And it resurrected his career. Marcheline wanted her to do it. News reports that Voight spilled the beans at a pre-Oscar party about how excited he was to be a grandfather and that the adoption was happening, which took the couple by surprise, because they hadn't wanted to announce the news until Cambodian and United States officials finalized the adoption.

The interview obviously struck a nerve with Jolie, who said in a statement, "I don't want to make public the reasons for my bad relationship with my father.

Family Feuds A year after the release of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider inthe pair were no longer on speaking terms. Consequently, the pair stopped speaking and their relationship was under strain, which resulted in very a long-term feud. It was during this feud that Angelina legally dropped her fathers name, Voight, from her name and is famously known only as Angelina Jolie.
Her brother followed suit, although neither of the siblings used this name during their careers. The feud lasted seven years between pair, where no communication occurred during this time between the duo.

It was actually Brad Pitt who got the pair back together after convincing his wife at the time that she should settle things with her father.

Impossible because he wanted to spend as much time with his mother who was suffering from cancer. He saw that by taking this role, he could take his mother with him to Prague where the movie was being filmed.
Following this, he continued to take roles in order to take his mother away with him. After a short hiatus from Hollywood, he stated that this made for his return back to films.

Although Voight had reconciled with his daughter by the time of her wedding with Brad Pitt, he was still not invited. It was claimed that Angelina Jolie did not want her father at her wedding as she was concerned for his behavior during the event.
Awkward Situation After many years of dating and having several children together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie officially tied the knot in However, even despite the reconciliation between Jolie and her father, Voight was not invited to take part in the nuptial celebrations. However, Voight only had kind words regarding the wedding: Good Samaritan As well as being a big time actor, Jon has been credited for his generosity outside of work.
When Jon was shooting a film is Louisville, he met a fan in the supermarket who was there to buy Thanksgiving turkeys for the children at the Home of the Innocents center.
When Voight asked the lady buying the turkeys who all the turkeys were all for, he offered to pay for all the turkeys when discovering it was for the children. He accused her actions of signing a petition to be anti-Semitic, and this led to a public apology by the actress claiming she misunderstood what the petition was about. He graduated with a B.
He guest starred in an episode of Naked City and two episodes of The Defenders in that year. However, it was in when Voight starred as Joe Buck in the casting of Midnight Cowboy, that his career really took off.
