Billy Bob Thornton (born on August 4, 1955) is an American actor, filmmaker, and singer-songwriter who has received critical acclaim for his roles in films such as Sling Blade and A Simple Plan.
Thornton has stated in interviews that he is not particularly interested in food and that he has a “monkish” diet. He has also mentioned that he only indulges in one type of food: bananas.

I just eat to live.” He has since said that he follows a vegan diet and is “extremely healthy”, eating no junk food as he is allergic to wheat and dairy.
