Billy Bob Traces the Irish in Him...

It has been reported in the Irish press that music and film star Billy Bob Thornton wants to join the trend of Hollywood celebs tracing their Irish roots.

Currently in Ireland preparing for his upcoming gig this Monday night, he professed his wish to find out his ancestors.

"My dad's people are Irish, and I want to find out exactly where they're from. My assistant is on the internet trying to look it all up for me. There's a bit of Irish on my mother's side too, but the rest is American Indian and Italian", he said.

With movies such as Armageddon and Man Who Wasn't There under his belt, and the soon to be released in Europe Monsters Ball (for which Halle Berry recently won Best Actress at the Oscars), Billy Bob is also an accomplished singer / songwriter.

His current album, Private Radio, has had critical acclaim in the U.S. He revealed: "I'm the luckiest man in the world. I once lived the life of a hobo and now I’m married to the love of my life. I also do the work I want – making movies and writing songs".

Explaining his reason for beginning his European tour in Ireland, he said: "There’s a great tradition of story telling in Ireland. And my show is very down-to-earth. I don't need a big stage for dancers or anything like that". will be there on Monday night, so be sure to check out our reports back!
