Jon Voight was more surprised than anyone to hear that his daughter is getting married as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt didn’t tell him anything about their wedding plans, according to Us Weekly. Despite their estranged relationship, the “Deliverance” actor was glad to hear that his daughter was getting married.
Angelina Jolie and her father Jon Voight have recently overcome their past feuds, but that doesn’t seem to bring them back together as a father and daughter. In fact, the actor claims he had no idea that Jolie and Pitt were planning to get married. He found out the news from the media, just like everybody else.
Voight confessed that he was a little bit confused at first because the media has always speculated about a possible wedding and he didn’t’ know what to believe. It was only when he saw Angelina’s official declaration that he realized his daughter was truly getting married. He told reporters that it is wonderful that the seven-year-old couple has finally decided to tie the knot, especially since they have six children.
The 73-year-old actor said he has no idea how the wedding will be like because the 36-year-old actress did not reveal anything about the big day until now. Nevertheless, he recommended people not to listen to newspapers and magazines because they tend to “go their own way”.
It might seem that Voight and Jolie don’t get to see each other very often, but the actor stated the opposite. He confessed he has recently met his daughter and was amazed by the actress’ ability to be a devoted mom, a talented artist and a tireless humanitarian. In his opinion, Jolie is special because she is a person that has many passions and is capable of doing many things at the same time. The actor concluded that he likes to spend time with his daughter and her children because they are very fun to watch as they play games and have a great time together.
