In a previous interview with PEOPLE, Billy Bob Thornton said he tries to “strike a balance” between his various creative endeavors and his family life, which includes his wife Connie Angland and their 17-year-old daughter Bella.
This week, Billy Bob Thornton brought date night to the red carpet.
The 66-year-old Academy Award winner and his wife Connie Angland made a rare public appearance together as they left for the Hollywood TCL Chinese Theatre’s Thursday action film The Gray Man premiere.
He wore a sleeveless black t-shirt, matching faded trousers, and a pair of worn-in grey boots to keep things casual. Thornton accessorized with a cognac leather belt, round gold-framed sunglasses, a black fedora worn atop a blue bandanna, and layers of silver jewelry.
Angland, 57, completed the ensemble with a pair of black strappy stiletto heels. She paired her spouse in a black lace knee-length dress with short sleeves and a see-through turtleneck cutout.
Following a 12-year relationship and the birth of their daughter Bella Thornton, now 17 years old, in 2004, Thornton and Angland secretly wed in October 2014. According to their representative at the time, the couple wed “at their home in Los Angeles during a private ceremony before family.”
The Goliath actor is also the father of boys William, 29, and Harry, 28, and daughter Amanda, 43, from other relationships. He has previously been wed to Angelina Jolie, Toni Lawrence, Cynda Williams, Pietra Dawn Cherniak, Melissa Lee Gatlin, and Cynda Williams.

Thornton, who also plays music and has released four studio albums, recently discussed with PEOPLE how he manages his various artistic pursuits with being a husband and a father.
In December, Thornton remarked, “I think I’ll probably attempt to achieve a balance between music, movies, and TV.” I mean, you know, if you can do one of each, every year if I can record and tour if I can do one movie and one TV thing, that looks pretty fantastic, you know? Additionally, I have children to look after, so why not?
