"It must have been pretty sever for this to happen," he told ET about the news Angelina had filed for divorce from her partner of 12 years.

"I don't know much yet, but I plan on speaking to her and the kids very soon."

The actor also told Radar Online that Angelina is "always concerned about the children."

"The priority is always the children. I'm hopeful. Say a little prayer...this is news to me, too."

The actress and her father have had a strained relationship over the years, since Voight 'walked out' on his family when Jolie was less than a year old.

Jon has also publicly spoken about Angelina's "serious mental problems", but after Jolie's mother was diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancer they began to speak again.

The pair publicly reconciled in 2010, but we're not sure how Ange will feel about her dad addressing the press about her most recent relationship news.
