wish to pay a repeat go to to Venice in the midst of the brood’s preserve there (Jolie, 34, is capturing The Vacationer). “I actually just like the potential of spending time with the family. It’s a very beautiful issue.”
Oh yeah: and Jolie and Pitt are doing prime quality, positive? “Exactly correct,” Voight assured Us, poo-pooing present reduce up rumors. “In actual fact they’re! You can see!”

I wasn’t optimistic in regards to the “little one footage” reference. Is he saying that when he was a baby, he appeared similar to Shiloh? Or is he talking about little one pictures of Angelina? I really feel he’s talking about his private little one footage. Which is weird, on account of I really feel Shiloh seems loads like Brad. Although Brad appears sort of like Jon Voight. So spherical we go…
E! Data moreover had an fascinating little behind-the-scenes check out what it took to get Angelina and Jon within the similar room collectively. The Voight stuff isn’t that fascinating, nonetheless there’s some cool stuff about James Haven, Angelina’s brother. I had been questioning what James was as a lot as just lately – it appears he’s born-again and studying to be a minister! Oh, James. I coronary coronary heart your crazy ass too!
Being companions with Brad Pitt optimistic does have its advantages. We merely on no account thought his mediation experience will be thought of one in all them. Nevertheless it appears the actor is bigger than solely a pretty-faced Basterd, and we have his powers of persuasion to thank for Brangelina’s most recent European journey photograph op, ultimate weekend’s reunion of Angelina Jolie and her beforehand estranged father, Jon Voight.
Between Pitt and Angelina’s brother, James Haven, the frosty relationship has thawed considerably. Proper right here’s how their Venetian meet-up went down:
Everyone (who follows some of these points) is conscious of that points first went south between father and daughter (and son) all through Jolie’s Tomb Raider days, when Billy Bob Thornton’s throat couldn’t appear on a purple carpet with out Jolie’s tongue firmly rammed down it.
A provide close to the actress tells E! Data that Papa Voight didn’t take too kindly to the PDAs, even writing a letter to his daughter telling her how “disgusting” her conduct was. The then made the media rounds suggesting his daughter wished an intervention. That moreover led to Haven to sever ties with Voight and align himself collectively along with his sister.
Finally, nonetheless, Voight tried to make amends, mailing Jolie a gold necklace as a peace offering—that she promptly returned to sender.
Then, roughly a yr previously, Haven turned a born-again Christian and commenced teaching as a minister, at which stage he effectively resumed and maintained contact collectively together with his father. Haven rapidly tried to get his sister to conform together with his lead by making good with their dad, though she routinely rebuffed his olive-branch advances.
Enter Pitt. The insider tells E! Info that Pitt thought Voight “deserved a second chance and so he stepped in.”
It apparently did the trick, as a result of it was Jolie who invited her father out to Venice ultimate week.
“The go to really went fairly properly, and Angie’s thrilled he obtained on somewhat effectively with all her children. She’s grown up tons, and forgiving Jon is a big step,” the availability says.
The well-photographed journey marked the first time Voight had met with all six of his grandchildren. And by no means a second too rapidly. We’ve got been beginning to fret he’d on no account meet Shakira Zahara.

If that’s one of the best ways it went down, good for them. I am questioning why James didn’t come for a go to too? He was most likely studying. I moreover marvel if Angelina actually did all of this “rebuffing” of all of Voight’s efforts. That’s pretty hardcore, to ship once more jewelry out of your dad. You’ll keep the jewelry and nonetheless not converse to your father, you already know, Angelina!
