Angelina Jolie’s wild younger years were shared with Billy Bob Thornton. When she was just 24 years old, they eloped to Las Vegas back in 2000. They were also famous for wearing vials of each other’s blood around their necks.
Now, Billy opened up about what exactly was stored in those small vials.
He told the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s HFPA In Conversation podcast that it was nothing as huge as what the media made it seem to be back then.
‘The necklaces were a very simple thing,’ he explained.
‘Hey, let’s poke our finger with a pin and smear a little on there, and when we’re away from each other, we’ll wear the necklace.’ That was that easy, but by the time it came out in the press, it sounded like we were wearing a bucket of blood around our necks,’ he revealed.
‘That was a great time,’ he said.
Compared to Angie and Brad Pitt, Billy Bob and she are on good terms these days. He also made sure to address the reason for which he believes that they are not still an item:
‘Angie is still a friend of mine, and she’s a great person, and she’s done so much. She makes movies that are important to her whether they succeed or fail, she still does what she believes in, and I’ll always respect her for that. And I remember our time together has really been great. We just had different lifestyles. Hers is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle. So that’s really, that’s the only reason we’re probably not still together.’
