After reconciling with his famous daughter, Jon Voight has relished getting to know his six grandchildren and re-building his relationship with Angelina Jolie.
And though he'll soon be apart from them – when he heads out to Texas to film new TV show Lonestar – the actor says the distance won't be a problem.
"It's hard for me to be away from my grandkids, yes, but I'll stay in touch with them," said the veteran star.
"Thank God we have this technology, and you know, we use all of it."
The actor was talking about video conferencing application Skype, which he will use to chat to Brad and Angie and the kids.
"We're just setting it up now," the actor told US publication People. "I love being in touch with the family."
