Bob Thornton got a star on Hollywood's Walk of
Fame Thursday - as well on a special greeting
on the pages of Variety from ex-wife Angelina
Jolie. "Billy, I love your brilliant mind... Congratulations!
With love and respect always, Angie," the full-page
trade ad read. Thornton joked to Associated Press
Television News: "You know, it's funny... I've
only met Angie Dickinson once."
49-year-old "Sling Blade" actor received his star
on Hollywood Boulevard as part of the promotion
for his new movie, "Friday Night Lights," which
is about high school football in Texas. "You can
try to be humble about this kind of thing and
say, 'Oh well, it's fine or whatever,'" Thornton
told the crowd. "But the fact of the matter is
it's a huge honor and I appreciate it so much."
