One of Angelina Jolie’s Exes Revealed Super-Rare Details About Her Wild Child Days

Before there was Brad, and before there was Billy, there was Jonny. Many forget that Angelina Jolie was married for the first time back in 1996 to a man named Jonny Lee Miller. While their relationship has remained on the more private side since they divorced, Miller just revealed some super-rare details about what they’d do for fun.

In a recent interview with Radio X via People, he was asked how far he’s gone to prove himself to an ex, to show he can be their kind of daring and fun. (We’ve all been there.) However, his answer took many by surprise when he said he proved himself to an ex with one act: “I jumped out of an airplane.”

“It wasn’t my idea,” he said, noting that he was “dating a young lady called Angelina” at the time. “She said, ‘Let’s do something exciting this weekend. Why don’t we go to Hemet, which is just outside L.A., and jump out of an airplane.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, sounds great.’ She is cool as a cucumber. Fearless, that woman.”

It’s quite wonderful that he has such sweet things to say about Jolie after their divorce, and it shows that exes can still be amicable with one another. And we also love that they truly live their wild child days to the fullest together!

So, for those who don’t know, Miller and Jolie met on the set of the 1995 film Hackers. A year after meeting, they tied the knot in 1996. (This was the wedding where Jolie wore rubber pants and a white T-shirt with Jonny’s name written on it in her blood for their wedding.)

They finalized their divorce in 1999 but remained good friends throughout it all, as you can see.
