Dad: Angelina 'Looks Very Happy'
Jon Voight comments on pregnant Jolie's recent Cannes appearance
Back on speaking terms with his daughter, Jon Voight has also been keeping an eye on Angelina Jolie.
“She looks very happy now,” Voight, 69, told PEOPLE Thursday night. And “very heavy!” he added when asked what he thought of Jolie’s pregnant pictures from the Cannes Film Festival. “She looks like she’s having a couple of babies.”
Jolie appeared with partner Brad Pitt, promoting her movies Kung Fu Panda and Changeling and looking radiant.
Jolie, 32, revealed in a recent interview with The Sydney Morning Herald that she and Voight have started to mend their longstanding rift.
“We are going to try to get to know each other and maybe try not to be this daddy and daughter, but to be there for each other as friends in the coming years,” she said.
When asked if he and Jolie will speak this summer, Voight said, “I’m sure we will, yeah.”
Voight spoke at a DVD release event for Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry film franchise, in West Hollywood. Eastwood directs Jolie in his next movie, Changeling.
“She’s a great performer,” Eastwood told PEOPLE of Jolie. “Unfortunately because of the media flurry that’s around her, sometimes people take her for granted. But she’s a fabulous talent.”
