It’s no secret that the father-daughter relationship has been rocky in the past, but the two reconciled a few years back. Voight was being interviewed on the CBS show “Inside Edition” when news came over the wire that the Jolie-Pitt wedding was announced.
When asked about this Voight said he had no idea the two were having their wedding last Saturday in France, reports the New York Post. When asked if he had a comment, the surprised and probably hurt and embarrassed father said, “That’s nice,” reports MSN.
No one but Angelina Jolie knows what went on between her and her father to render the relationship strained. That said, it is still confusing when this woman who has a heart as big as the entire outdoors would deliberately leave her dad out of something so important.
Voight, who has done nothing but praise his daughter and talk about his love for her and his grandchildren while in public, is apparently still not part of his daughter’s inner circle. When Jolie underwent her preventative double mastectomy last year, he was left unaware of this and found out by reading the op-ed she penned in the New York Times like the rest of the world.
While all the hoopla has played out in the media regarding the Jolie-Pitt secret nuptials, Voight was in LA attending the events around the Emmys representing the hit show “Ray Donovan.” The show is a Showtime powerhouse where ironically he plays the estranged father of the star of the show.
