Angelina Jolie writes the forward for Billy Bob Thornton’s book, saying he “has a big beautiful heart”
Angelina Jolie and her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton are obviously on really good terms. Earlier this year it was reported that Billy Bob was writing a memoir, and Angelina Jolie had written the forward to it.
It’s been 10 years since the couple divorced, but the two remain good friends. In Billy’s new book, ‘The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts’, Angelina says her former partner “has a big beautiful heart.”
Life & Style has gotten their hands on the forward, and here is an excerpt:
“He has an unmatchable wit and can make you laugh until your face hurts,” Angie writes.
The 36-year-old actress, who got engaged to partner of seven years Brad Pitt in April, gives even more details about Billy Bob’s personality.
“To be with him is like being with a mad mathematician,” she adds. “He is constantly counting and repeating.”
Along with talking about the things the 56-year-old actor loves and dislikes, Angie admits the world, and she herself, would not be the same without him around.
“Some people walk through life able to quiet the voices in their heads. He can’t. And I, and everyone else who knows him well, we love him for it,” she says, ending with, “I know one thing: The world would certainly be a hell of a lot more dull if that man weren’t in it.”
Billy recently opened up about his marriage to Angie, calling the failure of their relationship his fault.
“I blew it because I didn’t think I was good enough for her,” he said. “She has one way she wanted to live her life and I had another way to live mine, and I was just too insecure.”
Billy Bob Thornton and Angie Jolie, who co-starred in the 1999 film Pushing Tin, married in 2000 and were divorced in 2003.
So many people ran with this story saying the couple were obviously still doing each other – but I’m not buying that.
