Actor Jon Voight says he hasn't been in contact with daughter Angelina Jolie, or her four children, since she broke off communication with him for saying that she was unbalanced.

In 2002, Voight was on TV crying because he believed Jolie was having "severe emotional problems". reports that the two have not had any communication since then.

Jolie recently said: "He said some very ugly things about me. Even though he is related to me, I don't have to listen to what he says. I don't have to care. And I don't have to have him in my life."

Voight now believes the best way to win back his daughter is to keep quiet.

"I haven't been in touch with the kids and I would love to be spending time with them, that's all. I have nothing to say, people want to make news out of everything.

"It's just a cruel slap at somebody and it becomes a part of our mythology, we can't correct it. I don't want to bring attention to it again. It always hurts me when things are brought back to the fore that are distorted," said Voight.
