September 8th, 2011 10:34am EDT

Rip TornActress/director Angelica Torn has changed her surname as she no longer speaks to her father Rip Torn.

The theatre star has legally registered her surname as Page, after her mother Geraldine Page, insisting she wants to "honor" the screen legend and distance herself from her famous dad.

She tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "The time has come to now honor my mother by taking her last name from this point on in my life. In the last several months I've come to realize that my father and I just don't see eye to eye on so many things, and I've found I no longer have anything in common with him."
