Angelina Jolie's Dad: "Being a Grandfather Is Wonderful" Credit:

Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight -- Angelina Jolie's father -- has played many, many roles, but his favorite is Grandpa!

"Every stage of your life has delight, thank God, and also dramas," Voight told at Monday's Prince of Persia premiere in Hollywood. "But, oh my gosh, being a Grandfather is the most wonderful thing!"

Following a seven-year rift, Voight, 71, and Jolie, 34, reconciled earlier this year. (The actress cut off communication with her dad in 2001 after he tearfully told Access Hollywood that his daughter suffered "serious mental problems.")

And in late February, Voight joined Jolie, her love Brad Pitt and their six kids -- Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, Shiloh, 3, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 22 months -- in Venice, Italy for a boat trip down the city's Grand Canal. Soon after the excursion, he told Us it was "a very beautiful trip...It's nice to have something that's positive."

Voight added Monday, "I hope to see [the kids] soon."

Might Jolie and Pitt adopt another child again? "I don't know that," Voight admitted.
