‘To this day, she still sends me Christmas gifts every year and stuff like that,’ Harry said. ‘I don’t talk to her on the phone every day but every now and then we talk.’

Billy Bob shares Harry with former Playboy model Pietra Dawn Cherniak, whom he was married to from 1993 until their divorce in 1997 amid her claims that he had abused her in front of their children.

Thornton and Jolie first starred together in 1999’s Pushing Tin before their whirlwind courtship. After only two months together, the couple wed in 2000.

Harry gushed that ‘she was so cool’ to him and his siblings.

Still close: ‘To this day, she still sends me Christmas gifts every year and stuff like that,’ Harry said. ‘I don’t talk to her on the phone every day but every now and then we talk’

‘She took us camping every week and she rented, like, an RV one time, and we went on a full camping trip,’ he recounted.

‘She was just so fun for us back when we were, like, younger. Like, she was a lot of fun.’ 

In addition to Harry, 27, Thornton also shares William Thornton, 28, with Cherniak. The Sling Blade star, who has been married six times, shares his daughter Amanda Brumfield with his first wife, Melissa Lee Gatlin, and he shares daughter Bella Thornton, 17, with his current wife Connie Angland.

Prior to starting his relationship with Jolie, Thornton had been engaged to Laura Dern, whom he dated for two years.

Late in their relationship, Jolie adopted her son Maddox from Cambodia on her own, and she separated from Thornton three months later in 2002.

In a 2004 profile for Vogue, the Changeling star described how her marriage fizzled out, seemingly ‘overnight.’

‘It took me by surprise, too, because overnight, we totally changed. I think one day we had just nothing in common,’ she explained. ‘And it’s scary but … I think it can happen when you get involved and you don’t know yourself yet.’

Fun stepmom: Harry also revealed that Angelina would take the kids camping ‘ever week.’ She and Billy Bob only dated for two months before marrying in 2000. They separated in 2002 and divorced the following year; seen together in 2000

Harry was looking back on his time with his stepmother while promoting his new nepotism-themed reality series Relatively Famous: Ranch Rules, which premiered on E! on Wednesday.

The series follows eight celebrity children as they give up the conveniences afforded them by their parents’ wealth to temporarily live and work on a ranch. 

The series is inspired by Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, which featured a pre-Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s Kourtney Kardashian as part of the cast.

In addition to Harry, the children of David Hasselhoff, Martin Lawrence, Eazy-E, Ray Parker Jr. Billy Gunn, Shaquille O’Neal and Pat Benatar are featured. 

Harry revealed that his famous father gave him some simple advice before joining the series: ‘He said, “Don’t do anything embarrassing.”‘
