Thornton's problems begin in a half-starved childhood - Billy Bob grew up in a poor family of a psychic woman and a baseball coach. Childhood health problems have carried over into adulthood - Thornton has treated the heart several times and suffers from a whole bunch of phobias, which are aggravated by hypochondria. As he got older, Thornton aggravated his health with drugs and alcohol.
Another problem Billy Bob Thornton had for his entire life was a failed relationship. The first three marriages of the actor, with Melissa Lee Gatlin, Tony Lawrence, and Cinda Williams, lasted only 2 years - for one reason or another, the girls could not stay with Billy Bob.
Billy Bob's fourth marriage to Pietra Don Cernyak brought him two sons, but he was also cracked at the seams. After 4 years, the couple divorced, and Thornton received a ban on dating with children. Learn more about Billy Bob Thornton's marriages and divorces here.
The marriage to Angelina Jolie was especially memorable for the actor and eccentric for the fans. The couple were in love and got together in oddities: they wore medallions with drops of their own blood and gave each other places in the cemetery. However, Jolie could not endure Thornton's violent temper, ending all romantic ties with him.
By the time he was in his seventies, Thornton’s life began to improve. He quit smoking, got rid of drug addiction, and in 2014, at the age of 59, Thornton married Koni Angaland, the only girl who could pacify the actor's violent temper. This marriage was the longest and happiest in Thornton's life. You can see how other Hollywood actors have changed after 50 years in a photo selection from the editors of the Zoomboola.
