‘Sex scenes made marriage tough,’ says Angelina Jolie’s ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton

Angelina Jolie with then-husband Billy Bob Thornton at theActor Billy Bob Thornton says filming sex scenes made his marriage to Angelina Jolie tough.

The actor was wed to the Hollywood beauty from 2000 to 2003, during which time he filmed ‘Monsters Ball’ – featuring explicit scenes with Halle Berry – which put pressure on them both. He told The Sun newspaper: ”If you are an actor, even doing a Disney movie or cartoon voices, you could still be away from each other for six months.

”Look how it applied to me. I go away and do a film like ‘Monster’s Ball’ with a very explicit sex scene with Halle Berry. She is one of the most beautiful women in the world and I am talking on the phone to my wife, and she says, ‘What have you been doing today?’ And I say, ‘Oh, I did that sex scene with Halle Berry.’ You are then asked if you actually touch her. I say, ‘I had to – it’s in the scene’

”Other people’s situations are hard, with areas of doubt. But if you are a thousand miles from home on a film set simulating sex with a beautiful woman, it’s even tougher.”

    That’s the truth!
    Let me get this straight though, the sex scenes put a strain on his marriage and they eventually split up.
    Jolie then went ahead to film Mr&Mrs Smith with Pitt and they had a sex scene. Months later, Viola! Pitt’s marraige collasped.

    Oh, the monster called “Movie sex scenes”, splitting up “happy” couples since the inception of Hollywood.
