Ex-leading man decides to use `jowls, wrinkles'

Jon Voight is doing well by looking bad.

The 58-year-old actor is long removed from his Oscar-winning performance as a 1970s sensitive guy in "Coming Home." He admits it took some effort to accept letting go of his leading-man status."But I just determined that I wasn't going through face-lifts," he said in Time's Oct. 27 issue. "I decided to use my jowls and wrinkles." He put them to good use, with unalluring roles in "Anaconda," "Heat" and "U-Turn."
