Billy Bob Thornton was in a car accident this weekend and had to be rushed to the ER. Thankfully, though, it appears he’ll be okay. This went down on Friday. Once again with Billy Bob, it appears that news about him doesn’t really come out until some time after, as in the case with his secret wedding. I guess the guy has a good PR team? In that they keep his private life fairly private? I don’t know.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Thornton was the passenger in a car that collided with another in West Hollywood around 6:45 A.M. We’re told the actor was complaining of a head injury so paramedics took him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to get checked out.
A rep for Billy tells us it was nothing serious but paramedics urged him to go to the hospital to make sure everything was fine … he returned to the set of his newest project later in the day.
So there you go…seems like everything is hunky dory. Very smart of him though to get it checked out. Serious pro tip: if you’re ever in an accident and after the accident, your head hurts, GO TO THE ER. Seriously.
