Billy Bob's Country Girl

4 September 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Billy Bob Thornton has found yet another new woman to dote on, just three months after splitting from his actress wife Angelina Jolie. The Oscar winner has been romantically linked with 23-year-old actress Danielle Dotzenrod and his ex-wife Pietra since Jolie filed for divorce - and now it looks like he has turned his attentions and affections to country singer Deana Carter. The pretty star has been spending time with Thornton on the set of his new movie Bad Santa and the actor has even agreed to direct her new video "There's No Limit." Carter, who met Thornton when they worked together on movie The Badge, says, "We have a really great chemistry together. I respect him so much. I'm just loving him for who he is right now. I just went through a divorce last year after being married for six years, so I know how difficult it is. I just try to be a good friend." »

Billy Bob's Film Saved by Cable Film Channel

3 September 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The film Billy Bob Thornton feared he'd never see has been saved from oblivion by an American film channel. Movie executives turned their backs on The Badge because it was so similar to Thornton's acclaimed role in Monster's Ball. In both, the actor plays a smalltown law man coming to terms with his own bigotry. Director Robby Henson feared his second feature would become a straight-to- video disaster after production company Propaganda Films went bankrupt during post-production and other companies refused to take on the project. But cable channel Starz came to the rescue of the star-studded film, which also features Patricia Arquette, William Devane and Jena Malone, and they plan to air it as a special feature this coming weekend. Henson says, "Everyone is delighted. This is a good film with great performances. It was kind of orphaned for a while and then Starz stepped in and they've been very good for the film." »
