- Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton were married for three years.
- They were known for wearing necklaces with each other's blood in them.
- Thornton told People that they the jewelry was blown out of proportion by the media and were very "simple."
Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton famously wore vials of each other's blood while they were married.
But Thornton, 62, told People that the media made a bigger deal out of their blood necklaces than there needed to be.
"The necklaces were a very simple thing, 'Hey let's poke our fingers with a pen and smear a little blood on there and when we're away from each other we'll wear the necklace,'" he said. "It was that easy. But by the time it came out in the press it sounded like we were wearing a bucket of blood around our necks."
This story differs slightly from what he told The Hollywood Reporter during a 2014 interview.
Then, he said Jolie, 43, had gotten clear lockets for them.
"She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razor blade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets, and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter's baby hair in one," he said.
But he did say that the perception at the time was over-exaggerated.
"From that we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks," he said of how the reports made it seem at the time.
