Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s Relationship History

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s marriage didn’t last long but the memories do. The star of Maleficent, who is also a shocking connection between Jennifer Aniston and Laura Dern, once secretly got married to Pushing Tin co-star Thornton. Following is a brief account of their relationship history.

When did Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton get Married and How? A brief Relationship History

Brad Pitt’s ex-wife (Angelina Jolie) was once in love with Sling Blade’s Karl Childers (Thornton). The two love birds became husband and wife in 2000 and the marriage was an interesting one for a couple of reasons.

Billy Bob Thornton was engaged to SAG Awards 2020 winner and Marriage Story’s Laura Dern at the time. But he secretly tied the knot with Tomb Raider’s Angelina Jolie and shocked Laura Dern & everyone else.

The Eternals 2020 actress met Bob on the sets of the Pushing Tin movie and the on-screen chemistry morphed into an off-screen one in no time. Angelina Jolie was fresh out of the relationship with Johnny Lee Miller around that time. Billy, however, was still Laura Dern’s fiance when he secretly got married to Mr & Mrs. Smith actress. Marriage Story’s Nora Fanshaw (Dern) described the shock in these words:

I left our home to work on a movie, and while I was away, my boyfriend got married, and I’ve never heard from him again.

The secret marriage was not a long-lasting one though and the two called it off just 2 years later.

Why did Jolie and Thornton break up?

Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie duo didn’t last long and the marriage came to a halt in just two years. It was until 2016 when A Simple Plan actor opened up about the reasons behind their break up. Bob thinks it was the difference in their lifestyles that led to the separation.

I never felt good enough for her. She (Angelina Jolie) was always mingling with rich and important people, which made me uncomfortable. We just had different lifestyles. Hers is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle. So that’s the only reason we’re probably not still together, maybe. There was a different path in life we wanted to take.

Angelina Jolie has never really gone public about the details but the two are still in touch with each other. Most of you might know this but Bob’s obsession with secret marriages also didn’t end with Jolie. In October 2014, he stealthily tied the know with Connie Angland and the two are still together.
