What's something that Bad Santa actor Billy Bob Thornton hates? It's called the actor movie poster face.

If you happen to be a fan of movie posters you might have an idea about what Thornton is referring to.

During his visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Thornton talked about how much he hated the actor movie poster face and why his Bad Santa poster didn't make sense.

Thornton said he wasn't good at the actor movie face he just hated it so much, when Fallon brought the subject up. He said the studio and photographer manipulates your into one of two-three faces that are ever on movie posters.

Thornton said the main one is sort of staring off into the distance and Fallon gave it a shot but Thornton told him he was a bit too timid.

Thornton said his Bad Santa poster for the first movie was him with a cigarette in his mouth and a Christmas sack over his shoulder because that's what his character does. He had his sly look however, they took his cigarette out and replaced it with a toothpick, which made no sense to Thornton.
