Billy Thornton is known and celebrated for his various achievements as a Hollywood filmmaker, actor, and musician. Over the course of his four-decades-old career, his accomplishments have been recognized and rewarded with not just fame but notable awards including Academy Awards, Golden Globes, and several others. But apart from this, the Goliath star is also known to have been in about half a dozen marriages. His current spouse, Connie Angland is ten years younger than he is and in this article, we take a further look at who she is and also discuss five facts about her.
Who is Connie Angland?
Before she became Connie Angland she went by Constance I Angland, daughter of Aggie Murch and step-daughter of Walter Murch. Her step-father, Walter is an Oscar-award-winning film editor in Hollywood. Due to a scarcity of information about Connie, much of her early life and education remains a mystery. We know her nationality is American though and that she was born on the 22nd of October 1964. She has three siblings, Carrie Angland, Walter Slater Murch, and Beatrice Murch.
Connie Angland is a bit of a camera-shy person and her marriage to her famous husband has not changed that, she likes to stay away from the limelight and this has helped her to keep her affairs private with very little details known about her personal life. Be that as it may, here are interesting facts about her.
Five Facts About Billy Thornthon’s Spouse
1. She Works With Her Husband in the Same Industry
Connie Angland works in the same industry as her husband although while most of her husband’s work is in front of a camera, on-screen, hers is usually behind the scenes. Apart from being married to the veteran actor and entertainer, Angland is also known for her work as a makeup/special effects artist and her career as a crew member in Hollywood has spanned nearly three decades.
Some of the notable films she has worked on include Arachnophobia (1990), Men in Black (1997), Phantom (1998), Stigmata (1999), Big Momma’s House (2000), Planet of the Apes (2001), and Men in Black II (2002). She has also worked as a puppeteer on such movies as Pet Shop (1994) and Demon in the Bottle (1996).XZZZ
2. She Had Her First Child at Age 40
Connie Angland met Thornton on the set of Bad Santa in 2003 not long after the actor ended his marriage to one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses, Angelina Jolie, his fifth marriage. Connie Angland and Thornton started dating in the same year they met and a year later, they welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Bella Thornton, in 2004. Bella is Angland’s first child and Thornton’s fourth. While Billy’s many divorces may suggest that Thornton is fickle with love, he absolutely adores his daughter Bella and the little angel has him wrapped around her fingers with the old man doing all of her biddings. The couple was first sighted together shortly after the birth of their daughter.
3. She Made Thornton Believe In Marriage Again
Despite Billy Bob Thornton’s apparent belief that marriage is not for him as stated by him after five attempts which ended in divorces, he again tied the knot with Connie Angland on her 50th birthday in 2014 after 11 years of courtship, perhaps the sixth time would be the charm. They had a private wedding ceremony held at the actor’s Los Angeles home, with just members of their families present. Their marriage was kept a secret from the public until they had their agents announce it after a couple of months.
4. She Has Make-Up Artist Sister
One of Connie’s siblings, Carrie Angland, is also a makeup artist like her. In fact, Carrie was the Key makeup artist on the set of Bad Santa, where Connie met her would-be husband, Billy Thornton.
5. Marital Issues
No marriage is without its ups and downs and Angland’s marriage is not an exception. In 2017, Johnny Depp alleged that Connie’s husband was having an extramarital affair with his estranged wife, Amber Heard. Given that Thornton’s record with adultery and women does not inspire a lot of confidence in him, the allegations being true was a possibility. However, the actor vehemently denied it saying he never had any form of a romantic relationship with Heard. Other than this near scandal, nothing about their marriage has made the news and that is probably for the best.
