Jon Voight continues to relish his role as grandpa to the children of his daughter, Angelina Jolie, and her partner, Brad Pitt.

“Shiloh, oh boy, she’s a smart one, but she’s four years old, you can never tell what she does, her face lights up,” the Coming Home Best Actor Oscar winner, 71, told reporters at FOX’s Fall Eco-Casino Party at L.A.’s Boa Restaurant this week.

“They’re all smart,” says Voight. “Z’s smart, they’re all smart I’ll tell you. Maddox, Pax, Z I gotta get all their names, because you can’t cheat and I’m not going to. Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne, they’re all very smart kids, beautiful too.”

As for keeping in touch with his six grandchildren via Skype, as Voight vowed to do, “I’m trying!” he says, “Maddox says ‘okay’ – he writes me back ‘okay’ and then I can’t get it, but I’ve been away for my computer so I couldn’t get back to him.”
