Jon Voight defends Shiloh’s Montenegro style: “She’s incredible”


Y’all can just pack it up, because Passive-Aggressive Crazy has chimed in. Jon Voight gave an “exclusive” interview to Us Weekly about the tabloid topic of the year, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt dressing like a boy. Now, since Angelina publicly allowed her father back into her life and the lives of the kids, Jon hasn’t been able to shut up. He’s been giving “exclusive” interviews all over the place, so the only thing surprising about this is that Us Weekly seems to be the first to ask Jon about Shiloh’s Montenegro Style. To his credit, Jon doesn’t throw Angelina under the bus, and he basically reiterates what Angelina has said – that Shiloh is her own person, making her own style choices, and she chooses to dress like a Euro hipster.

Seems everyone has something to say about 4-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s style. What does grandpa Jon Voight think?

“Shiloh’s an amazing person,” he told Sunday at a gala honoring film producer Avi Arad in Los Angeles. “I look at the way she dresses and she has a style! And she’s only 4-years old! I’m going, ‘What!?'”

Echoing previous remarks made by Angelina Jolie, Voight, 71, told Us, “Shiloh chooses everything she wears, so she’s an amazing person. The press, they’re going to make a lot of stuff about it, but she’s incredible.”

Jolie recently described Shiloh as having “Montenegro style” — a phrase that baffled many fashion experts — because she prefers to wear “tracksuits.” “Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet,” she said. “….Goofy and verbal, the early signs of a performer.”

Jolie, 35, recently scoffed at reports that she chooses Shiloh’s clothes for her.

“I think she is fascinating,” she told Reuters, “the choices she is making.”

Good for him. I guess Jon really could have made it worse, but he defended his granddaughter from the plague of douchey tabloid stories. Once again, I’m not sure why it matters how a four-year-old dresses, but people are still up in arms about it, and apparently, the whole situation is completely Angelina’s fault. Whatever.

    This is just a lame ass controversy and it says more about the people who are devastated that Shiloh won’t wear a dress then it does about Angie, Brad, or Shiloh. Not all girls like pink and ribbons can everyone just let it go.

  2. Snarf says:

    He forgot to add “Bonnie Fuller can suck it”.

  3. Praise St. Angie! says:

    thanks for including that picture of Shiloh in the monkey hat, it’s one of my favorites.

    she’s adorable, but Voight needs to just SHUT UP about his grandchildren. I realized he was asked about it, but he can very easily say “I don’t want to talk about my grandchildren”.

  4. The Hamm is My Dream Man says:

    Jon Voight needs to just be quiet. He’s trying to get attention and cash in on his daughter’s Rainbow Tribe.

    If they are supposedly so private and want to be left alone, they all three need to stop talking constantly about their children/grandchildren to the press.

    Talk about your children/grandchildren with your family and your friends.

  5. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Its like the lamest sh*t ever. You would think grown ups have better things to discuss but nope. A child’s fashion sense just has to be dissected. Ugh. Even if she wasn’t the daughter of famous people how on earth does someone over the age of 2 find this remotely interesting, what kinda life do you lead that a 4 years old clothes are in need of being analyzed. Gross.

  6. MuñekitA says:

    Is it relevant the way than a 4th year old girl dress?

    Just please let her be and stop talking about silly things like this!

    She’s just a kid!!!

  7. Me1st says:

    who the eff cares what she wears, she is not a fashion designer in the big house of fashion, she’s freakin 4…come on, is this really a story again???

  8. Captaine says:

    Voight is just another extreme right wing nutjob.

  9. Kim says:

    Yeah Brooke Sheilds, Jlo , Nicole Kidman,Courtney Cox on (Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel),,Gwen Stefani, Katherine Heigle, Madonna… all celeb moms who went on talk shows and did print interviews in the last week need to stop talking about their kids, too. Right, Hamm is my Dream Man

  10. Whatever says:

    I’m sure he was asked about it at the event and good for him for defending her. I bet there are cranky people who look at my youngest daughter and her off the wall combinations and style choices, but I couldn’t care less what they think. We have a firm No Prostitot rule, but other than that, they are free to make their own choices. They’ll figure it all out with time and practice.

    This story needs to die!

  11. Cheyenne says:

    @Praise: maybe he does want to talk about his grandchildren. One thing all grandparents love to brag about is their granchildren. Believe me, I know from experience. 🙂

  12. we don’t have to agree with the way the child dresses but at the end of the day we need to remember that she is just a child, let’s leave this topic alone.

  13. Anti-icon says:

    OK this is good. Finally seeing some positive support in their oh-so-weird family dynamic. Maybe JV has finally figured out how to be a grandpa—or AJ has finally media trained her father. Either way, Shiloh rocks!

  14. lucy2 says:

    I think it’s ridiculous that the tabloids continue to write stories about how a 4 year old dresses. And I think the adults in the family should not continue to engage in this particular discussion and keep it going. If it were me, I’d say “Seriously? The kid is 4, who cares what she wears, stop asking me about it, and let the kids have their privacy.”

    @Kim – as I said last time there was a story about this, I think those celeb kids face a much lesser degree of tabloid scrutiny than the JP kids (and Suri Cruise) do. No one is putting front cover stories up about Gwen’s kid’s clothing every week, or saying that Courteney is messing with her daughter’s head by not letting her wear dresses. It’s kind of apples & oranges, IMO.

  15. Maddie says:

    Every time I see that picture of Shiloh it makes me smile because it so child like and adorable.

  16. The Hamm is My Dream Man says:

    Kim: yes, i agree. They should. I think it’s bizarre when ANY celebrity (not just this clan of chuckleheads) talks about their children and personal business in the media and then claim that they don’t like or don’t want the attention. It’s silly, hypocritical and transparent.

    I didn’t talk about the other people because 1. they weren’t featured on this site talking about their children and 2. this story isn’t about any of them.

  17. Kitten says:

    How freakin’ cute is she in the monkey hat?? She is just adorable.

  18. Kim says:

    Hamme,Please provide the link to interview where Brad or Angie say they don’t want or like the attn. I missed that interview. In the interviews I ‘ve read they say the media goes with the territory and they prefer the paps use long lenses w/ the kids. Brad has talked about explaining to his kids why the paps are there and also using the media spotlight to bring attention to causes.But thanks in advance for letting me know the interviews you have seen/read where Brad or Angie complain about the media attn.

  19. Cruisin Through says:

    I think Voight has gotten a bad rap through all of this. Let’s face it, Angelina was cause for concern and he’s her Dad. He may not be perfect as no parent is, but I think his concern was legitimate. Just because you’re a fan of Angelina’s doesn’t mean he’s always the bad guy. The important thing is they reconciled. No need to keep bashing the guy.

  20. Moreaces says:

    I love the monkey hat picture, too adorable

  21. Tazina says:

    It’s these sites that keep bringing up Shiloh’s clothing choices too so they are partially to blame. We wouldn’t give it a second thought if we weren’t reminded about it almost on a daily basis.

    If Jon is asked a direct question he probably feels he has to answer. I don’t think it’s so bad. He always says lovely, supportive things about his grandchildren. I think he’s just so happy to be back in all their lives (including his son’s) again.

  22. Moreaces says:

    @Praise: maybe he does want to talk about his grandchildren. One thing all grandparents love to brag about is their granchildren. Believe me, I know from experience.


  23. Tess says:

    Speaking as a fan, I’ve loved Jon Voight ever since Midnight Cowboy. He’s one of those actors capable of bringing tremendous heart and soul to his performances.

    But I do think it’s a big mistake for the current crop of celebrity whores, oops, I mean “Actooors,” both male and female, as they like to call themselves, to make their kids such a bring part of their circus act.

    I predict that very little good will come from it. For the kids, I mean.

  24. BethL says:

    @Kim, there aren’t any interviews of them claiming they hate paps/attention. The only thing they complain about is the paps getting in the kids faces and tresspassing onto their property. To a lesser degree they are annoyed by the tabloids but try to ignore them. I don’t know why haters keep making things up/exaggerate what they say when interviews are online.

    So far Jon hasn’t said anything private, just that he loves his grandkids. Part of his past problems with Angelina was Jon would always talk about Angelina’s personal life. If he does it again I wouldn’t be surprised if their relationship becomes distant again.

    No, his concern wasnt legitimate. If he was soooOOo concerned about her, he would have spoken to HER not the ENTIRE VIEWING AUDIENCE OF CR@APLOID TEEVEE.
    I guess he’s lucky that Angelina finally forgave and reconciled with him. Guess which celeb some people are waiting on to forgive and reconcile with HER MOTHER?

  26. Camille says:

    @WhoDat: Yes and I also wonder if that same celeb went on to have kids (yeah right) and then went on to endlessly talk about them in interviews, I wonder if they would get hated on for doing that too? Hmmm.

  27. Cruisin Through says:

    Who Dat, with all due respect, you sound like an idiot. Are you over 12? You sure don’t sound like it. This isn’t a contest between Aniston and Jolie. This is about Jolie and her father. He is on record stating that he went public because she wouldn’t respond in private. It was a stupid move on his part and I’m certainly not saying otherwise. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t love his daughter, it means he did something stupid, as we’ve all done.

  28. Cheyenne says:

    @Moreaces: When my son and daughter-in-law were expecting my little grandson, now 14 months old, a friend of mine told me, you will not believe the joy you will get from your grandchild.

    He was right.

  29. Vee says:

    I’ll take Shiloh’s fashion sense against Suri Cruise and her high heels any day of the week. LOL!

  30. lisa says:

    Shiloh is so freaking cute to me.. an Original.. all their kids are cute to me but I’m sick of the Rags using this child.. and only this child to take a swipe at her mother. that is the bottom line. Using her to hit her mother. nothing more nothing less.

    Shi looks happy and free. She is loved by her family. Thing is when we have children sleeping on the streets and being abused.. the rags could do better highlighting those causes.. then the fake concern directed towards the way this 4 year old baby dresses.. Why don’t they put the faces of missing children on the covers.. I’m sure a lot of families would appreciate that kind of coverage. Shiloh is home with her family.. getting ready to jet-set around the world. hmmm she seem fine to me.

    Focus on things that are important. An outfit she is wearing today or tomorrow will mean nothing in the years to come.

    I’m not a fan of Voight.. but he and Angie have found peace. Angie stated in an interview that it was she that wanted the connection. I’m sure after the death of her mother you realize that you have ONE remaining parent. He is talking about his grand kids.. and he seems to be beaming when he does. LIKE all grandpas do. So good for him. It also shows that he does get to spend time with them and he seems to know their personalities. Those kids have a good life.. and I can show some people dozens of kids that need this fake concern..

  31. Chris says:

    Loved him in Midnight Cowboy.

  32. crab says:

    Wow does she look strung out in the 2nd picture of her standing with her father! I guess that was her drug days!!

  33. Sakyiwaa says:

    Shiloh looks great anytime, any day, the rags can go suck it.
