Billy Bob Thornton

Most people may know him as the ex-husband of Angelina Jolie but Billy Bob Thornton has had a long career in front of the cameras. He would often lose or gain weight for a role and after dropped almost 60 lbs following the 1997 movie “U Turn,” he struggled putting the weight back on. “I think I had a little mental problem,” Thornton said. “I got anorexic; of course, I denied it to my girlfriend and everyone else who said I had an eating disorder.”
