Veteran actor Jon Voight hopes “things will work out” for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
The 41-year-old actress filed for divorce from Pitt, the father of her kids Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, in September but her father Voight is hopeful that things will improve.
“I appreciate everybody`s concern and their prayers. Hopefully things will work out,” he said.
Speaking previously, Voight was shocked by the couple`s split, but felt something “serious” must have happened for his daughter to take steps to end her 12-year relationship.
“It`s very sad. Something very serious must have happened for Angie to make a decision like this. I don`t know what it is. It`s a sad thing. Say a little prayer. I am concerned for Angie and the children and hopefully I will be seeing them very soon,” he said.
After Voight left Jolie`s mother Marcheline Bertrand for a young drama student, Bertrand had barred him from seeing the children, and to this day Jolie is said to have a strained relationship with the actor.
