Billy Bob Thornton treated tourists to a rare glimpse of the reclusive star when they spotted him on the balcony of the home he used to share with ANGELINA JOLIE.

The actor was enjoying the Los Angeles sunshine when the STARLINE TOUR bus rumbled past the entrance to the Beverly Hills pile last week (ends06JUN03).

Delighted star spotters screamed a hello, prompting Thornton to smile and flash the peace sign.
