According to her friends, the 'Tomb Raider' star was "embarrassed" that her father, who attended the Republican national convention, was among a few celebrities who were backing the ill-fated McCain campaign. Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt are keen Barack Obama supporters. Rumours were abuzz that Jolie and her father were on better terms due to the diplomatic efforts of Pitt.
However, Jolie's pals fear that Voight's political association could damage the chances of reconciliation with his daughter. "Angie was embarrassed by her father's association with McCain, not to mention his comments about Sarah Palin, who she isn't a fan of," the Daily Express quoted a source as saying.
"Angie remarked that considering the treatment he doled out to her mother, she wasn't that surprised that he now supported a woman who, in her opinion, was taking women's rights back 100 years. "Things are fragile between Angie and Jon and it doesn't take much to rock the boat. Their political differences haven't helped things," the source added.
