Billy Bob Thornton took a special guest to the premiere of his new movie Bad Santa on Tuesday night (18NOV03) - pal John Ritter's widow Amy Yasbeck.

The kind-hearted movie star invited Amy to join him at the screening of her late husband's last film - because he felt it was important she saw it.

He says, "I just felt that Amy really needed to see the film because John is so amazing in it and I thought it would be good if she was with a friend when she saw it."
