When Jon Voight stopped by The Morning Show With Mike and Juliet on Friday, the Oscar-winner appeared to be in good spirits. There to promote his new movie, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Jon almost got away with not talking about his very famous and very estranged daughter, Angelina Jolie.
When she was mentioned, the actor’s mood went from very jovial to being on the verge of tears. "No, I can’t talk about it really," he lamented. "But I send my love to my daughter and son, the family always. I wish them the best."
Then instead of changing topics right away, Jon then did exactly what he said he couldn’t do — talk about Angie. "I’m very impressed with Angelina’s work, with some of the humanitarian things," he explained. "And she’s a great actress."
"I’m always thinking of Brad [Pitt] and the kids. I’m sending my love that way."
And then Jon attempted to lighten the mood, veering away from the subject at hand. "This is a very down note… Merry Christmas, everybody!"
