Billy Bob Thornton acts like a jerk.

Q radio host Jian Ghomeshi interviews Billy Bob Thornton, as Thornton is in Canada for a six-date mini-tour with his band, the Boxmasters. Thornton had apparently issued strickt instructions for the interviewer, saying that he was not to, in any way, make reference to his film career. The idea of telling someone, before you are interviewed, what they can and can't ask, is OK (to some degree in some situations), but really then you're just doing a commercial for yourself. And this may well end up being the worst commercial Thornton could ever have done for himself. What a jackass!



Thornton also makes time to bash Canadian audiences (at the 11:30 mark of the video), and generally comes off like a douche. The idea that he doesn't want to make reference at all to his film career really IS bizarre. After all, I would speculate (and this is of course just speculation) that his band would not have chosen him to be their frontman if it weren't for his famous name...and how did he get that famous name?

  1. you know I was at the Ottawa show and they (the boxmasters) were pretty damn good. They have a really unique style with the blend of old time country and 60s british invasion,great musicians I was surprised actually at the level of talent. I thought this is cool and way to go Billy. But after hearing his interview on CBC, man what a jerk, the other members of the band were cool but sounded (looked)embarrassed by his bull**** Can't see this band having too much staying power if BBT keeps "ACTING" like this. Which is too bad

  2. Yea, one of those! The dj did a great job, regardless. I will agree that the english-canadians are rather "cold", though...

  6. Who does this guy think he is anyways? A famous movie star who can go on live radio and act like a famous movie star? Billy Bob should go back to what ever rock he crawled from under and get him some "FRENCH FRIED 'TATERS"
    If it were not for his acting career, we would never know of BBT and his unprofessional conduct.
    Grow up Mr. Thornton, and get over the loss of Angelina........
