HOLLYWOOD- Actor Billy Bob Thorton, who was married to actress Angelina Jolie for three years from 2000 to 2003 recently made some candid confessions about how life was with the Maleficent actress.

In a recent podcast appearance, Thornton said, “Angie is still a friend of mine and she’s a great person and she’s done so much. She makes movies that are important to her whether they succeed or fail, she still does what she believes in and I’ll always respect her for that.”

At one point in their marriage, Thornton and Jolie used to wear a vial of each other’s blood on necklaces.

About that Thornton clarified, “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. But by the time it came out in the press it sounded like we were wearing a bucket of blood around our necks.”

Their marriage ended in 2003 and the main reason was their different lifetsyles.

“We just had different lifestyles. Hers is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle,” Thornton said. “So that’s really, that’s the only reason we’re probably not still together, maybe. There was a different path in life we wanted to take.”
