Angelina Jolie had led quite a notorious life in Hollywood. Her relationships and activities have always raised buzz in the industry and gained wide public attention. One of the most talked about phases in her life was her marriage with Billy Bob Thornton. While they frequently stated that they were just like any other lovers, the news headlines often showed a different picture.
Angelina Jolie’s love story with Billy Bob Thornton was so weird that at one point the Eternals actress also threatened to physically harm her former husband if he cheated on her. Although Jollie couldn’t save the marriage with her then-husband, her statements attracted quite a lot of eyes.

Angelina Jolie’s not-so-normal love story with Billy Bob Thornton
Angelina Jolie is regularly subjected to wide media attention since a very early age. She attracted further attention after being involved in some of Hollywood’s most controversial relationships. Following her separation from Jonny Lee Miller, she headlined everywhere after marrying Billy Bob Thornton in a surprising turn of events.
Interestingly, the Armageddon star was even engaged to star Laura Dern when he eloped with Jolie. The duo married in a chapel in Las Vegas in 2000. While for Laura Dern it was not a very good moment, Jolie and Thornton were out there busy in some of the wildest forms of PDAs. From sharing one another’s underwear to wearing a vial of each other’s blood on their neck, the couple was simply one of their kind. Angelina Jolie in one of her famous quotes even said that she would have beaten Billy Bob Thornton hard if she caught him cheating.
“I’ve told Billy if I ever caught him cheating, I wouldn’t kill him because I love his children and they need a dad. But I would beat him up. I know where all of his sports injuries are. And I’d beat her, too!”
While it looks like she didn’t get quite successful in doing that as various rumors stated that Thornton cheated on her with his s*x therapist. As expected by the fans, the couple also called it quit real soon but didn’t give any concrete reason for that. Even though they didn’t work out, it was reported that the two stay in touch.

What happened to Angelina Jolie after the Billy Bob Thornton episode?
After a long time in 2004, the Salt actress told Vogue that they were just not the same anymore after a certain time.
“It took me by surprise too because overnight, we totally changed. Because we’re actors, we go away for months at a time and you grow and change separately. I think one day we had just nothing in common. And it’s scary but… I think it can happen when you get involved and you don’t know yourself yet.”
While Angelina Jolie promised the media that she might not get involved in any other relationship for the upcoming seven to eight years, the commitment was soon broken when she met her Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star Brad Pitt.
Once again another Laura Dern moment took place as Brad Pitt was officially married to the FRIENDS star Jennifer Aniston then. The duo popularly known to the media as ‘Brangelina’ got secretly married in 2014. But unfortunately, that also didn’t last for long after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.
