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.

    Rose -
    What BI are you talking about? I generally don’t see them unless I go to Dlisted and MK’s making fun of someone.

    Like Brad said when Diane Sawyer asked him if Angelina broke up his marriage…..’ NO’ …..and followed up with ‘I KNOW MY TRUTH’…..Seems a few others did as well.

    Brad, an advise to you Says:

    Brad if you want Angelina to marry you, you just have to say you f*cked Angelina on the limo on the way to the oscars and that she f*cks like a couch. It worked with BBT.
    That’s Angelina my friend. Don’t say you respect her, such a whipped thing to say….. just treat her like the sc*m she is and you’ll have her at your feet.
    Years later she will write for your memoir book too, lol

    @Passing Through: PT, see my comment #103, yesterday. It should still be up on Blind Gossip, you have to scroll down now to find it. Two friends whispering, that’s the one.

    @dawne: #129,Yes, cc knew the truth, but the hens did not want to hear it. Anything to keep the lies going.

    Omg, Gerard Butler is in rehab. I thought he was on a diet,not. I looked on him and knew he was on drugs. They cover for who they want while lying about Brad and Angie everyday. However, sooner or later, the truth will come out.

    Very Cool M Lewis Interview @ 02/24/2012 at 11:24 am
    Short, but interesting interview with Moneyball book writer Michael Lewis- he describes Billy Beane’s reaction as he was watching the movie for the 1st time:

    Thank you Angelina Says:

    In Touch: Angelina Jolie & Billy Bob Thornton are pretty much hittin’ it

    Angelina Jolie knows Brad Pitt can’t stand her ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton, but that hasn’t stopped her from rubbing Brad’s face in her relationship with BBT every chance she gets. She’s even written the foreword to BBT’s memoir – even though she knew it would crush Brad.

    “Angelina doesn’t care what Brad says,” an insider shares. “she still loves Billy, and she always will.”

    And Angelina is doing more than just writing about the man she loved so deeply – she brazenly gets together with BBT when Brad’s not there, the insider shares. Angelina recently met up with BBT in Berlin, after Brad had left for London.

    “Billy came to visit her at her suite at the Kempinski Hotel,” the insider whispers, adding that BBT also spends lots of time there with Brad and Angelina’s six kids. Though Billy famously ditched Angelina immediately after she adopted Maddox, “Maddox calls him Uncle Billy.”

    Angelina’s selfish liasons with Billy Bob are all too humiliating for Brad – and hypocritical, considering that Angelina goes ballistic if he has nay contact with his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston. But clearly, she plays by her own set of rules.

    “Angelina and Billy Bob flirt like it’s 10 years ago,” the friend shares. “Brad is furious about it, but to her, that doesn’t matter.”

    @Brad, an advise to you:
    # 130

    With Anuston, she has to pay a ‘hotdog’ to be able to do it.

    @Thank you Angelina:

    Wow. And you believe InTouch? They are one step above the tabloid rags. If you go back and look at all their stories on AJ/BP/JA–most of them are false. They’ve been sued several times for all of their tabloid lies.
    Personally I wouldn’t believe a thing they say.

    Wonderbust Says:

    @Thank you Angelina:
    um how could Angie meet up with BBT if he was at the BAFTAS as well…wow so slow..anyways i read that Wonderbust budget is between 30mil-40mil so keep these numbers in mind when the hags come here and try to say it was a very low budget movie costing 15mil or so..they tend to do that when tickys numbers bomb

  12. 137
    To Wonderbust Says:

    Yeah and if it makes only $10 million they will say it will make up the budget in the coming weeks, but what happened to the argument that Aniston opens with big numbers???? All that goes to the wayside when her crap flops and this big, steaming pile of doo will definitely flop.

    new one Says:

    Funny thing , my previous comment is in moderation , and i only said that something ‘not nice’ is happening in JA’s land when AJ is being attacked by trolls

    plez Says:

    “You b*stard they are actually making the movie” that from Billy Beane is funny.

    lurker Says:

    lol trolls are losing it because her dud is having negative reviews and will easily be beating by a 3 week holdover safe house and can be beaten by tyler perry,and a docu film i hope the vow passes it

    plez Says:

    Julia Roberts is doing a movie with Streep. What? Wasn’t the most wanted “American Sweetheart” Aniston offered the role. Oh it probably does not have a scene the character has to go partly naked.
    It’s interesting that Witherspoon, Heigl and even Barrymore get lead roles for major studios but Aniston (most wanted Amereican Sweetheart) only get gf roles to funny actors and sometime an indie leading role.
    You jenhags need a realty check

    Media Wh@re MANiston Says:


    At least Brad loves Angie enough to obey her. MANiston told Brad what to do Brad couldn’t said adiós fast enough. Angie told Brad she wants bio kids and Brad said sure honey. Whatever you want I’ll obey. Does it bother you Brad obeys Angie and not you or MANiston? Well too bad. You just have to suck it.

    dianad1968 Says:

    Did anyone happen to catch Squiggy on Jimmy Kimmel last night? Is this the guy the trolls keep insisting is “sexier than Brad Piii…The Brad Pitt? LOL. The guy’s profile is hilarious. His head is HUGE on his shoulders, and makes him look like a bobble head doll, and he has a hook nose. Apparently that was his first talk show appearance EVER, so this a*s is bought and paid for. And you can see how much he is enjoying his new found notiriety. He and Ticky are a match made in heaven. They are no better than The Kardashians, or LeAnn Rimes…people who live the HW lifestyle at any cost. Ticky will sell her soul to be in the news. She and Squiggy are a joke. But mark my words, they WILL crash and burn.

    Rose Says:

    @dianad1968: #146, I missed him on JK last night. However, you have to remember every man she has been with they measured him up to BP. They would never say, eg, JM is hotter than VV. It’s always, JM is hotter than Brad Pitt. If she starts dating Charley Sheen they will say he is hotter than Brad Pitt. they know she will never have anyone hotter than BP. They can continue fooling themselves, only the hens are buying it.

    Annie Says:

    I like Billy Bob, always have. Yes, him and Angie moved on, but they are both mature adults (unlike some) and are able to still be good friends.

    Shar Says:


    Aside from his age and his over tanning, what is the difference between him and Justin Beiber? From dressing alike to both having irritating voices,I don’t see any difference between these 2. Except at 17, Justin Beiber is supposed to act immature. Justin T. acts and dresses like once he hit 17, he just stopped growing both physically and mentally.

    Media Wh@re MANiston Says:


    And you never fail to amuse us and act like an idiot at the same time. Thanks!!

    bizzy bee Says:

    Michael Simon from the chew chose MONEYBALL as his favorite movie and made a chilly dish in honor of the movie and said Brad is dreamy. Another dude not afraid to show his love for the Pitt!

    Angie will go UP in history as not only a beauty but a serious actress for our times, she’ll be talked and written about for centuries.

    What will Ticky be known for? Friends and that she was once married to Brad. Her only roles in the future will involve showing skin and playing the mom lol.

    english fan Says:

    Why shouldn’t she? They were married and she loved him. Maybe it was a mistake but the fact that she remains a loyal friend speaks volumes about her character.
