Oh hey there, Billy Bob Thornton


I feel like I haven’t really seen Billy Bob Thornton lately – not in any movies, not in the press or in interviews… nothing. I’m not particularly complaining about that, I just realized he’s been kinda low key lately.

He was seen leaving the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on Thursday after attending a “meeting” – that’s probably code for “securing a new role”, so we might be seeing more of him sooner than I think!

Angelina Jolie told ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton about her double mastectomy before she told the public.

Angelina Jolie kept her double mastectomy under wraps for three months until she publicly announced the preventative surgery in May — but the revelation was no surprise to her onetime husband Billy Bob Thornton.

“I knew about it before the public knew,” Billy Bob says in the new issue of Life & Style, on stands now, about the 38-year-old’s surgery. “She wanted me to know so I wouldn’t freak out. When you’re great friends with somebody like that…you don’t want to hear it on the news.”

Though he and Angelina split more than 10 years ago, Billy Bob tells Life & Style that they still talk regularly. “She makes you a better person,” he gushes, explaining that Angie was a great wife to him — and will be the same to fiancé Brad Pitt, 49. “She’s an amazing person and makes you the best you that you can be.”

Angelina Jolie writes the forward for Billy Bob Thornton’s book, saying he “has a big beautiful heart”

Angelina Jolie and her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton are obviously on really good terms. Earlier this year it was reported that Billy Bob was writing a memoir, and Angelina Jolie had written the forward to it.

It’s been 10 years since the couple divorced, but the two remain good friends. In Billy’s new book, ‘The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts’, Angelina says her former partner “has a big beautiful heart.”

Life & Style has gotten their hands on the forward, and here is an excerpt:

“He has an unmatchable wit and can make you laugh until your face hurts,” Angie writes.

The 36-year-old actress, who got engaged to partner of seven years Brad Pitt in April, gives even more details about Billy Bob’s personality.

“To be with him is like being with a mad mathematician,” she adds. “He is constantly counting and repeating.”

Along with talking about the things the 56-year-old actor loves and dislikes, Angie admits the world, and she herself, would not be the same without him around.

“Some people walk through life able to quiet the voices in their heads. He can’t. And I, and everyone else who knows him well, we love him for it,” she says, ending with, “I know one thing: The world would certainly be a hell of a lot more dull if that man weren’t in it.”

Billy recently opened up about his marriage to Angie, calling the failure of their relationship his fault.

“I blew it because I didn’t think I was good enough for her,” he said. “She has one way she wanted to live her life and I had another way to live mine, and I was just too insecure.”

Billy Bob Thornton and Angie Jolie, who co-starred in the 1999 film Pushing Tin, married in 2000 and were divorced in 2003.

So many people ran with this story saying the couple were obviously still doing each other – but I’m not buying that.

Angelina Jolie writes the forward to Billy Bob Thornton’s new memoir!

Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie had an intense relationship that lasted for two years from 2000-2003. They were so crazy in love and all over each other. When you saw pictures of the two of them together, they were inseparable. It was like no one else was in the room but the two of them.

Last week the National Enquirer ran a story that Brad Pitt was “crying” over the fact that Angelina was planning on reconnecting with Billy Bob. Personally, I don’t buy it – but who knows. Angelina still has some feelings for Billy Bob at least in a friendly way, because she’s just written the forward to his new memoir!

No bad blood — or blood vials — here! Angelina Jolie has written the foreword to ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton’s new memoir, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts, a rep for the book’s publisher, HarperCollins, confirms to Us Weekly.

Jolie, 36, and Thornton, 56, were married from 2000 to 2003; during their intense, sometimes odd union, the couple famously wore vials of one another’s blood around their necks. Jolie and Brad Pitt have been together (but not married) since 2005. Married five times overall, Thornton and makeup artist Connie Angland have been in a relationship since 2003.

“We talk every now and then,” the Faster actor said in late 2010 of Jolie. “She seems to be doing very well directing her own movie [In the Land of Blood and Honey], which I am so proud of her for. She’s real smart, and very creative, and I think it’s a great job for her.”

Cowritten with country music singer and author Kinky Friedman, The Billy Bob Tapes promises to tell, according to book description info on Amazon, “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.”

I forget that they were actually married! His book would be incredibly interesting, I bet. And we know he can write! He wrote Oscar-nominated A Simple Plan and much-loved Sling Blade.
