The Most Nightmarish Interview I've Ever Heard

Billy Bob Thornton is apparently in a band called the Boxcutters. They're a real big deal, at least in Billy Bob Thornton's mind. So big a deal, in fact, that he'd rather his movie career not be mentioned in the context of a radio interview. Perhaps, "rather" is too moderate a word. What I mean is: If you mention that he's an actor, he will cut you. Or, at the very least, become the biggest fucking toolbox you've ever heard: A petty, belligerent, stupid, loutish, despicable man.

I'm not exaggerating here, people. And the poor interviewer, the CBC's Jian Ghomeshi, does as best as you can imagine with the situation, but it's a lost cause. It's awkward. Embarrassing. And irredeemable. Thornton is either angry and non-responsive or he just speaks spiteful gibberish. Listen for five minutes and if you don't loathe Billy Bob Thornton afterward, then there is something wrong with you. You will be shocked. And appalled. And disgusted.
