(Newser) – The reunion between Angelina Jolie and long-estranged father Jon Voight went so well that they’re planning to spend Christmas together. “It was wonderful. He’s crazy about his grandkids,” a source tells People. But in perhaps the oddest twist, it appears the reunion was orchestrated by not just Brad, but also by Angie’s brother James Haven—who, in the years since famously kissing his sister at the Oscars, has become a born-again Christian and began minister training.

Pitt believed Voight “deserved a second chance and so he stepped in,” teaming up with (Reverend?) Haven, a source tells E!. Angelina has “grown up a lot, and forgiving Jon is a huge step,” the source adds. To read what Voight had to say about the reunion, click here.
