Jon Voight is putting his grandchildren first following his daughter Angelina Jolie's shocking divorce from Brad Pitt.

Voight, 77, gave an on-camera statement regarding the shocking split.

"I'll be speaking to her shortly I think," he said of his daughter. "It's a sad time and I'm concerned about the kids and all of that."

The actor added that he wishes his family "the best."

Jolie, 41, filed for divorce earlier today, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking full physical custody over the couple's six children.

Voight exclusively told of his daughter's custody decision, "The priority is always the children. I know she's always concerned about the children."

Jolie's attorney released a statement claiming their decision to divorce was made "for the health of their family."

But Pitt, 52, fired back with a divorce statement of his own.

"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well being of our kids," he told People in a statement. "I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."

Sources claim Jolie disagreed with Pitt's parenting style and became "extremely upset with his methods."

As readers know, Pitt's drinking was also a source of contention for the couple, as his boozy behavior halted production of their film By the Sea.

"They would see how he was a mess," a source told "People were worried that he was an alcoholic."
