Hollywood phobic Billy Bob Thornton has finally confessed to the thing that terrifies him most - komodo dragons.

The MONSTER'S BALL actor, who has already confessed to fears of antique silverware and Victorian furniture, insists the reptiles are evil.

Eccentric Thornton says, "Dragons are evil. Komodo dragons have this horribly toxic bacteria in their mouths. When they bite you, you go blind.

"Then they all gather around you and watch you die like they are watching television. They don't eat you right away. They wait till you die. Then they eat you."
