Billy Bob Thornton is selling the mansion he previously shared with ex-wife Angelina Jolie for $10 million.

The 57-year-old actor - who was married to the 'Salt' star from 2000 to 2003 - has listed the Beverly Hills home for sale at $9.995 million, 12 years after paying Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash just $3.75 million for the property.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Spanish-style abode boasts nine bedrooms and eight bathrooms and it could be ideal for a health-conscious individual as it features a gym, swimming pool, spa and a tennis court.

Musicians keen to follow in the footsteps of Billy - who began his career as a singer/songwriter and has released three albums before starring in hit movies 'A Simple Plan' and 'Bad Santa' - by making good use of the Californian home's recording studio.

A two-story living room is one of the main features of the mansion, which includes a library where the director and screenwriter will have no doubt spent many an hour, and the 11,012-square-foot property - which was built in 1929 - also has the looks thanks to the fountains in its half-acre outdoor gated area.

Since Billy and Angelina's split in 2003, he has been in a relationship with makeup effects crew member Connie Angland - with whom he has a daughter, Bella, and resides in California - while the 37-year-old actress is currently engaged to Brad Pitt and the couple raise Maddox, 11, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
