Angelina Jolie conned ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton into thinking their antiques were modern reproductions because she didn't want to upset his phobia of old decor.

The movie star knew that she would upset her second husband if she came clean and admitted their furniture was antique, because the BAD SANTA star has a famous aversion to old stuff.

She reveals, "I'd say to him, 'It's a reproduction, don't be insane.'

"There was one day I kept saying that 'it's a reproduction, don't be crazy,' and he opened up a drawer and it said, 'Dynamite.' It was made of an old dynamite box, and so I was busted."
