Voight Encouraged Angelina Into Films

Veteran actor JON VOIGHT encouraged daughter ANGELINA JOLIE and director son JAMES HAVEN to pursue careers in the movie industry.

The MIDNIGHT COWBOY star, who is currently estranged from TOMB RAIDER actress Angelina, insists he would never have discouraged them from following their father into Hollywood.

Voight says, "People sometimes ask me if I'm glad my children got into this business.

"But I think that if young people have some kind of thing within themselves, a purpose, a dream or a vocation, then it should be acknowledged and encouraged.

"I always wanted to find out what my children wanted to do and then support them.

"I don't think we've ever been worried because every life has its pitfalls."
