WHO Did Angelina Jolie Tell About Her Mastectomy Before She Went Public?!

Angelina Jolie famously underwent a preventive double mastectomy earlier this year, and although she publicly announced it in an OpEd piece for The New York Times, she obviously shared the news with those close to her before the article was published. But one of those people who knew in advance might surprise you — her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton!

The actor said that Angie filled him in on the details of her condition so he wouldn’t “freak out” when he read it in the media. Things get even more surprising though, because Billy Bob even admitted that he and Angelina still keep in touch and talk regularly! The couple split in 2002 after a two year marriage, but it looks like this one didn’t end in bad blood.

Billy Bob had a lot of great things to say about his ex in the interview — find out what else he dished on in the video below:
