Angelina Jolie continues to send love to ex Billy Bob Thornton’s son on Christmas
The Eternals actor officially parted her ways with the filmmaker in 2003 but according to Entertainment Tonight, Jolie has maintained good ties with her stepson.
During his conversation with the outlet on Wednesday, Thornton shared, “To this day, she (Jolie) still sends me Christmas gifts every year and stuff like that.” “I don’t talk to her on the phone every day but every now and then we talk,” he added.
He also gushed over his step-mother for being ‘so fun’. “She took us camping every week and she rented, like, an RV one time, and we went on a full camping trip. She was just so fun for us back when we were, like, younger. Like, she was a lot of fun,” he recalled.
Billy Bob Thornton opens up his feelings to Angelina Jolie
Next to Pamela and Tommy, Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s marriage was one of intrigue. Who, after all, in their right minds cruised around with vials of each other’s blood as necklaces? Jolie seemed a wild child – and if you ask Chelsey Handler, she still is.
But since splitting from her latest husband Brad Pitt, the intrigue-o-metre has gone into overdrive. What is it really like to be married to Angelina Jolie? Thankfully Thornton is talking.
In a podcast interview for HFPA in Conversation, Thornton, 62, reflected upon his three-year marriage to Jolie, 43. “I look at that time as a great time,” he said. “Angie is still a friend of mine and she’s a great person and she’s done so much.”
When did they marry?
The pair met in 1999 on the set of Pushing Tin and were married from 2000 to 2003. Jolie was Thornton’s fifth wife (red flag, anybody?). “I remember our time together as really being great,” he said. But if it was so great, why did it end?
“We just had different lifestyles. Hers is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle. So, that’s really—that’s the only reason we’re probably not still together, maybe, because of a different path in life we wanted to take.”
Attempting to explain the vials of blood, Thornton simply said the things he and Jolie did were “exaggerated” but insisted “it wasn’t as crazy as people wrote about it.”
“The necklaces were a very simple thing: ‘Hey, let’s poke our fingers with a pen and smear a little blood on there, and when we’re away from each other we’ll wear the necklace.’ It was that easy,” he said. “But by the time it came out in the press, it sounded like we were wearing a bucket of blood around our necks.”
“The movies she makes are still things that are important to her. Whether they succeed or fail, she still does what she believes in,” he continued. “And I’ll always respect her for that.”

Though their wedding set them apart from a typical husband and wife, nothing about Jolie and Thornton’s marriage went by the book.
In addition to their shotgun wedding, the couple also had a 20-year age gap between them, would often swap underwear, and even gifted each other his-and-her grave plots.
Though their marriage was one-of-a-kind, Jolie defended her and Thornton’s union, telling the New York Times that she and the Armageddon actor were just like any two people in love.
“People think they know a lot about our relationship,” Jolie said. “They know very little. What little they know, they’ve got pretty strong opinions about. I can’t help that. But I don’t think there’s anything weird about us… I’m just a very normal woman who is crazy about her man. And I’m also a lot of other things.”
While there’s nothing wrong with someone feeling strongly about their significant other, Thornton later revealed that the Salt actor’s love for him once left him afraid of her.
During his life, Billy Bob Thornton has married six different women and all but one of them weren’t famous. For example, from 1978 until 1980, Thornton was married to Melissa Lee Gatlin and the couple had a daughter together.
