Billy Bob Thornton’s son opens up about having Angelina Jolie as stepmother

Even though Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton are no longer together, that does not mean she has forgotten all about his youngest son, Harry James Thornton.

The now 27-year-old revealed that Jolie still has him on her mailing list.

“To this day, she still sends me Christmas presents every year and stuff like that,” Harry said Entertainment tonight on Wednesday. “I do not talk to her on the phone every day, but we talk now and then.”

Jolie and Thornton were married from 2000 to 2003. During that time, Jolie served as stepmother to Thornton’s three children – Harry, William, now 28, and Amanda, now 42 – from two separate marriages.

Harry noted that spending time with Jolie as a child helped him prepare for his new reality TV show, “Relatively Famous: Ranch Rules,” in which famous children work as ranch hands.

“She was so cool,” he said. “She took us camping every week, and she rented like a camper once, and we went on an entire camping trip.”

“She was just so funny to us back then when we were, like, younger,” Harry continued. “Like, she was a lot of fun.”

After Jolie and Thornton broke up, the “Eternals” actor remarried to Brad Pitt in 2014 before resigning in 2019. The couple share six children together: Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16 and 13-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

During an interview in June 2018 with HFPA in conversation, reminded Thornton of his three-year marriage to Jolie.

“It was a great time,” he said. “Angie is still a friend of mine and she’s a great person and she’s done so much. She’s making movies that are important to her, whether they succeed or fail, she’s still doing what she believes in. , and I will always respect her for that. “

Thornton noted that he and Jolie broke up because they had “different lifestyles.”

“Hers is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle,” he said. “So it really is, that’s the only reason we’re probably still not together.”

After he divorced Jolie, Thornton married Connie Angland – who is known for making special effects on the 2001 film “The Planet of the Apes” – in 2014. They share a daughter, 17-year-old Bella.
