Billy Bob Thornton is not shy when talking about his sexual conquests, or his desired sexual conquests.
Case in point: He once came out and said a “lifelong goal” is to sleep with Jennifer Aniston.
This seems relevant because Thornton suddenly finds himself at the center of the very ugly Johnny Depp-Amber Heard divorce trial.
Amidst accusations of abuse against Depp by Heard, a new story went viral this week.
As first reported by TMZ, photos of Depp with a bloody finger will be used in the trial that is scheduled to begin on Wednesday.
Heard alleges that Depp sliced off part of this finger during one of his angry tirades.
But that’s not even close to being all.
According to Heard, the actor was drunk and high on ecstasy at the time of the incident – which took place in March while the stars were living in Australia for the shooting of the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
In his wasted rage, Depp took his severed finger top… dipped it in blue paint… and wrote a strange message on the mirror.
It appears as if the text reads, “Starring Billy Bob and Easy Amber.”
See, Heard had recently filmed a movie with Billy Bob Thornton and Depp was under the impression that the two carried on an affair.
It’s unclear if he had any evidence to back up this assertion.
Thornton, meanwhile, tells TMZ that the cheating allegation is “completely false.”
Yes, he appeared in the film “London Fields” with Heard… and there’s nothing more to the story. Heck, he never even socialized with the actress outside of a full cast dinner.
Billy Bob says he wouldn’t even consider Heard a friend. Their relationship was strictly professional.
Thornton has been married to Connie Angland since 2014.
He says he’s spoken to his wife about the rumor and assured her it was all in Depp’s head.
Last week, a disturbing video of Depp surfaced.
It was filmed several months ago by Heard (though NOT leaked by Heard, she insists) and it gives us an idea of how Depp can get into a seriously agitated state.

This whole thing is a sad and ugly mess.
Heard and Depp met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011. They got married four years later.
But there’s always been tension between the couple, with Depp notoriously jealous and Heard notoriously independent. That can made for a difficult combination.
Heard accused Depp of abuse in May.
Pictures of the actress with bruises on her face subsequently went viral.
On May 27, 2016, Heard walked into a Los Angeles courthouse with a black eye and filed for a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband.
She said at the time that Depp had been “verbally and physically abusive” to her throughout the “entirety” of their relationship.
Depp has denied these charges through representatives, but has not spoken out directly on the matter.
Both sides have a number of witnesses lined up for this week’s divorce trial, which promises to expose a lot more about their private life.
