Billy Bob Thornton had a private reading of his new book (yes, the one that might or might not strike fear in the heart of his ex-wife Angelina Jolie) – he read excerpts from the book to a group of his friends who found it very entertaining. One buddy of his presented him with a gift – a t-shirt that said “TRAUMATIZED BY MEDIOCRITY.” Billy Bob was so delighted by the shirt that he HAD to know where it came from (JGerard/“Peace Gallery” on Melrose Avenue) and he plans to visit the store and buy more. Photo above, Billy Bob is in Century City with his daughter Bella.

    Close one! Saw the pic and thought we were being treated to “Billy Bob and his new lady-love, hand in hand.” 🙂

    LOL! It wouldn’t surprise me either!! He’s such looney.


    This 56 year old freak is an excellent if not brilliant writer and actor. However, the brilliance ends there.

    He is a nut case with bizarre phobias (antique furniture phobia & another one involving silverware). He’s been married 5 types and has 5-6 kids. It appears that he floats from one woman to the next as the mood hits him. He and his equally nasty ex-wife (A. Jolie) wore each others blood around their necks and bragged publicly about their bedroom adventures.

    He once suffered from malnutrition (due to lack of work and money). Yet, when he was born, the family put his photo in the local paper because he was such a fat baby. LOL!!!

    I can’t wait to read this guy’s book. I hope it is an accurate account. Either way, it’s going to be entertaining. 🙂

    This guy is nuts. He’s afraid of tapestry, velvet and heavy furniture for God’s sake.

    In the early days of his career, he was also apparently deathly afraid of toothbrushes.

    Now he has a mouth full of caps.

    There may be a lesson there! 😉

    Wouldn’t it be wicked fun to have the funds to send him some cool gifts at Christmas time?……a box of tapestry, an array of toothbrushes, a roll of velvet…etc. LOL!!!

    Ok I looked up more stuff he’s afraid of.
    In addition to his aversion to silver cutlery, velvet, and “creepy, castle-y stuff,” Thornton confesses that “pieces from 1700 and 1800 France and England really freak me out, especially harpsichords.”

    Walt, I’ve got tix to see the Reverend Horton Heat here next month. He’s got a great song called, “Where In The Hell Did You Go With My Toothbrush.”
    I will take my ear plugs.
    Billy Bob’s band was run out of Canada because Billy Bob is an ignorant slob, mouthy, dick.

    If Billy and Angie had stayed together they would have killed each other. Angie made reference to this shortly after they got hitched and she meant…killed each other under the sheets.

    Anyway, whatever he does, he is completely nuts and not attractive either.

    How the hell can you be afraid of harpsichords? But since tapestry frightens me too I do understand that one.

    I hadn’t realized he had so many children. It seemed to me that as soon as Angie adopted Maddox he was gone with the wind. I thought maybe he was not the fatherly type.

    Recent visit to the dentist, I have plenty of free toothbrushes if anyone needs one.

    He has phobia about harpsichords? That just makes me bust out in fits of unmanly giggles. That’s just too funny.

    I don’t normally make fun of someone or anyone that has phobias or illness. I hope he has conquered them and/or getting the proper meds for them. However, it is the type of things that he is afraid of that are so unusual that I can’t seem to help but find them amusing.

    I knew a girl in high school that was smart (smarter than me anyway), athletic and head of the debate team. She was also afraid of a cow puppet. Poor thing was terrified of cow puppets (although not too many of them just lying around). She use to stomp me good in debate and outrun me on the field. It took all I had to not to sneak up behind her with a big ole cow puppet and put me out of my misery. LOL!!! I never did though!!!

    Good Afternoon! 🙂 So sorry to hear about the tapestry thing.

    I do think you should send any excess toothbrushes to Kooky Billy. lol It would give his kids something funny to watch. (Gee, watch daddy scream and climb the walls. Climb daddy climb!!!! 🙂 LOL!!!

    I had almost forgotten about his “music career.” I recall there was a couple of bizzare interviews when he was “touring” around the country with his “band”.

    He just wanted to talk about the music and he would immediately be defensive if someone seemed surprised that he sang. Pitiful. The music was “okay”. Yet, no greater than those you would find at your cousin’s trailer park wedding.

    Earth, Wind, and Fire!!
    Earthquakes, Hurricanes and Opinions!!

    You all can believe what you want, and I am Not one to start gossip or rumors, But, and I am going to say it. That was some convincing acting (out) between BBT and Halle Berry in Monster’s Ball. Say what you want, but I’ve got eyes, and I know what I saw. I didn’t Need my reading glasses to see the “revelations” in those torrid loves scenes between those Award Winning Co-Stars!!

    “Now, we’re not ones to go ’round spreadin’ rumors,

    Why, really we’re just not the gossipy kind,

    No, you’ll never hear one of us repeating gossip,

    So you’d better be sure and listen close the first time!”

    Hey Buddy!

    Sarah Jessica Parker walks into a bar, the “bartender” take one look at him and ask, hey!! why the long face?

    Okay, I am just being mean. I’m much nicer when I’m jacked up on cheesecake or milky ways. LOL!!!! 🙂

    Hey Grandpa….what’s for supper? (I’m still on the Hee Haw kick. lol )

    …..homemade red potatoes, fresh green beans, chicken breasts, homemade biscuits, gravy, corn on the cob and my angel made us a blueberry tart. So darn good and I’m full as a tick.

    My wife always tells me that she is making “Coot Pie” (remember that from the Beverly Hillbillies Show?). I never knew what “Coot” was suppose to be!! LOL!!!

    This old coot is going to sleep in a few minutes. Hope everyone has a great night!! 🙂

    Vittles is spelled victuals. Learned that working on ships. Victualing the ship in foreign ports, pronounced vittle ing.
    Coot is a game bird.
    You hillbilly freaks.

  33. By Walt Cliff

    “You hillbilly freaks”

    LOL! Did you say that you learned it from working over the sailors on the ships? I see. There’s no shame in having to trick for your vittles. I think Leo and I understand. LOL 🙂 (just teasing)

    Walt, on Her Majesty’s Canadian ships between the racks there is a board to separate the sleeping sailors. That board is called the buggery board. For obvious reasons. My ship was a research vessel so we were co-ed. Thank you, God.
    Buggery wasn’t an issue with all of those delicious, nerdy, lonely, deep sea nervous, female scientists however.
    Rock and Roll me little mateys, rrrrrr.
    There were lots of Coots close to shore, they are similar to Buffleheads. Deep sea were Albatross.
    Victualing in San Francisco or Portland was always a treat.

    Billy Bob has his path in life and that made him end up with a daughter and..He looks really happy and on top of the world and in life Ex are pass relationships that did not work out and after a Divorce who cares where your mate went? Or what type of life they are living and what direction that persons life took..Face the fact…He never had children with his Ex and there fore there is no tie of a relationship together. But in life it is better to love then never love at all.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
