Angelina Jolie has revealed she is still friends with ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller.

The Maleficent star admitted she has only fond memories of 1995 movie Hackers, which they starred in together.

Asked by Buzzfeed how she feels about the film, she said: "Well, oddly, love.

"That's where I met Jonny, who is still a great friend. So I think of him when I think of that. Although, I'm sure the movie looks so ancient now, but we had a lot of fun making that."

The couple were married in March 1996 before separating 18 months later and were divorced in February 1999.

Angelina revealed her 1993 sci-fi film Cyborg 2, in which she played a robot assassin who learns human emotions, made her sick to her stomach.

"Oh, I threw up. I saw it and I threw up. Just nausea. But the kickboxing was fun," she recalled.

"It was the first time I was sent to do kickboxing. But I was 17 and I think I thought I was making a real movie, which is odd, since there's a scene when I'm decapitated and talking... as one does. But, yeah, I saw it and got really sick. I just remember my brother Jamie holding me and saying, 'It's going to be all right'."

As for her Oscar-winning performance in Girl, Interrupted, Angelina said: "I really, genuinely thought I was the only character who was sane in the entire film. And if you watch it closely, that's exactly how I was playing it:

"I am just the only sane person here. I was actually almost upset when people said I was so good at playing insane because I never thought she was insane. She was just incredibly honest, which, I guess, made her seem crazy."
