Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt wedding news traveled fast, but the Hollywood couple apparently kept the marriage so quiet that they didn't even tell Angelina Jolie’s father, Jon Voight. While typical marriages include a father walking a daughter to a groom, it appears that Jon Voight didn't even know the celebrities got married. According to US Weekly on Thursday, the elder actor found out doing a live interview by Inside Edition when the news broke.
There is no doubt that the surprise that Jon Voight had about the news was sincere, but his response sounded a little upset as well. The shock of hearing a daughter got married and there was no invite in the mail could have been tough for any father. However, the relationship between Jon Voight and Angelina Jolie has had plenty of public friction. It appeared over the years that there was a change of heart and the family was getting along.
It appears that Brad Pitt has tried his best to amend the relationship, for Pitt’s kid’s sake, but the years of mistrust might not be easily solvable. Family friction is never easy and add the public spotlight and it could be impossible.
The Angelia Jolie and Brad Pitt wedding did have family present. The website TMZ is reporting that it was attended by Brad Pitt’s entire immediate family. And all of the children of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt also were part of the ceremony. Jon Voight claims that he probably couldn't have attended the wedding anyway as it was the weekend of the Emmys. Which sounds sad, but it is far better than admitting he wasn't directly invited and the family issues still aren't resolved.
