Why Angelina Jolie and Ex-Husband Jonny Lee Miller are Back in Touch

By Maolen E. / 2017.04.20

Angelina Jolie has once again hit the headlines – this time it's related to her ex-husband, Jonny Lee Miller.

The 41-year-old actress has reportedly reconnected with her ex-husband, apparently raising eyebrows among her friends by spending time with the latter despite knowing he is currently married to actress Michele Hicks.

“[Angelina Jolie]’s working hard to build a social circle and she’s got a huge amount of respect for Jonny,” an insider explained to Radar Online on April 19, Wednesday. “[Jonny Lee Miller] is mainly New York-based now, but still spends much of his time in the United Kingdom and Angie’s been picking his brain ahead of her move.”

Jolie and Miller, who first met on the set of the 1995 film “Hackers,” got married in March 1996, only to divorce in February 1999. Though the relationship ended for good, the pair stayed in touch and on good terms with each other.

Back in 2014, Jolie called Miller a “solid man and a solid friend.” She said, “[Miller] is still a great friend. I think of him when I think of that [‘Hackers’]. Although, I'm sure the movie looks so ancient now, but we had a lot of fun making that.”

Currently, Miller is happily married to actress Michele Hicks, whom he shares one son with, Buster Timothy. Jolie, on the other hand, is entangled in a bitter divorce and custody battle with Brad Pitt.

Despite their issues, the “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” actress still considers the 53-year-old actor a great father to their six children, reiterating that they will always be a family no matter what happens.

“We are focusing on the health of our family,” E! News quoted Jolie as saying. "So we will be stronger when we come out of this because that's what we're determined to do as a family.”
