Wait, what?

In a candid new interview, Billy Bob Thornton surprisingly confessed he’d enjoy one day working with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie‘s recently estranged husband, Brad Pitt.

“This might surprise people, but I’d love to do a movie with Brad Pitt. I think we’d be great together. We’d play a couple of Southern guys,” the 61-year-old actor told Playboy.

In another recent interview, Billy Bob revealed Angelina is doing well in the wake of her separation from Brad. “She seems, you know, okay to me when I talk to [her]. I don’t talk to her that often though,” he told [Entertainment Tonight](http://www.etonline.com/news/202682billybobthorntonsaysexwifeangelinajolieseemsokamidbradpittdivorcedramaexclusive/). “We’re still very good friends, but she’s got her world. I’ve got mine.”
