Billy Bob Thornton acts like an ass and insults an entire country while he's at it.
Well, it is probably one of the most awkward interviews I've ever seen.
((The actor apparently took issue that host Jian Ghomeshi kicked off the interview with references to Thornton's career as a Hollywood actor, director and screenwriter.
For much of the ensuing chat, Thornton refused to answer any of Ghomeshi's questions directly, mumbling: "I don't know what you're talking about."
He later said Ghomeshi's producers had been instructed ahead of time not to talk about his film career at all. ))
Billy Bob just asks like little child and refused to answers questions and when he did they were random things. (He mentioned a monster collection.)
So, he didn't want people asking him about his acting and writing career. Big deal, Billy Bob, you've had an actor first and you wouldn't be interviewed because of your music alone.
Stop, acting like a complete dick.
Then, he proceeds to insult the entire country of Canada...while he's touring there.
Now, the funniest part of the is story is Billy's band The Boxmasters has canceled the rest of their Canadian dates.
((But a note posted on Nelson's website Friday said the Boxmasters were cancelling the remainder of their Canadian swing, including gigs in Montreal and London, Ont., "due to one band member and several of the crew having the flu." ))
I guess this 'flu' is the asshole flu, and the member that is sick is Billy Bob.
Perhaps, the Canadian audiences wanted to see a real performer like Willie Nelson, instead of an one note actor's hobby band. (Remember, Dog Star?). (I like Billy Bob's performances as an actor, but they're the same characters over and over again. He plays an asshole all the time and I guess in real life too)
-Here's a spoof video with Billy Bob and Joaquin Phoenix.
-Here is Billy Bob trying to sing.
-Maybe he's just pissed he's not banging Angelina Jolie anymore.
-The radio host was awfully nice. I would have told Billy Bob to go F' himself after the second “I don't know”.
