Playing Billy Bob Thornton on 'Crazy Time' With Angelina Jolie: I'm Not 'Fond of It'

Though we bet plenty of men would do just about anything for a chance with Dame Angelina Jolie, apparently, her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton doesn't look back at their time together too fondly.

Thornton, 59, and Jolie, 39, met on the set of 1999's Pushing Tin and married in 2000 after a whirlwind two-month courtship. Things only got weirder from there until they divorced in 2003.

"I mean, it was a crazy time," Thornton told The Hollywood Reporter at a Loyola Marymount University School of Film & Television event on Oct. 15. "I've never been fond of it."

He also elaborated on the infamous blood vials the two used to wear around their necks, revealing the "romantic" thought behind the necklaces.

"Vial of blood is very simple," Thornton explained. "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 razorblade 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. Same thing."

According to the Bad Santa actor, media reports on their relationship were greatly exaggerated.

"From that, we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks," he said. "And we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon."

The dungeon they were referring to, he further explained, was actually his basement recording studio.

But clearly, both have moved on from their time together, with Jolie tying the knot to her longtime love Brad Pitt in August.
