Gets Ready to Mark a Mile­stone

Closer Weekly - - News Now -

As he pre­pares to turn 80 in De­cem­ber, Jon Voight is shar­ing what he’s learned about the im­por­tance of fam­ily — both real and fic­tional. “I deeply ap­pre­ci­ate his enor­mous tal­ent,” Jon raved of Liev Schreiber, who plays his son on Ray Dono­van, at the Tribeca TV Fes­ti­val. “The only thing more sat­is­fy­ing than work­ing with Liev would be work­ing with my daugh­ter.” After years of es­trange­ment, Jon has made peace with his daugh­ter, An­gelina Jolie, and cher­ishes the time he spends with her six kids. “I’m a very lov­ing grandpa,” he tells Closer. “I am en­ter­tained by the chil­dren. I love them, and I’d do any­thing for them, of course. And they know it.” He’s happy to pass along his wis­dom: “Grand­fa­thers give grand­chil­dren some­thing they can’t get any­where else. Any­one who gets to be 80 has gone through a lot!”

“There are many life lessons. We should re­spect age.” — Jon, to Closer
