Billy Bob Thornton prefers "slow" sex.

The 'Faster' actor - who has been married five times, and whose wives have included Angelina Jolie and Cynda Williams and Playboy model Pietra Dawn Cherniak - claims that fast-paced modern society has even extended to the bedroom and complains he finds "quickies" unsatisfying.

He said: "Quickies are overrated. Sex is always better when it's done slowly."

Though Billy Bob, 55, plays a policeman with drug problems in his latest movie 'Faster', he insists he no longer uses illegal substances himself because he is so terrified of the repercussions.

He told the German editon of Playboy magazine: "I don't even smoke pot. I get palpitations if I smoke a joint and I start imagining the FBI is after me. I haven't touched drugs for 30 years now."

The actor also has an aversion to modern technology, claiming he doesn't own a cell phone and has no idea how to use the internet.

He said: "Modern technology robs our lives of their heart and soul. I write everything by hand."
