Angelina Jolie once admitted that she has just a "few" girlfriends—but that doesn't mean she's lonely. In fact, Brad Pitt's fiancée is reportedly still close friends with her ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton. Your Tango asked Thornton if he's still in touch with his former flame, to which he replied, "Of course."

"She's amazing, amazing," the 58-year-old Fargo star said in a recent interview, published Apr. 15. "She's got so much energy and so much goodness in her, and we check in on each other all the time."

According to Thornton, "She makes sure I'm doing okay [and] I make sure she's doing okay."

Jolie, 38, hasn't publicly confirmed that she has recurring private conversations with Thornton. To the contrary, in a January 2012 Marie Claire cover story, she said Pitt was "really the only person I talk to."

Perhaps they've rekindled their relationship since that interview. It wouldn't be too surprising, given that both Jolie and Thornton become more family-oriented since their 2002 breakup. The Maleficent star has six kids with Pitt—Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 7, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 5. Thornton, meanwhile, has been dating Connie Angland since 2003. They have a daughter, Bella, 10. The Bad Santa star also has three children—Amanda, William and Harry—from prior relationships.
