Thornton Plans To Escape To Canada For 50th Birthday

Hollywood actor BILLY BOB THORNTON is so disturbed at the prospect of turning 50 on 4 August (05), he's considering spending the day in Canada so that it "doesn't count".

The BAD SANTA star, ex-husband of sexy actress ANGELINA JOLIE, has decided that being outside of his native America when his birthday falls will somehow delay the aging process.

He jokes, "I heard that if you're over an international border on your birthday it doesn't count, so I'm going to Canada. It's like a leap year, you get to skip the birthday.

"I never worried about birthdays and I'm still not that worried about it, but 50 is a little different to the rest because when you start thinking about the sheer numbers, it's like a half century. It is a psychological thing."
