Actresss Angelina Jolie has written the foreword to ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton’s new memoir, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts, a rep for the book’s publisher, HarperCollins, confirms.
Jolie, 36, and Thornton, 56, were married from 2000 to 2003. During their intense, highly-publicized marriage, the couple famously wore vials of one another’s blood around their necks. Jolie has since moved on and has been in a relationship with actor Brad Pitt since 2005. Married five times, Thornton and makeup artist Connie Angland have been in a relationship since 2003.
“We talk every now and then,” Thorton said of Jolie. “She seems to be doing very well directing her own movie [In the Land of Blood and Honey], which I am so proud of her for. She’s real smart, and very creative, and I think it’s a great job for her.”
According to book description info on Amazon, The Billy Bob Tapes promises to tell “colorful tales of his modest Southern upbringing, his bizarre phobias, his life, his loves (including his brief marriage to fellow Oscar winner Angelina Jolie), and his movie career.”
