“She seems, you know, okay to me when I talk to [her]. I don’t talk to her that often though,” Thornton, 61, told Entertainment Tonight at a recent press junket for his new movie Bad Santa 2. “We’re still very good friends, but she’s got her world. I’ve got mine.”
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September, citing irreconcilable differences. Thornton married Jolie in 2000 and the two divorced three years later. However, Thornton told ET that he still spends time with his ex.
“Once in a blue moon we come together,” Thornton said of his current friendship with 41-year-old Jolie. “Every now and then we talk, you know? Whatever. But when people are going through their trials and tribulations I try to leave them alone unless they want to talk to me.”
He added: “In other words, I figure it’s none of my business. Unless someone makes it my business, it’s none of my business.”

“I never felt good enough for her,” the Bad Santa 2 star recently told GQ about their time together. He added that despite many years in Hollywood, he’s “real comfortable around rich and important people.”
“I like how I am,” he said.
In the weeks following their split, Jolie and Pitt, 52, have tangled over custody of their six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.
Jolie wants sole physical custody of the kids, with visitation for Pitt. Pitt is pushing for shared physical custody, as he requested in his court response on Nov. 4.
