"It's nice to have something that's positive!" Voight, 71, told Us of getting together Sunday in Venice with his once-estranged daughter. He says their boat ride down the ancient city's Grand Canal was "lovely…the weather wasn't so bad for the journey. It's a very beautiful trip. A lot of fun."

And among his half-dozen grandkids, one blonde, blue-eyed beauty stood out: "I have baby pictures that are very resembling of Shiloh," he noted. "I don't know about all the resemblances, but obviously there are some because of the genes." (Shiloh, 3, is Jolie and Pitt's first biological child; her siblings are Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 19 months.)
