Angelina Jolie blames herself for her failed marriages to actors JOHNNY LEE MILLER and BILLY BOB THORNTON - because she was too independent to be a successful wife.

The TOMB RAIDER star divorced Miller and Thornton in 1999 and 2003 respectively, and she fears she would still be married if she allowed herself to form a team with her husbands and accepted their help.

She says, "I think I was a good wife to the men I married, and I'm capable of being a very nurturing person, but I also know that I never asked for any help.

"Even with something like buying a home together, I would say, 'I'll take care of my own stuff so that if this breaks apart tomorrow, I know where everything is.' We didn't become a team."
