Angelina Jolie Pens Foreword for Billy Bob Thornton Memoir

Angelina Jolie Pens Foreword for Billy Bob Thornton Memoir

Angelina Jolie has written a foreword for “The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts,” an upcoming memoir by her ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton.

The couple split in 2003, but Billy Bob, 56, says the two remain friends and that he’s thrilled about her directorial debut in In the Land of Blood and Honey.

As for what the book’s about, here’s a preview: “There is—and could only ever be—one Billy Bob Thornton: actor, musician, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, and accidental Hollywood badass. In ‘The Billy Bob Tapes,’ he leads us into his Cave Full of Ghosts, spinning colorful tales of his modest (to say the least) Southern upbringing, his bizarre phobias (komodo dragons?), his life, his loves (including his heartbreakingly brief marriage to fellow Oscar winner Angelina Jolie), and, of course, his movie career.”

“The Billy Bob Tapes” will be available on May 15.

  • lurker

    Am going to post here,angie helped an ex nothing wrong with that if a few rotten hens want to write rubbish i will thumb them down

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    I think it is nice that she did that for Billy. It shows Angie is a civilize adult. I doubt Brad has a problem with it. Brad was ok with JLM so why isn’t he ok with BBT.

  • CSW

    I still can believe she married this fugly.

    march will be a busy month for the JPs, fundraising in nola and angie attending the women conference

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    @CSW:

    Looks is not everything. Maybe Angie married him for his brain and talent. Are you a Aniston fan? Sound like it.

  • sandra

    Maybe it’s for a couple of reasons. Billy’s sales go up with Angie’s named connected. However, you know he won’t be telling “there” dirty little sex secrets and drug habits.

    OT

    Exactly. Most of the media keeps up a faux image of Ticky. So this is the only place to read the real truth. As PT post. This is Ticky’s real skin. No the bs Conan and others want people to believe that she has great skin.

  • Too bad

    2003. When she was still a non homewrecking ***

  • http://n/a angierocks

    Angie and Billy are friends I don’t see anything wrong w it.As for Brad and ticky now that’s another story and that ticky thread up looking all silly or trying to be cute pathetic.

  • Just Sayin

    Angie is in a great place of her life with Brad and her children. She is nice to help bbt, we all know no one cares about this book if not for the reason of Angie.

  • lurker

    @Media Wh@re MANiston:
    we talking about loser hags with no brain cells,is best to thumb them down and and talk to their asses directly

  • an opinion

    @Too bad:
    Are you talking about Aniston who broke up a 14 year relationship.

  • jmho

    Usually in a divorce, women tend to be the bitter ones especially the guy left you for another hotter woman. This is why Brad’s ex has been so bitter, they haven’t had good term after the divorce, even Brad’s another ex Gwyneth is still bitter about their breakup, she couldn’t even congratulate Brad’s new twins at the time. For Angie and BBT’s divorce, she didn’t dump him for another man, she divorced him, after a year, she met Brad and fell in love, so she and bbt are in good term.

    =======

    Your life must be empty and boring cos you’ve been on every thread that has Angie/Brad’s name. Get a life loser, even a dog goes for a walk for fresh air.

  • SMH

    BBT is really a loser, coatailing on Angie’s fame.

  • bizzy bee

    Exes need to stop mooching off their famous partner’s name, because Brad and Angie are such class act people, their not going to call BBT and SS on the continuing use of their name for publicity.

    SS PR wants to deflect the conversation unto somebody else but LOL its not gonna work, that’s just her to have someone else do the dirty work while she keeps her hands clean.

  • correction #25

    Angie was divorced/single for at least 2 to3 years prior to meeting Brad. Angie left Billy bob because her priorities in life changed. She grew up and Billy Bob did not.

  • gracie

    Too bad
    =======

    You must be talking about Anuston, homewrecker, bf stealing, bf buying bitter ex wife from hell.

  • of course

    aw, angie’s back on the blood loving train!!

  • PURPLE CHURCH

    HALLOWEEN PARTY TIME!!!!!! HAHAHAHA

    LOVE,
    RICE BOWL!!!!!! HAHAHA GOT REDNECK IN SWING!!!!! HAHAHA

  • not even 2 years

    It should be noted that Angie left Billy Bob a few weeks after she adopted Mad- they didn’t even make to their 2 year anniversary in May. Like Brad & the fat tick, they spent a lot of time apart, not as much, but a lot.

  • PURPLE CHURCH

    MERRY X-MAS BILLY BOY!!!!! HAHAHAHA

    LOVE,
    HEE HAW!!!!!!!! HAHAHA LIKE IT BAD?????!!!! HAHAHA WANT IT BAD????!!!!! HAHAHA WELL IT GOING TO BE!!!!!!! HAHAHA ANYWAY!!!!! HAHAHAHA

  • WanderSLUT

    JUST JARED! SHAME ON YOU FOR PUTTING THIS STORY ON. DID HUVANE AND OLD GRANNY TICKY PAID YOU FOR THIS JUST TO TAKE AWAY ANGIE’S FANS FROM TALKING ABOUT HER IN HER SITE AND YOU WANT US TO BE ON TICKY SITE? WOW! MONEY REALLY WORKS FOR YOU JUST JARED. TICKY REALLY WANTS COMPETITION WITH ANGIE. SHE WANTS HER SITE TO GETS HITS. PLEASE ANGIE FANS, IF YOU SMELL THE PURPOSE OF JUST JARED FOR PUTTING THIS CR*P STORY, DON’T COMMENT ON TICKY’S SITE. ME, I WILL JUST WAIT FOR SUNDAY, THE OSCAR NIGHT. TO JUST JARED, MAY YOUR BAD KARMA BITES YOU FOR LETTING HUVANE MANIPULATE YOUR WEBSITE. JUST JARED, YOU AND THE OTHER SH*T MAGAZINES AND SITES ARE NO DIFFERENCE, ALL ARE RUN BY GREEDY PEOPLE, IT’S ALL ABOUT MONEY. SHAME ON YOU JUST JARED.

  • gracie

    Anuston should take a lesson or two from Angie on how to act with dignity, show class, love and respect to your ex and not be a perpetual jealous bitter lying b!!tch to your ex and his current wife.

  • Kevin

    With everything Angelina does, I love her more and more

  • solecito

    Maybe Brad is OK with it, but I think is inappropriate for her to be involved in her ex-husband’s book. How would Angelina feel if it was the other way around?

  • bled out

    Jennifer is a beautiful woman. I think she is also beautiful on the inside – her heart. She is so sweet and empathetic, not like that crazy vampire. Justin is gorgeous and COOL!! I think he is better looking than Brad, and at least, Jennifer doesn’t make Justin cry in public, like Ange did to Brad in Germany recently. PHuuucking Billy-Bob much? Yeah, I know. He gives you multiples, unlike Brad. BTW, vampire girl would not have all this “goodwill” attention, had she not broken up their marriage. It’s called IMAGE MANAGEMENT. Not much sincerity there. I believe Justin’s intelligence and talent trumps the pitt by a mile. Poor, poor pitt.

  • Maggie

    I dont know what Angelina saw on this man…

  • geez

    BBT is gross. I don’t understand why she married him, not surprised they divorced, same goes to Brad and Aniston, Julia Roberts and that ugly country singer ( what’s his name, i can’t remember). Now Brad and Angie two beautiful people together, has a beautiful family, they look so good together.

  • Forever

    His own daughter killed the baby of a friend. I don’t know if you knew that.

  • Pinkrose

    Angelina needs to leave this bagggage behind. This is the man who did not want to adopt Maddox and join her in her charity work. She is way more gracious than I am. She is too big-hearted!!

  • Marsha

    @gracie: When did her ex marry the Be’ach? Angie is back to trying her luck with Billy. Brad was not happy that she went out to dinner with Billy. In fact he asked her not to. I ca’t wait to see what happens.

  • ManistonISugly

    @Maggie:
    .
    What did angie see in him? Same thing maniston’s bestie laura dern saw in him. Also…Maybe 4 Oscar nominations and an Oscar (what billy has) and what the ugly tv hack of a cheesy soap opera immigrant and her bald short no name middleaged toy boy can only dream of.

  • trt

    People are staying at the old thread. I will be staying with them and telling everybody to go to the old thread for more info and news. Let this one die a quiet death and let’s just continue on with the Brad thread until a better one comes along.

  • Alice

    If Angie can’t forgive her father Jon Voigh, she said she didn’t want to cruel to her father, Angie is very kind. It is ok she helps her ex out on his book.

  • Rainy

    Both Brad and Angie are known for staying graceful and friends with ex’s…whether it is a partner or an ex from a marriage. All of their ex’s speak well about them. This is what class is all about. Remaining friendly and graceful with an ex instead of bitter and combative.

  • Relax

    @Maggie: Probably more than what you’ll see in the rest of your life!!

  • Damsel Jane

    Billy Bob and Angelina are totally getting it on behind Brad’s back. Brad is such a silly fool.
