Thornton, 59, and Jolie, 39, met on the set of 1999's Pushing Tin and married in 2000 after a whirlwind two-month courtship. Things only got weirder from there until they divorced in 2003.
"I mean, it was a crazy time," Thornton told The Hollywood Reporter at a Loyola Marymount University School of Film & Television event on Oct. 15. "I've never been fond of it."

Romance comes in many forms, and in the case of Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton it included wearing vials of each other's blood around their necks – something the actor said Angelina Jolie considered romantic.
The 59-year-old "Fargo" star spoke out about his now infamous body fluid-filled jewelry in a chat last week with students at Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television.

Billy Bob Thornton is finally opening up about that infamous blood vial he wore with Angelina Jolie! The actor stopped by Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television last week for a Q&A with the students. During the questions portion of his visit, Thornton was asked about that time he and Angie swapped vials of blood ... and sported them around their necks. "[A] vial of blood is very simple. Angie came home one day with a kit she bought," he told the students. "You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your grannie in it or something like that and wear it around your neck? That's what it was. She bought two of those. We were apart a lot because she's off making 'Tomb Raider' and I'm making 'Monster's Ball.' We were on opposite ends—we see each other for two weeks and whatever. »

We've been hearing about Bad Santa 2 intermittently from Billy Bob Thornton over the past couples years. The original film is now 11 years old, which means more time has passed than the time it took for Adam McKay and Will Ferrell to get Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues off the ground. Many fans have probably just assumed the project is dead and would never become a reality, but it sounds like the film is just stuck in the Hollywood development machine. Thornton recently took part in a Hollywood Masters discussion at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film & Television and talked a bit about the sequel. When asked what was going on with Bad Santa 2, the actor and occasional filmmaker said (via THR): "We’re just waiting for a script, ya know? We’re never gonna beat the first one but you got to get as close as you can. »

Angelina Jolie wearing Billy Bob Thornton's blood in a vial around her neck is one of the crazier things she's done for love, but according to the actress' ex-husband, it didn't seem all that crazy at the time. Thornton spoke to students at Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television last week and was asked about the Academy Award winner's infamous jewelry. "[A] vial of blood is very simple. Angie came home one day with a kit she bought," he said. "You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your grannie in it or something like that and wear it around your neck? That's what it was. She bought two of those.

The Fargo actor has signed up for a follow-up to the 2003 festive comedy, and despite looking forward to filming, he isn't sure it will match the original.
"We're just waiting for a script," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "We're never gonna beat the first one, but you got to get as close as you can. You just can't go and do it halfway so we're waiting for something that's close enough.
"It'll do real well, I imagine, and people will say, 'Well, it wasn't as good as the first one' and we'll say, 'Yeah, we knew it wouldn't be', but I think it should be fun and I think people who liked [the first one] will enjoy it and hopefully we'll get it off."
Vials of blood, dungeons and razorblades! Billy Bob Thornton's relationship with Angelina Jolie sounded pretty out there at the time. Now, the Fargo actor is setting the record straight about his "whirlwind" relationship with Jolie, although he does admit that time of his life was "pretty crazy." Talking with The Hollywood Reporter, Thornton, 59, explained the "vials of blood" that he and Brad Pitt's current wife became notorious for during the early 2000s, weren't all that they seemed. "I mean it was a crazy time. I've never been fond [...] »
It feels like we've been writing about a potential sequel to Bad Santa for a good few years now, without any sign of the film itself moving forward. It's become one of those projects that gets talked about, but is looking decreasingly likely to happen.
Speaking at Loyola Marymount University, Thornton said that "we're just waiting for a script", adding that "we're never going to beat the first one, but you got to get as close as you can. You can't just go and do it half way, so we're waiting for something that's close »
Billy Bob Thornton has been speaking about forthcoming sequel Bad Santa 2 to THR, and despite looking forward to the project, is refreshingly frank about how it will measure up to the original… “We’re just waiting for a script, ya know?” says Thornton. “We’re never gonna beat the first one, but you got to get as close as you can. You just can’t go and do it halfway so we’re waiting for something that’s close enough.” “It’ll do real well, I imagine, and people will say, ‘Well, it wasn’t as good as the first one’ and we’ll say, ‘Yeah,...

Prepare for the return of Willie T. Stokes! Since its release back in 2003, the holiday comedy Bad Santa has developed a sizable cult audience, and, as a result, it looks like a follow up is actually going to happen. Billy Bob Thornton himself has teased that Bad Santa 2 is currently in the early stages of development. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thornton was recently part of a special Q&A at Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television, and revealed that there are indeed plans to make a follow up to the Terry Zwigoff-directed Christmas dark comedy. The actor said that he thoroughly enjoyed crawling into Willie's skin because it allowed him to display his talents in a broad comedy that went out of its way to play for big, crude laughs. When the topic turned to a possible Bad Santa 2, Thornton assured the audience that it »
We reported in May 2013 that Entourage creator Doug Ellin has come aboard to write the script and possibly direct the sequel. Billy Bob Thornton revealed that they are still waiting for a script to come in, while admitting that the follow-up won't be as good as the first.
"We're just waiting for a script, you know? We're never gonna beat the first one but you got to get as close as you can. You just can't go and do it haflway so we're waiting for something that's close enough. It'll do real well I imagine and people will say, 'Well, it wasn't as good as the first one' and we'll say 'Yeah, we knew it wouldn't be' but I think it »
I liked Bad Santa when I saw it in 2003. I actually haven't seen it since then so I have no idea how it ages or holds up or any of that, but apparently there's an appetite for a sequel. Makes sense, I guess I'd probably check out Bad Santa 2 if it happens. A few years back Steve Pink was going to helm, but then those duties fell to Doug Ellin. Ellin is still busy wrapping up the artistic juggernaut of the Entourage movie, so even though there's a chance his Kubrickian penchant for perfection will keep him in the editing room for another few years on that project, one could also reasonably assume he'd make time for this sooner or later. If the script is good. That's what they're waiting on. Even though Billy Bob Thornton himself wisely admits there's no way they can top the first one (the »

Bad Santa 2 has been discussed for years, despite the fact that original writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa have moved on to their own directing career and there’s no indication that original director Terry Zwigoff will return. Rather, Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink was linked to the film, both as writer and director, […]

2003’s debauched yuletide comedy, Bad Santa, dashed any misguided notions that those who dress up to play the jolly chap are without issues. Billy Bob Thornton’s take on the rotund fellow completely veered away from saccharine stereotypes of a happy man who only wants to deliver cheer to everyone. Instead, his store-front Santa was a drunken slob who chased women and shirked his duties whenever possible.
In short, it was brilliant, and thus, rumours began to circulate about a second trip in his kinky sleigh for Bad Santa 2. The latest news we’ve had on the project landed in May 2013, when Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink apparently vacated the director’s chair to make way for Entourage creator Doug Ellin. At the time, Ellin was also reported to be working on a re-write of Johnny Rosenthal’s original script, which brings us up to date with the status of the project. »

Ever since its release in 2003, Bad Santa has become a Christmas staple for those seeking something a little bit more vulgar than the likes of Elf or It's A Wonderful Life. In a recent discussion at Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television, Billy Bob Thornton confided that there were still plans for a Bad Santa 2, and he has very realistic expectations for it. Thornton on a sequel to Bad Santa: We're just waiting for a script, ya know? »

A sequel to the 2003 cult classic Bad Santa might be in the works, actor Billy Bob Thornton told a gathering of students October 15 at Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television. In a wide-ranging interview that covered everything from his early days living in dire poverty to his overnight fame following 1996's Sling Blade to his horrified reaction living the life of celebrity during his years married to Angelina Jolie, Thornton said he was a great fan of his broad comedy as a nasty Santa. As for the sequel, "We’re just waiting for a script,"

I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
It’s kind of amazing how many classic Hollywood melodrama clichés are crammed into The Judge: father-son angst; small-town life; conundrums of American justice; there’s even baseball and pie. I’d even call it downright awards bait-y, except Robert Downey Jr.’s Oscar clip features too many fucks to work on network television. And yet, The Judge manages to avoid feeling as supremely calculated as it is, perhaps because Downey Jr.’s snark and Robert Duvall’s crusty pragmatism won’t allow it: the nearly trademarked qualities of the actors’ onscreen charisma vaccinate against it. So even as they play »
