Wait! What? Is Actor Billy Bob Thornton a Brony?

In a recent interview with GQ Magazine Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton talks about how he used to watch My Little Pony with his daughter and who his favorite ponies are:

Here’s an excerpt from the interview from GQ.com:

    “He and Bella used to watch My Little Pony together, and she grew out of that, but recently he longed to see it again and searched for it and found another My Little Pony, an updated tweeny kind of version, and they started watching it together. He’s been thinking about and relating to one particular multi-episode arc lately. In Ponyville, everyone has cutie marks, which are kind of like tribal tattoos on a horse’s hip—Applejack lives on an apple farm, so she has three apples on her hip. But Starlight Glimmer creates this new village where everyone instead has cutie marks that are equal signs, like: =.

    “I’ll let Billy take it from here: “This was amazing because the Mane Six ponies, who are the stars of the show, they go out there because Celestia, who runs Equestria, she will tell Twilight Sparkle she needs to go somewhere, but she doesn’t tell her why.” Bear with him, it’s worth it, I promise. “So anyway, suddenly they get captured by them and told that they have to remove their cutie marks and get equal signs. But they said, you know what? No. So Fluttershy, who is my favorite because she kind of talks like Marilyn Monroe, says, ‘Oh, yes.’” (He says this like Marilyn Monroe.) “Fluttershy acts like she wants to become a member, you know? And so they give her the cutie-mark equal-sign stamp and everything. And then she notices something, like it rains, and it washes off Starlight Glimmer’s equal sign, and she’s got her own cutie mark. So she’s like a Jim Jones cult, you know, right?” Suffice it to say that Billy considers these to be essential lessons for his daughter: Don’t be like the phonies. Don’t go looking to homogenize everyone like Starlight Glimmer. Wear your own cutie mark. It’s yours. And when he can do this for his daughter—focus on ways to bring the world into focus for her—that does his anxiety more good than all the spa music and DOGTV in the world.”

Here’s the synopsis:

“Shake your tail down to Canterlot High School, and learn how the rainbow rocks! Those funny and fabulous Equestria Girls are getting ready to enter their band, the Rainbooms, in the Canterlot High musical showcase. But there’s trouble brewing: former bad girl Sunset Shimmer just can’t make any friends; while rival girl band, the Dazzlings, are clearly up to something. Why do they want to turn the showcase into a mighty Battle of the Bands? Are the Dazzlings planning something much more sinister? And will Sunset Shimmer ever be forgiven by the other
students at Canterlot High? There’s only one way to find out: join the Equestria Girls as they try to defeat the forces of evil, with the help of Sunset Shimmer and everybody’s favorite pony, Twilight Sparkle! Sure, friendship is magic: but to restore the harmony, the band must battle!”
