Back in the 90s, if there was anything that could possibly eclipse Angelina Jolie's career it was her odd relationship with Billy Bob Thornton. The two had a whirlwind romance which included public make out sessions on the red carpet, over-the-top proclamations about their sexual history, and that one time they wore vials of each other's blood around their necks.

Angelina Jolie was a rising star back then who had her own set of issues to deal with aside from her marriage to Billy Bob Thornton. These days she lives a more settled life with husband Brad Pitt and their six children.

Now that Billy Bob Thornton is enjoying a reinvention thanks to the TV series Fargo, he is opening up about that "pretty crazy" time in his life with Jolie.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Billy Bob explains the vials of blood they wore.

"I mean it was a crazy time. I've never been fond of it. [The] vial of blood is very simple. You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your grannie in and wear it around your neck? She bought two of those."
"She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razorblade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck. From that, we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks. And we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon."
"I still love him dearly and think the world of him and I'm proud to have been his wife for a time. I don't believe in regrets. It's a dangerous habit to get into—it makes you pause in your life if you start thinking back and questioning yourself."
