Connie Angland is Billy Bob Thornton’s wife. See photos of the actor’s longtime girlfriend-turned spouse and get the details on how the couple tied the knot secretly months ago. As is always the case, the wedding announcement, long after the fact, is making headlines.
Yes, the 59-year-old Billy Bob Thornton, former husband of Angelina Jolie, is a married man once again. He dated his new bride, the 49-year-old makeup and costume artist Connie Angland, for twelve years, and the couple has long been a fixture on the red carpet. Well, now a dozen years later we have a new twist to the story.
It’s the new trend, these secret weddings, and half of the amazement is how one keeps such news so private so long. Bravo and more power to them. People magazine broke the news, quoting from a statment from Thorton’s rep. The couple were married on October 22nd in a private ceremony attended by family at their Los Angeles home. It marks Thornton’s fifth trip down the aisle.
But the marriage that most lingers in public mind is of course, that to Angelina Jolie whom he divorced in 2003; they got married in 2000 after meeting on the set of ‘Pushing Tin.’ And of course, as we knew, it was on yet another movie set, ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith,’ that Jolie met Brad Pitt who divorced Jennifer Aniston. The soap opera-ish circumstances are still talked about as if hot news, more than a decade later.
Meanwhile, getting much less attention, Thornton began dating Angland since about that time; they also met on a movie set, ‘Bad Santa.’ Their daughter, Bella, was born in 2004.
Now there is renewed interest in the Connie Angland biography details as well as the pictures. What we know according to online sources is very sketchy even after so many years. She is an actress with a few screen credits including the original Men in Black and its sequel, as well as the 2001 ‘Planet of the Apes.’
