Voight Praises Daughter Angelina Jolie for Beating Hollywood
But the 67-year-old is proud his daughter, who is expecting her first biological child with boyfriend Brad Pitt, uses her fame to draw attention to globally important issues.
He tells the New York Post, "All of us break the rules, the Ten Commandments. We set up idols. We're not supposed to have idols.
"What do movie stars do with all that success, money, white-hot spotlight and fame? It's distortion. An unnatural state.
"Angie has found a way. She's overcoming it with causes. Investing her celebrity to help others.
"Look, Hollywood stars aren't up all night with sick kids or troubled husbands because, 'If I don't get sleep, I won't look good.' Beauty is their god."
