Angelina Jolie is hard at work on the Paris set of The Tourist, her new film with Johnny Depp, but the glow of her reconciliation with father Jon Voight shines on. Though his tendency to babble to the media is what got him exiled in the first place, the elder Oscar winner couldn’t help but tell Radar how happy he is after meeting up with Brangelina and the kids in Venice. “I’ve been waiting so long to hug my grandchildren and it was amazing, they are the most beautiful, loving kids you could imagine and I’m not just saying that because I’m their grandfather, they really are something special. Angelina and Brad are so happy together and they are the most amazing, loving parents I’ve ever seen. It truly moved me to see how Angie is as a mom, I am so proud of her—she has so much love to give and to share with the children and with Brad.”
This effusive praise is a far cry from when he accused Jolie of “serious mental problems” in 2002. “We’ve been working towards a full reconciliation for a while,” he admitted. “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.” How long before he starts wearing a “MADDOX’S AND SHILOH’S AND PAX’S AND ZAHARA’S AND KNOX’S AND VIVIENNE’S GRANDPA” t-shirt?
