Jon Voight is dishing a few of the details of his recent vacation in Venice, Italy with his estranged daughter Angelina Jolie and her big brood.
“It’s nice to have something that’s positive!” the 71-year-old actor tells US of his Italian vacation, where he was spotted joining the Lara Croft star, her partner Brad Pitt and their kids on a boat ride down the Grand Canal. “It’s a very beautiful trip. A lot of fun.”
Jon was thrilled to spend some time getting to know his six grandchildren – Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, Shiloh, 3 1/2, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 1 1/2.
“I have baby pictures that are very resembling of Shiloh,” he says of Brad and Angie’s adorable daughter. “I don’t know about all the resemblances, but obviously there are some because of the genes.”
He was also quick to dismiss the rumors that there is trouble brewing between the couple, saying that they are doing just fine.
“Exactly right. Of course they are! You can see!” he insists.
Jon hopes that last week’s happy reunion will continue: “I love the possibility of spending time with the family. It’s a very beautiful thing.”
Angelina and her famous father have not been on the best of terms since 2001 when he declared on national television that she had “serious mental problems.”
