Angelina Jolie Still Sends Billy Bob Thornton's Son Christmas Gifts

Jolie and Thornton split nearly two decades ago.

Though model weirdo couple Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton (they were accessorizing with each other's blood before it was even cool) called it quits two decades ago, reverberations of this blessed pop culture union are forever.

The latest comes from Thornton's youngest son, 27-year-old Harry James Thornton. The real estate agent is making a name for himself (which, to be fair, is a direct result of his father's celebrity) on E! reality series Relatively Famous: Ranch Rules. Eight celebrity offspring, including Shaquille O'Neal's son and Pat Benatar's daughter, go to work on a ranch — so … The Simple Life with a larger cast?

Anyway, Thornton is making the media rounds and opening up about his relationship with his former stepmother.

"To this day, she still sends me Christmas gifts every year and stuff like that," Thornton told Entertainment Tonight. "I don't talk to her on the phone every day but every now and then we talk."

And, not for nothing, Jolie's involvement in his childhood may have prepared him for his time on the ranch.

"She was so cool," Thornton went on. "She took us camping every week and she rented, like, an RV one time, and we went on a full camping trip."

"She was just so fun for us back when we were, like, younger," Thornton said of his and his siblings' relationship with the actress. "She was a lot of fun."

The elder Thornton was a father of three when he and Jolie wed in 2000. The actor has since remarried and he and wife Connie Angland welcomed daughter Bella in 2004.
