Billy Bob Thornton defers music careerDecember 30th, 2008 - 11:23 pm ICT by IANS
London, Dec 30 (IANS) Hollywood actor Billy Bob Thornton has put his music career on hold to pursue his acting career with lucrative returns from big budget movies.The 53-year-old began his career as a singer-songwriter in the late 1990s, taking the stage with his cover band, Tres Hombres.
But the “Monster’s Ball” star has been reluctant to return to the music business since the release of his third album in 2005, because his LPs have not been earning enough vis-à-vis his films, reports contactmusic.com.
“I’ve got to do movies because they pay lots of money. I grew up in the old music business, so that’s my first love,” he said.
