Remember that brief but colorful marriage to Billy Bob Thornton? The matching vials of their blood?

"I went through heavy, darker times and I survived them," the Oscar winner, 36, tells 60 Minutes in a show airing Sunday.
"I didn't die young, so I'm very lucky. There are other artists and people who didn't survive certain things."

Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter, Amanda Brumfield, was sentenced to 20 years in prison Thursday after being convicted of aggravated manslaughter of a child in May, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
In October 2008, Brumfield was babysitting her goddaughter, 1-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia, who died while in her care in central Florida.
Brumfield, 32, was initially charged with murder in the child's death, but was found not guilty.
"I miss Olivia just as much as anybody does," she said at Thursday's sentencing before breaking down, according to the Sentinel.
