Billy Bob Thornton married Angelina Jolie under rather unusual circumstances – the officially different and quadruple-divorced 45-year-old and 20 years younger beauty organized a spontaneous ceremony at the Little Church chapel in Las Vegas. The bride wore jeans and a gray t-shirt, and the bride wore a colored shirt. The first photos of this ceremony did not reach the media until several years later. The details of the wedding became public thanks to the reverend who gave them the sacrament and willingly spoke to journalists.
