Billy Bob Thornton Says 'I'd Be More Than Happy to Go' to Ex Angelina Jolie's Wedding (VIDEO)
Brad Pitt has revealed he will tie the knot with longtime love Angelina Jolie "soon," so when the save-the-dates finally go out, they can count Jolie's ex Billy Bob Thornton on the VIP mailing list.
Thornton, who wed the superstar mother-of-six in 2000 before they split three years later, has revealed if the invite arrives, he'll be there.
“I’d be more than happy to go, absolutely,” the 56-year-old actor told TMZ.
The once-controversial couple divorced nine years ago, but Thornton and Jolie are still close -- so much so the Maleficent actress even wrote an endearing introduction for his autobiography, The Bolly Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts, earlier this year.
"He [Thornton] has an unmatchable wit and can make you laugh until your face hurts," said Jolie in the book's prelude. "I know one thing: The world would certainly be a hell of a lot more dull if that man weren't in it."
Thornton has also returned the kind words of praise for Jolie, 37, who got engaged to Pitt in April after seven years of dating.
“She’s a wonderful person. We’re great friends. There was never any bad blood,” the Bad Santa star previously told Huffington Post.
“That was something people made up. She and I laugh about it," he added.
As for the big day itself, the 'I do' date is still under wraps, but Pitt told PEOPLE it will definitely be a family affair: "Just family, keep it simple."video above to hear what he has in mind.
