LOS ANGELES: Veteran actor Jon Voight says he is rooting for his daughter and actress Angelina Jolie, her estranged husband Brad Pitt and their six children even though the pair split last year.

"It's a difficult time, and I don't like to talk about it, but of course, I'm thankful for everybody's good wishes and prayers. And I hope things work out," quoted Voight as saying.

Pitt and Jolie -- who are parents to Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 -- have a voluntary temporary custody agreement in place that allows Pitt supervised visitation with the children.

Asked about Jolie and Pitt's custody agreement, Voight said that he is remaining hopeful about the future of the former couple's relationship for the sake of his grandchildren. 

The "Ray Donovan" star said: "I'm rooting for them. I don't want this thing to dissolve. I'm rooting for the kids. My heart is with everybody, and my daughter, certainly, and the children."
