Hollywood's famous families: stars who prove talent runs in the family

Angelina Jolie & Jon Voight

Angelina Jolie and her father Jon Voight have had a turbulent relationship, following the break-up of her parents’ marriage when Angelina was just a child.

The pair briefly reconciled, and Jon appeared with his daughter in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, but their relationship quickly deteriorated. Following public pleas from her father who claimed she had “serious mental problems”, Angelina spoke out.

“I do not want to make public the reasons for my bad relationship with my father,” she declared, “I have determined that it is not healthy for me to be around my father”.

In September 2002, she legally dropped the surname Voight and started to use her stage name as her legal name. However, following her mother’s death in 2007, Angelina again reconciled with her father, following a six-year estrangement.
