Voight Hails Daughter Jolie For Beating Hollywood

JON VOIGHT has hailed his estranged daughter ANGELINA JOLIE for using her super stardom to help disadvantaged people, and not falling into the Hollywood vanity trap. The MIDNIGHT COWBOY actor, who famously fell out of favour with Jolie after he publicly criticised her, is disgusted by the way society turns film stars into demi-gods. But the 67-year-old is proud his daughter, who is expecting her first biological child with boyfriend BRAD PITT, uses her fame to draw attention to globally important issues. He tells the New York Post, "All of us break the rules, the Ten Commandments. We set up idols. We're not supposed to have idols. "What do movie stars do with all that success, money, white-hot spotlight and fame? It's distortion. An unnatural state. "Angie has found a way. She's overcoming it with causes. Investing her celebrity to help others. "Look, Hollywood stars aren't up all night with sick kids or troubled husbands because, 'If I don't get sleep, I won't look good.' Beauty is their god."

It's good to know that Angelina is not vain. One would think that an uneducated twit who believes that she has the qualifications to lecture others would house a great deal of vanity, not to mention arrogance, elitism, ignorance, and general stupidity. It's good to know that "Hollywood" hasn't gone to Angelina's head. One would think that renting an African compound, surrounded by wild lions to "protect her" during her little b****rd's birth, is a hyper-case of "going Hollywood."It's great to know that Angelina is a wonderful person.One would think that someone who "adopts" [buys] children from foreign countries and keeps them in chaos with never-ending plane trips, jet-lag, nannies, languages, and subjects them to a "family" structure that changes almost daily, due to her own neurotic behavior, who seduces a married man, gets pregnant out of wedlock, who ignores her own children due to her interest in "the world's children," who sees no value in establishing a healthy home life, who is covered with tattoos, who can't seem to get her stories straight, and whose "son" is photographed scowling constantly (except when he is being given expensive presents) . . . . . . . Oy vey![We have all heard stories of children from "Hollywood" backgrounds, and how they had no chance to develop normally. Well, the problem isn't "Hollywood" the place, it's "Hollywood" the attitude. And crazy Jolie has taken her act on the road. She is living "Hollywood" on a global scale. And her whacked out dad is just as nuts as she is. Only a whack job would think that Jolie's insane lifestyle is admirable.]

Angelina Jolie is truly a role model for many young women today. She has shown us that with great blessings come great responsibilities. She is a Hollywood star. She used that position wisely to reach out and help the severely distressed people of the third world nations. She's helped the sick. She's put food back into the cupboards. She's helped many stand strong on their feet once more, giving all she's assisted a fighting chance at prospering in life and hopefully attaining the means to also effect positive change in their respective societies in the future. I admire this lady, and I fully intend on using my blessings to effect positive change in my lifetime.
