Jon Voight: people say granddaughter Shiloh looks just like him

In Touch Magazine decided to ask Jon Voight about his grandchildren. Instead of issuing a quick, polite “no comment” about the grandbabies he’s never met, Voight once again decided to give a little interview.

They asked him about Shiloh, and it seems like people keep telling him that little Shi (who turns three years old in May) looks just like her grandpa Voight. Grandpa loves when people tell him that, saying that “It makes my heart very warm to hear that.” However, doing a not-so-in-depth investigation, we can find that Shiloh looks exactly like her mother at that age. And whenever I see pictures of Shiloh, I only see Brad. Of course, I could make the argument that Angelina takes after her father (sometimes) and that there’s even a resemblance between Brad and John at times. So how many people are coming up to John Voight, telling him Shiloh looks like him?

Jon Voight is flattered [when] people say his two-year-old granddaughter Shiloh looks just like him.

‘It makes my heart very warm to hear that,’ he says.

The actor’s daughter Angelina Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt are parents to twins Vivienne and Knox, 9 months, Shiloh, and adopted kids Maddox, 8, Pax, 5, and Zahara, 4.

And Jon, 70, who has had a turbulent relationship with Angelina, 33, would love to babysit.

‘I haven’t done it yet,’ he tells In Touch. ‘But I keep asking.’

From Now Magazine

Angelina probably won’t let him babysit until he stops talking about her and the kids in the press. Or maybe she’s just done with her dad, especially after the latest revelations about her late mother’s back taxes and her father’s years of unpaid child support. Last summer, Angelina talked about her father in a few interviews. Trying to publicly explain what must be a difficult personal issue, Angelina said, “We are going to try to get to know each other and maybe try not to be this daddy and daughter, but to be there for each other as friends in the coming years.” Familial love means never hiring a babysitter, Angelina!

    She does look just like him! When I saw those latest pictures of her that was the first thing I thought!
    Must be hard not to see your grandchildren..what horrible thing could he have done? Why has Angelina not forgiven him I wonder. Ofcourse we don’t know what happened, but somehow it seems so cold..

  2. HEB says:

    But how much can a three year old girl really look like a wrinkly old man?

    I am kind of rooting for Angie to forgive her Dad though.

  3. Feebee says:

    I think he’s desperate for any connection. Poor guy. While no-one can know the history between AJ and JV enough to say it’s time to move on, you kind of hope they find a way to so that the kids get to know both sides of the family.

  4. Maritza says:

    I’ve seen old movie of Jon Voight where he looks very young and Shiloh definitely looks like him likewise Angelina.

  5. geronimo says:

    She does look very like him. Even if you don’t like Voight, can’t take that away from him, flies in the face of the evidence.

  6. Wonder Woman says:

    Sorry I see brad

  7. SixxKitty says:

    When will that man close his trap! And he wonders why AJ is distant!
    I see Brad with Angz lips 🙂

    As difficult at it can be, I do hope that Angelina’s children get the chance to make-up their own minds as regards whether they’d like to get-to-know ‘grandpa John’.
    I had a very difficult realtionship with my father, as did my brother & sister too, but once I’d had children I decided it wasn’t right for them to miss-out on having a grandfather (their other one died in 1953, so no hope there), and so I embraced this ideal and have never regretted it. Miraculously, it seemed to afford my dad an opportunity to enjoy family life this second-time-round, and he became quite the ‘perfect’ grandpa. Equally my daughters rememeber him with love and affection.

    why would she be upset with him over her mother’s back taxes…that has nothing to do with him?

    she (angelina) does look like the both of her parents, but i always thought she looked more like her father than her mother, and shiloh does resemble her grandfather…it genetics, can’t avoid those

    See a bit of Jon, makes sense, he’s in the gene pool.
    I see more of Brad in Shiloh. She is a cutie!

  12. Leandra says:

    It’s hard to forgive the past but I think it is time for Angie to do that. Even a visit once every six months or so would be better than nothing. The old guy isn’t saying anything much about Angelina to the Press, seems like quite generic comments.

  13. Prissa says:

    Of course Shiloh looks like Brad and Angelina BUT I’ve always though she RESEMBLES her grandfather. It’s the eyes and the nose (Ang’s nose was much pudgier at that age!).

  14. Prissa says:

    Oh, and I agree with Lena. Ang has the overbearing resemblance to her mom with the lips and her hair coloring (I daresay her teeth too), but I’ve always thought Angelina looks more like her dad.

  15. Maria says:

    That baby looks just like Brad Pitt but I wonder why is this news. She is a baby not a movie star. Why can’t these stars say no comment when ask about their personal life.

  16. Maudie says:

    Shiloh looks just like Jon Voigt. I thought so since the day she was born. There are a bunch of photos published where they are the spitting image of each other.

  17. Sharon says:

    Some people/parents/reltives/friends are so toxic, they destroy everything they touch. I’m from that kind of mother.I never broke it off with her. I didn’t have the guts. But some people are not possible to have in your life unless you want your life to be all about the drama they create around them and have to deal with that constantly. Just because someone is “blood” doesn’t mean it is healthy or necessary. That’s very limited thinking.

  18. Annie says:

    I’m sorry for that Sharon and I agree 100%.

    Luckily for me, I never ever have to deal with my father, thanks to my wonderful mother. Because I know that if I were subjected to him…..

    Well, let’s just say, I don’t blame AJ one bit for her decision. Just because you’re blood, doesn’t make you family.

  19. Cinderella says:

    I’m sure AJ is just thrilled at the comparison.

  20. BOGART4017 says:

    Don’t kid yourself jonny—that kid looks like Brad spit her out—Ptooey!!

  21. raven says:

    Well, if the rumors are true and Jolie splits with Pitt, and he ends up with the kids, my guess is that grandpa Voight will be a frequent welcome visitor.

  22. Judy says:

    Have you ever seen a picture of her MOther when she was young?? You cannot tell AJ and her mom apart. That little girl looks like brad but has AJ lips.
    oight has run his mouth so many times that AJ has just walked away from him and his need to blab her personal usioness in public. This is why she doesnt want a relationship with her dad because she cant trsut him to keep his mouth shut ..I mean can you talk to your dad and not expect him to call a press conference?? He is too damn old to try to take care of 6 kids anyway..he needs to stop talking about her life in the press and maybe he can be freinds with ehr..but not until her stops.

  23. yae says:

    Wow, the mistakes one must reflect on in old age. The pain caused to others, the screwups, the family members who they can’t see. How many families finally mend the fence on a loved-one’s death bed, when the loved-one is doped up on morphine and almost too stoned to really embrace the moment? I hope the’ve quietly mended already.

  24. czarina says:

    I am always amazed by the number of self-righteous “poor old guy”‘s and “she should forgive him”‘s I read every time there is an article about Jon Voight.
    Nobody writing here knows what went on between Angie and her father, or what he did to her, her mother, brother, etc., over a lifetime.
    Nobody really knows all the reasons behind her decision to not be involved with him.
    Therefore, it seems very presumptuous of people to suggest she has to forgive him or reconcile with him or allow him to be with her children.

  25. Holly says:

    Actually, she looks just like Brad’s mom, whom Brad looks just like.

  26. Judy says:

    There is a lot to the sotry between AJ and her dad. I don’t think any of us have the right to say she “has to forgive” her dad. She doesnt have to do anything . You and I hav e NO idea what went on in her home or how that divorce affected her and the brother. My MIL ‘s father molested her until she was in her teens. She never told anyone until she was forced to take him into her home and take care of him when he got old. She had 2 breakdowns because of what he did to her. SO tell me was she to forgive him?? To make ab unch of people happy? People she didnt even know on a blog ?? LOL I don’t think so and until you have walked in anothers person shoes you cannot judge them for not forgiving someone for what they did to them.

    Shiloh looks like her daddy with her mommy’s lips. She is darling.

  28. Bigmoemiami says:

    What a mean-spirited untalented little film brat Angelina Jolie turned out to be. She needs to go running to her father and get on her knees and ask for forgiveness and let him see and spend time with his grandchildren. I guess the reason she has devoted herself so much to charity work is to try to justify the fact that she is so rich and famous without natural talent (have you ever seen her act? Do an accent like Meryl Streep? NO! She plays Angelina Jolie over and over again, the sultry, brooding puffy lipped trollop). She has her father John Voight to thank for her career otherwise she’d be just another washed up wannabe actress doing ad assistant work somewhere. Gimme a break. Bad actress and bad daughter.

    She looks just like John Voight not Brad but has her mothers mouth!!!
