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.

    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 feel the same, bbt really wanted meet Angie in Berlin, apparently Angie didn’t meet him and I also think Angie skipped BAFTAS because she didn’t want to see him, she didn’t see his movie either in Berlin. Then BBT stirred up rumor he gonna write a movie inspired by Angie, then he denied it later. But he and Angie have the same manager Geyer Kosinski, Geyer maybe asked Angie to help BBT.

    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.
    Brad also hired Gwyneth starring in Brad-produced movie Running with Scissors.

    Angelina supported JML documentary when she was pregnant with Shiloh. Just because you trolls feel the need to hate doesn’t mean she has to live that way.
    When Paltrow won the Oscar, Brad sent her flowers. Even through he was with Aniston at the time. Would I expect such niceties from someone like Aniston. NO. She still hates her mother. (btw why wasn’t her mom at the star ceremony? )

    plez Says:

    Um see my post. I explain it very easily. Sadly there are some fans that want to pretend like Angelina did not have a past. Like Aniston fans want to pretend like she never dated Adam Duritz or she broke up a 14 year relationship.

    BBT knows very well if he didn’t get Angelina’s intro, he wouldn’t be able to sell a copy of the book.

    I can’t believe they keep bringing up that joke of a poll. The poll comes out every year. Aniston has been around for 15 + years and NEVER been on top. I don’t think she was even #2 . But we are suppose to belive she all of sudden get the top spot of all time. It embarrassing how her people feel they need to promote her body because she is limited in the the talent dept.

    Yes Rose, she did and she once told reporters who were trying to insinuate she may be embarrassed by her relationship with BBT, that she was proud she married him and that she has good relationship with all her exes. I see nothing wrong being friendly with an ex who sing your praises and always try to plump you up than tear you down. I don’t see why people don’t like BBT; sure, it is better to part on a friendly basis than have an ex who wants to destroy your family like Anuston. Angie and Brad are solid; they don’t have to hate their exes to prove how much they love each other. Brad has said Angie is not the jealous type, I’m sure if Anuston wasn’t so vindictive and a b!!tch, Angie would have extended hands of friendship to her but she is so jealous of Angie and spiteful. She refuses to accept that Brad fell out of love with her and has long made up his mind to dump her way before Angie got involved with him. Her campaign to destroy Angie is the only reason I despise her. I could care less about her and her life if she and her stupid friends will leave Angie and her kids alone.

    You didn’t know MANiston/Huvsy paid for this award. Just like she just paid for the Walk Of Fame award.

    gracie Says:

    # 80 plez , thank you. I forgot about that one — Brad sending flowers to GP. That’s my point, Angie doesn’t have to hate BBT to prove how much she loves Brad, it’s silly and childish and such behaviour only proves how insecure you are as a person. Brad and Angie are sure of their love for one another and doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. Why would anyone want to be like Anuston with low self esteem.

    You know, I never had a thought about this man one way or another, until recently.
    While he might not have been a great human being about his responsibility to his family and his relationships with women, he was Jolie’s choice. He didn’t trick, deceive or force her into marriage. She would have known he wasn’t a great father before she married him as well as his past history with women, it wasn’t a secret. She made her choice. As she’s said many times, she doesn’t regret decisions she’s made in her life. That’s what most of her fans has liked about her. She lived her life, no excuses given.
    Jared put this story up and it’s a conspiracy? Jolie is obviously in a good place with her relationship with this guy. It doesn’t mean I have to love him or like him, but I certainly don’t hate him. Or is it that some hate the fact, this story disproves THEIR opinion of BBT’s current relationship with Jolie? He said he, Jolie and Pitt were friends. It gets back, as it always does, to people wanting to be right. Let the truth just be what it is. You can’t stop it or run from it.
    I don’t get why anyone STILL cares about what non-Jolie/Pitt fans make of this news like this. It doesn’t discredit Jolie in any way. On the contrary, it show’s what a kind and generous person she is. If she wrote the forward, it can hardly be called coat tailing, it’s acknowledgement she is giving to his work of her own free will, which I’m sure she wouldn’t have done without reading the book herself.
    He obviously didn’t do anything to her which she considered unforgivable during their marriage or even afterwards. They didn’t have any children, so it wouldn’t have been a need to have any type of relationship with him afterward, unless she truly wanted to have one.
    She Should she hate him for not wanting to be a father to Maddox? She even said she never thought she’d be a mother. So, as I see it she changed her mind and he didn’t. People change, people grow up. As a fan, I’m happy that she did.
