The Tomb Raider beauty invited Nhan Dung to visit eight-year-old Pax at the Six Sense resort in Con Dao, where the family was staying.
It was the family's first visit to Vietnam since the actress adopted Pax from an orphanage near Ho Chi Min City.
A source tells Us Weekly, "It was a one-day visit. Nhan was looking forward to it after Pax had lived so many years abroad."
Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt have three biological children and have also adopted kids from Cambodia and Ethiopia.
The Tomb Raider actress cut Voight out of her life in 2001 after he voiced concerns for her mental health shortly before she adopted son Maddox from Cambodia.
Father and daughter reconciled in late 2009 and Voight finally got the chance to spend time with his grandkids last year (10), when he joined Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt in Venice, Italy, where she was shooting action thriller The Tourist.
And Jolie turned to her dad to help look after her brood of six last week (ends28Aug11) - Voight, 72, was snapped enjoying a day out in London with the Jolie-Pitt kids while the actress was in the Netherlands to attend the trial of Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga at the International Criminal Court, and Pitt was working on location in Scotland, filming new zombie movie World War Z.
The Tomb Raider star received a standing ovation as she was handed the Heart of Sarajevo trophy for bringing attention to the plight of refugees from Bosnia's 1992 to 1995 war with her directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey.
Jolie, whose partner is fellow Hollywood actor Brad Pitt, told the audience, "I will start crying if you don't stop. I told Brad in the car I was afraid I was going to cry. I am so honoured to be here at this festival. There is no greater example of the strengths of the artists and the festival that began during the war and grew stronger every year."
Jolie filmed a number of scenes from her drama in Bosnia and visited the country several times last year (10) in her role as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations' refugee agency.
In the Land of Blood and Honey is set for release in December (11).
The Tomb Raider star shares three adopted and three biological children with Pitt and has previously admitted she's too busy to think about adding to their family.
Recent reports suggest the pair has been in Haiti looking into adopting an orphaned girl named Leah, but The Tourist star's rep insists Jolie has only been meeting with officials and lawyers in the country to set up her own charitable foundation for the impoverished nation's children.
The spokesperson says, "There is no truth to these rumours. Angelina is focused on enhancing the welfare and legal protection of children within Haiti. As such, she has been meeting with government of Haiti officials, Haitian legal experts and non-governmental organizations regarding a new initiative of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation. The recently launched Jolie Legal Fellows Program will assist the justice system in Haiti to improve child protection."
The Tomb Raider star has a large family to buy for, including partner Brad Pitt and their six children, but the actress struggles to organise how to carry her presents around on her global trips.
She expains, "I have to do a lot of my Christmas shopping in catalogues because I'm usually in a different country and I need it shipped to the next country we're going to. So we try to do that or buy things locally in whatever country we end up in."
The Tomb Raider star shares three adopted and three biological children with Pitt and admits she's too busy to think about adding another into the brood.
When asked about plans for more kids, she tells Britain's OK! magazine, "No, I think it's very important to give our children the individual attention they need now before expanding our family.
"You try to feel them, because at different times, different children need you - you must find the time to listen to them. Brad and I are also really lucky because between the two of us, we can spread the attention around."
The Tomb Raider star, who owns a house in Italy's north-east Veneto region with partner Brad Pitt, has reportedly donated cash after the area suffered rising water levels following a spate of heavy rains.
Several residents have been forced to abandon their home, while others had to be rescued after becoming trapped by the floods.
And Jolie has also offered to head fundraising appeals to help boost efforts to overcome the floods, reports Britain's The Daily Telegraph.
The Tomb Raider actress is currently in Pakistan to visit victims of the recent devastating floods as part of her role as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador.
She admits life can be lonely away from Pitt and their six children while she's carrying out her humanitarian projects, and she's confessed her lack of close pals is also a burden.
She tells CNN, "I'll talk to my family. I talk to Brad; he wants to know as much as he can about these issues and every trip. He's been here as well; he came with me after the earthquake. But I don't know, I don't have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to."
But the Hollywood star takes time to ensure her kids understand her campaigns: "I tell my children why I'm going and I explain to them why I was packing flashlights and food. They help me pack some things. My children are from a lot of these countries, so I want them to understand what's happening in Africa, the boys to understand what's happening if there's something current in their countries, and for all of them to know about each other's countries as well."
The actress, who is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations (U.N.), called for her fans to help raise funds for the Pakistani people whose lives have been devastated by the floods which hit the country last month (Jul10).
And as the death toll reaches more than 2,000 and fears increase about the spread of water-borne diseases, Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt have donated part of their fortune to help boost aid for the country, according to news agency AFP.
The Tomb Raider star frequently gives away money to help others - she donated $1 million (£666,666) to Doctors Without Borders to help earthquake survivors in Haiti earlier this year (10), as well as handing over $75,000 (£50,000) to build a girls school in Afghanistan.
Salt the propulsive new thriller from Phillip Noyce (Clear and Present Danger Patriot Games) has been dubbed “Bourne with boobs ” but that label isn’t entirely accurate. In the role of Evelyn Salt a CIA staffer hunted by her own agency after a Russian defector fingers her in a plot to murder Russia’s president Angelina Jolie keeps her two most potent weapons holstered hidden under pantsuits and trenchcoats and the various other components of a super-spy wardrobe that proudly emphasizes function over flash.
But flash is one thing Salt never lacks for. Its breathless cat-and-mouse game hits full-throttle almost from the outset when a former KGB officer named Orlov (Daniel Olbrychski) stumbles into a CIA interrogation room and begins spilling details of a vast conspiracy. Back in the ‘70s hardline elements of the Soviet regime launched an ambitious new front in the Cold War flooding the western world with orphans trained to infiltrate the security complexes of their adopted homelands and wait patiently — decades if necessary — for the order to initiate a series of assassinations intended to trigger a devastating nuclear clash between the superpowers from which the treacherous Reds would emerge triumphant.
The Soviet Union may have long ago collapsed (or did it? Hmmm...) but its army of brainwashed killer orphan spies remains in place and if this crazy Orlov fellow is to be believed they stand poised to reignite the Cold War. It’s a preposterous — even idiotic — scheme but no more so than any of our government’s various harebrained proposals to kill Castro back in the ‘60s. As such the CIA treats it with grave seriousness even the part that that pegs Salt who just happens to be a Russian-born orphan herself as a key player in the conspiracy.
Salt bristles at the accusation but suspecting a set-up she opts to flee rather than face interrogation from her bosses Winter (Liev Schreiber) and Peabody (Chiwetel Ejiofor). A former field agent she’s been confined to a desk job since a clandestine operation in North Korea went south leaving her with a nasty shiner and a rather unremarkable German boyfriend (now her unremarkable German husband). She’s clearly kept up her training during while cubicle-bound however and in a blaze of resourceful thinking and devastating Parkour Fu she fends off a dozen or so agents of questionable competence and takes to the streets where she sets about to clear her name and unravel the Commie orphan conspiracy before the authorities can catch up with her. That is if she isn’t a part of the conspiracy.
The premise which aims to resurrect Cold War tensions and graft them onto a modern-day spy thriller is absurdly clever — and cleverly absurd. But Kurt Wimmer’s screenplay isn’t satisfied with the merely clever and absurd — it must be mind-blowing. Salt is one of those thrillers that ladles out its backstory slowly and in tiny portions every once in a while dropping a revelatory bombshell that effectively blows the lid off everything that happened beforehand. No one is who they seem and every action every gesture no matter how seemingly trivial is imbued with some kind of grand significance. The effect of piling on one insane twist after another has the effect of gradually diluting the narrative. When anything is possible nothing really matters.
But spy thrillers by definition trade in the preposterous and the principal function of the summer blockbuster is to entertain. In that regard Salt more than fulfills its charge. Noyce wisely keeps the story moving at pace that allows little time for asking uncomfortable questions or poking holes in the film’s frail plot. And he has an able partner in the infinitely versatile Jolie who having already exhibited formidable action-hero chops in Wanted and the Tomb Raider films proves remarkably adept at the spy game as well.
It’s well-known that Jolie wasn’t the first choice to star in Salt joining the project only after Tom Cruise dropped out citing the story’s growing similarities to the Mission: Impossible films. But she’s more than just a capable replacement; she’s a welcome upgrade over Cruise not least because she’s over a decade younger (and a few inches taller) than her predecessor. Should Brad Bird require a pinch-hitter for Ethan Hunt he knows where to look.
