Angelina Wrote The Intro For Billy Bob Thornton's New Book!

Categories: Angelina Jolie

And it's really loving!

Now how is Brad Pitt going to feel about that?

The book is The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Gosts by Thornton and Kinky Friedman.

And Thornton's ex, Angelina Jolie, clinks metaphorical vials of blood with him and weighs in with a written appreciation.

She writes about Billy Bob:

"Most of all, he would die for his family. He has a big, beautiful heart."

But it's not all that simple. The man is complicated, Weird, even. A wondrous oddball.

"I have known him now for more than a decade," states Angelina, "and I still haven't quite figured him out.

"Not that I want to. The puzzle is so much fun."

Angelina goes on to note that Billy Bob is agoraphobic, has insomnia, has OCD, and he writes his scripts on yellow legal pads.

"Some people walk through life able to quiet the voices in their heads," offers Angelina.

"He can't. And I, and everyone else who knows him well, we love him for it."

And I love her for staying friends with the guy, complexities and all.

I wish my exes would help me write my books.

Actually I'm still waiting for the day when she'll go back to being scary. If only because her performances were also over-the-top, even if they were bad. (She hasn't done anything comparable to her work in Gia and Girl Interrupted - in short, since she became increasingly domesticated.)


He's agoraphobic, OCD, and has insomnia?? Stay away!


I had no idea they were still friends and that she could be so cool.
