Angelina Jolie helps people because of father’s behavior?

Angelina Jolie and Maddox

According to Daily Mail news, Angelina Jolie’s brother James Haven has said he believes her sister is helping people because of their father (Jon Voight) bad behavior as they were growing up. Angelina Jolie has not spoken to Voight since he said that he thought she had “serious mental problems”, shortly after her split from Billy Bob Thornton in 2002. As a recall, though Jon Voight has reportedly asked Angelina Jolie to forget about the past and to let him into her life so also allow him to share the happiness as he wishes to be an active grandfather, Hollywood Celebrity Angelina Jolie has given up on recommunicating with her estranged father, because being with him makes her feel miserable and she doesn’t need him in her life.

I have no memory at all of my mother shouting at me or at my sister. But I do have horrible memories of my father and the way he behaved. He was so tough on our mother. He lived in the same town. We saw him around Christmas time or at school recitals. He was always around but he never did his job as a father. I think one of the reasons Angelina and I care so much for other people is his treatment of our mother. Angelina and I were very protective of her for that reason.

The first two years I just cried constantly. I couldn't really talk about the situation without being emotional. And I went through a period of just complete lack of hope. I don't know if anybody saying that has spent the last six years of their life going to over 30 camps and really spending time with these people.

Before I met Brad, there were many times I'd be up exhausted with my son Maddox in the middle of the night, and there was nobody there who appreciated my efforts. When he said his first word, there was nobody that I could look at and explode in excitement with. It made me very close to Mad, but now there's the joy of waking up and sharing the burden. I think, as a woman, having a partner who appreciates you as a mom and who is going to remember those things about you and your history with the children is very special.
