BILLY BOB THORNTON still has faith in the institution of marriage, despite divorcing five times.

The actor's most recent union to Angelina Jolie ended in 2003 - but he insists he is still a true romantic and doesn't rule out stepping down the aisle again with current girlfriend and mother of his one-month-old daughter BELLA, CONNIE ANGLAND.

Thornton tells PAGESIX.COM, "I think marriage is good.

"I've tried to do it, it didn't work out, and then I've moved on. There's no crime in that. I've been married five times, and people think that's some bizarre f***ing thing, and yet I've got buddies who refuse to get married and f**k 15 people a week.

"I'm like, Which is better? At least I was trying."
