The "Monster's Ball" star and Jolie ended their three-year marriage in 2003, and both went on to remarry, but they still talk and see each other as much as possible.
"We're good friends," Billy Bob said at the Tribeca TV Festival in New York on Friday, September 13. "We've been friends for years and years and years. So we keep up with each other. She's not in town a lot, so we don't see each other much, but we talk".
Thornton is currently married to his sixth wife, Connie Angland, while Jolie split from her third husband, Brad Pitt, in 2016.
