Billy Bob Thornton

Proud and intensely individual, Billy Bob Thornton really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions.

For Billy Bob Thornton it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero in the play. Billy wants to be great, and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams.

However, Billy Bob Thornton likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally Billy needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
His strengths are Thornton's zest and love for life, his creative power, and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forget there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.

However he also has a heavier side which keeps Thornton's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown.
