Billy Bob Thornton Biography

Billy Bob Thornton was born on 4 August 1955, in Hot Springs, Arkansas USA, and is a well-known American actor, screenwriter, musician, voice actor, as well as a film director, perhaps best known now for his recent starring role in the anthology TV series “Fargo”.

So just how rich is Billy Bob Thornton? According to sources, Billy Bob Thornton’s net worth is estimated to be $45 million. Thornton has accumulated the majority of his net worth mainly through his career as an actor, which began in the 1980s.

Billy Bob Thornton Net Worth $45  Million

During his childhood, Billy Bob Thornton lived in a methodist family, and they moved around several Arkansas towns. After leaving high school in 1973, he was a good enough baseball player to try out for the Kansas City Royals, but injuries cut short that ambition. He actually enrolled at Henderson State University to study in psychology, but didn’t last a year.

Bill Bob Thornton then decided to try to pursue an acting career, and moved to Los Angeles in the mid-1980s. Initially, Thornton’s dreams proved to be unsuccessful, and he earned money by working a variety of jobs, including telemarketing and fast food management, in addition to auditioning for movie roles. While working as a waiter, Thornton met filmmaker Billy Wilder, who advised him to try screenwriting, but he landed a minor role of a counter man in a film called “South of Reno” in 1988, his first appearance on screen. Thornton was then cast in an episode of the television series “Matlock”, and the sitcom series “Hearts Afire” with Markie Post, but it wasn’t until “One False Move” that Billy Bob Thornton received public recognition, as well as critical acclaim. The thriller film co-written by Thornton was his first major introduction into the entertainment business, and provided a much needed boost to his net worth.

In the early 1990s, Billy Bob Thornton starred in such films as “Indecent Proposal” with Demi Moore, “Bound by Honor”, and “On Deadly Ground” with Steven Seagal, and so began began adding a significant amount of money to his net worth at this time. Later, taking the advice from Wilder, Thornton wrote, directed and even starred in an independent drama film called “Sling Blade” with Dwight Yoakam and J. T. Walsh. For his screenplay, Thornton received his first awards, an Academy Award, Writers Guild of America Award, as well as Edgar Award. After the success of “Sling Blade”, Thornton received offers to star in the sci-fi thriller film “Armageddon” with Bruce Willis, Liv Tyler and Ben Affleck, “Bandits” with Cate Blanchett, as well as Joel Coen’s “The Man Who Wasn’t There” that brought him even more awards.

In 2003, Thornton portrayed a memorably horrendous Santa character in the black comedy film “Bad Santa”, that earned $76 million in the box office. Some of Thornton’s more recent movies include the action thriller film“Eagle Eye” with Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan , as well as the comedy-drama television series “Fargo”, which was released in 2014. Overall, Billy Bob has now appeared in or directed more than 70 films, and 15 TV shows or series, and been nominated for over 70 awards in several acting and directing sections, of which he has won 28 at the last count, including for best actor and best supporting actor.

Billy Bob Thornton’s contributions to the entertainment industry were honored in 2004 when he was given a star on the sidewalk of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Billy Bob Thornton is a successful musician as well. In 2001, Billy Bob Thornton released his debut album “Private Radio”, which was followed by “The Edge of the World”, “Hobo” and “Beautiful Door”. Thornton has also been a part of a band called “Tres Hombres”, and is currently the lead singer of the country rock band “The Boxmasters”.

In his personal life, Billy Bob Thornton has been very active: he has married six times, the most famous being a very public one to actress Angelina Jolie, but none lasted more than four years until his last to Connie Angland in 2014, although they had been living together since 2003. Health-wise Thornton has obsessive–compulsive disorder, apparently partly exhibited by an unusual phobia to antique furniture.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on Fargo (2014)] It was one of the best experiences I've had and the people that were involved were really terrific and It was well put together. I've been humbled by the whole thing. I don't think there is such a thing as movie actors and television actors anymore I just think there are just actors now. If I had a friend who asked about going into television I would say yes because you have so much freedom in television now that you don't necessarily get in film.
2[on as a director, if there's more interference on a film, the bigger the budget is] Yes, I experienced that one time, I've only done one big-budget movie as a director (All the Pretty Horses (2000)). And there is much more interference, to the point where it shows you that if there's something wrong in the film business - that's what it is. Not to say that there aren't good big-budget movies, and that it can't be done, and some people aren't interfered with.
3Most of the movies that are easy to get financed are movies about models in gladiator uniforms and wacky comedies with kids who get caught with sheep in hotel rooms.
4[2007] I am fairly embraced by the Hollywood community, and I love making movies and I love acting, but I'm not real crazy about the Hollywood system. So the fact that they embrace me is a shock to me because I tell them to kiss my ass all the time. I don't understand why they haven't thrown me out on my ear. The other thing is I don't participate much. I have very few friends within the movie community. I hang out with some guys I've known forever. They're all broke and eat me out of house and home. But I stay home mostly and I don't go to the parties. Maybe that preserves me.
5People think the hard thing for an actor is crying and screaming, but that's easy. What's hard is a character who never tips his hand, who toes the line all the time. The hard stuff is never telling yourself, "Hey, I better do something here.".
6I've been married five times, and people think that's some bizarre thing, yet I've got buddies who refuse to get married and have sex with 15 people a week. I'm like "Which is better?" At least I was trying.
7It's not that I don't understand it. But people think if you speak with an English accent it somehow makes you smarter.
8I can't sit through plays and musical theatre. I just want to run up onstage and mess up their hair and turn over the furniture.
9Acting is playing--it's actually going out on a playground with the other kids and being in the game, and I need that. Writing satisfies that part of myself that longs to sit in my room and dream.
10I was the fattest baby in Clark County, Arkansas. They put me in the newspaper. It was like a prize turnip.
11[on his Academy Award nomination for Best Actor (Sling Blade (1996)] Getting the nomination is like gravy. Winning would be like whatever is better than gravy.
