Well, we now know, or least we think we do, why Billy Bob Thornton was so short with his acceptance speech after winning the Golden Globe Award for his role in Fargo Sunday night.
In his speech, Thornton kept it short and sweet saying “these days, you get in a lot of trouble no matter what you say…I know this for a fact, so I’m just going to say ‘thank you.'”
However, after Thornton went backstage and did an interview with Access Hollywood‘s Billy Bush, and that’s when maybe he should have kept his lips shut after just saying “you get in a lot of trouble no matter what you say.”
During the interview, Thornton let a secret slip while playing a little game of ‘Who Would You Rather’ with Bush, which was a take off of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Golden Globe act on stage.
Bush asked Thornton ‘who would you rather – Reese Witherspoon or Jennifer Aniston; and Kiera Knightly or Jennifer Aniston?’
He responded, “Jennifer Aniston, lifetime goal. That’s all I’m saying.”
You heard him! And you know what we think – he wants to get back at Angelina Jolie! Whether he was joking or not, his answer was still pretty great.
