Angelina Jolie Still Sends Ex Billy Bob Thornton's Son Harry Holiday Gifts (Exclusive)

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton were married from 2000 to 2003.

Harry Thornton still has a connection with his father, Billy Bob Thornton’s, ex-wife, Angelina Jolie. The Relatively Famous: Ranch Rules star shares that although he doesn’t talk to his former stepmother daily, she still thinks about him.

“To this day, she still sends me Christmas gifts every year and stuff like that,” Harry, 27, tells ET. “I don’t talk to her on the phone every day but every now and then we talk.”  

Angelina was married to Billy Bob from 2000 to 2003. At the time, the 66-year-old actor was already a father of three. 

Harry says that vacations with Angelina prepared him for his time on Relatively Famous. “She was so cool,” he says of the 46-year-old mother of four. "She took us camping every week and she rented, like, a RV one time, and we went on a full camping trip."

Harry reminisces, "She was just so fun for us back when we were, like, younger. Like, she was a lot of fun."

Relatively Famous: Ranch Rules follows eight celebrity kids as they trade in their cushy lifestyles, and try their hand working at and living on a ranch. The series is a revival of Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, which starred Kourtney Kardashian -- before Keeping Up With the Kardashians fame.  

The show's stars include Harry, Jasmin Lawrence (daughter of Martin Lawrence), Taylor “Tay” Hasselhoff (daughter of David Hasselhoff), Ebie (daughter of Eazy-E), Redmond Parker (son of Ray Parker Jr.), Austin Gunn (son of Billy Gunn), Myles O’Neal (son of Shaquille O'Neal) and Hana Giraldo (daughter of musicians Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo). 

When it came to rules from their famous parents, Harry, Jasmin and Tay’s famous dads were all supportive of their journey.

"He said, 'Don’t do anything embarrassing,'” Harry says, adding that he did not follow Billy Bob's advice. 


Although her comedian father joked about roaches, Jasmin, 25, says her dad was all about her having fun. “He was really excited for me, and he was like, ‘I’m proud of you. Take the opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone and do something for someone else,'" she says of the 56-year-old Martin star. “I think that was really important to him.”  

Tay, on the other hand, felt like her father's background gave her the upper hand when it came to the experience.

Her 69-year-old Baywatch dad said it was all about having fun. “He said to me, 'Just go have fun. Live life to the fullest,'" she shares with ET. "'You got one life. Go enjoy yourself. You can meet seven new people. Hopefully you guys become a family.'"

Tay, 31, says she was extra excited about life on the ranch, as she would have a chance to live like the characters on her favorite Paramount show, Yellowstone.  

The Relatively Famous cast had a number of unfamiliar chores that were both physically and emotionally taxing. However, when it comes to one of the toughest chores, shearing a sheep takes the cake.

“You know, those sheep, they weigh a lot," Tay admits. "They do not want to be sheared. And I think cleaning the dingleberries out of the wool just wasn’t one of my favorite things or activities to do.”
