Angelina Jolie Gives Dad Flicker of Hope

Don't you feel like every time you see Angelina Jolie's dad, Jon Voight, on a red carpet he's all welled up with tears, sending a message out to her or the kids? Angie and her father have been estranged since 2002, when Jon made comments to Access Hollywood suggesting that perhaps his daughter was a bit unstable. Angelina shut out her dad and also claimed he cheated on her late, beloved mom, Marcheline Bertrand.

But now, it seems, that Angie is thawing a little towards Jon. The actress told the UK's Evening Standard, "I am hoping my relationship with my father will be more private in the future. At the end of the day we both wish the best for each other and we'll try to start communicating in some way."

I hope she means it. I always feel bad for the guy. Half the time I don't think he knows what he's saying and Maddox, Z, Pax and Shiloh deserve to, at least, meet their grandpa. I mean, who else is going to give them a Werther's Original?
