Of course Angie gets an A for amicable! Angelina Jolie revealed in a new interview that she's still good friends with her first ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller. Reflecting with Buzzfeed about her illustrious acting career, the Oscar winner said her role as a veritable unknown in the 1995 film Hackers reminded her of "Well, oddly, love."
"That's where I met Jonny," she said of Miller, "who is still a great friend." The mother of six, 38, added, "I think of him when I think of that. Although, I'm sure the movie looks so ancient now, but we had a lot of fun making that."
After Jolie and British actor Miller costarred together in the mostly-forgotten thriller about computer hackers, they eloped in March 1996 in Vegas. During their shotgun ceremony, Jolie famously wore a shirt scrawled with Miller's name in blood. "It's your husband. You're about to marry him," Jolie told the New York Times. "You can sacrifice a little to make it really special."
Three years later, they divorced.
Despite the split nearly two decades ago, Jolie and Elementary star Miller, 41, have remained in touch. She eventually went on to marry Billy Bob Thornton in 2001 (blood-vial necklaces and all), only to divorce in 2003. She and Thornton, 58, remain on good terms, with the "Fargo" actor revealing in an April 2014 interview that they still talk. "She's amazing, amazing," he gushed of the U.N. Goodwill Ambassador.
As the story goes, Jolie eventually ended up with her true love, Brad Pitt, after connecting with him on the set of 2005's "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." In a recent interview with Elle magazine, Jolie mused about her partnership with Pitt, 50. "You get together and you're two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy," she reflected.
"I never thought I'd be in love, I never thought I'd meet the right person," the Maleficent star added. "Having come from a broken home, you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don't look for them."
