Struck by an emotional epiphany, Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie's father - Jon Voight - has reportedly resolved his problems with his daughter, ending a feud that has lasted for nearly a decade. The veteran actor said that a sudden emotional realization led him to reconcile.
I suddenly saw things differently and everything shifted. That one moment changed my whole life, said the 72-year-old actor, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
The two apparently had a falling out in 2002, when Jolie condemned her father for having an affair behind her mother's back, while Voight accused his daughter of having serious mental problems.
Voight reportedly also said that he was delighted to get his family back and has grown fond of his grandchildren.
I adore my grandchildren, they are my great love. It makes me so emotional and grateful. I'm always laughing and completely happy when I'm with them. It makes Angie so happy too. Being reunited with my Angie is very precious to me, the actor added.
