Billy Bob Thornton’s crazy time with actress Angelina Jolie isn’t something he like’s to look back on too fondly after their divorce in 2003.
Thornton and Jolie allegedly wore blood vials around their necks and he explained a bit more about it to The Hollywood Reporter during an interview for Fargo. So did the couple have a dungeon in their home? Well, he said it was actually his basement recording studio.
“I mean it was a crazy time, … I’ve never been fond of it … Vial of blood is very simple … You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your grannie in and wear it around your neck? She bought two of those. We were apart a lot because she’s off making Tomb Raider and I’m making Monster’s Ball. She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razor blade 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.”
While Billy Bob Thornton’s crazy time with his ex-wife was strange, he still has a lot of affection for Angelina Jolie, according to US Magazine. The magazine said that in 2012 the actor told ABC’s Nightline he still had feelings for her. He said:
“We had a great time together … We had a great marriage and I chickened out because I didn’t feel good enough. That’s all that happened. It was no big deal, we never hated each other.”
Billy Bob Thornton’s crazy time with Angelina Jolie started with rumors in the tabloids. He explained that they started rumors about wearing quart jars of blood around theirs necks. Then there was another tabloid story that they were vampires living in a dungeon.
Thornton, 59, and Jolie, 39, met on the set of 1999’s Pushing Tin and married in 2000. According to the actor, media reports on their relationship were always exaggerated. And it seems that way after reading some of the strange stories that surfaced about them 10 years ago, before Jolie got involved with Brad Pitt.
Billy Bob Thornton’s crazy time with the actress ended about 2 years before she went off to make Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2005. That’s when rumors of a romance with Pitt hit the tabloids, The Inquisitr notes. Despite the actor trying to save his marriage to Jennifer Aniston, they were later divorced and in 2006 before the couple publicly spoke about their relationship.
