Jon Voight Gushes About His Grandkids


jon voightThere’s not much that’s more adorable than a grandparent gushing about his or her grandkids, full of pride, joy, and adoring comments. Jon Voight is one such grandparent–the actor loves being grandpa to daughter Angelina Jolie and her partner, Brad Pitt’s kids.

“Shiloh, oy boy, she’s a smart one, but she’s four years old, you can never tell what she does, her face lights up,” the actor told reporters at Fox’s Fall Eco-Casino Party this week in L.A. The 71-year-old Best Actor Oscar winner (he won for Coming Home) has equally good feelings about all of Brangelina’s brood.

“They’re all smart,” Voight said. “Z’s smart, they’re all smart I’ll tell you. Maddox, Pax, Z…I gotta get all their names, because you can’t cheat and I’m not going to. Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne, they’re all very smart kids, beautiful too.” And he’s not all talk, no action. Voight actually tries to keep in touch with all the little ones via Skype when he can. How cute is that?
