Thornton: Still Pals With Jolie

Subscribe to Billy Bob Thornton alerts

Hollywood badboy Billy Bob Thornton is still friends with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie.

The LOVE ACTUALLY star insists they have a good relationship, although he is sick of hearing reports he cheated on the Tomb Raider actress during their two year marriage.

Thornton explains, "It has been said we've fallen out and I'm trying to avoid her. That's not true.

"We talk on the phone most days. She is a beautiful woman and a wonderful woman."

Thornton and Jolie split in June 2002 and cited "irreconcilable differences" in their divorce papers. The union officially came to an end a year ago (MAY03).

Thornton says, "It was all my fault. It was all down to my inadequacy. I was frightened of Angie because she was too good for me. She was too beautiful, too smart and had too much integrity.

"Everyone got the real reason for our split wrong. It was reported somewhere that I had an affair with a waitress in Idaho. This was untrue.

"So I left that relationship in fear, thinking I could never live up to her. I never cheated on Angie, despite all those rumours."

Thornton has found love again with CONNIE ANGLAND, who is expecting their first child together in October (04).
