Outsiders may be stunned by the news that Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton wed in Las Vegas over the weekend. But Jolie's comments for a Talk magazine interview leave little doubt about her feelings. "I'm madly in love with this man and will be till the day I die," she says in the May issue, which also reveals that that "Billy Bob" tattoo she is said to be sporting is, in fact, real. The two met while filming 1999's "Pushing Tin." At the time, Thornton was dating Laura Dern.
