Jonny Lee Miller: I’m still friends with ex-wife Angelina Jolie
Jonny Lee Miller is "still friends" with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie.
The British actor and the Hollywood beauty married in March 1996 after they met and fell in love on the set of movie 1995 movie ‘Hackers’ before they separated just 18 months later and got divorced in February 1999.
Although it didn’t work out for them as husband and wife, Jonny, 44, insists he and Angelina, 41, have remained pals and still speak.
Quizzed in an interview with website Stuff.co.nz if he is still in touch with the ‘Salt’ actress, he spilled: "Yeah – we’re still friends."
And Jonny – who has been married to actress-and-model Michele Hicks in 2008 – admits when they were together it wasn’t a big deal to the world because they were both relatively unknown in their careers, unlike her relationship, marriage and subsequent break-up from Brad Pitt.
The ‘T2 Trainspotting’ star said: "There wasn’t one [a big deal], because we were both completely unknown. Angie wasn’t … it was pre all that."
When asked if the pair were able to have a normal relationship, he replied: "Oh, yes."
Jonny always talks fondly of his romance with Angelina and recently admitted he has "no regrets" about tying the knot with the Hollywood star.
He said: "There are no regrets and no bitterness. Marriage was something that didn’t work out, and I had to make the decision sooner or later. I decided to make it sooner."
And Angelina – who was also briefly married to ‘Fargo’ actor Billy Bob Thornton – has only fond memories of her relationship with the ‘Elementary’ actor, admitting the pair had "a lot of fun" on the set of cult classic ‘Hackers’.
She previously said: "That’s where I met Jonny, who is still a great friend. I think of him when I think of that. Although, I’m sure the movie looks so ancient now, but we had a lot of fun making that."
