Jon says that he cannot pick anything sad about the surprised wedding of her daughter and Brad Pitt, especially as this will make the couple's six children happy. Receiving no invitation is not worth being grouchy about if he can now legitimately call Brad Pitt his son-in law.
"I'm very happy that I can now legitimately call him my son-in-law, this wonderful fellow who I love, and that they're very happy," "Midnight Cowboy" star said to "Good Morning Britain" on Friday. "The kids must have had a wonderful time at the wedding because they all had their things to do."
"It must have been very beautiful. I'm very happy for them," he said. Moreover, Jon said that he will see his daughter and the rest of the family as soon as it's possible. He also said that this will be a happy and exciting reunion.
Jon may have to wait until Angelina's busy schedule gets cleared. Unlike other new brides, Angelina Jolie is not basking in the glow of wedding bliss. E! Online reports that she is back to work immediately after getting married, filming for a new movie "By The Sea" and is continuing her work as a human rights activist. Angelina shifted public's attention from her wedding to issues in Syria by releasing a statement on behalf of UNHCR.
"Three million refugees is not just another statistic. It is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syri. International stability is steadily bleeding away in Syria. UN Security Council Resolutions are being ignored; war crimes are being committed on a daily basis; regional countries are staggering under the human burden; and Syrian refugees are dying in the Mediterranean Sea, trying to reach Europe," she said.
Jolie and Pitt married at Chateau Miraval in France on Saturday, as confirmed by their spokesperson on Thursday.
