While Brad Pitt has been texting his ex Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie has very privately been in contact with her ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton.
"Angie and Billy Bob never actually stopped talking. They have been in contact in some form or another with each other ever since they split," a source exclusively told Radar.
"Recently they have been talking more but her focus at the moment is her charity work and her kids," the insider added.
Meanwhile, as Radar previously reported, Aniston has been going out of her way to help ex-hubby Pitt rebuild his life — both personally and professionally.
"Jen’s slowly accepting him back into her circle and he’s incredibly grateful," an insider told Radar earlier this month.
Pitt, 53, was recently spotted at a charity event in Malibu with Aniston’s best friend, Courteney Cox. "He loved hanging out with her again," said the source.
But two can play that game! Angie's ex Thornton has always been open about his affection for his former flame.
In an interview with GQ magazine last year, 61-year-old Thornton reminisced about his hot-and-heavy (albeit bizarre) relationship with Jolie, from 2000 to 2003, revealing two tattoos he still has dedicated to the famous beauty — one on his right his leg and the other, now covered by an angel, on his arm.
“See, it's just resting there,” he said, pointing to his ink. “You can still see the name.”
But as most Hollywood relationships go, the couple's marriage eventually went down the drain.
"I never felt good enough for her," he confessed, referring to Jolie's endeavors as a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador and other successes. "I'm real uncomfortable around rich and important people."
Of course, Thornton also revealed he's had a celebrity crush on Aniston for years, and sleeping with her has been a "lifelong goal."
