Billy Bob Thornton has revealed that he keeps in touch with his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie. The former couple, who once wore vials of each others' blood around their necks, were married for two years, ending in 2003.
The 58-year-old actor, who currently stars on FX’s Fargo, was asked by the dating website Your Tango if he’s still in touch with Brad Pitt’s fiancé.
He said he’s “of course” still in contact with her, gushing “She's amazing, amazing. She's got so much energy and so much goodness in her, and we check in on each other all the time. She makes sure I'm doing okay. I make sure she's doing okay.”
According to Us Weekly, Jolie, who now has six children with Pitt, planned on adopting her oldest son, Maddox, with Thornton before they split. She ended up adopting him by herself and Pitt later became his legal parent before they adopted and conceived their other children.
In 2012, Thornton told Nightline he “blew it” with the Maleificent actress because he was too “insecure.”
"I didn’t think I was good enough for her," he said at the time. "She has one way she wanted to live her life and I had another way to live mine and I was just too insecure."
