Thornton is married, however, to Connie Angland and has been with her for 14 years.
Here’s everything you need to know about Thornton relationship with Angland, who he married after divorcing Angelina Jolie.

They kept the nuptials a secret and only announced their marriage months later.

In 2004, the couple welcomed their daughter Bella. This is Thornton’s fourth and Angland’s first child. According to People, Bella likes insects and reading.

3. They Both Work in the Entertainment Industry
Thornton is an Oscar-winning actor known for his work in Armageddon, Friday Night Lights and the TV version of Fargo.
Angland is a puppeteer and costume artist who has worked with special effects crews on movies such as Men in Black, Men in Black II, Stigmata and Planet of the Apes.
According to IMDB, they met on the set of Bad Santa in 2003, the sequel of which Thornton just finished production on.
4. They Began Dating Shortly After Thornton’s Split From Angelina Jolie
Thornton has been married six times.
One of those marriages was to actress Angelina Jolie who he met on the set of Pushing Tin in 1999. Jolie is almost 20 years younger than Thornton.
They were married for two years before Jolie filed for divorce in August of 2002, according to People.
People also claims that Angland and Thornton began dating in 2003, shortly after his split from Jolie. Which make sense since Bad Santa came out in 2003 and was likely filmed in 2002. One of the first appearances they made as a couple was in May, 2004 at Cannes, shortly before welcoming their daughter in September.
5. He May Have Cheated on Her With Amber Heard
Thornton and Amber Heard worked together on the film London Fields in 2015.
Johnny Depp, Heard’s estranged husband, recently made claims that Heard cheated on him with Thornton, and cut off the tip of his finger after he accused her of cheating, according to Us Weekly.
However, Thornton, who is now 61, told TMZ on Tuesday, August 16, those remarks are “completely false.” He is firmly denying any cheating with Heard, who filed for divorce from Depp earlier this year.
