First, let me say that I don't want to have sex with Billy Bob Thornton.
When he is on screen, his first goal is not to get people in the audience
to want to have sex with him. He leaves that ego shit at home.
In "A Simple Plan" he plays a really loopy retard. Billy Bob
doesn't try to sugar-coat it. He shows us that this reatrd is really messed
up and not someone that we would want to get close to. He cares enough to
assume we want to see the character, and not him playing the character.
If I were an actor and I weren't so Goddamn good looking (it's a fucking
curse), I would want to be Billy Bob Thornton.
