Angelina Jolie’s father, Jon Voight, was reportedly not invited to his daughter’s much anticipated wedding held last week in France.
Speaking to TMZ, an entertainment channel, Voight said Friday he had found out about the wedding through a news website.
The wedding was held at the couple’s $60 million Chateau Miraval in the south of France and was so low-profile that the news broke days after the ceremony.
In response to whether he was upset for not being invited, the veteran actor said he was busy with the Emmy Awards any way in which he was nominated for prize for his role in TV series Ray Donovan.
However, speaking on Good Morning Britain earlier today, Voight’s remarks suggested that his absence from the ceremony may have been amicable.
“I'm very happy that I can legitimately call him my son-in-law, this wonderful fellow who I love,” he told the ITV show.
“You know what they are very happy. The kids must have had a wonderful time at the wedding, they all had their things to do and it must have been very beautiful so I'm very happy for them,” he said.
“She’s working now with Brad, and I've got a couple of things to do, but as soon as we can we'll get together and it's going to be exciting,” Voight added.
Voight and Jolie have had a turbulent relationship following the former’s remarks in 2001 that his daughter was suffering from “serious mental problems” and said that he wanted her to seek professional help.
In response, Jolie said she did not consider it healthy to be in her father’s company.
The two reconciled in 2011 following the expansion of Jolie’s family to include six children.
“I suddenly saw things differently and everything shifted,” Voight described the change in attitude that led to their reconciliation.
“That one moment changed my whole life. It gave me back my daughter and my family. Being reunited with my Angie is very precious to me. I adore my grandchildren, they are my great love. It makes me so emotional and grateful,” he said in 2011.
