Jon Voight has made no secret of his disappointment with daughter Angelina Jolie for keeping him from his grandchildren. I don’t think flubbing their names…or actually not knowing their names…helps his cause much. US magazine has the awkward exchange between Voight and a reporter on August 26 at a BAFTA Tea Party:
Voight: “Maddox just had a birthday. Happy birthday, Maddox! 5 years old-it’s a big one! You’re getting to be a young man, and I send my love to you. And send my love to…uh…Shakira…and…Shahira…[To reporter] Is it Shakira or Shahira?”
Voight: “Shahara! Shahara!”
Hmm…still didn’t quite get it right. Jon, I wouldn’t count on any birthday party invites any time soon.
