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.
