While promoting his show Lone Star on Monday, Jon Voightdished about his grandchildren (aka the Brangelina clan).
“Shiloh — boy, she’s a smart one! She’s four years old but you can never tell what she knows to look at her face all the time. All the kids are smart, I tell you. They’re beautiful children.
Sometimes you don’t like it [press] because sometimes it’s distorted stuff. But I like seeing them no matter where they are. I don’t read the stuff; I just look at their picture and swoon. I love them.
I’ve been away from my computer so I couldn’t get back to Maddox. I’m probably going to see him while I’m here. If I can see them in the flesh, that’s better than [Skype]."
Awwww. Brad and Angie must be very proud! It's nice that everyone is getting along.
It's so nice to see them taking such big steps to rebuild their relationship!
Jon Voight recently revealed that he's attempting to learn how to use Skype so he can continue to spend time with his daughter, Angelina Jolie, and her brood of children while he films his new TV series, Lone Star, in Texas!
"I'm gonna miss my connection to my grandkids. But I'm trying to Skype and use everything I can do to say in touch. It's very difficult for them to go anywhere easily. It's kind of easier for me to jump. I'm always happy when I'm around my children."
And don't worry - you'll get the hang of Skype! And if you don't, your grandchildren can teach you!
Kids always learn that stuff eight times faster than adults anyway!
PEREZ HILTON TO STAR IN “GAY DADS OF NEW YORK” REALITY SERIES
PRODUCED BY BUNIM/MURRAY PRODUCTIONS
LOS ANGELES – December 4, 2013 – One of Hollywood’s most colorful personalities is lifting the curtain on gay fatherhood. Gossip guru and media mogul Perez Hilton today announced he’s partnering with Bunim/Murray Productions, producers of The Real World, Project Runway and Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and OMG Productions to develop Gay Dads of New York. Set in New York City, the reality docu-series will follow Hilton, who recently became a single father, and a group of gay dads, single and married, as they support each other through the ups and downs of raising children.
“What is your typical American family like? These days, it looks a lot like mine! I am honored and excited to bring to television a show that will be filled with love, humor and drama. What will it not be? Trashy or boring! I am thrilled to have partnered with the leaders and innovators of reality television, Bunim/Murray, to create a program that is compelling and real,” said Hilton. “Up until now people know me more for my opinions than who I am. This show will give viewers the opportunity to get to know the 'real' Perez Hilton and my family, as well as some other really dynamic gay dads, and the women that make up their support system. I am a recent transplant to New York City, looking for friends and open to - hopefully - love. To new beginnings and this exciting new venture!"
“I immediately responded to the ‘Gay Dads of New York’ concept because my partner and I were part of one of the first gay dads support groups in Los Angeles back in 1998,” said Jonathan Murray, Chairman of Bunim/Murray Productions. "Whether it's a single dad like Perez, or married gay dads, becoming a gay parent affects your relationships with family and friends, all of which will make fascinating stories.”
“I brought the project to Bunim/Murray because of their brilliant storytelling, unbelievable track record in reality television, and what I consider the best eye for casting shows in the business,” said Suzy Unger, OMG Productions. “I have worked with Jon and his team for many years, and they are not only pioneers in the reality space, but they remain groundbreaking producers. We are proud to be working with them.”
Bunim/Murray Productions is currently casting the series, looking for gay dads in the New York City area who want to be in a support group with Hilton. More information can be found at: http://www.bmpcasting.com:16080/casting/gdc/
The series will be executive produced by Bunim/Murray Productions and OMG Productions. Suzy Unger at OMG Productions; Steven Grossman and Mario Lavandeira (Perez Hilton); and Bunim/Murray’s Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein and Scott Freeman will serve as Executive Producers.
