Angelina Jolie Pens Foreword for Billy Bob Thornton Memoir
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.
