Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are the A-list couple many stars wish to be; however, along with fame comes a slew of old lovers still lingering and haunting them from the past. For Brad, that old ghost will always be Jennifer Aniston. For Angelina, that old ghost has resurfaced to be ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton. Wow, that marriage was one no one expected and weren’t surprised when it ended.
Recently, Thornton even went so far as to say he was hoping to see Jolie at the upcoming Berlin film festival. And, that he would “love her until the end of my life.” That part was evident when Thornton and Jolie wore each other’s blood in a vile around their necks during their short lived marriage.
Elaborating on the rumors surrounding him and Jolie, Thornton also said, “Here’s the fact of the matter: any time you’re in a high-profile relationship, you know that that question is going to come up forever, and so if you want the honest-to-God truth, here’s the truth: Angelina’s a wonderful woman and one of my best friends in the world. When people split up, people like to make up stories about how they are against each other. Well, this was never true, it never has been and never will be, and I’ll love her until the end of my life and she’ll love me – as friends.”
This isn’t a new tactic of celebrities who try to keep the peace with each other once their public relationships end. Brad Pitt has done it numerous times in regards to Jennifer Aniston. However, Aniston has yet to publicly say Pitt is a close or good friend of her’s and if she has, she’s probably lying just like everyone else.
Billy Bob Thornton made sure not to leave Jolie’s man, Brad, out of his love fest interview. He said, “Brad is a friend of mine, he’s a great guy. I love them both, I love their children and they love mine. And in terms of meeting her at the festival, she’s been very busy, I’ve been very busy. We were both excited when we heard that we were going to be here and then we were even more excited when we found out that one of us was in the competition and one was a special premiere. We haven’t seen each other so far, but I’m sure we will this afternoon.”
Whether or not that meeting has taken place is unknown but you can be sure Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and Billy Bob Thornton will be on their best behaviors when and if they do see each other face to face. Time has sculpted Jolie and Pitt into more than A-listers, they are also role models now. As far as Billy Bob goes, well, he’s Billy Bob. What more do you want?
