All Jon Voight Wants for Xmas: Two Grandkids

By: Betsy Waldman / November 21, 2008

Jon Voight only wants two small bundles under his Christmas tree—Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon, the newborn twins belonging to his daughter Angelina Jolie and her man Brad Pitt.

“The twins! Holy smokes…I’m hoping, so we’ll see,” the actor told OK! Magazine last night in New York City, when asked who he’s hoping to spend the holidays with.

While relations between Voight, 69, and his 33-year-old daughter Jolie have been strained— rumors of late have Angie ready to cross him out of her life altogether—Voight remains optimistic. He elaborated to the mag that, since the birth of little Knox and Viv, Jolie’s “very happy…I saw her here before the twins came, and she was so happy. I’ve never seen her that happy.”

Hopefully some of that goodwill will transfer to Voight. Isn’t that the reason for the season?
