Angelina's Dad Says They're 'in Touch'

Fame can strain any relationship, but when two (or more) family members become famous, it seems to make the tension exponentially stronger. But famous father-daughter pair appears to be repairing the damage.

According to Us Weekly, Angelina Jolie and her father, actor Jon Voight, may have mended fences. Sort of.

"We're in touch, but not regularly," Voight said. "We love each other and that's the most important thing."

The two actors have been in the throes of personal drama ever since Voight said, tearfully, on national television that he wished Angelina would get help for her "serious mental problems."

A source told the magazine that it was Angie who made the first conciliatory gesture back in February, and that it was at the urging of Brad Pitt.

Other famously strained celebrity family relationships include: Drew Barrymore and her mother, Jaid; Madonna and her brother, Christopher Ciccone; Liza Minnelli and her mother, Judy Garland; and Angelina's quasi-nemesis Jennifer Aniston recently settled a longtime rift with her mother, Nancy Dow.

The source of such familial problems varies from differences in political views (i.e., Jon Voight and Angelina Jolie), to parenting issues (i.e., substance-abusing Jaid Barrymore), to competitive careerists (i.e., Judy Garland), to tell-all-book betrayals (i.e., Jennifer Aniston and Madonna).
