Billy Bob Thornton Talks 'Crazy' Angelina Jolie Marriage, Says They Wore 'Lockets Full Of Blood' To Feel Close To Each Other

Angelina Jolie’s ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton has opened up about their “crazy” marriage.


Angelina and Billy Bob were married for three years, divorcing in 2003, and it sounds like their relationship was anything but a traditional one.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the actor reveals that while he and Angelina were working long distance, she came up with a unique way for them to still feel close to one another.

“She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razorblade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter’s baby hair in one. Same thing.”

It sounds like Ange - who was recently made an honorary Dame by the Queen - may have calmed down somewhat since those days, revealing recently that she and new husband Brad Pitt wrote love letters to each other while they were separated for film projects they were working on.

Nice… but it’s no locket full of blood, is it?

The ‘Maleficent’ actress has been with her current husband Brad Pitt for almost a decade, having first met on the set of the film ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’, where they played a married couple who were both secretly hiding the fact they were secret agents from each other.
