Billy Bob Thornton is speaking out on ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, saying that when it comes to the divorce, it was he who messed up.

In a new interview with ABC’s “Nightline”, the Oscar-winning actor says he blew it with Jolie because he didn’t think he was “good enough for her.”

“She has one way she wanted to live her life and I had another way to live mine…I was just too insecure.”

The 56-year-old actor went so far as to say that compared to Jolie, he felt “like the Phantom of the Opera hiding in the catacombs,” because people “actually said that I didn’t deserve to be with her.”

Like many celebrity relationships, their ever changing levels of fame also didn’t help situations:

“When you’re in a relationship, any two celebrities or whatever, you know, I think that puts on a lot of pressure…When Angie and I got married, during that time, I was more famous than she was to start with and then she becomes this big thing, it’s hard in these relationships.”

So where do the two stand now?  Thornton says that while their marriage may have failed, the two still remain friends:

“We had a great marriage and I chickened out because I didn’t feel good enough…That’s all that happened. It was no big deal, we never hated each other.”
