According to reports, the reunion was all Brad’s idea!

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. That really is Angelina Jolie, 34, and her father Jon Voight, 71, together… in the same photo! The estranged father and daughter reunited Feb. 21 in Venice, Italy, where Angie is currently shooting The Tourist alongside Johnny Depp, 46. Along with Brad Pitt, 46, and the rest of the Brangelina brood, Angie and her dad went for a water taxi ride through the Venice Grand Canal. According to RadarOnline.com, the father-daughter reunion was orchestrated by Brad, who also reunited Jennifer Aniston with her estranged mother during their marriage.

Though Angelina and Jon were once close — they appeared together in Angie’s first movie, Lookin’ To Get Out, in 1982 — their relationship has since become strained. “My father and I don’t speak,” Angelina has said of her relationship with Jon. “I don’t hold any anger toward him. I don’t believe that somebody’s family becomes their blood, because my son’s adopted, and families are earned.”

It looks like that relationship is certainly improving! We’re happy to see the two of them working things out.

Also, speaking as a 30something who just lost her mother to cancer, I can tell you that after Angie’s mom died, she found herself wanting to reconnect with the only parent she had left. Losing one really changes you, makes you vulnerable. I am so pleased that Angie let her guard down and tried. It’s beautiful, and it shows growth.

Incorrect – Angie and Jon stopped talking after he made a comment to the press about about he though Angie was “mentally unbalanced” following her adoption of Maddox after having filed for divorce from Billy Bob just under a half year after. She was upset that his comments could have hurt her chances of making the adoption permanent, so she blocked him out. He went on E! News after that sobbing and apologizing during the interview for her to let him see his new grandson. She was having none of it. Then along came Brad – he wanted the same things at the same time Angie did, and she was already starting a family. It was kismet. Brad has always said he wanted a BIG family, and he is really close with his, so its really sweet he had a hand in facilitating the reunion.

Anybody remember the fact that these two were in Tomb Raider together? He played her father in the first one. That was at least around 8 years ago or so…my time might be off a bit…so i’m thinking they may have been talking a bit since then…

Reunions are all well and fine and sometimes promote healing if very sincere and PRIVATE conversations take place. Other times a child must separate from his/her parents to create a better, more psychologically healthy life for themselves. A child can not function as an emotional support system for their parents or be a parent of their parents. Parents need to look to their own marriages as the source of their own personal emotional support and not use their children as substitute spouses. Also be humble enough to accept that, as parents often do, they could’ve caused great emotional pain to their children while being completely ignorant to that fact. Children usually inherent the damage and suffering of their parents. For example, black people will need generations to crawl out from under the psychological damage of tyranny/slavery. Removing the knife does not heal the wound.

Please. Jen is not in touch with her mother. Why do you think she is trying to parade photo-ops with a disinterested Gerard as a “fake boyfriend”? lf she was really in contact with her mom, she would have been showing her off to make people think that she is better than Angie by having reconciled with her mom. That is how poor Jen rolls, but since she is bent on upping Angie, she might just drag her mom for a photo-op. By the way poor jen’s moves are very obvious & predictable, just ask Brangie fans & CNN.I’m just glad Gerard Butler has refused to play her PR games of pretending to be her boyfriend. How pathetic jen.

Coors, l think Bonnie was jobless when Angie made those comments. I think her stint at star was wearing out. Every Angie fan knows that she & Jon have been intouch privately for almost three years, but trust the rags to feige ignorance so that they can garner hits. l am so glad that there are photos to prove these bottom feeders wrong. So happy for Jon & Angie, family is very important & im glad Jon gets to enjoy the 6 precious gifts with Brad & Angie!

Actually Coors, Jen and her mom have been reunited since 2005 and are not only talking, but completely back in contact. Jen’s mom even attended her 40th birthday with Jen’s dad and brothers. I’m going to assume from your comments that emotionally abusive relationships between parents and children are not in your experience, but sadly they are for many people. Sometimes the only healthy path to take is to completely cut off contact. By all accounts (including her ex-husband’s) Jen is a very warm and loving person. So for her to have taken the extreme measure of distancing herself from her mother for so many years must have been a last resort and a very difficult decision. It’s not only a brave choice, but mature and emotionally responsible…as is moving through a reconciliation as they have been able to do.

As for Jolie and Voight – they’re the ones who are using their appearance for publicity given his recent discussions to the press and these pictures. Private is a word AJ does not possess in her vocabulary. I question the timing. Who knows what Voight’s motive is: could be he is grasping at any olive branch from AJ so that he can be a part of her and his grandchildren’s lives, or he could be as media hungry as his daughter. But I don’t question AJ’s motives: she is deflecting as always. Whenever something unsavory is reported regarding her or her family she drags out the kids or poses with refugees or announces a donation to her latest charity. Seems like lately she has been pulling out all of these tricks but the media and public is showing how tired they have become. So what is the media savvy PR hungry gal to do? Add a new angle by dragging along dear old dad to get people to start talking about a presumed reconciliation instead of her shady relationship, possible plastic surgery, or questionable parenting. I note that the Voight went pubic about the reconciliation in the aftermath of the break-up reports, and these pics are coming on the heels of a week of failed family pics PR tactics.

brad had nothing to do with jennifer reuniting with her mother it was after they divorced that jennifer reached out to her mother.

….And, of course, that ‘reaching out’ went nowhere cos theyre still not talking. Anustain only said that so she could garner more sympathy. Lets face it, a woman so mad at her mother that she refused to have her at her ONLY DAUGHTER’S WEDDING is a pretty cold beeatch, but thats our jennypoo for you.

BTW, bonnie dear heart. Angie mentioned from 2007 that she and her dad have been corresponding and would be keeping their lines of communication open – BUT THAT THEY WOULD KEEP THAT PROCESS PRIVATE. Thats why you and your other bottomfeeders never knew what was going on. So now you come with your usual made-up mess. Would you recognise the truth if it upped and slapped you in your ugly face, bonnie? Somehow i think not.
