After the wedding, Dern commented that she “left our home to work on a movie, and while I was away, my boyfriend got married, and I’ve never heard from him again.”

    One would say that there must have been a lot of passion between them. Well, there certainly was. Reportedly Jolie and Thornton couldn’t keep their hands off of each other while walking the red carpet at the premiere of ‘Gone in 60 Seconds‘. “I think it was today. My favorite one in a car was today, just before we got here. What is this MTV? Well, here’s… You want me to be honest with you? We f***ed in the car on the way here,” Thornton had said.

    The relationship between Jolie and Thornton came to an end in the summer of 2002. The couple didn’t comment on their separation at the time. Everyone came to know later that the reason for the divorce was infidelity. “It took me by surprise, too, because overnight, we totally changed. I think one day we had just nothing in common. And it’s scary but… I think it can happen when you get involved and you don’t know yourself yet.” Jolie told Vogue.
