Five-times divorced Billy Bob Thornton has confessed he's unlikely to get married again, because he's afraid of being wed more times than MICKEY Rooney.

The MONSTER'S BALL star, who has a baby daughter with his girlfriend CONNIE ANGLAND, is taking things more cautiously this time around.

Otherwise, Thornton, who was famously married to Angelina Jolie for three years, worries he would have more wives than the eight-times married Rooney.

The 49-year-old says, "I doubt I'll ever get married again, simply because I don't want to see the number in the papers.

"I mean, if I ever catch up with Mickey Rooney, I've had it, you know. I'm not going to do it again."
