    Actor John Voight and daughter Angelina Jolie are talking again after a seven-year estrangement. Voight was photographed with Jolie, her boyfriend Brad Pitt and their six children in Venice, Italy, Feb. 20, 2010. Jolie stopped speaking to Voight in 2001 after he appeared on "Access Hollywood" and pleaded for her to seek help for her "serious mental problems." Jolie response was to have "Voight" legally removed from her last name. "My father and I don't speak. I don't believe that somebody's family becomes their blood. Because my son's adopted, and families are earned," said Jolie. Last year, Voight told Us Weekly magazine that he and Jolie were "in touch, but not regularly. We love each other and that's the most important thing," he said.
