Jon Voight: daughter Angelina & Megan Fox are both ‘sexy gals’

transformers premiere 6 230609
It seems like Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight only makes news these days when he’s speaking out on his very conservative views, or when he’s talking about his daughter, Angelina Jolie. Voight attended the Los Angeles premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and he either got some questions about the “similarities” between Megan Fox and Angelina, or he just decided to talk about them. First of all – Voight isn’t in the film. He was in the first Transformers, but he’s not in the sequel. So maybe he just wanted to see the movie… but then why is doing interviews on the red carpet?

Back to the comparisons… so, in Voight’s mind, Angelina and Megan are similar because “they are both very beautiful women, and they are both sexy gals.” Voight added that both Megan and Angelina are “both in action pictures now”… uh, come again? What action film does Angelina have coming out? At least he’s not mangling the names of his grandkids (does everone remember Zahara as “Shakira”?). Michael Bay sees similarities between Megan and Angelina too. But Bay goes old-school, and references Angelina’s appearance in a Meatloaf music video. Classic:

Angelina Jolie’s dad sees the similarities between his daughter and Megan Fox.

“Well, they are both very beautiful women, and they are both sexy gals, you know,” Jon Voight told at the L.A. premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Monday.

“And they’re both in action pictures now,” he went on. Jolie’s thriller Salt hits theaters next summer.

Still, Voight thinks “everybody is unique. We are all so different from one another that we can’t be compared — but they are very attractive girls.”

Fox, 23, and Jolie, 34, have a similar career trajectory, according to the action flick’s director, Michael Bay.

“The truth is I gave Angelina her first job on a music video. It was a Meat Loaf video, years back [1994’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll Dreams Come Through”],” Bay told Us. “That was her very first job. And I gave Megan Fox her very first job.”

Fox — who told Us she’s “never met” the mom of six — has insisted she’s nothing like Jolie.

“Because I have tattoos and dark hair and I was in an action movie? That’s as far as the similarities extend,” she said earlier this month. “I’m not the next anyone.”

Instead of yelling and screaming about how Megan is nothing more than an extremely budget version of Angelina (just in looks), and how Megan loves when her name is mentioned alongside Angelina’s name, and how I really think Jon Voight is a senile bastard who should be kept away from the press, I’m just going to change the subject.

CB loves the human lie detector “Eyes for Lies” that she’s referenced on other posts. “Eyes for Lies” specializes in determining a person’s true intentions/emotions from their facial expressions, tics, tone of voice, eye movements, etc. CB recently sent in the post of Angelina’s interview with Anderson Cooper, and Eyes for Lies had some insight on Angelina’s intentions regarding her humanitarian work: “From this interview, you can’t read too much into Angelina’s relationship with Brad. There isn’t enough said to draw any conclusions. Angelina, however, seems to express a lot of compassion and caring for the refugees. She is a highly compassionate woman who picks up on the emotions of other people. When she looks at other people, she feels their emotions and is moved to action to help those less fortunate than herself. There is no doubt about it, her motivation is true and sincere.”

I guess I’m bringing up the “Eyes for Lies” assessment because I think in the long run, Megan will never be like Angelina – Megan isn’t smart enough, she doesn’t have the compassion or the emotional intelligence. Just because they’re both superficially “sexy gals” doesn’t mean Megan is fit to sit at the same table as Angelina.

    Ewwww, Jon Voight is one scary looking man.

  2. raven says:

    They both look a fair amount alike, especially if you compare Fox’s photo to early Jolie. And these gossip rags are shallow anyway so they think superficial similarities are all there is.

    I agree with the Eyes for Lies about Jolie’s real compassion. And you can’t blame Fox for trying to ride her coattails, no matter how much she denies it.

  3. geronimo says:

    Aw for pity’s sake. He’s an old man, he just gave an opinion on the two, they’ve both sexy, they’ve both been involved in action films, why does everything have to end up being dissected and scrutinised and found wanting unless it’s unadulterated adoration where Jolie is concerned?? Le big weary sigh. 🙄

  4. BlueSkies says:

    Oh look, AJ’s real cheek bones.

  5. Ned says:

    “Jon Voight is a senile bastard” for not “yelling and screaming about how Megan is nothing more than an extremely budget version of Angelina”?

    Why would he not compliment both women?

    He was asked because he is a part of the franchise to do the red carpet, and he was asked about the young star of these films in comparison to AJ.

    What kind of a person would trash the star of a film on the red carpet?

    I am sure Angelina is a bit more secure than to have the need of her father to belittle another women, just so she wouldn’t feel threatened.

  6. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    Geronimo – it has to be dissected because Angie-Jo is very very very important and her every move is a revelation to us all. LOL.

  7. Chez says:

    i really dont see the similarity between angelina jolie and megan fox, they both have stong cheekbones and dark hair but thats about it. if you look at their actual features they are different. megan looks more like that chick you posted yesterday-the orange girl with the gold outfit and gay boyfriend.

  8. TaylorB says:

    While they are both lovely, going by the pics above alone, I would be much more inclined to test the bi-sexual waters with Ms Fox, as long as she didn’t try and speak. She is stunning, horribly stupid, but stunning.

  9. Annie says:

    Am I the only one who’s immensely creeped out that her FATHER called her a “SEXY GAL” and that he’s calling someone who’s like 1/4 his age a “SEXY GAL”?

  10. Praise St. Angie! says:

    NO, annie, I’m creeped out by that too.

    reminds me of Papa Joe Simpson talking about Jessucka’s boobs.

  11. Sauronsarmy says:

    I don’t get the similarities either. Because Angie was the first ever person to have black hair, light eyes, tattoos and talk about sex? And its kinda creepy he would call his daughter “sexy”. Ew.

  12. Codzilla says:

    That last paragraph is gag-inducing. And I’m not talking about the US Weekly excerpt.

  13. TaylorB says:


    I am so with you on that. If my father ever called me ‘sexy’ or anything along those lines I am fairly sure I would have a stroke on the spot or fling myself in front of a bus, either way the ‘yuk’ factor is off the charts. Granted, she did basically make out with her brother on camera, so this family may have different sensibilities than most other folks about sexual boundaries between blood relations.

  14. Rachel says:

    praise st. angel, I can understand the comparison to joe simpson though I think joe simpson takes the cake on creepy inappropriate commentary, especially as he brazenly capitalized on his daughter’s sexy image. I like to dissect word usage and even saying “gal” vs. woman or girl kinda gives the impression (to me) of familial affection. aren’t Voigt and Jolie still majorly estranged? sad.

  15. fizXgirl314 says:

    my only dislike for angelina jolie is that she’s wayyy too much in the media and i’m sort of sick of it… other than that, these two are in completely different leagues. first off, megan fox is a good for nothing tramp… oops… did i say that out loud? tee hee…

    secondly, angelina jolie is flesh colored and human looking, not orange and a blow up doll… and she has been showing a lot of intelligence and compassion lately… so um… yeah, completely different leagues.

  16. fizXgirl314 says:

    and no Annie, you’re not the only one. i find this highly inappropriate a la shia lepoof… what is wrong with celebrities? *pukes*

  17. Rosanna says:

    Holy sh*t JV does smirk like Shiloh LOL Anyway, I am a fan of AJ’s and yet I like (physically, that is) MF way more.

  18. dancingnancie81 says:

    “Now, now girls, don’t fight,” Daddy said, “you’re both sexy gals.”

  19. the original kate says:

    i think it’s creepy that he refers to his daughter as “sexy.” i don’t know…seems odd to me but maybe my sense of “appropriate” is different. for example i was in a bookstore yesterday and a mother and her little girl were in the gay section looking at a coffe table sized book called “the big penis book,” which is a book filled with photos of huge, erect dicks. obviously a book by gay men for gay men. the girl looked & acted about 8 or 9, and they spent a good deal of time looking at it, page by page. i thought that was creepy, too. maybe its just me.

  20. truth-SF says:

    the original kate, WTF??! It’s not you, don’t even think that shit is normal. I have a 5 year old, and the only place we hang out together at a bookstore is the kiddie section. If you see me looking (more like oogling) at a book full of penises (yum), it will be by myself or with my friends of legal ages.

    @ NED: “Jon Voight is a senile bastard” for not “yelling and screaming about how Megan is nothing more than an extremely budget version of Angelina”?

    That’s not what was written at all. Re-read the sentence.

    @ Annie: I totally agree. It is a bit weird, you could get away with calling your daughter beautiful, but sexy? eww.

  22. Magsy says:

    Ew, calling your daughter sexy…gross. What’s AJ’s brother say, that she’s a good kisser?
