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.

    @solecito:

    Honey that won’t ever happen..See you have to read a book maybe before you write a book. Brad will never have to make that decision because Aniston can’t write. and Angie and BBT have been friendly and Brad too. Just because Brad married a fool that has fans that can’t let go of the fact that he moved on and is happy doesn’t mean Angie has the same problem.

    Angie never had a problem with Jennifer. Didn’t care if she and Brad were friends or not. Aniston is the one that had the problem with Angie. Then and now. So if you don’t care about someone and they mean nothing to you.. I don’t see her caring about Brad talking or doing whatever. They are together and happy. Happy people don’t live in the past.

    YOU may need to grow up a bit.

    I couldn’t stand BBT then, i can’t stand him now either. Anyway so glad Angelina woke up and left him. I am sure Brad is ok with Angelina writing foreword for BBT. If one of Brad’s ex asks him to write foreword, I am sure Brad will do it too.

    Just because Aniston contiues gruges forever does not mean everyone has to. Brad and Angelina are firends with BBT. Angelina spend 15 minutes writing a forward. Not the end of the world.
    …………….
    Seven years and 6 guys later the fact that you jenhags are still trying to find a guy to live up to Brad is pathetic. Aniston is happy with a balding guy whose body is disproportionate and who is trying to act like he is from the streets of NY . If he were that interesting and COOL than it would not taken bedding Aniston for him to get of the D list.

    what dinner?
    seems the only way angelina contacts billy is writing forwards? lol

    she wrote or took out a piece in a L.A newspaper, now a writing a forward for a book, probably sent by e-mail, yet no face to face meeting, no dinner in berlin then they were both there, and BBT was not invited to do any segment on “a place in time” film??/ not even in the US?

    hummmmmmmmmmm

    they are not true friends, just civil enough.

    lol Says:

    Ticky hens should stop reading tabloids which rotten their brains.lol, Gossipcop debunked the lie by NE, Angie never intended to meet BBT and they never met in Berlin. Hens should go watch videos of Brad rubbing Angie’s butt and Angie kissing Brad in Berlin. Get some reality hens. lol.

    # 38 solecito , it’s a fcuking book. There is nothing wrong with helping an ex who sings your praises and done nothing to tear you down. Being civil and friendly with your ex is not a crime, it is actually good. It shows Angie has the confidence to maintain a friendly relationship with an ex and still moving on with her life. Just because you’re no longer involved in a relationship with someone does not mean you cannot help them with their career when they need your help, especially, if that ex has done nothing or said anything negative to hurt or damage your career. Brad is a grown man and not insecure. If any of his ex acted respectfully and not be a b!!tch to Angie and their kids, I don’t see why he should not help them with their career or be friendly with them. Angie is not the jealous type, I don’t think she will mind at all.

    Yeah, I saw it at the time it came out. What the guy who wrote it didn’t say is that none of the other 5 have attempted to become movie stars because they know they can’t carry a movie by themselves and are best suited for tv. Ticky’s ego refuses to believe that she’ll NEVER be her ex-husband’s equal, but even worse, she’ll never be ANGIE’S equal. Ticky knows damned well that the only reason she got major co-starring roles during Friends is because of Brad. She knows it, the other 5 Friends actors know it and Hollywood knows it. The media know it, too, they’re just too chickenshite to say it. A tv actress with her modest “talents” would not normally get a call to co-star opposite an A-list movie actor at his peak. Yet Ticky got movies with Jim Carrey, Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn. Everything else tanked. Her only other hit has come courtesy of an old friend – another A-list actor. If she’s attached to a project first you don’t see A-list actors signing on to work with her. Hell, you don’t even see B-list actors doing it. She got lucky and married above herself – and we’re all still suffering for Brad’s weed habit and bout of depression.

    BBT is back on the news because of Angelina again. How sweet of her. Ewwwwwwwww

    umm Says:

    I smell desperation from BBT, he hasn’t worked for years, has only one movie out this year. He probably needs the book sales to pay his bills. Angelina is such a better person than I am.

    I know, like if it was to humiliate Brad.

    ==========

    You’re the stupid one, not Brad. You live in a world of hate and envy and it consumes you. Grow up and be an adult, enrich your soul, we don’t all have to be like Anuston — being hateful, a liar and so damn evil and nasty.

    Love The Shoes Says:

    So grown up of them and why not. I love this so much. It should put to rest the sily stuff. This is just like Brad buying a stroller for Gwyneth and Chris when Apple was born. Grown ups get over it and move on.

  23. 73
    Rose Says:

    @gracie: #62, didn’t Angie said BBT was there for her when her mother passed? I also see nothing wrong with her trying to help him with his book. Remember, Angie had said she would be willing to meet with SS, but I guess, SS would rather keep a feud going than to be a civilized grown up and stop this silly feud. But this feud has kept her in the public eyes for seven years and counting. Without Brad and Angie no one would be talking about her now.

    Yikes Says:

    Angelina is such a media wh*re now. Anything to be on the news, even if connected to a perverted old man.

    And that cover is just scary.
