Jon Voight Brags About His Grandchildren: "They're All Smart"

Angelina Jolie's father shares his proud feelings for his six adorable grandkids

Just like grandparents all over the world, Jon Voight loves to brag about his grandkids! The 71-year-old actor couldn't be more proud of daughter Angelina Jolie's six children, and he's opening up about his feelings.

"They're all smart," the Oscar winner told People.com at Fox's Fall Eco-Casino Party in L.A. "Shiloh, oh boy, she's a smart one, but she's four years old, you can never tell what she does, her face lights up." 

Voight -- who recently reconciled with Jolie after being estranged from her for years -- says he often keeps in touch with his family via Skype. Voight says he's trying to get the technological communication down, but sometimes there are glitches. "Maddox says 'okay' – he writes me back 'okay' and then I can't get it, but I've been away from my computer so I couldn't get back to him," Voight explains.

But the actor almost had a glitch himself when trying to remember all the kids' names! "I gotta get all their names, because you can't cheat and I'm not going to," he said. "Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne, they're all very smart kids, beautiful too." 

Voight is currently busy promoting his new television show Lone Star. (Though it got the stamp of approval from Jolie, the actor says his young grandkids probably won't "be that interested in it.") But the proud gramps says he's looking forward to seeing the Jolie and Brad Pitt's little ones in person soon. "What's better than that?" he asked.
