Billy Bob Thornton Didn’t Bother to Break Up with Laura Dern Before Marrying Angelina Jolie
Um, maybe at least sending a note to his other fiancé would have been good?!
Billy Bob Thornton was famously engaged to actress Laura Dern when he up and got married to Angelina Jolie, who he met on a movie set, in May 2000. And according to InStyle, he just never bothered to fill Laura in on his plans.
Laura said she “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.”
Angelina and Billy Bob flamboyantly flaunted their relationship in public, trading underpants and each other's blood (which they wore in vials around their neck). Three years later, it was over.
"I never felt good enough for her," he told GQ of Angelina in 2016.
Billy Bob and Laura had an awkward run-in at the 2017 Golden Globes, but they notably avoided eye contact.
“[Angelina's] is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle," he said last year on the HPFA in Conversation podcast. "So that’s really, that’s the only reason we’re probably not still together, maybe. There was a different path in life we wanted to take.”
