Posted by Adam

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob ThorntonANGELINA Jolie made sure she told ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton all about her double mastectomy before she released the news to the public.

Billy — who was married to Jolie was married to from 2000 – 2003 — says the actress keeps him informed with what’s going on in her life.

“I knew about it before the public knew,” Billy Bob says in the new issue of Life & Style.

“She wanted me to know so I wouldn’t freak out. When you’re great friends with somebody like that…you don’t want to hear it on the news.”

Billy says he and Jolie — who now raises six kids with partner Brad Pitt — still talk regularly.

“She makes you a better person,” he said.

“She’s an amazing person and makes you the best you that you can be.”
