Five-times wed Billy Bob Thornton loves marriage because it offers friendship after sex.

The actor, who split from his fifth wife Angelina Jolie last summer (02), admits he's hooked on marriage and isn't ruling out saying 'I do' for a sixth time.

He says, "Sex you can get anytime. Just call up one of your regulars. I like the friendship in a marriage. I am an extremist. I was never very good at stopping at a blow job."

Thornton confesses that he came close to finding perfect happiness with TOMB RAIDER star Jolie - because she was the first partner to take his phobias and predictions seriously.

He recalls, "One night I woke up after dreaming that the house was on fire. She put together a bag and we went to the SUNSET MARQUIS and stayed three nights."
