Angelina Jolie is clearly on good terms with ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton. The couple, who were married for three years, had a very public (and affectionate) relationship. From vials of blood to romps in limousines, the world knew all the gritty little details of Angelina and Billy Bob's love.

Many years and many, many children later (for Angelina), the couple is now on good terms.

In fact, Angelina Jolie is lending her intimate knowledge of Billy Bob Thornton and has penned the foreword to his new memoir, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts.

Though fans will have to wait until the book hits shelves on May 15 to hear what Jolie has to say about her second husband, a preview of the book that gives a detailed description of the memoir has been released, according to The Daily Mail.

There is-and could only ever be-one Billy Bob Thornton: actor, musician, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, and accidental Hollywood b*****, it reads.

In 'The Billy Bob Tapes,' he leads us into his Cave Full of Ghosts, spinning colourful tales of his modest (to say the least) Southern upbringing, his bizarre phobias (komodo dragons?), his life, his loves (including his heartbreakingly brief marriage to fellow Oscar winner Angelina Jolie), and, of course, his movie career.

This newest news comes on the heels of a report that Thornton is planning to make a film about his whirlwind romance with the beautiful Jolie. The two married in 2000 in Las Vegas after going public with their relationship a mere two months earlier. The couple split in 2003.

Clearly there is no bad blood. In 2010, Thornton said of Jolie, We talk every now and then. She seems to be doing very well directing her own movie, which I am so proud of her for. She's real smart, and very creative, and I think it's a great job for her.

The film is set to be titled And Then We Drove. It is described as an ethereal road movie and will shoot sometime this year. There has been no word on who will play Jolie.

Thornton said the film is about a guy who's on a road trip and picks up this girl along the way, and what happens to them. It's about the question of life: 'What is this? Where do I fit in?'
