Voight to Jolie -- "Regards to....What's Her Name?"

8/29/2006 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Angelina Jolie's estranged father Jon Voight sent a shout out to his grandkids Saturday, but it seems like absence makes the memory grow weaker -- he royally screwed up one of the names.

At the fourth annual BAFTA Tea Party (BAFTA is the Oscars for Brits), Voight was talking with a reporter on the red carpet when he decided to send birthday wishes to Maddox, Angelina's five-year-old child. That went well, but then things took an ugly turn. Voight also sent well-wishes to "Shakira" -- problem is, he was talking about Angelina's 1 1/2-year-old daughter. Shakira is considerably older -- 29. The correct name -- Zahara. Close, but no cigar. Actors are famous for always getting another chance, and take two was perfect.

Jolie and her father haven't spoken since he went on "Access Hollywood" four years ago, urging her daughter to get help for her "mental problems."

Angelina is a self righteous b****!! How can she parade around the world preaching to everyone and not even forgiver her own father??!!!! You can tell by these clips that he is really hurt about this. Brad will eventually get this same treatment from this psychotic whore!!!

don't forgive that washed up publicity grubbing whiner. if he really wanted to make a peace offering he wouldn't use such a public forum , and it wouldn't have killed him to put a little effort into it by researching. People will use any excuse to get at Angelina these days. it is a widely accepted practice for adult children with abusive parents to cut them loose, the only difference is her dad continues to insult her and her children in public.

You try having a nutball for a parent and see if you want to forgive him/her? Not everyone who does not want any contact with their parent if selfish. Especially if there is good reason to.

ALL THE GUY SAID ABOUT HER IS THAT SHE NEEDS MENTAL HELP, IT IS 100% TRUE. IF YOU CANT SEE SHE'S A CRAZY BIATCH THEN YOU HAVE ISSUES TOO. SHE USED TO CUT HER SELF FOR PLEASURE WHEN SHE WAS A TEENAGER, THAT TELLS YOU SOMETHING. SHE ALSO WOULD BE NOTHING WITHOUT HER FATHER. HE IS THE SEASONED ACTOR IN THE FAMILY. BRAD IS AN IDIOT FOR HOOKING UP WITH HER AND HE WILL SOON REGRET IT, IF NOT ALREADY. SOMEONE NEEDS TO SMACK HER ON THOSE PUFFY LIPS AND GIVE HER A REALITY CHECK.

I just feel bad for the kids.........if you don't like your parents fine , but those kids already have no sense of family.......they are going to know they are adopted so they are already going to feel like they weren't wanted....and the one that is related is being kept away from real blood......maybe he doesn't derseve to know them......but those kids derseve the right to at least meet this guy ....she's just being selfish...he's apologized numerous times and all he can do is try and be a better grandfather then he was a father and he can't do that without an opportunity

Jon himself is a nut. He seems to do anything for attention and if it involves his daughter or grandfather they are fair game.

He gets no respect from me

Amy, I agree with you. She's using her kids to punish him. Sad.

Hey leona , the 'washed up' guy was nominated for an emmy. Psycho bitch, child-collector has done nothing once she exhausted her psycho-bitch character choices. she has no ability to play anything but herself which people are tiring of.... and she's getting ugly fast as all those puffy-faced chicks do as the years and gravity roll on!
