Angelina Jolie has congratulated her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton on his new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, by taking out a full-page advertisement in a trade publication.

Thornton received a star on the Tinseltown walkway today (07OCT04), and has been honoured by a range of studios and professionals with congratulatory ads in DAILY VARIETY.

But most noteworthy of all was a special message from Jolie.

The sexy actress, who split from the MONSTER'S BALL star in 2002, writes, "Billy, I love your brilliant mind... Congratulations! With love and respect always, Angie."

Thornton's Bad Santa co-star Bernie Mac writes in his own full page ad, "You deserve it! There is no BADDER SANTA than you!"
