English term or phrase:in one scene
It's hard not to laugh at Thornton's phobias. A 48-year-old guy who's afraid of antique furniture is really off his rocker — assuming it's an old rocker.
"I don't know if it's a past-life thing, but I felt like some beheaded king," said Thornton, who went into shock after checking into a five-star hotel in London, when his ex-wife Angelina Jolie was filming Laura Croft: Tomb Raider.
"Maybe it's a past-life thing and I got beat to death with some old chair," Thornton later told Oprah Winfrey. "I don't really know. But anyway … I'm totally serious. And I can't eat around antiques."
Still, Thornton, an Oscar-winning screenwriter and A-list actor, is thriving in Hollywood despite his idiosyncrasies.
Halle Berry, who won a best actress Oscar staring opposite Thornton in Monster's Ball, says he was only able to eat in one scene if he used a brand new plastic fork, right out of the box.
