(Newser) – Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may not see eye-to-eye with Brad's mom Jane on her anti-gay views … but at least the in-laws will get along? Angelina's notoriously conservative dad, Jon Voight, agrees with Mrs. Pitt's recent letter to the editor, he tells Fox News. "Good for her," he says. But Jolie herself is "mortified" by her future mother-in-law, according to a Star story reported by Radar. She "told Brad he must educate his mother, but Brad is too much of a mama's boy," a source says.

"Jane has never wanted to talk politics with Angelina," the source continues. But now, if Brad won't suck it up, Angelina will have to confront Jane "about how, as the mother of such a prominent celebrity, she shouldn't be writing letters that clash with her son's personal opinions." The result will be "a huge blowout, with Brad stuck in the middle," the source concludes. Meanwhile, Brad's brother, Doug, has also been trying to smooth the waters, recently telling the Today show that "moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world."
