On Oprah‘s Master Class series, Billy Bob Thornton shares his personal story revolving around dreams, struggle and sacrifice. He left a small suburb in Arkansas to move to Los Angeles where he was barely making ends meet. He got a job at a pizza parlor and rented a tiny one-room apartment with his future writing partner, Tom Epperson. Aside from paying rent, the two of them only had $6 left each week to survive. Although they struggled, it only made his dreams stronger.
