Jon Voight says he decided to reconcile with daughter Angelina Jolie after being struck with an emotional epiphany.

The actor famously fell out with the Oscar-winning beauty in 2002 after he accused her of having "serious mental problems" but they have now put their problems behind them after he had a sudden change of heart last year.

He said: "I suddenly saw things differently and everything shifted. That one moment changed my whole life. It gave me back my daughter and my family. Being reunited with my Angie is very precious to me."

Jon, 72, says one of the best things about being reunited with Angelina is bonding with her and partner Brad Pitt's six children.

Speaking about the kids - Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - Jon is quoted by the MailOnline website as saying: "I adore my grandchildren, they are my great love. It makes me so emotional and grateful. When my daughter sees me with them she says she sees another energy In Me which takes over. 

"I'm always laughing and completely happy when I'm with them. It makes Angie so happy too, as you can imagine."
