The Billy Bob Thornton Meltdown

Posted by | April 11, 2009 13:50 | Filed under: Top Stories

CBC radio host Jian Ghomeshi kept his cool Wednesday morning when an agitated Billy Bob Thornton objected to his line of questioning.  Thornton objected to references to his acting career when he appeared to promote his band the Boxmasters.

The Oscar winner lost his temper with presenter Jian Ghomeshi when questioned about his passion for singing and how he finds time for music in between his acting jobs.


Thornton snapped, “Would you say that to Tom Petty?” and went on to blast his host for broaching subject matter the star had allegedly warned show producers was off-limits.


A confused Ghomeshi asked, “Are you reacting to the fact that I referred to you as an actor?” to which Thornton replied, “Yeah, I am, since you were instructed not to talk about [bleep] like that.”


He added, “We said, ‘Do not talk about [bleep] like that,’ and we also said not to discuss if music is my first love. You wouldn’t say that to Tom Petty, would you?”
