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.

    @gracie: #96, couldn’t have said it better.
    Was lurking at blind gossip, their is a blind item I swear it’s SS. Here is the item. BFF one is in film the other in tv are feuding because one overheard the other telling a group of people that her BFF divorce was because of selfishness. The friend wants everyone to feel sorry for her, but the friend couldn’t blame the x husband because no one in their mind could live with her.

    I am glad Brad adopted Maddox instead of BBT. Also, I am sure Brad is not jealous. Angie wouldn’t do anything that would make Brad unhappy and vice versa. The haters are trying to stir things up.

    Jolie and Pitt are forever trying to gain respect and shake their bad image off.losers.
    its not such a bad thing they hurt jennifer and hooked up,brad and jen’s relationship was coming to a end anyway,its the way they were heartless,smug and quick about it.
    jolie is a bisexual former s lut.she cant make friends because other women dont like her.and shes always way too serious like she has no sense of humor.
    no matter how many children’s lives they save they will always seem like ******** in many people’s eyes.
    it doesnt help that jolie looks like a cold witch!!
    JP fans,this woman will never achieve ”classy”. keep dreaming.
    her movies are action filled but always lacks heart/emotion/meaning/love.
    also I think its about time she checked into a eating disorder clinic.
    brad looks goofy,ugly and sad. they both always seem vain like they think they’re something much more than what they actually are.

    just saying my point Says:

    Aniston bf has a body and height like Sammy
    Davis Jr. He also has hair like Sammy. Justin is trying hard to get the same skin color as Sammy and they have the same facial features.
    Funny no one ever called Sammy handsome. Oh that is right Sammy never dated victim number 1
    Sammy was 5ft4

    Going on 8 yrs of a happy loving relationship with Brad and Angie . I really like both of them and am very happy for them that they met when they did.

    BBT is a good actor . Not every movie but i love a few he has done. We bought Slingblade . He wrote that book and worrked on that film for 6 yrs.
    No wonder he won all the awards that yr. Excellent movie.

    Angie has never held a grudge over her young failed marriages. She speaks with resspect of her first and sec. young marriages and does not blame the men. She just says her and BBT changed over night but she will never hate hhim. She moved on and grew up/

    BBT did grow up wwhen he was ready and now is settled with a wife and children. I have always heard that him and Brad get along famouly , they really like one another, respect each other.

    That’s the best way to go if you can do it and Angie is a kind natured woman who does not sit on tv talk shows like Chelsea Handler saying how she is a dirrty fighter who holds a grudge for a very longgggg time. No good to live in the past. Move on and have a great future like Angie and Brad have done.

    As for gossip about Brad being angry or whateves the only place you will read that crap is in the tabloids= garbage.

    Congrats to Angie and Brad for giving us a wonderful yr.!!

    Congrats to BBT on his new book.

    @well:

    BS!! Billy works constantly and he is also a touring musician. He filmed 4 features in the last two years. Pretty standard for a 30 year old so at 56 he is doing fine!

    Good morning Jolie Pitt’s fans. Two days to the grand entrance, I know the dress is going to be fabulous , I’m thinking long flowing grey gown, with open back to display those fabulous tattoos, can’t wait.

    Hoping we will get a sighting of the family today. Will ignore all the white noise starting today, tomorrow and Sunday. The excitement is too great. Happy times are here again !!

    and Angelina was used for publicity.

    Hhhhhh Says:

    Incest with the brother, sex with women, lie, adultery with another’s husbands, irrepressible vanity, arrogance, meanness, thirst of a profit
    In hell Jolie the greatest frying pan, near to Hitler waits
    Its fans will be fried on the next frying pans

    It marks at a policy, that is why it so praise highly. It is all for money. Nobody begins to praise such vile person as Jolie it is free. Unless – people sick mentally.

    Passing Through Says:

    Soooooooooo…TMZ says Bloatler’s in rehab. I thought his fans claimed he’s been sober since 2004 and dismissed the 10 million stories about him drinking as being evil lies manufactured by Bloatler-haters? It happens time and time again – the tabs and gossips spend so much time trying to get all up in Brad and Angie’s bidness and miss shite that’s right under their noses. This is a guy who’d been a jerk drunk or sober but I sure hope Bloatler gets well soon…and maybe he can give his old Butlerfinger buddy a call and let her know he’s reserved the room next to him for her and Handjob…

  23. 123
    Passing Through Says:

    Oops…my bad…seems that Bloatler is being treated for prescription paid med and coke issues. I’m sure he’s totally a teetotaler and doesn’t exacerbate his problems by drinking while taking Oxycontin and snorting coke. No sir…addicts NEVER do that…
