It’s been 10 years since their bizarre ill-fated marriage but Billy Bob Thornton still can’t stop talking about Angelina Jolie!

The Pushing Tin star opened up to Anderson Cooper on the upcoming episode of his talk show about the high-profile romance that ended in March 2002 when Jolie adopted Maddox in Cambodia.

“Are you guys still friends?” asked Cooper.

“Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. Absolutely. We’ve always been friends,” replied Thornton, who was engaged to actress Laura Dern when he was swept off his feet by the beautiful Lara Croft: Tomb Raider star.

“See in the press ladies and gentleman sometimes if you get a divorce everyone assumes it was nasty and it’s not always. It’s not that I haven’t had a couple of nasty ones, but this was not one of them,” he explained.

Thornton and Jolie’s weird relationship, which included them wearing vials of each other’s blood around their necks and eccentric displays of affection, was the 56-year-old Oscar winner’s fifth marriage. He is currently in a relationship with makeup effects crew member Connie Angland, and the couple has a daughter together.

“Angie and I are great friends, we always have been and we talk on a pretty regular basis,” revealed The Bad News Bears star, who was on Anderson to promote his recently published memoir titled The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts, which Angelina wrote the introduction for.

“I asked her and Robert Duvall and Dwight Yoakam,” explained Thornton. “They wanted people who have known me a long time and worked with me to comment and she was kind enough.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Billy Bob admitted last week that he was to blame for the break down of his short-lived marriage to Brad Pitt’s fiancé.

“I blew it because I didn’t think I was good enough for her. She has one way she wanted to live her life and I had another way to live mine,” he told ABC’s Nightline. “I was just too insecure.”
