Angelina Jolie Must Be Thrilled That Billy Bob Thornton is Making a Movie About Her

When most people break up with someone there are a few months of Facebook relationship demotions, awkward run-ins and a feverish return to the gym so that you can look hotter first before it all fades into an unpleasant memory. But not so for celebrities, who can be reminded of their past mistakes on an ongoing global basis for the rest of their natural lives. Take Angelina Jolie who will no doubt be thrilled to learn that her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton has decided to make a movie inspired by his time with her. Entitled And Then We Drove, it's being positioned as an "ethereal" story about a man who picks up a "wild woman" while on a road trip and learns a thing or two about life and love – which sounds like a mix between a Reese Witherspoon rom-com and Rochelle, Rochelle aka "a young girl's strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk."

"And Linda Marciano's story can happen to anyone. And that's my role, I believe, in the movie to say that.
