Jon Voight is acting as babysitter to his daughter Angelina Jolie's children after putting aside their differences following years of estrangement. 

The actress cut Voight out of her life in 2001 after he voiced concerns for her mental health shortly before she adopted son Maddox from Cambodia.

Father and daughter reconciled in late 2009 and Voight finally got the chance to spend time with his grandkids last year, when he joined Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt in Venice, Italy, where she was shooting action thriller "The Tourist."

And Jolie turned to her dad to help look after her brood of six last week - Voight, 72, was snapped enjoying a day out in London with the Jolie-Pitt kids while the actress was in the Netherlands to attend the trial of Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga at the International Criminal Court, and Pitt was working on location in Scotland, filming new zombie movie World War Z.
