An­gelina makes peace with es­tranged fa­ther Jon Voight

Daily Express - - NEWS - By Sarah West­cott

AN­GELINA Jolie and her fa­ther Jon Voight ap­pear to have put the past be­hind them and are speak­ing to each other again.

The pair fell out nearly 10 years ago af­ter ac­tor Voight, now 78, ac­cused her of hav­ing “se­ri­ous men­tal prob­lems”.

But they met up in New York this week to cel­e­brate the pre­miere of her new film First They Killed My Fa­ther, about the geno­cide in Cam­bo­dia dur­ing the 1970s.

Wear­ing a strap­less and back­less Chris­tian Dior dress, An­gelina, 42, al­lowed fans a rare glimpse of her strik­ing tat­toos, which are usu­ally cov­ered with make-up when she is film­ing. The in­tri­cate de­signs on her back in­clude Bud­dhist prayers writ­ten in the Kh­mer script from Cam­bo­dia, where her adopted son Mad­dox, 16, was born.

The ge­o­graph­i­cal co­or­di­nates on her left arm rep­re­sent the places all six of her chil­dren first en­tered her life – plus the birth­place of her es­tranged hus­band Brad Pitt.

She and Voight, who looked to be in fine health and wore a clas­sic dark suit with a bright blue shirt, were joined at the event by Mad­dox and her other chil­dren, Pax, 13, Za­hara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivi­enne.
