Angelina's Anger Over Ex's Christmas Snub

19 December 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Angelina Jolie's rekindled relationship with ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller is off - after the British actor refused to spend Christmas with her in America. The pair, who divorced in 1999 after four years of marriage, began dating again after Jolie split from husband Billy Bob Thornton and Miller from his fiance Lisa Faulkner. They have been spotted enjoying cozy dates together in London, where Jonny lives, and Angelina has been shooting action sequel Tomb Raider II. But, according to sources close to the stars, Jolie has put the brakes on the blossoming romance, after her new beau refused to join her in California for the festive season. A pal told British tabloid the Daily Mirror, "Angelina has her heart set on them going back to LA but Jonny has made it clear he doesn't want to go. She's been bombarding him with calls begging him to change his mind. But he's made it clear he doesn't want to rush anything. Angelina, on the other hand is a very passionate and needy person. She doesn't want to take things slowly and Jonny is one of the few men she feels she can trust." The pair married in 1995 after meeting on the set of movie Hackers. »

Billy Bob Fights for Angelina

16 December 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Billy Bob Thornton is trying to win his estranged wife Angelina Jolie back after splitting with his 23-year-old girlfriend. The movie star, 47, has broken up with model Danielle Dotzenrod, who he has been dating since splitting with Jolie in June, and he's telling pals he wants his wife back. According to friends, he has been calling Angelina, who is filming the Tomb Raider sequel in Europe and writing letters to her in the hope of winning her back. And Dotzenrod knows Thornton means business - she reportedly told a pal, "I can see Billy Bob is still in love with Angelina. He even misses their baby. We were not meant to be." The actor split from his wife when their adopted baby Maddox started taking over her life. A pal says, "Now he's telling friends, `It was tough for me at first, but I realize I was selfish.' He knows it's not going to be easy getting Angie back." But all is not lost, according to America tabloid National Enquirer. Despite the fact the actress is reportedly seeing her ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller in England, she has told friends there, "I still love him, but he broke my heart." »

Angelina and Jonny Back Together?

19 November 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Angelina Jolie is back in the arms of ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller, five months after splitting from fellow actor Billy Bob Thornton. The pair, who married after meeting on the set of 1995 movie Hackers, divorced in 1999 - but friends say they became close again after the end of Jolie's marriage to Thornton and Miller's split from former fiancee, British actress Lisa Faulkner. Angelina recently declared she hoped the two "might find a way back to each other", and her wish has now come true. The couple were spotted smooching over dinner at a swanky London restaurant on Friday. A fellow diner at Claridges Hotel tells British tabloid The Daily Mirror, "They were all over each other. Angelina had draped herself over Jonny and they were giggling away. It awas a bit odd as the restaurant was crowded and people kept walking past them. They seemed oblivious to the fact it was so busy. People were gawping at them." The actress is in the British capital filming Tomb Raider 2. »

Tough Time for Jolie on 'Tomb Raider 2' Set

29 October 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sultry screen siren Angelina Jolie has been feeling the pressure on the set of Tomb Raider 2. Sources report a breakdown in relations between Jolie and director Jan De Bont because he is such a hard taskmaster. A source says, "He's pushing everybody hard, especially the crew, and Angelina feels sorry for them. The pair have a cold, professional relationship. There's no warmth or camaraderie between them." The frosty relationship may stem from the fact Tomb Raider 2 is regarded by many as De Bont's make or break feature, having scored little directorial success since 1996's hurricane flick Twister. »

'Seabiscuit' down to July wire

Ex-Husband Puts Smile Back on Jolie's Face

23 October 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood babe Angelina Jolie's renewed friendship with ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller has "put a smile back on her face". The American star, who filed for divorce from Billy Bob Thornton in July after an intense two-year marriage, is currently in Miller's native Britain filming the sequel to Tomb Raider - and has managed to restore relations with her first husband, who she says she still "loves." Although Miller failed to return Jolie's calls upon arriving in the country two months ago, since his split from his actress fiance Lisa Faulkner last month, the pair have started talking to each other on the phone several times a day. A source reports, "Angelina is on the phone to Jonny all the time now that she's back in London. She was really down in the dumps when she arrived in the UK. Her marriage was over and she had her adopted son Maddox on her own. But re-establishing contact with Jonny has put a smile on her face." And on a recent charity trip to Manchester, Jolie apparently gave her mobile phone to her assistant with strict instructions that she did not want to be disturbed by anyone but Miller. The source adds, "He called up a number of times. She was giggling and joking every time." »

Jolie's Masculine Double

23 September 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Angelina Jolie new body double has a few differences in appearance to the Oscar-winning actress - he's a man! Jolie has been working out so much in readiness to reprise her role as swashbuckling Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider movie Cradle Of Life that when it came to picking a stunt double, one lucky guy was the only person buffed enough to look like her. A source on set - which is being shot on location in Britain - told British tabloid the Daily Mail, "We managed to fit him with a pair of false breasts which didn't look too bad." But it seems there were a few tell-tale signs of gender that couldn't be hidden. The insider adds, "But when it came to Lara's tight fitting trousers there was very little we could do about this guy's shape. His relevant bits were strapped down, and it can't have been very comfortable for him, but with clever camera angles and lighting the audience will never know." »

The luscious Girl, Interrupted star, who is currently filming the Tomb Raider sequel in Europe, split from the Monster's Ball actor earlier this year.

On September 10 and 11, moving men from Northstar Moving Corporation loaded clothes, mirrors, chairs, tables, mattresses, a dresser and numerous boxes - including one marked 'baby's toys' - into two big trucks from the $3.8 million Beverly Hills mansion that Thornton and Jolie bought after they got married in 2002.
