Jon Voight's Comments About Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt's Wedding Are Telling

Angelina Jolie, Brad PittYou know how Angelina Jolie has had an on again, off again relationship with her father Jon Voight over the years? Well it seems that they are very seriously on the outs these days, as he wasn't even invited to her very intimate wedding ceremony with Brad Pitt in France last weekend.

Dang, I know a lot of brides these days question whether or not to let their dads walk them down the aisle, but to not even have him in attendance? It seems pretty harsh, Angie. And to top it off? Voight didn't even know about the nuptials until the news broke to the rest of the world.

The 75-year-old Oscar winner was being interviewed by Inside Edition on Thursday morning when the news broke that Brangelina had finally tied the knot after nearly a decade and six kids together.

Voight was asked about the wedding several hours after the newlyweds' spokesperson confirmed the news, and he admitted that he had no idea they'd gotten hitched. When asked for a comment, he quipped, "That's nice."

Whoa. That's more than a little sharp, don't you think? On the other hand, he did just find out that he hadn't been invited to his daughter's wedding. That sort of thing does have to sting just a bit.

Later during the day, Voight told Us Weekly, "It seems like it was very nice -- and with all of the kids involved, it must have been a lot of fun and very beautiful. I'm happy for them."

Classy! None of us really know exactly what happened between Angelina and her dad to cause their on-and-off estrangement, but it's sort of nice that we don't. He's been very vocal publicly about his support for her, even when he's been kept in the dark about things like her wedding or her preventative double mastectomy in 2013. In turn, she hasn't come out swinging on why he hasn't been a part of her life.

Because no matter what went down, it's obvious there's a huge pile of dirty laundry there. It's nice that neither of them has felt the need to air it.

Why do you think Angelina didn't invite her dad to her wedding?

I think we do know, at least the beginning of it. When your dad goes on a nationally syndicated TV show and tells the world that his daughter is mentally ill and she needs help, that would be enough to make me stop speaking to him. That was a private family matter and should not have been on Entertainment Tonight.

she was a hard core drug addict - once an addict always an addict - doesn't that count as mental illness?

And I don't see her winning an Oscar anytime soon.

Drug addiction does NOT correlate to mental instability you uneducated embicile. Furthermore, she's LONG been drug free since even before her 1st adoption which is well over 12 years. & what does her not winning anymore Oscars have to do with why she chose not to include her deranged father? She's ALREADY won one & definitely has the moxie & talent to win another. How quickly you forget how he beraided her in the media & made several phony public pleas all for his own need for attention..... He's done many pig-headed things since then as well. He's even criticized her for not having the same political views as he does. He's twisted & although he may be a fine actor, he's not a very good Dad. I, for one, don't blame her AT ALL. She & Beyonce are in the same boat: Dads who love & crave the spotlight more than they care about their children. They need to learn to STFU & stop making up stories to share with the gullible masses so eager to believe anything negative about them.

I totally agree with @Jadancer

Woah Jdancer try to take a deep breath. Substance abuse and addictive disorders are actually listed in the DSM-5... That's the current edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. So yes addiction is considered a mental disorder and a lot of addicts have other mental health issues as well. Not sure all the details of what's happened between the two of them but I think it's sad that she's been so cold towards him. Parents are just people they make mistakes too and it doesn't seem like he's done anything to deserve to be totally shut out.

I've met Voight before and he seems very down to earth and humble. Now...Angelina, she seems a bit bipolar to me. Her public persona has improved over the years, but I recall her being pretty wild and somewhat unstable in years past.

I still agree with @Jdancer. Angie has grown up to be a lovely woman with an awesome family.She is a saint and she did not get it from her father. Look at these kids today ie:

Miley C, Justin B, Jenner girls hoping they will turn out better has they get older Angie has.

My mother has done a lot of things too me and I do not talk too her and I do not regret it at all. I admire Angie.

Just because you are related to someone does not mean you have to either like them or associate with them.

I feel sorry for him as a parent...out must be hard to be proud of your mentally ill , brother-kissing (ahem and who knows what else), blood drinking, home wrecking daughter. We'll find out more when those poor kids, bought like sheep, finally can write a tell all book on the crazy life with brangelina....and jdancer - now we all know you have some serious issues with YOUR parent(s)...stop projecting them on fake fake fake people
