Jon Voight Says Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt’s Children Are “Spectacular”

The Oscar-winning actor played the proud grandparent at the Hollywood premiere of comedy movie ‘Kick-Ass’ earlier this week, where he spoke lovingly about his six grandchildren who are raised by his actress daughter and her partner Brad Pitt.

He told "The grandkids are quite spectacular, as everybody knows."   The 71-year-old star reconciled with Angelina in February after several years estrangement and met with the couple and their children – adopted tots Maddox, eight, five-year-old Zahara and Pax, six, and three biological children, Shiloh, three, and 19-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne – in Venice, Italy.

Discussing the meeting, he added: "It’s nice to have something that’s positive!"   Although Angelina and Jon’s meeting came as a shock to many, the pair has been working on the reconciliation for a while.   At the time, Jon said: "Angie and I have been in contact on the phone and by email for some time now.

"We’ve been working towards a full reconciliation for a while. Angie had to feel it was the right time to bring me into the lives of her and the kids and after some work she decided the moment had arrived.   "I hope I get to see them again soon. I want to spend as much time with them as possible."

    All children need and love their grandparents as did I when they were with us. Jon, you will forever be glad you found a way to reconcile with Angelina for the good of everyone involved. Your daughter and grandchildren will have many fond memories of you in the upcoming years and after you are long gone. Congratulations on a job well done and a life well lived.

    I agree with Colin Cody. I am so happy for the family. I like and respect all of them. I was always troubled by the family issues that became public. Who cares what their thoughts were heretofore,I am so happy that they are reconciled. God or the spirit of the community bless them all.
