Billy Bob Thornton talked about his short-lived marriage to Angelina Jolie, which ended in 2003 after three eccentric and highly publicized years. The actor suggests in a new interview with GQ that the woman whose blood he carried around in a locket around his neck may have been a little above his pay grade.
“I never felt good enough for her,” he told the publication, which notes that Jolie, who was a goodwill ambassador working with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees at the time, was “always going off to meet with the U.N. people or the president or the adoption agencies, and he just wanted to stay home and watch baseball.”
The couple also received invitations to plenty of A-list Hollywood parties, but Thornton tells GQ: “I’m real uncomfortable around rich and important people.”
GQ adds: “He and Angie are still friends, though, he says. They talk every few months, she’s just so busy with the kids and work and the many houses in the many countries, but the minute they connect it’s like old times (minus phlebotomy and face gnawing).”
