Movie beauty Angelina Jolie regrets divorcing first husband JONNY LEE MILLER - because he was the perfect spouse.

The TOMB RAIDER star divorced British actor Jonny in 1999 and has since married and divorced Billy Bob Thornton.

And although Angelina and Jonny remain good friends, the actress now wishes they'd fought through their differences and stayed together.

She says, "I have no regrets about our marriage - divorcing Jonny was probably the dumbest thing I've ever done.

"He's the greatest husband a girl could ask for - we were simply too young."

Angelina, 28, dismisses tabloid reports she's recently dated Jonny, COLIN FARRELL and Nicolas Cage, and finds it difficult to understand why people can't believe she's single.

She says, "That's what happens when you're single and working with men. But I don't even have the time to shave my legs and feel sexy.

"I'm happy where I am right now. I don't need to be with someone other than my son.

"Have I been sleeping with people? No. It's funny that's shocking to people. I've gone without sex for a long time before.

"I had my first boyfriend when I was 14 and then I didn't sleep with anybody until I met my first husband at 19."
