Is Ange Hollywood's Loneliest Celebrity?

Holed up in her home with just her kids, the once vivacious star has turned into a recluse

After all, the 45-year-old’s been married to Billy Bob Thornton, dated actress Jenny Shimizu and has been linked to the likes of Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp throughout her time at the top of the A-list.
