The film’s premiere was one of Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s first public appearances together and they made it memorable by sharing their red carpet pre-premiere activities. During an interview with MTV, the couple were asked what was the most exciting thing they had done individually or together. Thorton said:
“I think it was today. My favorite in a car was today, right before we got here. You want me to be honest with you? We fucked in the car on the way here.

The couple then continued to kiss and cuddle on the red carpet in front of the paparazzi, leaving the media to consume their privacy. In a later interview for US Weekly, Jolie opened up about how in love they were. The actress said:
“The other day we were talking about having one of these heart monitors on me because I’m convinced I’m going to have a heart attack. He kissed me the other day and I almost passed out. I swear on the life of my family. I almost fell.
However, despite the intensity of their relationship, the two did not last. Jolie and Thornton were only together for two years. They separated in 2002 before divorcing in 2003.

The end of Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton
In a 2004 interview with Vogue, Angelina Jolie explained what went so wrong in her relationship with Billy Bob Thornton that they had to split up within 2 years of getting married. The actress said it was because they had both changed as people. According to Jolie:
“It took me by surprise too because overnight we totally changed. Because we’re actors, we go away for months at a time and you grow and change separately. I think one day we didn’t have anything in common anymore. And it’s scary but… I think it can happen when you get involved and you don’t know each other yet. It took me a while to grow up, and I still think I I’m not even close yet. So I had to check myself: don’t even consider a relationship for seven or eight years.”
