Actor is still close to his ex-wife

Billy Bob Thornton has revealed that he regularly keeps in touch with ex-wife Angelina Jolie.

Angelina became Billy‘s 5th wife in 2000 but the couple split in 2002 before finalising their divorce in 2003. Even so, Billy Bob still has a lot of love for Ange, 38.

Oh of course [we’re still in touch], yeah,’ Billy Bob, 58, tells Your Tango.

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.’

Ange is now settled with fiancé Brad Pitt, 50, and their six children while Billy Bob has been dating partner Connie Angland since 2003.

The actor has previously admitted that he has no plans to wed again after feeling like he was to blame for the end of his marriage to Ange.

I blew my marriage to Angelina,’ Billy Bob told The Sun last year.

I thought I was not good enough for her and I was too insecure. We are still friends.

Marriage is not easy. If the guy is, say, a plumber and his wife works at a flower shop, both working 9am to 5pm and seeing each other every day, those marriages are hard enough.

But being on the road, away from home, makes it more difficult. If you are an actor, even doing a Disney movie or cartoon voices, you could still be away from each other for six months.’
