Jon Voight: I'm Happy For Angelina Jolie's Twins

Angelina Jolie‘s actor father, Jon Voight, has been busy shooting the upcoming season of the hit FOX drama, 24.

But The Insider caught up with the 69-year-old actor on his film break to ask about his two new grandchildren, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline.

Voight said, “I am deeply happy. I’m over the moon. It’s magnificent. In this world, all we can hope for is that mommy and the kids are healthy. I’m very excited and thanks for letting me send my love to them. If I were called today, I’d be there.”

    Poor man. Shut out by a selfish cry baby who won’t let anything drop for the sake of family.

  • sexiimaama

    Why wasn’t he there for the birth? :[ But it’s good to know he’s so excited!

  • LuckyL

    Ew, I may or may not post in this thread.

  • Tijen

    Angie may still forgive him.

  • LuckyL

    Lol @ him wanting to experience all his children’s highs, while smearing them in their pitfalls and forgetting about them when they were in need.

  • Jill

    Jared, good lord, you are spoiling us rotten today. Thanks for the new thread.

    And sosooryjohn, you need to take a chill pill. Before you rag on Angelina for not seeing her father, you’d better tell Jenzilla to call her mother for the first time in five or six years, and stop referring to the woman as a “disease”.

  • CLINIQUA

    That’s what I said luckyL, I’m still debating..Voight sounds like he’s falling back on his media drama king ways…it’s bordering on pleading…he was in teh habit of playing poor pitiful me for a while, Angie has started opening the lines of communication, but if he pushes too hard too soon, he could scare her off. He needs to cool his damn jets. Geez, AJ wasn’t kidding when she said he was a drama queen. Can you imagine the waterworks he’ll let loose when he finally does see AJ, Brad and the kids. AJ will want the floor to open up I’m sure. LOLOL

  • Omg girl!

    What he has done to angelina?
    she doesn’t speak with him?

  • sosooryjohn

    GOTCHA AGAIN JILL…..ha!

  • Jill

    LuckyL @ 07/13/2008 at 7:51 pm

    Lucky, I’m kind of hoping she’ll forgive him and let him visit his grandchildren. Grandparents have a very special place in a child’s life. But that’s her decision. Neither of us knows what went bad between those two. He seems to have sort of made up with James, though, so maybe he will come to some kind of understanding with Angelina.

  • giselle

    congratulatioon you are the bets mother four you kids and you brat you are so sexy father

  • MMM :]

  • whatashame

    If it weren’t for John joLIE would NOT have a careeer. that is her first love and her biggest priority so she needs to back up a few steps and be thankful to her father rather than bad mouth him for trying to help her when she was crackers and wouldn’t get help.

  • please

    PLEASE ALL JOLIE PII’S FANS CAN RETURN TO ANGIE’S THREAD. ANGIE WILL GET IN TOUCH WITH HER DAD, THERE IS COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THEM AND JAMES WHO ALREADY WENT TO FRANCE. PLEASE DON’T START ANY UNNECESSARY DRAMA.

    And why do all the Hagistons and Haters forget about JenJen reducing her mother to vermin/ a mongrel/ worse than dirt, when Angelina merely said she felt it best years ago she have space because it wasn’t healthy?

    I hope they can reconcile. Life is too short. “Yesterday is gone for good forever while tomorow is a guess. What is real is what is here and now and here and now is all that we possess”.

  • waitwHAT

    Yet ANOTHER lie by her….she told vanity fair she was talking to her dad and making amends, this man has CLEARLY not heard from her at all. She needs to buck up when that cecerean heals up and get some serious counseling.

  • please

    THIS IS NOT ANGIE’S THREAD. JOLIE PITTS FANS, GO BACK TO ANGIE’S THREAD.

  • Hold on

    Hold on John she’ll be calling you.She said she’ll take things slow with you,be patient.All Angelina fans respect that she’s giving your relationship a chance.

  • please

    HE WILL GET A CALL, EVERYONE IS JUST LEARNING ABOUT THE BIRTH. STOP THE DRAMA. ALSO ANGIE SAID THEY ARE WORKING ON A RELATIONSHIP WHERE THINGS ARE GOING TO BE PERSONAL AND NOT PUBLIC. BACK OFF EVERYONE.

    True. Unfortunately, I only had one grandmother in my life, as all my other grandparents passed before I was born. I would have liked to have had that. However, I think the only reason Angelina was more affected because she is more of a public figure than James and he publicly smeared her shamelessly. Also, women need their fathers in their own special way.
    Plus, her family isn’t the typical family in the least, as then we should all be trying to call forth all the adopted children’s extended relatives in the assumption they’ll be some kind of “scarring.” I’m glad Brad’s family has been so kind and the grandparents are there on that side.
    My cousins–a sister and brother–had a similar situation with my uncle and unfortunately, my guy cousin was affected to the point of now having mental problems and luckily, since his sister was I guess, quote “emotionally stronger” she fought to get the things a father should provide to his daughter/ child. She has a much better relationship with him than my guy cousin is just beginning to attain. Plus, Angelina has always said how sensitive she is.

    Obviously all the haters or loons are speaking as if it’s all so simple/ have no idea how these situations are/ just want to spew their acerbic hatred as usually.

    Voight didn’t say she wasn’t talking to him, dumbass. All he said was he’s waiting for an invite to see them. They’ll probably call him sooner or later. But when is up to them

  • please

    RESPECT ANGIE’S PRIVACY, SHE SAID SHE WANTS THEM TO MAKE THEIR RELATIONSHIP WORK PRIVATELY.

  • http://http LUV ANGIE

    Wouldn’t trust him! He disappointed his own child more than once!
    He’s a great actor, an Oscar winner, a HW royalty, but he’s not worth
    anyone’s broken heart!

    I remember when her beloved mom was alive and defended Angie in public from him and his
    LOOKING FOR ATTENTION ON NATIONAL TV.

    CONGRATS TO ANGIE, VIVIENNE, KNOX, BP, MADD, SHI,
    Z, PAX, JAMES, the PITTS, and all the family!

    THIS IS WONDERFUL!

    She is all about her “family” (Brad, sons, daughters) but can’t even forgive her father and let him back in her life.

    But congrats to her on the birth of her twins!

    Jon is missing a screw. Why did he have to add the last bit. Angie having her babies isn’t about him.

  • LuckyL

    FOUR*

  • waitwHAT

    Love the focus on everything BUT the worhship. bwahahahahahaha whoever came up with this plan is a GENIOUS.

  • lsam

    I am sure eventually Jon V. will see his grandchildren, PRIVATELY when Angie and Brad are ready WITHOUT THE PAPS. Angie had mentioned in her interview that they are communicating “in private.” She just does not want “drama” in the public eye which is her right. Give her time to recuperate.

  • sonia

    sonia @ 07/13/2008 at 8:05 pm right now it must suck to be a fan of JA, but lying about her being beautiful and classy has got to stop, you mean no# 1 bed hopper for the last couple years, posing with her azz up in the air for attention, chasing a much younger man around the world like a 40 yr. old groupie, and trying to sell water, of all things to people, what’s next? selling the public air ? let jen have her ******, after all, she has nothing else, 2 years from now she won’t even have that, can someone find and post that ugly picture of their idol please? , much appreciation. good luck to this wonderful family, thanks jj, brad and Angie have the best fans in the world, so happy to be a part of this.

    Sam @ 07/13/2008 at 8:11 pm

    Trying to take the high road now, Sambo? Jeez Louise, what is it with you? First you verbally cráp all over her and the babies and now you’re congratulating her for having them. Which is it?

    Anyway, if you’ve decided to stop being such a shít, it was a nice gesture on your part.

  • Frenchy

    Um ok Jon.

    Funny I have been looking out for media reaction to this story and I must say it’s been quite restrained. There was a series of high progile people who passed within 72 hours and some time was devoted to them. They did mention the births on the NY local news and everyone was like, that’s nice. LOL. CNN had the news on their news scroll. One thing I wanted to mention. On our local CBS news affiliated, the weekend weatherperson was so giddy about the news. She did the weather right after they gave the news. before she started, she mentioned that she “knows everything about “Brangelina” and she “informed” the anchor people that Brad & Angelina thought they were having two girls so it was quite the surprise. I wanted to scream STFU! You don’t know A THING! it was the tabloids who mentioned the girls. If she knew everything about Brangelina as she thinks she knows, she would know that at the Kung Fu Panda interview in Cannes, Angelina said that they didn’t know the sexes of the baby.

    That Mayor in Nice is beyond ridiculous. Just make a statement or write a statement and then disappear.

  • wait

    Jon Voight is Angelina Jolie’s father? You would never know. It’s like they are not even related.

  • trish.

    you ppl cant talk cos u dnt know whats goin on w. them i just wish em the best. for both of em.

  • waitwHAT

    Jilly baby, ignoring the facts does NOT change them. Typing in all caps also does NOT change them. Sorry. hon. Glad to distract you from your worship though.

  • indiesr

    I do agree with Angie keeping her father at bay, he talks alot and say things to the press without thinking, and that makes it difficult for Angie to have him around…there are just some things that needs to be personal and Jon doesnt realize that.

  • what kinda dad ?

    He needs a call, a permission to congratulate his daughter ? He cannot pick a phone on his own will, call his daughter or son or send flowers and a card ?

    Wath kind of dad needs a call or a permission to send his best wishes to his daughter when in hospital ?

    What kind of man can wait and be busy without taking news PESONNALY about his daughter stuck in an hospital for DAYS ?

    What kind of man could let both of his children alone with Brad dealing over the last terrible time with Marcheline in agony ?

    What kind of dad, can let his son burst into tears in the arms of another (Brad) who is there to console him in the absence of his father ? As if a father needed a permission to be there at this particuliar time when both his children where in agony crying over the loss of their mum…he didn’t even give a phone call !

    That’s just a b*stard of man who doesn’t deserve to be call a dad !

  • BETSY SMITH

    SADLY JON VOIGHT HAS TO BE HARASSED BY PAT O’BRIEN ABOUT

    Hopefully the babies will have Angie’s AMAZING features,
    especially EYES.

    Honestly, her EYES, both in shape and color, are MAGICAL.
    Many think they are the best on her. Not “everyone” has that!
    Or the lips, the nose!

    Pitt has horrible nose and jaw. His eyes are beady and in the
    color half of the white people has – INCLUDING ME.

    But, I always wanted GREEN eyes, it’s RARE.

    I can imagine her son with a pair of MAGICAL GREEN EYES -
    EXACTLY LIKE MOMMY’s (and nobody else’s!)

    Of course he must be very happy, but it was not necesary to talk to the media….
