Despite Angelina Jolie having a busy career, she still makes the headlines for her relationships with people like Brad Pitt and Billy Bob Thornton as for her movies and charity work. The high-profile marriages and alleged affairs of the star of “Maleficent” keep her in the tabloids.
In 2000, when Jolie and the Love Actually star got married quickly, they were in the spotlight, and there were many interesting things about their wedding. They couldn’t hide how much they loved each other. But just two years later, they split up. The Oscar-nominated actor has talked before about what made them break up.

Billy Bob Thornton was engaged to someone else when he married the fourth of his five wives, Angelina Jolie.
Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton hit it off right away when they played husband and wife in the 1999 movie Pushing Tin. The couple got married in May 2000 in Las Vegas. Big Little Lies star Laura Dern, who was engaged to Thornton at the time, was surprised by the news.
The odd couple went on to be on the covers of magazines, where they talked about the weird things about their relationship. Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton are not like most husband and wife couples because they are 20 years apart in age, wear vials of each other’s blood as necklaces, swap underwear, and give each other their grave plots as gifts.
People think they know a lot about our relationship,
Jolie once said, according to the New York Times.
They know very little. What little they know, they’ve got pretty strong opinions about. 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.
How Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton grew apart.
Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton started to grow apart because of their different interests, which is something that happens in many marriages.
He’s a really good man,
she told Vanity Fair in 2015.
I went through a change in my life and started paying more attention to the news and learning about other countries and becoming more politically active.
Because Jolie worked on helping people and Thornton worked on his music, the couple grew so far apart that they couldn’t get back together.
In a year I became who I am today, very much, and he became who he is today,
Angelina Jolie says that she and Billy Bob Thornton were on “totally different paths in life.” This could be because she was only 24 when they got married.
We just looked at each other one day and we had nothing to say to each other,
As for the rumors that Thornton cheated on Jolie,
I don’t think they are untrue,
the Tomb Raider star said.
She said that Thornton didn’t want to grow their family, even though they had planned to adopt Maddox together.
He wasn’t, uh, ready, but, uh, he sent me his love. It’s kind of tragic.
How Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton feel about each other now.
Jolie still had a lot of respect for Thornton. She said that they simply went from being in sync to going on different paths. But the Bad Santa actor seemed a little more confused after they broke up and couldn’t pin down specific reasons for their divorce.
I don’t think either one of us knows why we split up,
he said in 2003, according to Entertainment Weekly.
It was like, say you’re going to a nightclub one night with your friends and you’re in line and the next thing you know there are guys with helicopters and there’s machine-gun fire and you don’t know what happened. And that’s kind of like what our breakup was like.
Even now, they are still very good friends. In an interview with GQ in 2016, Thornton said he still liked Jolie but admitted,
I never felt good enough for her.
