Their brief marriage captured imaginations in the early 2000s.

And Billy Bob Thornton was moved to clear up one of the more outrageous rumors about his three year marriage to Angelina Jolie during an interview with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s HFPA In Conversation podcast.

The vials of each other's blood the couple were rumored to carry around their necks contained just a 'smear' and not the 'bucket of blood around our necks' the media made them out to be, according to the 62-year-old.

The Sling Blade actor said 'a lot' of what was written about the couple wasn't 'as crazy as people wrote about it.'

And the pair are still close according to Thornton.

'Angie is still a friend of mine and she’s a great person,' said the Oscar winner.

Speaking about their split in 2003, the actor said he and Jolie, 'just had different lifestyles.'

'Hers is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle.'

'So, that’s really … the only reason we’re probably still not together, you know, ‘cause [it was] just a different path and life we wanted to take.'

The actor/musician has been married to Connie Angland since 2014, while Jolie is currently in the midst of divorce proceedings from her third husband, Brad Pitt.
