As the effects of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce rumble on, Ange's ex Billy Bob Thornton admits he 'never felt good enough' for her...
In the midst of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s very public divorce, Billy Bob Thornton has spoken out about what it was like to be married to Angelina.
Billy Bob and Angelina famously eloped to Las Vegas back in May 2000 after just two months of dating. And of course, the eclectic couple made the headlines for reportedly wearing vials of each other’s blood around their necks.
Billy and Ange split after just three years, and have both since gone on to marry again. But now, for the first time, Billy has broken his silence on being Jolie’s husband.
‘I never felt good enough for her,’ the Goliath actor told GQ. ‘I’m real uncomfortable around rich and important people… like how I am.’
Billy also revealed that he still had Ange’s name tattooed on his body, and blamed the faliure of their marriage on a lifestyle clash, saying he was more laid back, whilst Angelina was extremely focused on global politics and humanitarian causes, even back then.
Jolie has previously written about her ex, saying that living with him was like ‘being with a mad mathematician’ as he was ‘constantly counting and repeating.’
Billy’s comments come just days after Brad Pitt was cleared of child abuse allegations.
Brad spoke out about his divorce for the first time at the LA premiere of Allied earlier this week, telling E! News: ‘It’s really sweet, everyone has been really kind out here. It’s really nice to have all the support.’
Angelina’s rep also released a statement about her former husband that same day, which read: ‘Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.’
