Why did Billy Bob Thornton’s new marriage happen so secretively?

Billy Bob Thornton was on The Late Late Show with James Corden this week, where he was asked by Corden about the number of bachelor parties he had had. (Not that many according to the 60-year-old actor).


But when the subject got onto marriages, Corden asked why Billy Bob Thornton’s new marriage was kept so secret? After all, he’d been with his girlfriend, Connie Angland, for 12 years when they got married two weeks ago.

Thornton said they had actually ended up getting married for their daughter, who is 11 years old, as he didn’t want her to wonder “Why aren’t my mommy and daddy married?” after they had been together for so long. And they had decided to have a small home wedding in their front yard. But, no, it wasn’t secret at all.

Thornton then went on to explain why he didn’t want to get married before. Watch the video below to find out why.
