Back in the 2000, when Angelina Jolie won Best Supporting Actress for Girl, Interrupted we went in a total meltdown. During her speech she said that she was “so in love” with her brother, James Haven. Later, the 41-year-old was photographed with James in a post ceremony lip-lock and the media went nuts. Now, after 17 years it would be pretty cool if we give a look at what Haven is up to. There are reports of him directing a movie and he also had done quite of acting. Ever since Brangelina divorced, he has been spending more time with his sister.
Sometimes people forget that their first public kiss happened in January 2000 at Golden Globes.

Right after that came the Oscars. After accepting her award she said:“I’m in shock, and I’m so in love with my brother right now. He just held me and said he loved me and I know he’s so happy for me.”
Before her win, came the infamous kiss on the red carpet.
But, Angelina was really disappointed after the reaction of the kiss. She thought it was overblown.
“First, we’re the best of friends,” she said. “And it wasn’t some odd open-mouthed kiss. It was disappointing that something so beautiful and pure could be turned into a circus.”
James also felt that there was an unnecessary reaction to the kiss.
“I did not give Angie a French kiss; it was something simple and lovely,” he said. “I congratulated her on the Oscar win and gave her a quick kiss on the lips. It was snapped and became a big thing round the world.”
The siblings had spent the day with their mother who was being treated for cancer in a hospital and after the hospital they got ready together for the ceremony. It was a very emotional time for them.

The relationship with their father, Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight wasn’t that good.
“I do have horrible memories of my father and the way he behaved,” Haven said. “He was so tough on our mother.”

Because of their tough relationship with their father, they dropped their surname, Voight, in favor of their middle names. Aww!
“He was always around but he never did his job as a father,” Haven said.
After James became a born-again Christian in 2009, he patched things up with Voight and encouraged Angelina to do the same. She did about a year later.

“I also wore a little flower ring that was hers, and James wore an angel pin from her jewelry box,” Jolie said.
