Now Billy in his interview revealed what was exactly in them. He tells HFPA In Conversation podcast that it was not as big as what the media made it be at that time.
He said, "The necklaces were a very simple thing. They let's poke our finger with a pin and smear a little on there, and when we're away from each other, we'll wear the necklace."
He further stated while reminiscing about his marriage to Jolie, "That was that easy, but by the time it came out in the press, it sounded like we were wearing a bucket of blood around our necks. That was a great time."

He stated, "And I remember our time together has really been great. We just had different lifestyles. Her's is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle. So that's really, that's the only reason we're probably not still together."
