Earlier this month, Billy Bob Thornton had an awkward interview with CBC show Q. Thornton sat there being difficult when the host, interviewing him about his band, introduced him as an actor, something Billy asked him not to do.
Billy Bob went on Jimmy Kimmel last night and talked about it. For him, it was surprising that it was news. He said he does that all the time when hosts don’t adhere to his requests. One time he told a host that he had a metal plate in his head and received signals from Venus. He also joked that the interview “gave humpbacked geeks all over the world something to do for a couple of days.” Kimmel, of course, gave Thornton a verbal handjob, giggling over everything he said.
Hey, remember when Jimmy Kimmel was on The Man Show? Back when he used to be fun? Now he pretends he’s just like the stars he interviews. He’s like that geeky kid on the playground that agrees with the cool kids just to fit in. Brad Pitt could call him a raging sycophant on live television and Jimmy would laugh and say, “I am aren’t I? You are the man, Brad!”
