Actor Billy Bob Thornton was seen with his family at the Puss In Boots premiere in West Hollywood, Calif. on Sunday (October 23).
The Monster’s Ball actor – who lends his voice to play the villainous Jack in the movie – posed for some pics with his girlfriend Connie Angland and their 7-year-old daughter Bella. The star’s older sons William, 17, and Harry, 18, joined the trio to take in the DreamsWork Animation flick.
The group was missing Billy Bob’s first born daughter – for good reason.
Amanda Brumfield, 32 – Billy Bob’s estranged daughter with ex-wife Melissa Gatlin – has recently been sentenced to 20-years in a Florida prison after being convicted of aggravated manslaughter of a friend’s 1-year-old child in 2008.
The actor – who was previously married to Angelina Jolie – admits to not being around during Amanda’s youth, which definitely had an emotional impact her.
“He’s pretty much made me feel like I’ve been shut out,” she reveals to Inside Edition in a 2001 interview. “I mean, I have nothing against him. I love him. He’s my father. I just want him to be around. I don’t want to cry, but it’s not fair to watch him on TV every day, and I can’t even get a call.”
Although the actor was not present during his estranged daughter’s court appearance, he did issue a statement:
“Anytime a baby’s life is lost is an unimaginable tragedy, and my heart goes out to the baby’s family and loved ones.”View Slideshow »»
