Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has ended the bitter feud with her estranged father, actor Jon Voight, and is back in touch with him.

The Tomb Raider star who's concluded "families have to be earned" is rebuilding her rocky relationship with veteran actor Voight after a long stand-off, the Sun reported online.

"We're in contact now and writing letters. My parents gave me a strong social conscience as well as any acting genes I may have," she said.

The 34-year old actress, who is bringing up six children with partner Brad Pitt had cut all ties with her father after his womanising ways ended his marriage to Jolie's mother, French actress Marcheline Bertrand.

And Jolie insists she wants to raise her kids differently.

"Both my parents were very focused on helping other people and supported charities all their lives. I don't want them raised as children who have 'movie star' parents. I grew up around that myself and I want to make sure ours are removed from it," she added.
