Jon Voight insists Megan Fox is nothing like his daughter Angelina Jolie because the 'Changeling' star is a better actress
Angelina Jolie's father doesn't think Megan Fox is as talented as his daughter.
Actor Jon Voight - who is believed to have recently repaired his strained relationship with the 'Changeling' star - has blasted comparisons between the two brunette beauties, insisting 'Transformers' star Megan doesn't have the same talent as Angelina.
Asked if he thinks Angelina is similar to Megan, he said: "I don't think she is, no. She's one of our finest actresses. She's gotten to that point in her career. Megan is just starting out, but she has a lot of potential."
Jon has previously urged Megan - who is often compared to Angelina because of their similar looks and love of tattoos - to follow in Angelina's footsteps by undertaking charity work.
He said: "Maybe Megan will start doing the things that Angelina is so well known for. Angie is known for helping with kids and for her concern for others. I think that would be wonderful for all of the kids if Megan were to do the same."
Megan herself has previously laughed off comparisons with Angelina, insisting she is much more light-hearted and fun.
The 23-year-old star said: "People compare me to Angelina Jolie, and she's so serious and stoic. I'm the opposite.
"I'm not a tigress like Angelina. Of course, people want me to be. But I want to be the contradiction of that."
