“Angelina Jolie’s Wedding Guest List Excludes Her Father: Here’s Why”

It was reported that Jon Voight, Angelina Jolie’s father and a well-known actor, was not invited to his daughter and Brad Pitt’s wedding. This news came as a surprise to Voight, who found out about the event on television. The couple’s secret wedding on August 29, 2014, was a delightful shock to fans and media alike, especially after a photo of Pitt wearing a wedding band surfaced.

The recent announcement of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s wedding has been making headlines in the media. The superstars tied the knot on August 23 at their home in France, surrounded by family members. However, it came to light that Angelina’s father, actor Jon Voight, was not invited to the wedding and only found out about it via television. During an interview with CBS’s Inside Edition on the morning of August 28, just a few hours after Brangelina’s representative confirmed the wedding to the Associated Press, Jon Voight was taken aback when asked about his daughter’s nuptials.

The actor who won an Oscar expressed his surprise at learning that his daughter had married Pitt. When asked for his opinion, Voight simply replied, “This is very good.” He later shared with Us Weekly that the wedding seemed joyful and fun, which made him happy for his family. However, he admitted that he had not yet spoken to his daughter directly and was unaware of her wedding plans. Due to the Emmy awards ceremony taking place at the same time, Voight was unable to attend the wedding. In a traditional wedding, the father accompanies his daughter to the altar, but in this case, Jolie’s sons Maddox and Pax Thien filled in for Voight. The relationship between Voight and Jolie has been strained in the past, as evidenced by their frequent public disagreements.

Due to her father’s infidelity towards her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, and abandonment of Jolie at a young age, she developed a dislike for him. In 2002, she sought to legally remove Voight from her name and be recognized solely as Angelina Jolie. However, Voight later made a public statement claiming that his child suffered from severe mental issues, prompting Jolie to issue a response stating her desire to sever ties with her father permanently.

Following the passing of Ms. Bertrand from cancer in 2007, the relationship between father and daughter improved. Recently, Voight had positive words to say about his niece, Vivienne, who acted alongside Jolie in the film “Maleficent” earlier this year. He described her as amazing and reminiscent of Jolie’s past performances. It is important to note that Jolie kept other significant events hidden from her father besides her wedding.

Last year, Angelina Jolie kept her decision to undergo breast removal surgery a secret from her father, Jon Voight, in order to reduce the risk of cancer. The news was only revealed to Voight after Jolie wrote an open letter to the New York Times. Despite this, Voight was still deeply moved when asked about his daughter and expressed his love and admiration for her. He praised her bravery and openness in sharing her story with the world, calling her an extraordinary person. This information was originally reported by VietnamPlus.
