"We're all human beings, we've all made mistakes in our life, unless we're really some kind of saints that have never participated in human decisions. This kid's going through a lot of stuff right now. I say, let's put our attention on this kid with love and not make this trauma worse than it is. Can you imagine her in a room trying to make a decision as to whether to tell her mom and dad about this situation? I mean that's what I think. I think she's going through a lot of hell, and we can make it worse or take care of her."

Voight said he thinks Palin was a "magnificent choice."

"I think that since her nomination, she's taken over the spotlight in such a remarkable way because it came out of no where. Seeing her was very moving to me because she had such confidence, her reputation was so extraordinary, she has an 80 percent rating in Alaska as governor. In two years, she's done enormous things, she's been an activist against corruption. She's such a graceful person. The pride with which she introduced her family with love, I think she's fantastic. I can't wait to meet her."
