After revealing she underwent a double mastectomy in February, Jon Voight says Angelina Jolie is focusing on her role as a director.
"She's doing good," the actress's father told PEOPLE at the Los Angeles premiere of his new film, Getaway, at the Regency Village Theater on Monday.
"She's getting ready to do her film, to direct her film," Voight, 74, added, referring to Jolie's next project, Unbroken, that starts filming in October.

There was no slowing down on Thursday night for Seth MacFarlane.
Fresh from the early evening premiere of his latest project, the comedy Ted, MacFarlane headed to his Beverly Hills mansion where he hosted a private afterparty that began late and went into the wee hours of the morning.
"The party started at 11 p.m. and was still going at 4a.m.," an attendee tells PEOPLE. "Seth had a whiskey bar and a guy rolling cigars for guests, which was pretty cool, and something he hasn't had at his parties in the past."
MacFarlane, who is known to host some of the most highly anticipated house parties in Hollywood, also managed to get some star power on stage during the fête.
"Rumer Willis got up and sang for a bit," the partygoer says of Demi Moore's daughter, who has been showing off her vocal chops lately at Jason Scoppa's Sayers Sessions. "She did a really good job!"
Also on hand was Gerard Butler, who was surrounded by ladies as usual.
"He was with two unrecognizable girls," the source says. "He was definitely acting flirty with them."
Angelina Jolie's dad Jon Voight also dropped by the bash, an appearance the source calls, "very random."

While mom Angelina Jolie and dad Brad Pitt were otherwise engaged, their children took time Saturday to hang out with their grandfather, Jon Voight.
The Oscar winner, 72, took Shiloh, 5, Zahara, 6 and Pax, 7, out to stretch their legs on Richmond Green, a grassy area not far from their rental home in the London suburb.
"There was a cricket match on so they just stopped to have a look," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Jon explained to the children what was going on [with the game] … it was a really traditional English scene."

Jon Voight continues to relish his role as grandpa to the children of his daughter, Angelina Jolie, and her partner, Brad Pitt.
"Shiloh, oh boy, she's a smart one, but she's four years old, you can never tell what she does, her face lights up," the Coming Home Best Actor Oscar winner, 71, told reporters at FOX's Fall Eco-Casino Party at L.A.'s Boa Restaurant this week.
"They're all smart," says Voight. "Z's smart, they're all smart I'll tell you. Maddox, Pax, Z … I gotta get all their names, because you can't cheat and I'm not going to. Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne, they're all very smart kids, beautiful too."

Jon Voight was in proud-papa mode Monday at daughter Angelina Jolie's Salt premiere in Hollywood.
Soon, though, the Oscar-winning actor, 71, will be shipping out to Texas for the new TV show Lonestar, but he says the distance won't put a damper on the relationship he's building with his daughter and grandkids.
"It's hard for me to be away from my grandkids, yes, but I'll stay in touch with them," Voight told PEOPLE at a screening of show's pilot episode at the Paley Center in Los Angeles. "Thank god we have this technology, and you know, we use all of it."

As Angelina Jolie continues her working-mom trip to Europe, she has made a point of family bonding – not only with her six kids and partner Brad Pitt, but with her long-estranged dad, too.
On Feb. 21, the actress, 34, was photographed with father Jon Voight, 71, in Venice, where the Jolie-Pitts spent some time last week before heading to Paris. Voight joined the entire family for a trip down Venice's celebrated Grand Canal.
So what spurred the public reunion, which marked the first time the father-daughter duo had been photographed together in several years?
