Angelina Jolie's Ex Billy Bob Thornton Says: We Still Talk & I'm So Proud Of Her! Exclusive!

Posted Thu, December 16, 2010 10:16am EDT

Angelina & Billy Bob were notorious for their over-the-top PDA when they were married, and they remain friends long after their divorce.

It’s probably safe to say Angelina Jolie, 35, was the love of Billy Bob Thornton‘s life. The two were married for three years, and even though they showed their affections by wearing viles of each other’s blood around their necks, they ended up divorcing in 2003. HollywoodLife.com spoke with Billy Bob, 55, at the Disney On Ice, Starlight Children’s Foundation and AEG’s Season of Giving event Dec. 15 in Los Angeles, and he revealed that he and Angie are still close!

“We talk every now and then, she seems to be doing very well directing her own movie, which I am so proud of her for,” Billy Bob told us. “I always thought she should do that, writing and directing. She’s real smart, and very creative, and I think it’s a great job for her.”

Billy Bob is referring to Angelina’s current project, directing an untitled work in Hungary. If you remember, Angelina and Billy Bob adopted Maddox, 8, from Cambodia in 2002.

I do not respect AJ because she had an affair with a married man. She knew Brad Pitt was married when she seduced him. Also I have no respect for Brad Pitt, he was a married man when he decided to have an affair with AJ. Also, he is not a Christian. How can he say he does not believe in God? How can you look at the sun and the moon and look at a beautiful baby and not believe in God? Read the Bible. For him to say he’s an athiest is beyond belief. I feel pity for him and for AG and for their kids. I am so proud of Jennifer for holding her head up high and for her being a classy woman!!

chill out people she didn’t take your husband! I don’t agree what all that happened but we weren’t there maybe brad and jen where on their way to divorce…who knows.
AJ is beautiful who the hell said she’s ageing bad we ALL age and she is not doing the AGEING thing bad. the part about her wild days who wasn’t wild in their twenties I know I was but I’M 46. do I do the same crap…NO. maybe the lady matured!
I like jen too (kicking body, face so so, funny and nice) but it wouldn’t have hurt her to do the sandra bullock thing and be graceful and keep quiet…just saying.

Actually no; she adopted Maddox herself; as a single woman – Billy Bob didn’t want more children; hence the divorce…keep up gossip columns; keep up!

there is no double standard.
brads family doesn’t speak to Jen why would brad?
billy bob thornton has never trashed angelina and angelina has shown nothing but respect for billy bob.
there is a big difference between billy bob and Jennifer aniston
billy bob did not go running off to do several magazine articles talking about angelina nor has he taken advantage of angie by trashing her children. He has not once ridden the divorce train like Jen does.
no double standard here
one ex was very civil and respectful to angie and is even freinds with Brad while the other ex is still trying to milk the poor divorcee gravy train by enlisting a trashmate named chelsea to do her dirty work.

now, you know that brads family wants nothing to do with jennifer. but most likely would welcome billy bob into their homes.

Whoa up here, People. The article is about Angelina Jolie, not about what’s seriously wrong in YOUR lives. It’s Hollyweird. It’s what they do, then they move on. I’m not crazy about her or any of the rest of the playbill for that matter. Free Will. God gave it to all of us. Who cares who she’s been with or sleeping with now? She’s a good actress and director. It’s what she does. No sense biting each other while posting. Come on now. Stop it.

Of course, they still talk now & then even though they don’t have one thing (like children) that justifies an ongoing relationship between these two. This just proves what Chelsea Hanler said in her stand up comedy performance recently about Jolie only have men friends. I have NEVER heard her say she has a female friend. I hope Brad Pitt gets dumped by Jolie, he really deserves it.

Hey Anne why don’t you take a flying leap and scum sucking loser. I’ll bet you’re one of these retards who feel you know the brangelina bunch personally and talk about them at work (while you’re scrubbing the toilets at an office building I probably own). You’re a freaking loser! Get back to pumicing your mom’s corns reject!

What the heck is that supposed to mean? Role model? Who said anything about that? You’re just as stupid as the rest of these brangelina lovin’ nuts. I’m sure you’re a wonderful role model. You probably ignore your children while you read about your beloved stars. Put down the Enquirer and hurry up and get your kids their Kraft Dinner. Yet again another LOSER!!

Woah! Lots of bunny boilers on here. It wasn’t even a vial it was a pressed flower in a locket with a smidgeon of blood…I guess she preferred the idea of lifeforce which is pretty romantic.

Brad made his choice nothing to do with Angelina she wasn’t married to anyone. Jennifer A said they grew apart and wanted different things and that would be apparent from the lifestyles they respectively live today. Angelina wanted same things and J A will find someone who likes doing what she likes doing. They just ran their course. Psychos should just check themselves in rehab for thinking they know better than JA. Or do you think she lied when she said they grew apart, wanted different things and all the other remarks she has made? Is she is a liar?

She’s such a dirty pig (one that hasn’t aged well at all). I hate her and wish she would die a very painful death very VERY soon. If I have to look at those retarded kids of “hers” at the grocery checkout one more time I’ll scream. Brad Pigg is old and washed up and the two of them are just barely mediocre actors. Please take your ugly brood and move to france or africa or better yet just DIE already!!

that was very rude to type “Hang yourself” it’s people like you who print stupid stuff like that, and some very vulneralbe or insecure people will take you up on that, especially if they have no self esteem and feel hopeless. be careful of the words you type!!

There is no need to be hateful. How can you hate someone you don’t even know. You might hate this person’s actions but to say you hate them is ridiculous. Shame on you.

If you are going to believe everything u read or hear from the trashy papers and gossip shows. I feel sorry for you for you know not what you do .

Billy Bob didn’t say they are close. He said they talk occasionally. Talk about trying to make a story out of nothing and trying to start a lame scandal.

Although it is definitely VILE to carry around the blood of others, the word Chloe and Russ, is VIAL.True journalists need more that spell check to sound credible, if not professional. Do your homework.
