Jon Voight is weighing in on his daughter Angelina Jolie getting a divorce from Brad Pitt.
Voight appeared at the Television Critics Association press tour this past weekend and took questions from reporters, including his thoughts on Jolie.
"It's a difficult time, and I don't like to talk about it, but of course, I'm thankful for everybody's good wishes and prayers," Voight told Us Weekly, of the Jolie-Pitt divorce. "And I hope things work out."
Voight is ultimately hoping that their six kids (Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, Knox, 8, Vivienne, 8) end up okay in the end.
"I'm rooting for them. I don't want this thing to dissolve. I'm rooting for the kids," Voight said. "My heart is with everybody, and my daughter, certainly, and the children."
Jolie and Pitt have agreed to keep details of their divorce out of the public eye, after a few months of nasty rumors and accusations playing out in the public sphere.
"The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues," says a new joint statement from the duo. "The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification."
Meanwhile, Pitt has reportedly focused on his health and fitness as he goes through the divorce proceedings.
"He lost a bunch of weight," a source close to the actor told Us Weekly recently. "He's focusing on himself again, watching what he eats and has a chef making him healthy meals. ... He's exercising. He's been outdoors a lot, hiking and walking. He's had a lot of time to focus on himself." A different source added: "He does a lot of weight training. He's dedicated to clean living and eating right."
