The thespian tandem, who played marrieds in last year's Pushing Tin, swapped vows for real in a no-frills Vegas ceremony Friday, the Associated Press reports. An official at the Clark County (Nevada) Marriage License Bureau confirms the duo did take out a license and were officially betrothed in Sin City.
The not-quite-storybook wedding went down about 3:30 Friday afternoon at the Little Church of the West on the Las Vegas Strip, and lasted all of 20 minutes, the chapel owner says. The bride and groom were all dudded up in, um, jeans.
For those keeping score at home, this makes marriage number five for Thornton, 44, and number two for Jolie, 24.
Billy Bob's last matrimonial foray infamously imploded in 1997, when soon-to-be ex-wife Pietra first filed for divorce, then filed a lawsuit claiming the actor is a manic depressive who, when unmedicated, punched, head-butted, shoved, pushed, choked and threatened to kill her. She also got a restraining order against him. Billy Bob disputed the claim and got his own restraining order against her. The suit's still pending.
Jolie, who's the daughter of Jon Voight, married British actor Jonny Lee Miller ( best known as one of the smack junkies in Trainspotting) in '96. They divorced last year.
Before falling for each other, Billy Bob had a long fling with Laura Dern and Angelina was tight with Timothy Hutton (she apparently digs the older man thing). She also has some weird fixation with her brother, wannabe actor-director Jamie Voight, but some things are best left unmentioned.
And despite the 20-year age difference, the two do have something in common. They both have Oscars--he collected one for writing 1996's Sling Blade, she picked up a Best Supporting Actress in March for Girl, Interrupted.
