Billy Bob Thornton Talks Angelina Jolie Marriage

Billy Bob Thornton Talks Angelina Jolie Marriage

Angelina Jolie was married to Billy Bob Thornton from 2000 to 2003 and in that time, there were so many rumors flying about the twosome. They were said to be vampires and were living in a dungeon. And what about those vials of blood? Billy Bob clears all of that up in a new interview…

He said, “I mean it was a crazy time. I’ve never been fond of it. The vial of blood is very simple. 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 razor blade 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. From that, we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks. And we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon.”

There was, in fact, no dungeon, Thornton insists. Reports suggesting there were, were the result of selective hearing.

“I mean, it had some basis in fact. We had a basement which I had a recording studio in. So when I tell a journalist I stay down in the dungeon all the time, you know, recording music, they don’t hear ‘recording music,’ they hear ‘dungeon,'” he explained. “You know, because it makes a better story.”

Jolie and Thornton were married for 3 years between 2000 and 2003. In 2012 the actor told ABC’s Nightline he still had a lot of affection for Jolie.

“We had a great time together,” he said. “We had a great marriage and I chickened out because I didn’t feel good enough. That’s all that happened. It was no big deal, we never hated each other.”

Brad Pitt Changed By Angelina Jolie Marriage

Brad Pitt Changed By Angelina Jolie Marriage

Brad Pitt says that he is surprised at how much his marriage to Angelina Jolie has changed him and their relationship.

After nine years together, the duo finally took the plunge and tied the knot this past August and Pitt said that he didn’t expect things to feel differently, but they do.

In a recent interview with Hello! magazine, he said, “We have six kids so we felt beyond marriage already. But the kids were asking and we thought it would be a lovely thing to do, for them and for us as a family and it was all of that. But I was surprised afterwards at the effect getting married has had on us – it was more than just a ceremony, it meant a real depth of commitment. I feel like a married man – I really do.”

He also talked of the age difference, saying, “We’re probably around the same age maturity-wise – that’s the way it works with men and women right? But I don’t feel any different for having turned 50. I’ve never been one of those guys who counts time or thinks about the five-year plan or the ten-year plan.”

He added, “I’m pretty clear about how I want to live my life and what I want for my family and my wife and kids and that determines how I feel.”

Brad Pitt Talks About Angelina Jolie’s Damehood & Meeting The Queen

Brad Pitt Talks About Angelina Jolie's Damehood & Meeting The Queen

Angelina Jolie was recently made an Honorary Dame Commander by Queen Elizabeth and Brad Pitt couldn’t more pleased at his wife’s honor, but that hasn’t really changed how things work on the home front.

“It was just a pleasure and certainly one for the books,” the proud husband told Us Weekly at the London premiere of Fury on Sunday, October 19. “[It was] a wonderful afternoon for our family, a great honor for Angie and something we won’t forget,” he added at the event which closed the 58th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express, at the Odeon Leicester Square.

Pitt, Jolie, and their brood of six kids came face-to-face with Queen Elizabeth II in room 1844 of the monarch’s London residence on Friday, Oct. 10. Jolie received the award in honor of her humanitarian work, in particular her efforts to combat sexual violence in war-torn regions around the world.

“To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to,” Jolie said previously. “Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.”

So now that Jolie’s an Honorary Dame, does this mean she’s the boss at home? “Aaah, no,” Pitt told Us, laughing. “We have our own pecking order at home!”

Congratulations to Angelina on the honor!

Angelina Jolie Bought A $3 Million Watch For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie Bought A $3 Million Watch For Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got married on August 23rd and I was kind of curious as to what kind of gifts they gave each other to celebrate the occasion. Now, we’ve learned that Angie spent a whopping $3 million on a watch for her husband. Fancy!

He has wealth and possessions beyond his wildest dreams. But that did not stop Angelina Jolie giving Brad Pitt a rare watch said to be worth more than $3 million as a wedding gift. The saucy Maleficent actress bought her man a much coveted 1952 Patek Philippe platinum chronometer, a legendary design by one of the most respected of all Swiss watchmakers.

Angelina’s romantic gesture became known after she had a friend take it to shop to have it inscribed – ‘To Roly from Nessa.’ The couple play these characters in drama By The Sea, a movie they are currently filming in Malta, and which the actress is also directing.

George Farrugia who runs a jewellery shop on the neighbouring island of Gozo, told The Mirror: ‘I did inscribe the watch, it was for Brad and it was a rare one. Oh yes, it was very valuable.’

However the huge value of the watch did not faze the experienced 57-year-old.

He said: ‘I wasn’t nervous about the inscription because I knew I could do the work perfectly.’

Hopefully the news of what he gave her will leak next. What do you think of her gift to Brad?
