Billy Bob Thornton Talks About His New Book

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — From Sling Blade to Bad Santa and Monsters Ball, he is one of Hollywood’s most versatile actors.

And now Billy Bob Thornton is the author of, ‘The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts’.  I spoke with the Oscar winning actor Wednesday afternoon about opening up about dealing with OCD and dyslexia and feeling insecure. He hopes it will help others and says, “Yes, absolutely, you always hope that. If you’re able to put your own sort of problems out there if it can help someone else it’s always a great thing and there are a lot of people with those type of things.”

His ex-wife, Angelina Jolie wrote the forward to his book. He talks more about his book and his life Wednesday on Nightline at 11:30 pm, on ABC40.
