(femafirst.co.uk) - Angelina Jolie has offered to end her bitter estrangement with her dad JON VOIGHT, stating she's hoping to communicate with the Deliverance star. The couple have been estranged ever since she cut him out of her life for insinuating she was unbalanced in a tearful 2002 TV interview.
Voight told America's Access Hollywood he felt Jolie was suffering from "severe emotional problems".
That came before Jolie became a mum, and she has refused Voight's attempts to get close to her and her family ever since.
In a recent interview, Jolie defended her actions, stating, "He said some very ugly things to me about what he thought I was like as a person and how I was conducting my life... I don't have to listen to what he says. I don't have to care. And I don't have to have him in my life."
But it seems the mother of four, who lost her own mother to cancer in January (07), is now softening towards her father. She recently told London's Evening Standard newspaper, "I am hoping my relationship with my father will be more private in the future.
"At the end of the day we both wish the best for each other and we'll try to start communicating in some way."
Meanwhile the star has spoken out about her recent weightloss, admitting the death of her mother took its toll on her eating habits.
The actress accepts she has been looking a little unhealthy in recent months but insists she doesn't have an eating disorder - she's just been mourning the loss of her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died of ovarian cancer in January (07).
The actress says, "I've always been lean and this year I lost my mom and I've gone through a lot." Jolie also credits the facts she has stopped breastfeeding baby daughter Shiloh for her rapid weightloss. She adds, "It's been hard to get my nutrition back on track."
But she's upset that so many people have assumed her weightloss is cosmetic: "Instead of people saying I look like a person dealing with something emotionally, they assume it's because I want to fit into skinny jeans. "Someone saying to me that I'm thin is not a compliment."
