August 21, 2008: "Jon Voight Angrily Responds To Roseanne Barr's Blog About His Daughter Angelina Jolie"
Jon Voight has branded Roseanne Barr "evil" for blasting his daughter Angelina Jolie.
Jon has angrily responded to the comedienne's vicious blog about Angelina and her "vacuous" partner Brad Pitt.
The 69-year-old actor has urged people to disregard Roseanne's internet rant, claiming she is a liar and has previously been misleading about being abused as a child.
Jon told U.S. TV show 'Extra': "We can never be surprised at what vile evil comes from the mouth of a confessed victim of child abuse at the hands of her own parents."
"Roseanne's parents responded to the accusation by going on the air and slating she is a psychopathic liar and her sister agreed."
"I can only pray that good people see her for what she is (sick of mind)."
Meanwhile, Roseanne has backtracked on the damning comments she made about Angelina, 33, and 44-year-old Brad.
She wrote in a blog entitled "I do not know Brangelina" on Tuesday: "I do not mean to personally impugn them as they might be good people in the flesh, but the media's images of them are smelly and vile, and I must always attack the media's representation of what is good or cool."
In her original posting about the couple, Roseanne blasted Angelina for failing to support Democrat hopeful Barack Obama over Republican candidate John McCain in the U.S. Presidential race.
The 55-year-old comic also attacked the pair for not giving more money to good causes, despite their charity the Jolie-Pitt Foundation raising millions for underprivileged children.
Jonathan Vincent Voight is an Academy Award-winning American film actor. He has had a long and distinguished career as both a leading man and, in recent years, character actor, with an extensive range. He came to prominence at the end of the sixties, with a performance as a would-be hustler in 1969's Best Picture winner, Midnight Cowboy, for which he earned his first Academy Award nomination. Throughout the following decades, Voight built his reputation with an array of challenging roles and has appeared in such landmark films as 1972's Deliverance, and 1978's Coming Home, for which he received an Academy Award for Best Actor.

He is also the estranged father of actress Angelina Jolie.
