London, May 31 (IANS) Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has ended her long rift with her actor father Jon Voight. The pair has been estranged since 2002, when the Hollywood veteran said in a TV interview that his daughter had “severe emotional problems”.

But Jolie has started communicating again with the 69-year-old as she prepares to give birth to twins, reports

Jolie told Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald newspaper: “We are going to try to get to know each other and maybe try not to be this daddy and daughter, but to be there for each other as friends in the coming years.”

In a separate interview, Voight confirmed the pair planned to meet over the summer. He said: “I’m sure we will, yeah.”
