And here we thought Billy Bob Thornton was just a creepy old weirdo who publicly confessed to a fear of silverware. Don’t get us wrong; he is definitely still all those things, but he’s also turned into the nicest ex-husband a gorgeous A-lister could ever hope for. Even more surprisingly, it turns out Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob are still friends. “We talk every now and then. She seems to be doing very well directing her own movie, which I am so proud of her for.” Aw! That is so sweet, we’re almost not scared of running into Billy Bob alone in some dark alley at night. We said almost. We’re not stupid.
Continued Thornton, “I always thought she should do that, writing and directing. She’s real smart, and very creative, and I think it’s a great job for her.” So that’s what happens when you break up with Angelina Jolie. She becomes a radiant goddess with a bazillion dollars and her own private child army, while you turn into a piece of human beef jerky covered in hair. We just hope when we’re huge superstars married to Brad Pitt, our starter husbands will be half as gracious.
