After raising eyebrows with their whirlwind wedding, Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie have bought the first house they looked at together. ”We’re kind of spontaneous people,” says Thornton. ”We saw this house and it was like, ‘Okay, we’ll take that one.”’ The 11,000-square-foot spread has a butler’s pantry, pool, and spa. Thornton, who’s recording two albums, bought the house from ex-Guns N’ Roses rocker Slash, and says the basement sound studio was a big draw for him. And for Jolie? ”She saw that there was a kitchen in the bedroom,” he says. ”You can watch TV [in bed] all day, then walk three feet to the kitchen.” Sounds like matrimonial bliss.
